I'm looking at a boat with a 60 tracker 2 stroke. Anyone have any opinions on this era/size merc? I know they are more reliable than they used to be, but I have no experience with them. Any opinion or advice is appreciated.
I have a 95 Merc 150hp Black Max. It's pretty unbustable. I've run it on 5 cylinders and not known until I was off the water. User error. Forgot to connect a spark plug wire. I have my minor issues with it now and again but without constant maintenance any motor will do that.
You should check compression and spark. Water test if possible. Tracker at one time used force motors as well as mercury. The force was called the power series and the merc was the pro series. although they did not make a 60hp force so that should be the merc. If you have any questions I would be happy to help. Good luck. Joe Franzwa
