Mercury Racing marks service anniversary

Mercury Racing is celebrating the third anniversary of the Factory Fresh engine refresh service for 850 SCi, 1025 SCi, 1075 SCi and 1200 SCi consumer sterndrive engine packages.

The factory-direct service, based at Mercury Racing's world headquarters in Fond du Lac, Wis., features a complete inspection and refresh of the engine. In addition to the block, the crankshaft and all other rotating components are washed and magnafluxed to ensure the metallurgy's integrity.

After the long-block assembly has been refreshed, it goes through Mercury Racing's electrostatic, high-solid, polyurethane paint process to bring the engine back to "like-new" condition.

Consumers now have the option of updating the color of their engines as part of the engine refresh. A total of eight color options, first available on new Mercury Racing sterndrive engine packages, provide boaters with an array of color combinations to complement the paint schemes offered by today's performance boatbuilders.

Retail price for the refresh of one engine is $22,810. The fee covers labor and replacement of parts included in the standard refresh kit. The only additional charges are for parts and services selected from the optional update kit menu and additional parts repaired or replaced as stated above.

A factory-spec shipping container is included in the price to ensure safe transport of the engine to and from the dealer or OEM boat builder. Customers are provided with a toll-free phone number to take advantage of Mercury Marine-negotiated shipping rates.

Mercury Racing is a division of Mercury Marine.
