    Blown motor? How blown? Everyone has a different definition of a blown motor.

    A rod poking through a hole in the crankcase is bad, low/no compression maybe not so bad. I would fix it.

    It's really bad, blown crankcase, pision and rings are fried melting to the crankcase and bent shaft rod.   I ran it wide open without looking the motor doesn't pee at all and got blown up running thru thick mud :-[

    $1200 for parts and labor for whole new powerhead assembly and shaft rod/linkage. I own this motor since brand new 03 merc and it's has about 500 hours on it.

    Buy a shortblock, bore it .30 over, shave the head, put in high comp. pistons and up the jet size in your carb.

    Still less than the price of a replacement and you'd have one sick 25!

    I think you'd be better off rebuilding what you have. $1200 is a lot of $$ but you'd have a great motor with mostly new parts.

    I doubt you could find another motor for anywhere near that $$, and then you're dealing with an unknown motor again, which could possibly have issues of it's own.

    Unless the crankcase has a hole in it, I will rebuild it for you in trade for your 15hp Yamaha w/ the tiller pillar. I'll even pick it up and deliver it to you. ;)
