eeemanjam: are these as powerful as todays 150 hp ?
jason35177: I wouldn't mind trying out one of those stainless 3 blade props. It appears
my speedo is way out my mobiles GPS says I am doing 10km/h faster than the
Tony Rich: Great to see a tower of power. My mate had one years ago. Great thatr they
are still noisy as all hell. My mate had a 135 HP L6, I had a 140 V4 cross
flow OMC. His young fellows comment, "Dad can we get an Evinrude "cause
there quieter". Smooth running he was 2 MPH faster at 45 MPH. Rough water
the OMC ran 50. Great motors but painful to work on.
Stan M: Two stroke rule THERE just now OPTI Max's Merc tower of power lives on.
Twice the mileage too
jason35177: Thanks for all the comments all!!! It's been threes years since this video
was uploaded and I still have her.. but this time i have an excillery motor
6speeddakota .: @johns78c They aren't banned, they just aren't allowed to be produced
anymore due to the horrible emissions they put out
merctech417: the old tower of power. also known as a " tall nigger" what a great motor.
who new merc would bring this back in 03 with a supercharger and pump 350
out of them..... gotta love it
David St. Pierre: The guy who is doing our landscaping has 2 of these on his speed boat!
David St. Pierre: @merctech417 The only problem is is that the verado's are too quiet. They
should make optimax's inline six.
ward6226: You can thank the environmental whacko for giving us 500 pound 150 hp that
require oil changes and valve adjustments. Gone are the days where the
in-line mercs and the v-4 Omcs dominated the waterways and were there to
tow the Chryslers in. Ofreko's 747 and Algore's G-3 pollute more on one USA
apology tour than all these old motors could polute in a year.
mark king: wo dude where did that come from
Tom Dee: aound 0:43 i think you went over 5500 rpm, they suck in reeds too high up
mycurse333: my murc wont run right now so i am reduced to watch damn vids lol
jason35177: All I can do now is just watch my video now! I have this motor pulled down.
Painting it and putting new decals on it. Getting rid of the old cable
pulley steering and fitting teleflex type. Tired of pumping the fuel bulb
so fitting facet electric pump. The timing belt snapped on my last outing!
It's second time water police have had to tow me :( time before that was
the gearbox failure due to oil going bad. My fuilt!
eeemanjam: childhood memories, I loved them then and love them still :)
fgasser1: I remember these engines as a kid. The exhaust coming out of these engines
were strong because it shot it out the prop. When we were water skiing we
called them "TALL STINKEN NIGGERS"!
x3mgabriel: Son un fierro .Aguante el mercury no máás.
jason35177: Apparently they have have less torque than other current 150hp motors..
jason35177: Good question! I havent got a tacho i think its around 5000rpm.. The boat
had heaps of weight in it that day..
Joey Dorsey: @itstomd wow! a human tach... lol
Chris Johns: @ TheVx490 huh?? two strokes are banned where you are??
ml bakewell: what a shame 2 strokes are now banned.love the smell too
Johans60: Very nice engine, I used to have a 1150
mfuji02: xD "TALL STINKEN NIGGERS"! lmfao -_-
swarne8: what rpm do you run WOT?
Chris Johns: @jason35177 probably because theyre only a 1.6 litre motor (100 cubic inch)
whilst current ones are much bigger
9878tubeyou: @johnbambammorgan You put a wig on and turned on a camera and put his peter
in your mouth and told everyone he was queer didn't you?
