Classic Mercury Hotline

What is the Classic Mercury Hotline?

Do you need assistance or advice on that classic Mercury outboard or MerCruiser? We can help out by providing technical assistance from our experts in antique Mercury products.

(Call assistance is $20 per inquiry, payable by Visa or MasterCard only).

It's that easy!


What we can do for you?

We can provide information we believe you need to repair your engine based upon the information you provide us. We cannot guarantee you are able to repair your own engine. That will depend in part of the complexity of the mechanical issue, your experience as a mechanic, your tools and the problem with the engine. The accuracy of the information will assist in the final outcome.

What are the potential hazards?

All cautions in manuals and procedures for working on machinery with moving parts must be followed with special attention to propellers and flywheels. When working with combustible fluids, safety procedures must be followed closely. No sparks, open flames or ignition sources are permitted in the workspace area. Engine ignitions produce high voltage levels, and cautions should be taken. No electrical connections should be broken while testing or running the engine. The most important safety tool in your shop is you.

What tools and equipment are required?

Proper tools are required for most repair procedures. These can be purchased at local marine/hardware/machine shops or you can purchase some tools at
