  • 1999 200 hp Yamaha Saltwater Series II

    I have come across a 1999 200hp SW2. Motor appears to be in really good shape, but the hrs are not known. Cranks and runs in the shop fine. I plan on doing a compression check, going over the T&T system thoroughly, and checking the lube in the lower unit. Are there any other obvious points I should check? What is this engine worth? Comes with SS prop and side controls. I would need the 704 binacle control though.

    (Update: Compression was 120 on 4 cylinders and 115 on 2 cylinders) Does this sound correct to you experts on this engine?

    compression sounds good. I had one of those motors, I wish I had never sold it. that is one of the best built motors you can get in my opinion. If it has been taken care of.

    You will need a DVA adapter http://www.usatoolwarehouse.com/usat...e/ESI-640.html First test compression, Second test spark with a spark gap tester set a 7/16 gap, Third check timing, next CLEAN your carbs properly,

      It's probably fine, But your purchase should be based contingent on running motor on the river for a "sea trial". I understand that may be hard to do since it's not mounted on your boat yet, but a motor can run fine "at the shop", but have issues out on the water under load, at higher RPM's. Otherwise you'll be buying a "pig in a poke", so to speak. Hope it turns out great for you and good luck!

        o yea with SS prop and side controls, I would give $2500-3000 for that motor if I wanted it and it was in very good condition..
