Mercury 8hp I believe this is a 1996/7 engine. It is a twin cylinder 2 stroke.
Starts easily and pumps plenty of coolant. It is set up for remote controls. It is in good condition for its age (see images) there are just the normal age related marks.
The engine is a shortshaft, to suit a 15 transom. It is manual start, with a 12v charge circuit to keep your battery topped up. Includes remote control box, with 9ft cables, a fuel tank (assumed this is free as there is no fuel line included, I used a plastic tank) and the steering drag link arm, not pictured. Please ask if you are highlands or islands, this will be more.The item "Mercury 8hp Outboard Boat Engine Shortshaft Remote Control Rib Tender Fishing" is in sale since Sunday, December 9, 2018.
