2008 Mercury 60 FOURSTROKE Internal Anodes

Postby ollie366 » Fri May 22, 2020 6:12 pm

Does a c.2008 Mercury 60-HP EFI FOURSTROKE engine have internal anodes?

To determine if the Mercury 60 FOURSTROKE has the internal anodes, I have searched the parts diagrams and looked on line, but I did not find internal anodes mentioned. On outboard engines I own made by other manufacturers, there are internal anodes placed between the spark plugs.

ASIDE: the engine is on a 2008 150 SPORT, and this boat is terrific, stable, quick, roomy, and will take the chop and remain dry.

Ask this question to a Mercury engine service technician.

Since other Whaler owners have this engine I thought it would be worthwhile to post what I found. They do not have internal anodes so it's one less thing to worry about!
