Am seriously close to replacing my '85 Mariner 90 w/ a 2000 lightly used 90 Merc. Does anyone have a good guess how much the '85 motor will bring on a private sale?
Thanks.

Hard to tell without seeing it but if compression is even across all 6cyls, trim works etc(I assume you are keeping guages and controls), she should fetch about $1000-1500 down here. Believe it or not, E-Bay fetches some pretty good prices on used outboards.

Thanks for the info, Bigshot.
Sorry about the multiple strings........
Guess I got carried away.
I do in fact have the motor listed on ebay as of yesterday. I have the reserve set low at $450 and after 1 day it's there. Have almost 6 days left. Hope you're right about the value.

Well, I guess I'll see what it's worth on ebay, anyway.
It's listed til Sunday night 3/16.
item # 2406816491.
Currently $686. (hopefully not a 12 year old bidder!)
