Has anyone ever changed a rectifier in a 40 hp 2 stroke mercury motor? The motor was built in 95. If so is it hard to do, expensive and where is the darn thing located? Thanks Gary

Hi Friend, After you remove the motor cover you will see a plastic cover held on by about 6 bolts, (I think there 5/16 heads). The plastic cover might read CAUTOION, HIGH VOLTAGE. Remove the plastic cover and you will see the rectifer located on the bottom right hand side. It is held on by two bolts. The color of the rectifier is clear. You can see inside the rectifer. They use some kind of clear plastic to cover the printed circuit board inside. The cost is about $135.00. I believe there are about four wires that plug and un-plug for simple removal. It's a very easy job. Good luck.

Dear grw66, I hope you are careful about listening to grw66's advice, unless you know him well......
