FOR SALE: 225-HP Evinrude V6

My 1992 Evinrude 225-HP V6 outboard, model E225TXENR is for sale.
This motor has about 450-hours of running time, almost 100-percent in freshwater. It has only spent a few days running in saltwater, and then carefully washed down afterwards.
In the past four years the following components have been replaced with new factory OEM parts (approximate part cost shown in parenthesis):
--rectifier-regulator assembly ($275)
--ignition Power Pack assembly ($300)
--fuel line vacuum switch sensor ($85)
--new water pump impeller and pump housing seals ($75)
The six carburetors have been adjusted and a sync-and-link procedure performed by a OMC Master Mechanic within the last two years.
The engine starts easily and runs well. There is an electronic warm-up circuit which aids in engine idle during warm up.
The motor has also been updated for use with the OMC System Check upgrade. This OEM field upgrade kit makes the motor compatible with boat wiring configurations typical for newer Evinrude motors which use the System Check gauge or System Check tachometer.
The cowling Ocean Pearl (off-white) paint and OEM decals are in near perfect condition, marred only by a small abrasion in an inconspicuous location. The mid section paint is OEM and in perfect condition. The gear case has been recently repainted. The skeg is intact and in original condition with no welds or fillets. There has never been any propeller strike or damage to the propeller, propeller shaft, or gears.
The power trim and tilt pump is free of corrosion and works perfectly. The engine has a built-in trailer support bracket.
The engine is currently not installed on my boat. It is stored indoors in a heated building and is mounted on a stand. It is available for inspection any day Monday through Saturday during normal business hours. The engine can be shipped using an OEM shipping pallet and carton if needed for a modest additional charge. If desired, installation on the transom of your boat can be arranged at very convenient terms.
Please contact me via email for any further details or inquiries, or to arrange an inspection.

Hooray! Jim gets a hot new E-TEC and the buyer of this motor gets a low-hour cream puff at a good price.

I heard he was getting a Verado to test next....

Jim, I'm interested. Sent you an email and hope to hear from you soon.

I forgot to mention that the motor's compression was recently checked. All cylinders were within plus or minus 5-PSI and in the usual range for this model at 85 to 90-PSI.
A propeller is also available.
To fit this motor on a boat you will need some additional rigging, which is not included in the motor. For example, you will also need:
--remote controls with trim and tilt switches, alarm sounder, and wiring harness;
--mechanical cables to connect remote controls to engine;
--ignition switch with wiring harness, incorporating a safety switch and lanyard;
--electrical harness to connect engine to helm;
--remote oil tank with oil pick-up, float sensor, wiring harness, primer bulb, and oil hose;
--a System Check gauge or a System Check tachometer
All of this rigging is typically already installed in a boat which has been rigged for an Evinrude or Johnson motor of c.1994 or newer. If rigging the motor on a boat previously fitted with an older OMC motor, a new extension cable may be required to make use of the System Check feature. If rigging the motor on a boat fitted with another brand of motor, the electrical elements of the rigging will likely need to be replaced or very substantially modified to connect to the motor.

for those that dont know the model number- what size shaft is that motor?
where are you located?

Jim's Motor is a 25 inch shaft and is currently on display at Lockemans Hardware and boats in Detroit.
I have seen it a number of times on the water and it really is a near perfect unit. Runs and look great.

I know someone who needs a 20", thanks

RM - your buddy might consider mounting the longer shafted engine on a slidemaster jack plate (has enough lift, many others don't).
I have 25" engines in an installation that calls for 20" (only way to get CR engines in the model I have) and the slidemaster install works great.

Tomorrow marks the arrival of Spring. My beautiful motor is still for sale. I'd like to get this sold. My boat has a bare transom, and I need to get ready for boating season.

Have you thought of posting some photos? The post is 5 months old and photos of pristine motors tend to incentivize a buyer.

Photos are on the Lockeman's site.

I added a nice picture of the motor taken a year or so ago.

Here is my 1992 Evinrude 225-HP V6 running along at 40-MPH:
Notice how smoothy she runs!

This classic Evinrude is still available.

The weather is getting warmer up here in Michigan, so I would like to get this engine sold.
This 1992 motor has spent almost all of its life in Michigan and Ohio, and the great majority of that time was sitting on the transom of a boat on a trailer and stored indoors. It is a cream puff.
