My lower unit is shot. Case is good though. No lube but pressurizes and no one wants to take the blame. So I'm screwed. Who is the best at rebuilding a 06 Merc 40hp 4 stroke? Been thinking about sending it out to Kansas for rebuild price of $1000 - $1500. Would like to keep it local if there is any one in town that can do it. New the damn thing costs $3000. Only if I had a 250hp 2 stroke the price comes down quickly.
