you will be ok with bruce i know lots of people that use him and never heard a bad thing once. he recently rebuilt my 94 evinrude 3.0 liter replaced everything but the fuel line that comes from the tank and thats the only problem i have had just sucking air at the tank and linkage problems at my hot foot. ran the boat the other day and it ran 72 mph @ 5800 rpms.
Ken from Holiday Mobile Marine does great work and several folks from this site use him including me. His #s are Office 480-649-3234 , cell 602-510-3552. It is usually easier to reach him on his cell as he is usually out fixing someones boat. The last flyer I got for a tune up was $130.00 to $160.00 depending on the motor.
Ditto on Ned02's reply. I have used Ken several times and and was quite pleased with his work and his prices. Also, it is nice having him come to your place instead of having to hook up, tow in and back. Rich
You could also give DelW a call to see if he is still doing boat repair(I think so). Everyone says he does good work(sorry Del, had to use that nasty word). Just make sure to keep your Rod Lockers and tackle storage locked. :lol:
