    "I just got a '95 125. From what I have read from these gentlemen, it's a called a 2 + 2. At idle it runs on the top to cylinders then at around 1800 RPM it kicks in the lower two. Besides that I don't know much more. I'm just now getting mine to where itís running like new again. Good luck and this forum has so much information about your motor. Just search "115" in the Mercury discussion and you will have your hands full."

    Default "The 115 was very popular and

    "The 115 was very popular and a decent engine with no real chronic issues. It stayed in production until 2005 and is still well supported by Merc (parts/service).

    If the compression is good, it runs decently and is in fair cosmetic shape I would expect that vintage to sell for between 1500 (salt run motor) and maybe 2500 (top end if in excellent shape).

    Personally, I would have no issue hangin' a 95, 115 off the back of my boat."

    Hopefully, not the boat you did those small motors tests on!

    Default "Bandit certainly knows these

    "Bandit certainly knows these motors...the problems he pointed out are common but with proper maintenance, it is a great motor. There is a slight bit of hesitation at 1800RPM when the motor goes from 2 to 4 cylinders(especially on decelleration... 4 to 2) but if adjusted correctly, it isn't too much of an annoyance. Change those oil lines immediately...mine were brittle and ready to crumble. Have it checked out by a Merc mechanic before purchase...money well spent!"

    Default "Hi! Had the 1997 2+2

    "Hi!


    Had the 1997 2+2. Ran great, similar issues with volt regulator and alarms. Seemed that the alarm unit was faulty...

    Good idea to run a 100:1 mix in the tank for peace of mind...

    Ignition switches also known to give hassles.


    Otherwise good motors judging by the amount seen on the ponds around here.


    Enjoy!"
