 Getting ready to purchase a boat powered by the Merc 40 hp 4 stroke. What is the reputation of these motors- are they pretty reliable as long as you keep up with the maintenance on them and don't dog them? Thanks for any info you can give

   I have one from fatzso #19093  6/25/2012 10:39:20 AM
 on my Tracker. It's a 2000 model 40 Big Foot 4 stroke. I have no problems with it once I had the carbs cleaned. I use no oil and it runs great. I would like more speed (26 mph) now with all my stuff in it but to me it's a great running motor.

 Thanks for the reply. I figure the first few times I take it out I will miss the old 150 Johnson I had on my previous boat. I guess the older you get the less "need for speed" syndrome and you go back to where you first started.
