looking for mercury

Postby vwcrash » Wed Feb 25, 2015 12:16 pm

I am looking for a mercury 402 short shaft or similar for my zzip.
Not many older or medium hp motors for sale here in so fl. Now if I wanted a 225 hp I would have a hundred to choose from.
Thanks ,vwcrash

Not mine, just noticed the listing after reading your post. Bit of a basket case.

Long shafts work just fine on the Zip too.
