Mercruiser 120hp oil pan required.

Postby broompisces » Thu May 23, 2019 7:24 pm

I'm trying to source an oil pan / sump for a 120hp Mercruiser (circa 1968 vintage). Can anyone steer me to where one may be lurking? Many thanks.

Welcome to the world of old Mercruisers. They seem to rot away faster than you can restore them. Faiford lake revealed a rotten exhaust riser and trim ram. I had already replaced the head.block. timing cover.
oil pan and manifold.- all corroded beyond repair.

I've been in that world for over 10 years... I've just replaced the sterndrive, ran it up to temperature prior to launch and noticed the oil in the bilges.
