Dear customers! There are a few questions that are buyers asked the most often. This is answers to them:
The company «AZIMUT.DV» considers it his duty to call your attention to the fact that we are not manufacturers of MERCURY motors, we find the second-hand motors MERCURY and resell them. That’s why we can't provide the full warranty. We provide free service from us for the MERCURY used engines within 1 month. Before the motor MERCURY will be put on sale (on web site) we do with him the following actions are performed:
- Identifies motors MERCURY with a good compression and the good condition of the shaft and the bearings (This is the main condition). Engines MERCURY which do not fall into this list go into the spare parts area for take a part on aggregates and units (See for engines MERCURY for spare parts).
- Next is the replacement of the necessary equipment, Low gear, CDI, etc. which is taken from “engines MERCURY for spare parts” and after that the motor MERCURY tested at the stand.
- Then the engine when necessary clarification.
- Before the release the engine on sale we test him again and engine qualify with the following requirements: - Compression is the working - Cooling in the normal - There is no Noise, negatively affecting on the engine run
Please pay your attention on some features of outboard motors MERCURY make operating:
to fix it with bolt to the transom very carefully. When instal motors 2-30 h.p. we suggest to use a steel safety cable which should connect the motor and the transom of the boat to avoid the accidental loss of the motor.
The two-stroke engines MERCURY is used either joint or separate lubrication system. In a joint lubrication system of gasoline mixed with oil directly in the fuel tank in the ratio of 1:50. When refuel of petrol in the tank you need to add the right volume of oil and mix thoroughly. Recommend you to use unleaded gasoline with an octane number not less than 92 anl oil with mark TC-W3. In separate lubrication system should pour oil in oil tank, located under the cover of the engine MERCURY. Powerful models outboard MERCURY engines (more than 100 h.p.) as a rule, are equipped with additional external oil tunk high-capacity, from this tunk oil as far as spending is pumped to the main oil tank under the cover. For two-stroke models with separate lubrication system recommend the use of 2-stroke oil TC-W3 Premium.
When operating the four-stroke outboard motor MERCURY used oil for four-stroke engines 10W-30 oil or other markings, depending on the climatic conditions of the region. Replacement of the oil should to be done at least once in the season when use not to much, and not less than two times in a season in the case of intensive exploitation. Remember that outboard engines MERCURY is operated in a much more intensive regime and a more aggressive environment (salt or fresh water) than the engine of the car, so watch carefully for the level and condition of the oil and timely perform its replacement.
Boat motors MERCURY cooled by seawater that is constantly circulating through the cooling system of the motor, so never start the engine without water in the cooling system. Work of the engine MERCURY without cooling lead to the destruction of the impeller in the pump, and in the worst case to overheating and of the engine. When the engine MERCURY is running watch carefully to the stream of cooling. If the jet cooling is missing, immediately stop the engine, and try to clean the outlet of jet (often blocked by salt or deposits in rare using) and also check the water intake grille (located at the low part of gear unit near the prop). If this does not help, address to specialists.
Propeller is a crucial element of an outboard engine MERCURY. The main mark of the dimension of the propeller is a pitch (measured in inches), which is usually marked on the hub or blades of the propeller, with the first digit denotes the diameter, and the second - the propeller pitch. For example, the inscription on a screw 13 ? X17 means that the screw has a 13 ? inches in diameter and 17 of the pitch. Than more propeller’s pitch (distance traveled screw for one full rotation), so it is more of a high-speed, and Vice versa, than less step - the screw is considered more for cargo. If propeller is distorted, damaged or cranked this fact is reduces the efficiency of the engine or makes it impossible for further exploitation. Engine's performance is directly dependent on the choice of the screw. The wrong choice or operating with damaged propeller MERCURY can lead to a reduction in power, high fuel consumption or failure of the engine. For the proper selection of propeller to each specific set of «hull - motor» should take into account the following main points: When propeller is properly chosen motor MERCURY should develop the maximum on tachometer, but do not exceed it. If the engine does not gain the maximum momentum, the screw is a «heavy» - in this case, the propeller pitch should be reduced from the calculation of about 250 rpm for 1-inch pitch, and Vice versa, increase, if the engine exceeds the maximum permissible revs. For a correct and accurate selection of the optimum prop always use the tachometer and, preferably, the instrument with which we can measure the speed of the GPS, or speedometer/Las).
Always keep on Board at least two props - one primary and one standby, in case of failure of the main. The second screw is desirable to have a shorter step, to use it for cargo in cases of increased load of the boat. After starting give warm up the engine at idling speed for several minutes. When your boat reached a glisser mode - a little relieve gas. This will save you fuel and will allow to overcome the greater distance. Never exceed the allowable engine’s royation (as a rule, the motors are designed for the maximum range of 4500 to 5500 rpm.), as it can significantly reduce the engine’s life and will cause damage to the motor.
After the use of motor MERCURY in sea water we recommend that you regularly wash the cooling system with fresh water. If you drowned motor MERCURY, as soon as you can take it to professionals - because without the taking of urgent measures for the resuscitation of the engine chances for further trouble-free operation are low.
Our specialists are always competently advise you on all aspects of operating the water-motor technology and will help to solve technical problems.
Thank you for your purchase and we wish You a pleasant rest on the water.
