I have a 1977 Mercury 850 85hp long shaft outboard for sale. I believe this to be a fairly low-hour motor. The motor runs excellent and has just been serviced including install of a brand new stator from CDI electronics.
Full service list:
Brand new stator
Carburetors cleaned and tuned
New fuel lines
New fuel pump kit installed
Coils, trigger, switchbox good
New water impeller
Fresh lower unit oil
150psi compression on all four cylinders as you might expect on a low-hour motor.
Motor starts easily and runs up to wide open throttle under load.
I don't think the lower unit is original to the motor and has some chips as can be seen. You can easily fix this with a stainless steel skeg protector that will make it look great too.
Good prop included.
No power trim
No controls...motor only. Controls available on eBay for around $100.
Wrap around cowl is very nice but not original to motor...it is from an earlier model year.
I can start and run motor for interested buyers.
This price is end of season pricing. No haggles...I'm firm.
Text or phone is best...NO EMAILS please!!!
