1992 502 w 390hp, 300 hours - sold a month ago. I have heard that the 502 needs a rebuild at 500hrs.

1996 502 MPI, 474 hours. Still runs good but I am considering a rebuild this winter. I did have the heads rebuilt at 324 hours because I added new exhaust. When I got the boat 4 years ago it had 124 hours and I have been fairly kind to it, oil change and filters about 4 times a season, drive service twice a year and only ran it hard the first year.

Hey hey......hows the boat

What are you putting around at 30mph..... .seemed like I burned a quart of oil every 10 hours.

Do you remember my boathouse at the test drive - the parking lot is under water and has been for 4 weeks

My '99 502 MPI is smoking a bit out of the left exhaust, and it is using a bit of oil. I think that a rebuild may be in my future. Any thoughts on the cost?
