Thats what I thought when I did some research after I shredded a water impeller. Was discussing some maintenance with my shop and came to a little disagreement about whether or not it existed. Just wanted to confirm that I am right.

I'm not a Merc mechanic but I have looked at parts schematics to see if the 6.2 has an engine oil cooler and have not found one. Can't imagine what Mercury was thinking when they put a 4.5 quart oil pan on a marine engine without even a engine oil cooler.
If your shop insists that your 6.2 has an oil cooler ask them to point it out to you. They'll probably point at the power steering cooler. LOL.

They weren't insisting. We were just discussing it before they had even looked at it.

Ya no crap, tell me about it. I thought this was a minor leak two years ago when I took it in and the shop told me I was 2qts low, which I thought, "well it could be worse" then they told me it was only a 4.5qt system....

Are there any after market oil cooler solutions or bigger pan I could put on while I'm at it?

Fantastic idea, I never would've considered that.
