No offense but it does, A guy I work with sold a Holley Pro-Jection set up ,that didn't work, said in the ad JUNK and the bid started at $50 and it sold for over $200. The unit was at least 10 years old and once again....it didn't work!

I sold something and blatantly said it dosent work.

I got negative feedback on the item.

Want to know why?

The damn thing worked.

It worked, and he paid the price for it not working, and was upset.

Used upper and lower Bravo I drive in good condition ready to go. Needs paint only.left over from re-power,on my Sonic 31ss,1.5 to1!They look bad in the photo but really just need some paint and the are not corroded out. Contact seller for additional information or photos.

Guys - a question

I have a Bravo that is a 9.999 on a 1-10 scale I had my buys redo about a month ago. It had approx. 100 hrs on it and a seal went and allowed water into the oil and we all know what happened next.

We rebuilt it (Premier/master tech certified Mercury shop) by my tech that just does drives, primed it, painted it, ordered new decals, etc. and will offer a complete warranty with it. It came off a 42 lightning Fountain.

List on the unit from Mercury is over $8,000 and that's what I charge when my shop does the work (we don't do alot of parts only sales). I put it on ebay for 3500 and didn't get an offer. WTF?

How much is everyone paying for these and what would a fair OSO price be?

Thanks for your help.

I bought 2 Bravo1 drives in really good condition from "the man", Too Old for $3,600 earlier this year. That was a smoking deal. I don't think your price ($3,500) is bad. Did you say you normally charge $8K to refurbish a Bravo 1? If so, that would be very high priced.
