Would y'all be scared of a motor that was rebuilt when buying a used boat? Even if the compression checks out?

Nope as long as the rebuilder was reputable and they fixed what caused it to blow in the first place.

Personally when rebuilding an engine. I want the injectors cleaned. The fuel pump tested and oil pump replaced/ or checked out. I prefer a short block. Versus boring. You can build em tight and tighter than new, but it's not cheap. A lot of people cheap out, or their shop is not performing all of the tasks paid for. A good compression test will show a lot. Also the quality of work done. Bolts should be clean and not roughed up. High quality tools leave fewer marks. Quality tools shows a tech that has been around and values precision. He usually does not want a motor coming back.

If the Evinrude is a carbed engine it should be fine. Id stay away from a FICHT engine though. It may be a great engine, but the stigma that they have kills any value of it.

XRI should be a Mercury. You got a pic of it?

I wouldn't be worried if everything checked out. I have a GT-200 1989 rebuilt in 2009 and it's still running great. I now mix my oil & gas but that's just a comfort factor. bannana2 good luck on your decision

Those are pretty solid engines. Xri means it is fuel injected, easy starting off the trailer.
