I know my Merc. never had a title here in Tx. Once the engine was paid off, the lender sends proof it was pd in full and that's it.

just have them run the number and they will title if one was never issued. I did a 1957 motor a few years ago .

Only thing I know of is applying for an abandoned motor title. Look it up on TP&W web site.

Texas is money grabbing state where ever they can. Most of the people that work in title office will make you jump thru hoops. Don't like the answer you get go to next closest office and you will get another answer.

was it purchased by you from an owner in ca.?. a lot of time what happens is folks will title an register the boat an because they get the advice that when was the last time a game warden checked the serial number on your motor they don't pay the taxes an registration on the motor to get it legal. a lot of the stuff on craigs list is this way either no titles or the title is not in the sellers name which makes it a pain to get it titled.

I bought the boat and motor from an individual who got it from his aunt in cal. the boat had ca numbers on it and the owner just got the title to the hull in his name supposedly. I ran the numbers on the boat with the cal dept of motor vehicles and it was registerd under that number. and the title to the hull was clear.
