Hello!

I have a 1999 Evinrude 175 OceanPro that I am wanting to have totally rebuilt. It has overheating issues and some of the cylinders have low compression. At this point, I just want to get it completely rebuilt, Carbs, lower end, top end, everything. I just want to have a reliable motor. Does anyone have any recommendations for shops that do good work and use quality parts for rebuilds ? Asking specifically for the Central Texas area. I read on this forum about Texas Outboard Rebuilders in Tool TX, just didnt want to have to haul my motor up there and back.

Thanks!!

I have used TOR in Tool several times sent several of my customers to them. They have the best warranty I have seen with rebuilders and even pre break-in the motor before they release it. They are worth the drive. Call them and talk to them, they are good people.

I can tell you where NOT to go.

Capt. Mac in Austin. I wouldn't let him rebuild my weedeater.

Customer brought in a V6 Merc he spent good money on for a "complete" rebuild. It wasn't running right, brought it in.

TWO cylinders had no rings in them. Not missing one, there were NONE. Plus not one gasket, all orange pookie. What a snake.
