I talked to the marine deller and for $300 they would check it out.
I might offer $1000 and look at it as a project.
Probably will just pass and keep running the Merc.
Thanks for the replies.

That's a shame, yeah, fires are definitely not good. At least you still have your Merc.
Good luck on your eventual repower.
