    New Gen-2 Torquemaster on 2008 250 proxs

    Picked my boat up from the dealer today and it has a new gen II torque master installed. The motor is a 2009 pro xs and the new lower unit was covered under warranty. I have read a few post that say the new lower unit cant be installed on the older motors. Is this installation correct? The dealer said this is the first gen II unit they have received and it bolted up fine. photo.jpg

    If it's covered under warranty, I say, run it like you stole it!!!

    Thats what i heard from Don also . The new Gen-2 cant be ran on the older motors . And if your set-up or boat does has 24 inches of set back its not the right lower unit for you and to run a Fleet master or V-rod lower with the new motor. The older proxs can TM and the fleet master .

    Better have your dealer check out SB 2013-01, and verify that your engine is an appropriate application (can only be determined accurately by VISUAL inspection of the trim system).

    What type of problems would it cause if its not the right application? Is there any way I can get a copy of the service bulletin.

    Nobody from Mercury can legally give you a copy of the bulletin.

    Service bulletins are internal communications for service techniques and proceedures... meant specifically for Mercury Dealers and/or Manufacturers.

    Your local dealer can reference the bulletin readily... and read the last paragraph/page for guidance in verifying your situation.

    It is critical that this inspection be done before any consideration of changing to a Gen-2 Gearcase.

    Trim system relief valve pressures are DIFFERENT on engines utilizing the Gen-2 Torquemaster (aka: Wingmaster).

    This is important, as this gearcase is substantially more rigid in nature (and the relief check valves must be correct).

    What happens if you go from a motor with the Gen 2 Torquemaster Wingmaster that was factory installed to the Servicemaster Verado lower unit does anything need to be changed or is it just bolt on and go?

    Such a change would need to be approved by Mercury- as this would (technically) be considered a modification to the product.

    Engine model number clearly indicates the gearcase it was manufactured with.
