I have bought a long block & parts for customers from Doug Russell for 4 years now. I have never had to return an item.
He's been extremely careful to verify Mercruiser part #'s to get the right part or engine to me. He's remarkably knowledgeable about GM & Mercruiser engines in my opinion - & I've been in the boat business for 50 yrs now. The long block (7.4 liter) was like new with excellent compression. It's been running perfectly for 4 yrs now.
Doug has personally helped me even with advice I needed, always returned my calls, always tried to find a part for me or help find a solution. He has literally never let me down, His prices are not the cheapest but they are very competitive & I believe you get what you pay for - Doug has gone out of his way to answer questions & has been patient & polite at all times. In May 2022 he sold me a VERY hard to find used part for less than half the price Mercruiser was asking for a new one - a savings of over $600 on one item. He could have charged anything but he gave me a very good price instead.
I highly recommend Doug Russell Marine - treat him as you'd like to be treated. He's a very busy man but will do whatever it takes to get you the right part or engine.
User's recommendation: Have your correct part numbers ready. Do as much research as you can before you call. Doug will be very straightforward with you and help you any way he can.
Doug Russell Marine Pros: Fast shipping.
