Its been a while, but if I'm not mistaken yes, but it is Sierra stuff or the chevy equievelent. For the Oil Filter if your in a jam you can go to any parts store and use a Fram HP4 for that purpose.

Go to Napa or find someone with a Napa Prolink account, it will cross mercury part numbers. Have used it to buy IAC's and other parts through NAPA.

Do not buy NAPA Brand distributor caps or rotors !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Preferably buy AcDelco or Merc parts. Most Napa's don't carry much AcDelco stuff anymore.

I have Prolink and it only lists the black motors...nothing blue.

If someone doesn't have Prodink they can give me a Merc or GM Part# and I'll see what it crossreferences into Napa# for you.

Their Gold or Silverline brands ?

BTW: I dumped all else NAPA earlier this year for much better quality and much better pricing ! NAPA has really hit rock bottom.....and it really sucks as I have one across the street. Next nearest parts store is 12 miles away !

I bought IAC's for a Merc 700 SCI by crossing the Mercury part # on Prolink. Maybe it was just luck.

What he said. BTDT, got the mis-fired engine to prove it.

We used their gold lne. Had an issue wth the branch close to me, threw them out of my shop. During our end of the year review it was evident my shop had WAY less engine and fuel system issues. We converted all of our shops to OEM filters and havn't looked back..

I was saying the pull down menu for Mercruiser only lists the black motors.

The cross reference part of it is pretty good, but you need the # you need cross referenced.

Thanks for the info.

Lately, I ran into a few Bosch 02 sensors that where $80 more than at Federated.

Last week, I priced an Expedition 5.4L Dorman intake manifold. NAPA was at $270 and federated at $190.

I can go on and on about SLAPA. I call them this because when i deal with them I feel like I should beatch slap myself.

Ok....one last one for now......their brake pads suck !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Better get out your grinding wheel to make them fit unless paying for their overpriced ADO's.
