I have twin 175...

I have twin 175 hp mercurys I was told there 1989s the serial #'s are ob304322 and ob304329 can't find those #'s on any list

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.

Have to replace the stator on 1 engine

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?

Don't think so
