Well I found me a M2 lower unit that has only five hours on it. It is ordered so hopefully I will be back on the water next week thank goodness. I also got me some insurance today. 😎😎

Your mech doesn't sound very motivated...

That's for sure. He use to be very good. He is a Mercury dealer so I don't know if that has anything to do with it. If it does he should have told me to begin with.  I am very shocked at the service I have gotten this trip. He had me thinking there were no lower units out there then I got on the Internet and found all kinds of them.

Glad to hear you found one! Where did you find it, and was it reasonably priced?

I found it on EBay for $3,000. I'm getting a new shaft and a new water pump while I'm at it. I hope that the M2 will be better that the Lightning that was on it. I want to thank everyone on here for all your comments and advise. I had a 08 Triton 186 for eight years and had to sell it for money issues. I never had one problem with the Mercury that was on it. I have had this boat for about a month and a half and have not been to the lake one time without having some kind of problem. Geeez. I hope this is the last of the problems with it for a long time.
