The FSM issues are really pretty old news.
The offending parts we're upgraded about 8 yrs ago,
 -float switch and fuel regulator hose-
All parts are available seperately and easily repairable,
 really no reason to replace an entire FSM assy, unless you want one for a spare.
The ethanol states found the problem very early on, unfortunately it took merc a couple of tries to get it right.

Can someone recommend a certified Verado service person in the Boston Area.  Coming up on 300 hour service and engines running great but want to be sure to get the Service done.

Regards to the list

Thank you for the feedback. Especially to Massbay, I appreciate the info.

So, $1,453 dollars and 1-FSM module later, (remove old, tear-down, test, install new, check, and run), we're back up and running. I had a secondary issue, which was a low battery, throwing phantom trouble codes because it was below 9-volts.

Two questions;

I read about "updated modules" from Mercury. Now, the new one came from Fond du Lac, WI, so it's genuine. I'm assuming there's NOT a more current revision, than FUEL SUPPLY MOD 8M0078553 (1)?

Two, and I'll preface this statement by saying I'm not the original owner of this motor, I'm just the one stupid enough to have inherited the problem because I thought it was too low hours to have any kind of issues, so I didn't thoroughly check it. How can I prevent this from happening in the future? Proper storage/lay-up techniques, etc? I already use Quicksilver Fuel (1) Treatment and Stabil Marine in the tank

Proper maintenance for sure, but I don't EVER want to have to replace this FSM again. I think it's ridiculous on a motor under 100-hrs of use, but I've read enough to know that's pretty common.

The I6 Verado block is being redesigned to be a full cast block without liners to reduce weight and increase HP. Im currently selling Mercury tooling to produce this newly evolved platform. The current V8ís will not be supercharged in the near future. Merc knows the I6 is bulletproof, and with the new induction system introduced for the 350/400 three years ago, growth and expansion of HP for the I6 will come soon. Stay tuned.

Anything new from Mercury above 400HP soon ... ?

I've got a 2014 Verado 300 connected to my Smartcraft and connected to my Lowrance HDS-10 by means of NEMA 2000, I want to get my Lenco trim tabs connected to display on the GPS and looking at getting the Mercmonitor. How do I go about doing this?  Do I need to get the Lenco Auto Guide Kit to do this or is there another way?

Thanks Len. So that's a "yes"? If I hire certified a tech with the proper Mercury computer he can run a verado with nothing more than a battery?

Try and get through this section in the manual. There is 100 hr check and a 300 check . The 100 check should be done every 100 hours,  the 300 should be done every 300 ....so the 300 check should be done at 300 /600/900/1200 etc. etc.
