I am looking to get feedback that anyone can provide regarding reliability of the above subject motors. I recently repowered a Coastal 290 with twin 250ís and at 20min the Port counter rotating motor ceased. We will start evaluating the situation tomorrow to determine what went wrong. I am hopeful that this was an isolated issue and not common. Any feedback on reliability is appreciated

Follow up:  Lower unit had locked up. Mercury is shipping replacement.  They do not want us to open lower unit since they want it for evaluation. Hopefully isolated event.
