Hi!

Think of the macerator as a garbage disposal....it grinds stuff up. Fish scales, guts, ice etc.
Those Mercs are nice, wouldn't worry about disconnecting the oilers until they fail.

From the sound of things you got a pretty good deal. Keep us posted about the deck.

The old vro units have a bad rap. The newer models 1997+ are very reliable and frankly are better for your motor than pre-mixing where you will need to mix 50:1. When they go bad they tend to over oil not the opposite. Get the motors checked out, do the baseline maintaince suggested here and go enjoy.

I wouldn't loose any sleep worrying about the oil injection system. It's hard to believe the amount of leftover mistrust and mistaken blame there is still around for oil injection systems. You still hear it today.. "my cousins outboard motor blew up. One of the pistons just melted, I told him not to trust that damn VRO!" Well guess what if a single piston blew it was NOT caused by a oil injection failure (all of them would be damaged). Just make sure all the alarms etc are working.. and then just run those m0tors like you stole em!

BTW:

Thank you very much for the input. I got a new USB charger for my Galaxy S7 Edge and it is not letting me get pics or images from my phone. I think that's the reason? My old one did. So I have been trying to upload pics. Sorry I am working on it.
