They are good motors. Only bad is you can't rev them up without taking off the cover because shift is in throttle handle. It can make them hard to keep running when warming up but if tuned properly are great motors. I would not even consider a evinrude/Johnson in that model year,they had no quality control when they were going bankrupt.
There are still things worth dying for and 1 of those things is freedom.

I had 94 merc 25 HP tiller. Great motor. Only had a powerpack go out. $135 bucks and ten minutes of work it was good to go. Don't know if the motor changed much from 94-99.

I have an 87 25hp merc and love it. Im not sure how much, if anything was changed during the years.
