Re: Finally mounted

Got it all hooked up and running last night. I was planning on taking it to Alum Creek this weekend to see how it does, Typical Ohio weather will probably not let that happen.

Bimini top

Kind of a silly question. My original top is beige in color and I'm thinking of ordering black to match the fencing of the toon. Just wondering if the black makes the furniture hotter than a lighter color would? I know, silly question but my girlfriend and I were talking about it. Just looking for o...

Re: Finally mounted

I do, It's a different set up on the 9.9. I have to run and get the barrels that slip on the throttle and shifter cable. At least that's all I hope I have to get.

Finally mounted

Finally got the mercury 115 mounted, this thing was a hog to get on there compared to the 9.9, Just have to figure out the throttle cables now ,there seems to be a barrel missing or something. Totally different set up then the 9.9.

Old gas

I got all but about 2 and a 1/2 gallons out of my 25 gallon tank. The gas has been in there for 2 years, Will it be OK to fill the tank with new gas or should I get the last 2 gallons out. Having a heck of a time getting it out. Thanks in advance for any help.

Forward and reverse

Well I finally found a motor, picking it up in the morning. It's 2003 Mercury 115HP 4 stroke EFI engine 20” shaft. Stainless steel 14/14 prop and new impeller. I have a 2006 mercury 9.9 4 stroke, the dealer that is storing it for the owner was telling me that the wiring harness will fit but the cabl...

Re: Dumb question of the day

I guess this was really more of a rhetorical question with the sellers expectations. This is the third motor of I've called about that was already on a pellet and they couldn't understand why I wouldn't just buy it. I finally got 2 of them to agree to run them if I make the drive to look at them. Tr...

Dumb question of the day

Have any of you ever purchased and outboard motor without hearing it run. Sometimes you can get a read on people and see how they live and it gives you a pretty good opinion of how they take care of their stuff. This is a 2012 with approx 120hrs and he will take 5500... It's a merc 115, Would you ev...

Marine Parts Warehouse ?

I think I finally settled on a motor. Marine parts Warehouse has a rebuilt and new paint 01 merc 75hp 4 stroke, I think it should do what I need instead of 115, huge savings and 3 hrs closer. There is absolutely nothing around The Columbus, Ohio area. I've seen reviews on this place but anybody can ...

Re: Repowering

One of my other concerns was riding bow high with the weight of 115(apprx 360) plus the 9.9 kicker(apprx 80) lbs. The motors are from a marine that rents out about 30 boats and replaces motors every 2/3 years.
