I have a 2003 Nissan 9.9 4stroke on my H-260. It has been a good motor for the most part. The shifting cable came disconnected from the shifter(engine side) but was caused by my attempt at forcing the engine to shift. It was easily repaired with a C-Clip. I also lost an impeller, again, easily repaired. My only complaint and the only problem not self-inflicted, is the idle wont stay put at lower RPMs. It either dies or raises. This has proven to be problematic in tight spots when it stalls. But it's been a really good engine other than that.
