tohatsuguru 6hp question or anyone else
Hey, this is my first post so if I'm in the wrong spot, lemme know.
I have some questions about Tohatsu motors and tohatsuguru really seems to know his stuff so if anyone can point him to this post I'll be really grateful.
I am curious about swapping the shaft length on a tohatsu 6hp motor from a 15in short shaft to the 25in xtra long shaft. Does anyone have experience with this? Is it an easy couple of hour job or is it a nightmare? Should I choose to switch back and forth more than a few times would this cause any undue wear on the motor or parts?
Also, I'll be using the xlong shaft with my venture 21, fully loaded it's under 2000lbs closer to 1700lbs actually. Should I get the elephant ears prop or do you think I'd be ok with the factory prop off of the short shaft?
Thank you all in advance for any help you can offer.
