Re: Nissan 8hp outboard?- 10+ years old
I have a Nissan 8hp long shaft, elec start (two stroke). I had terrific results with it, but after 9 years, Problems. Last year, I found that salt water had eroded a big hole in the engine block. It was fixable with a big weld. And, very surprising to me, my mechanic had a hell of a time finding parts to replace the impeller. Once the hole was fixed and the impeller replaced, all is well, but my confidence was a little shaken.
