I am buying a new outboard, 4 stroke, to replace my older 2 stroke motor. They weigh about the same, within 5 pounds or so, but in looking through catalogs and such, many outboards are listed as being for two strokes or four strokes.
My current mount is older and while I don't know the brand or model it certainly resembles the design of current two stroke mounts,
But what is the difference between two and four stroke outboards that would suggest a different mount? Is there an inherent difference in the way they shake, or torque?
What's marketed as four stroke mounts certainly look to be more beefed up mounts.
