Re: Nissan / Tohatsu 6h 4 stroke

A 2-cylinder 2-smoke OMC 9.9/15 is a completely different animal from a 1-cylinder 4-stroke Tohatsu. On the Tohatsu, one swaps carbs for different CFM delivery... on some OMC models, the CFM is...

Re: Nissan / Tohatsu 6h 4 stroke

You have a displacement hull. Your boat is at hull speed. Even a 300 hp OB would not exceed that speed unless you started to dig the stern in and attempt to plane/surf. It's a function of waterline...

Re: Nissan / Tohatsu 6h 4 stroke

Absolutely not. If you are near sea level, the correct jets are already in the appropriate carb. If you re-jet richer, you will accomplish nothing but fouled plugs. Period. If you need to convert...

Re: Nissan / Tohatsu 6h 4 stroke

No. The alternator is only standard on the UL SailPro.

Yes, the MFS4,5,6 are the same block.

No. They are 3 different carbs; one each for the 4, 5, and 6. The throats are different sizes. If...

Re: Outboard Starting Procedure

Indeed. Another case (as the IT folks say) of RTFM. :)

Re: Outboard Starting Procedure

Incorrect. The crankcase will not be anywhere near dry when the motor stalls, just too lean to run. In decades of outboard service, I have never seen a lack of lubrication from running until stall....

Re: Standard Horizon Matrix AIS+ GX2150

Yep. And no independent AIS antenna needed. And no extras needed, aside from a GPS connection. Works, works well, and is cheap and reliable. On the Great Lakes, we are mostly concerned about...

Re: Standard Horizon Matrix AIS+ GX2150

The SH is a great unit. If you are looking for AIS targets, and not complex radar solutions, it is definitely the way to go. Excellent bang for the buck. I have one, and my customers who have them...

Re: High Thrust Prop for Tohatsu 9.9 on Nonsuch 22

Indeed. The 3-blade unit for the 4/5/6 is very good. Just not as sophisticated as the 4-blade units for the 8/9,8 and 9.9/15/18

Re: High Thrust Prop for Tohatsu 9.9 on Nonsuch 22

Incorrect. Look at one of the HT props. HUGE blades, negative rake... Moves a LOT of water at slow speeds. Dee http://www.rubexprops.com/prop-info/2010/solas-high-thrust-propeller/

Re: High Thrust Prop for Tohatsu 9.9 on Nonsuch 22

Completely different animal. the 4-blade prop for the 8.8 absolutely shovels water at slow speeds. Still the 7 pitch would be the best choice for that boat.

Re: High Thrust Prop for Tohatsu 9.9 on Nonsuch 22

Nope. Probably allow the motor to go right up to 6000 rpm though. The prop has 4 EE (elephant ear) blades. However, the 7 would be a better choice, and is the prop the factory recommends for that...

Simple,

You are 100% 0n the right track!

The special 4-blade HT props for both the 8/9.8 and the 9.9/15 are fantastic for sail applications. They have 2 major characteristics that make them...

Re: Frozen rudder shaft Hinterhoeller 28

Rick... There's nothing wrong with your old tube, aside from the damage done by extracting the old seal. Yes, it was wise to extract the tube and inspect the connection/seal at the hull. I would...

Re: Hinterhoeller HR28 - 1967

The OB is fine. A4 possibly more powerful, albeit heavier. But I would not change from one to the other. Way too involved.

Re: Frozen rudder shaft Hinterhoeller 28

The PSS unit in question has a side tube for cooling water, and is intended for a prop shaft. Different animal.

Re: Frozen rudder shaft Hinterhoeller 28

Spreader boots are de rigeur for many. They only last a few years before the UV splits them. Likewise, a whole roll of 3M tape is not unusual. Personally, I have shroud rollers, so do not need boots...

Re: Frozen rudder shaft Hinterhoeller 28

OK, so your shaft diameter is a Nominal 1-15/16, based on those calipers. Personally, I prefer real micrometers for measuring shafting. Still, not a big deal. the important thing is to get the...

Re: Frozen rudder shaft Hinterhoeller 28

A competent mechanic can extract the bushing... or just glass in a new tube... either way, you are on your way to completion of the odyssey.

Re: Frozen rudder shaft Hinterhoeller 28

Yes, definitely cut 90% or so through, and then use a cold chisel powered by a small hand sledge to pop the rest off. Very low risk of nicking the shaft. A nice tool is the RotoZip, equipped with the...

Re: Frozen rudder shaft Hinterhoeller 28

Rick,

The square key (it is not a woodruff) at the top of the bronze shaft was for the original rudder head. That was bolted to the original tiller head. Immediately below that was a 1/4" ss pin...
