prop etc. gone!

6 posts in this topic

Let my kid use the boat today and they brought it back with no prop. I got a spare prop but i do not have the other pieces,there are a couple washers etc. gone. It is a 75 hp. mercury. Do these pieces come with a new prop? or can i buy just these pieces?

not sure how they lost it all but the sceg is all shined up on both sides. they say they never hit bottom but i know that aint true

I believe there is a thrust washer, a nut, and a cotter pin that you need.

Any boat dealer in the area should have these readily availiable for you. Lot's of people, myself included, have lost props and the associated hardware so this isn't an uncommon set of parts to carry on hand.

It goes-Thrust washer, prop, tab washer, lock nut.

I don't believe all the hardware comes with the prop. The prop service kit from merc is 11-31990A2 which has the thrust washer, tab washer, and lock nut.

I wouldn't know if I hit bottom unless I hit it about seven or eight times...just to be sure.

That's why I use paddles...LOL's

At least you only lost the prop. A freind put a new used 90hp outboard on his runabout over the winter. His 19 yr old daughter brought it out for the first time this past spring ... brought it back with out the lower unit - OUCH!
