5 posts in this topic

I know this probably is not the place to post this but I need info now. Yesterday Me and the boys went out for the first time. and the lake was lower then I thought and i had the motor down because I do not have power tilt and trim. and the prop hit knocking a corner off of the prop.My problem Is with out taking the prop off how do i know what kind of stock mecery prop to look for and buy. I just bought boat used last fall.

Thanks

The motor should have a serial number on it. You might get lucky and find it on the mercury HSOforum. You can also do a search on "mercury outboard serial numbers". There are a couple of sites that have info. If all else fails, take the number to a Mercury parts dealer and they can tell you what year it is and what prop to use.

The prop may have a number on it as well indicating pitch, diameter, etc. I hope that helps

What I would do is take the prop off and bring it to a shop that will rebuild it. It will cost you about half the price. I took my prop in the spring and it cost me $65 instead of $140, I took mine to formula propeller in Brooklyn Park just south of 694 on county road 81. I have had mine out 3 times and it runs just like a new one.

Try a Comprop while you are have the old one rebuilt. It makes a great spare and the performance on my 90 Evinrude is very good. I'm sure they make one for your 60 Merc. Check Cabela's HSOforum for specs.

Good luck

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!
    • Hey team, last miute success for the team...... nice tom too!!! Heading on vacation today will submit it mid next week when I get back. 22.11lbs with 10 3/4 beard. 
    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
