Mercury 1997 40 hp.

2 posts in this topic

Any help appreciated. I have a 1997 Mercury 40hp tiller. I have never changed the prop and want to get one soon (took another chip out of it this past weekend). Anyway. I have the boat at the lake and did not look at the number on the prop. mad.gif... Would anyone know the pitch of the prop that motor would have stock or does that all depend on many variables?? I have the motor on a 1998 Alumacraft Dominator which weighs in around 1100 pounds I guess with everything in it. Any help would be appreciated. I do not know too much about this stuff I guess....

Thanks

It depends on too many variables. One could guess, but the best bet is to wait and get a replacement for what you have, presuming you're happy with the performance.

      I'd pull it off to error on the side of caution.  You can always put it back out there in the future.

      Just because an officer doesn't say have a nice day doesn't mean he's a dick.  Can you imagine all the idiots this guy has to deal with on a daily basis?  It's the same with police officers.  They also get a bad rap because they aren't super polite or "nice" to people.  They get disrespected and abused and lied to on 95% of their calls.  You probably wouldn't be the most cordial person either if you had to deal with the crap they have to.     Should they be cordial?  Yes.  Is that what they get paid to do?  No.  Don't let it bug you so much.

      What's the Ice thickness on Blue now?  I'm considering driving out tomorrow on Blue. Has anyone fished Crappies or Sunnies Mon, Tues or Weds this week?
