    "The Tohatsu is clean, has a stainless prop with wiring harness and controls for $1000.00. All compression numbers are 144, 145, 144. Sounds like a steal to me."

    "I agree. I am in NJ, the motor is on Long Island, NY and the seller will run it for me. Right now the 70hp on the Whaler is old ugly and tired. It is a rare 1974 70hp Hustler. I can sell it for a few hundred dollars and the Tohatsu costs me $700.00"

    Default Does the '96 have oil inje

    Does the '96 have oil injection and carbs or FI? Do you recommend diabiling the oil injection for reliability? I love Nissan products have driven 2 Nissans and 1 infinity in the last 13 years.

    Default well it should have oil inject

    well it should have oil injection of course it could be a rare one that didnt i dk if the 90 came in the plain jane model i have a 50d2 thats pre mix its a carb motor for sure the oil injection pumps on nissans never fail there driven by metel gears and are very relalble but if you dump the oil filter and dont get the air out of it youll be rebuilding the motor as long as you test it yearly on pre mix to check the pump is working your fine oil level drops in the tank umm if your used to mixing your gas and oil on your 70hp then take the oil pump off and buy the cover they sell or just remove the shaft and reassemble idont like oil injection motors personally i like takeing no chances with oil you cant run the tank bone dry if you use oil injection as they mix before the carbs and when you reprime your priming with strait gas instead of mixed its up to you i perfer pre mix becuase im CERTAIN i have oil but you might not like or forget to mix your gas but if you have done it for years why change anything
