    Default "Purchased a Tahotsu 9.9 2 str

    "Purchased a Tahotsu 9.9 2 stroke the other day to put on a 14' Alumcrat Jon. The motor appears to be in good shape (runs very good) I emailed Tahotus/Nissan with the serial number and they advised the year model is probably early 1990's.

    This is my first Tahotsu. Does this motor have a good history ?

    It has an alum. prop., a little rough around the edges. I contacted a local dealer regarding a SS prop for this motor. He adivsed that SS props for motors 18hp and under are no longer made . He said that "PowerTech Props" had also stopped production
    He stated that a SS prop is not recommeded because of the small gears. Better to damage the
    prop than the gears. Makes sense, we have a lot of logs, stumps etc. where we fish.

    Thanks in advance,

    GregD (newbie to this forum)"

    "Tohatsu Guru,

    Thanks ! I have heard that they are strong motors. We live on the water (bayou) and this boat and motor stays there.

    The only part I need is off the back of the cowling. The "grip thing" --- lol (handle), for raising & lowering the motor . I thought about using a piece of 1" alum. angle.

    ( "TOHATSU" --- I don't know why I keep spelling it with an "a". "Brain melt down" I guess)

    Thanks Again,

    GregD"

    Does this model Tohatsu use just a Tohatsu prop or maybe another brand like Mercury etc. ?

    You are saying the current Mercury 20/15hp Four stroke props will work on my early 1990's Tohatsu 9.9 ?"
