I'm having trouble finding a aluminum prop for my outboard, all I can find is plastic. This outboard hasn't run in 12+ years. I hated having to refill the little gas tank all the time and mixing gas and oil. The last time I ran it, it was surging and I barely made it back to the dock. I bought a 5hp 4-stroke Nissan and stored the Merc. Everything was great until my wife hit, with her car, the rack I had the Nissan on and doing more damage then the old motor is worth.

I got the old Merc out and after watching several You Tube videos cleaned out the gunked up carb and cleaned out the fuel tank and line, cleaned and checked the gap on the spark plug and said a little prayer. To my surprise it started on the third pull.
