Pulled the trigger!

Well i finally bit the bullet and pulled the trigger on a Mercury 9.9HP with the "command thrust" lower end and the big 4 blade high thrust prop!

Some of oyu i know will be happy to hear this

I figured for $2450, $200 mail in rebate, i can get the engine, and search for a diesel later on if i feel i need it.

Hopefully this will be enough to keep us happy and running for a while

PS - The real reason i bought new was due to the frustration I've had over the last 2 weeks with my 2 stroke 15hp merc. First i thought it was ignition coils, replaced those, nothing, thought it was fouled carb, pulled carb, rebuilt it, installed it, and during tuning it does not want to tune correctly. I can't get it to stay running for the life of me when warm.

Re: Pulled the trigger!

How's this motor? Is the command thrust the same a pro kicker. Hard to figure out on merc site. And tohatsu that makes the motor for merc does not sell a 9.9 with the oversized gearbox.

May need to replace a Yamaha T8 in near future.

Re: Pulled the trigger!

Why would you pull a trigger on an engine, surely it cant be that bad that you have to shoot it?

Part of the new greatness will be triggers on everything

Re: Pulled the trigger!

And biting the bullet while pulling a trigger, surely the bullet should have been in the gun not in your teeth?
