Replacement engines

Postby Poco Loco » Fri Aug 04, 2017 3:18 pm

I need to replace my old 9.9's. What new engines will fit in the well without modifications? Anyone have recommendations on where to buy? (I'm located in Michigan)

Andy Jr. at Shipyard Island Marina (800-213-3323). Tell him it is for a PDQ 32 and he will adapt and fit it with a new wiring harness as a drop-in replacement.

The swap can be done either on the hard or floating.

The add in St Pete appears to be the tiller model. Keep in mind the cost of the remote connection kit.

They posted the wrong picture. Although they describe it as an XPB and XPA, there is no XPA version. The write up describes it as a remote model that requires control cables. Tiller models do not need that. I suppose someone would call if interested. I would. :idea:

In that case a good deal. Even better if you're local and can avoid shipping.

Glad it worked out!

And yes, it rocks! It's helped me out countless times. Even with my new boat (F-24), I have problems where I learned the solutions here (much of the same hardware).
