Are Yam and Merc props...

Are Yam and Merc props...interchangable with one another. My Yam has a standard 15 tooth spline?

Do I need a modified thrust washer as well?

AFAIK they are not directly interchangeable but I think you can get an adaptor to fit. Not sure about the thrust washer though!

Edit: I think it may depend on which way the interchange goes. I think you can get an adaptor to make a Merc prop fit a Yam but not sure about the other way round. I think Pete7 may know more!

Thanks Louise.

Tim, how many splines have you on your Tohatsu? And what the id of the bore and od of the shaft because I could tell you if it's the same as a Yam.
