I understand that the Johnson 4 strokes are Soozookis in different paint, but to show some effort, OMC (or whatever they're called these days) decided to use their own control boxes, so the prop should be identical.
Apparently, earlier two stroke OMC props fitted Soozis too, although the motors were entirely different.

You are correct, Johnson 4-strokes are rebadged Suzukis.
Bombardier own Evinrude and Johnson, as far as I can see they are aiming the ETEC 'rudes at the 2 stroke market (I dont believe you can buy a evinrude 4 stroke any more). Secondly, they are targeting the 4stroke market with rebadged Suzukis.

Grumpy;

Yamaha used to supply Merc with powerheads, I believe. Sort of fell apart a year or so ago when Merc accused Yamaha of dumping their powerheads on the US at a loss, while at the same time suing Yamaha for selling Merc their powerheads for too much.

Just got back from a long drive from a business trip away - and I picked up a Johnson stainless steel prop that was advertised on boats and outboards that was well cheap (presumably because not many johnsons in this country - the guy had bought it back from the states because he was told it would fit his omc sterndrive).

It was midnight - but I thought what the hell - and went out to see if it fits.

I know have some BLING !!! on my boat - cant wait to get it in the water - i hope the performance matches the looks.

Thanks guys for confirming they were same engine !!!

The new prop worked a treat - the boat sits perfectly on max revs now 6200 and at this rpm today we pulled 41.3 knots a new personal best for this boat...

even though the prop is statistically the same size as the ally one i replaced it with - either the lower drag profile of the stainless blades or lower cup or different rake or something has allowed the extra 100 or so rpm that I was missing. I'm pretty sure the hole shot has improved too.
