Could be, I'd read it as he wasn't reaching full RPM, either way it's not well

Could be. I read it as he'd revved the shaft off it and bollocksed it.

I was in a similiar position as you last year with my DT55. Sold it as spares or repairs and bought a Mariner 75. I would not throw good money after bad. For 1500 you will get something way better than the DT65. Its always a roll of the dice buying used outboards but you could spend a grand on the DT and something else will likely go. Only worth working on if you can source a cheap donner engine (mt old 55 would have been perfect!) gaskets are prohibitively expensive on these engines.

thanks

thank you guys, i took the dt65 in Kent in the end. i am already driving to pick it up.
i hope i am going to be lucky and the tilt unit is the same - this would then be the easiest de-/re-connect i suppose.

do you have any advise on how to interchange two DT65s with the smallest hassle? where to disconnect?

Too late now but I took the alternative theory whren my Merc died - I reckoned a total rebuild and I have an engine of known history.

Probably easiest to just unbolt the whole thing from the transom - that also means you can check the bolt holes for water ingress & re-seal them.

Might also be worth checking with the SR4 crew what sort of pitch prop they use - I would guess somewhere between 12-14" for a 65Hp on an SR5.4.
