I have heard a few stories about Yanmars breaking, so I have started a new thread.

No, I didn't say that. After all, I don't have any experience of either engines. I did have a scumsucker with AQAD 41's, and didn't have any problems with them.

What I meant was that the Yanmars seem to break.

Well, sorry for diversifying.

Im interested in seeing weather we can save some money and get to the bottom of this outboard engine Mine field and help him get a engine cheaper or the best he can get based on others experience.

The debate on Diesl should be on the other thread.

Back to the matter in hand...

IMHO the only outboards (i know very little about diesels) worth having are Yamaha or Mercury (Mariner). This stands for old, new, 2 or 4 stroke. The only alternative 4-stroke i would consider is a honda.

Reasons...

...experience, i've had most makes over the last 6-7 years, from a reliable 1972 Merc to a useless late 90's envirude. Sizes have varied from 3.3hp (my current wing engine) to 200 (a crappie suzuki).

I stand by to be shouted at - but that's my opinion.

Daniel

Daniel,

Your Crappie Suzukie was it a new engine and was it 200hp four stroke or two.

I thought some one would ask when i wrote that, it was just an example - i must have experience of, say 30 engines, being involved in scouts, sailing club, and on about my 5th boat myself.

The suzuki 200 was a v6 2-stroke with twin spark heads, went like stink - when it went. circa '92 i think.

If anyone thinks it would be constructive i could recall most of the engines i think, along with a breif history???

Daniel
