searider 5.4

Hi everyone,
I have just bought a fully rebuilt ex military searider and have
purchased a mariner 90 optimax used.The question is it too heavy
at 170kg?

Thats an awfully heavy engine- I didn't realise the 90 optis were so weighty. It's actually heavier than the Honda 90 4 stroke!

That's almost 60 Kg heavier than the Yam. Watch out for water coming over your transom at rest.

Hi everyone,
Just to put the record straight,i was quoted the engine to be
an optimax but when i got there it was a standard mariner
90 2 stroke.
I still made the purchace,it has a barras meter 123 hours,
you can't go wrong for 1600 can you.
Cheers Adrian.

170kgs for a 90

The Tohatsu 90 TLDI is 143Kgs which still seams a lot considering my Suzuki DT200EFI only comes in at 211kgs.
