The 5hp Suzuki is the oldest.

Your service list is good but you also need to check/change the impellor. Its an easy job, check Youtube.
You would go for those because they are newer?

Ok, I'll had that to the service list!

Go for a Tohatsu 6 HP and bump it to a 9.8, just carb swap, or buy a new/used 9.8 and sticker detuned it to a 6 HP. Tohatsu 6-8-9.8 HP engines are same 170 CC, just detuned from 9.8 to > 8 > 6. Better count with more power and much better water performance than a 4-5-6 HP will give.

A upgraded 6 to 9.8 or sticker detuned 9.8 to 6 is impossible to tell as all mentioned models are excatly alike. U decide.

Happy Boating

That's a good idea. I'll keep that trick in mind in case I find the right Tohatsu.

Any other brands where I could do the same thing?

Got it! Thanks for the advice Locozodiac.

Already got the Suzumar in my shed so I'll start a new thread.
