I think you'll find that 9.9hp can be fairly simply uprated to 15hp with just a carb change.

You'll prefer the acceleration of a 2 stroke Unless you don't like the noise that is.

It should be on the clamp or on a recessed aluminium disc on the side of the powerhead.


I assume you're aware of the other limitation of 4 strokes?

Are you expecting to cover the full purchase price of a 15hp 4 stroke with the sale of the 2 motors?

Fair play.

Are you aware of the weight penalty you'll have? A 15hp 4 stroke could be hard to move without a trolley.

The 9.9, I sold an identical one a while back for 500.

Not sure on the smaller one, got to be 250 minimum.

You might want to try a 15hp 4 stroke first though, you may find that it's got less get up and go from a standing start than the 9.9hp you have now.
