Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Found 140 suzuki outboard

    Are these good motors, comes with controls,guages. My boat starcraft fishmaster 170 the rating is 125hp on my plate. The motor doesnt appear to be heavy. My current motor 1996 75hp force by mercury. I think its all merc except block on this year. Would it just bolt right up? Im pretty sure the power would be fine on this deep v. Any problems with insurance and resale? Also im guessing its 1996 any way to distinguse the year by pictures?

    I have a 2008 115 Suzy 4 stroke and love it. Very quiet and you can't beat the fuel consumption.

      insurance, may be something. As the boat is only rated for 125. that could pose a problem if something happened.

        As far as the weight, the 115 and 140 are identical, just a little difference in carburation or electronic fuel injection to squeeze out some more horse power.

        Not sure about the insurance. I don't recal my carrier asking what the boat was rated to handle.

        I can't tell from the picture but I don't think it is an EFI. I think the 140 didn't go EFI until 1997. Good engine. Like everything else it can have problems. It is a gas guzler but keep it around 4000 and your fuel economy will be much better.

        Parts are easy to come by through Browns Point Marine online.

        I see it has an aluminum prop. I have a stainless, actully 3, that would work on it if you buy it and are interested.

        Look on Kelley Blue book to see if you are being offered a fair selling price.
