Im going to buy a 5hp 4 st long shaft as a backup engine.
Till now im thinking mercury only because it shld be 2 kg lighter than the honda bf5 and am trying to acheive the best possible equilibrium in the boat.
any experience with either?
i dont like the plastic spring loaded spocket to start up in the honda bf5.
havent got an opportunity to check the insides of the merc.
plus ive seen the insides of a 2006 honda bf5 and it was drastically leaking oil from the sump in such a short period of years
i know nothing about merc ... i dont even know if they are japanese.
