  • Prop slipping on a '67 mercury 110, 9.8 hp

    When I try to open up the throttle, the engine revs up real high and the boat slows down. I'm sure it is slipping somewhere. I first thought maybe the pin but there is none. Then took apart the gearcase thinking it might be the foreward gear, but it looked fine. I have it all back together now and would like to have some advice on what my problem might be. THANK YOU, Jon

          What about re-hubbing the old propeller? It being loose is what would cause it to slip, right? Would it be worth it? THANK YOU, Jon

            most prop shops won't do the smaller props because the props tend to crack but if you can find one that will do it, it would be fine
