    There is a Suzuki section here on iboats. That's where the folks who know Suzukis hang out. Ask your questions in there.

    Sure...go ahead and laugh at my old aluminum boat. It's paid for!

      I have a 1992 Suzuki 2 hp. Its a great little motor.

      The S/O knob you mention is your fuel shut off switch. The engine is water cooled. The impeller is located behind the prop. Its a "dock buster" as it has no gearshift. Reverse is achieved by spinning the motor around. Unfortunately, there is no neutral.

        You hardly need a neutral you could run it wide open and hold it at the dock with one hand.At idle I would think it would hardly move.Just takes a little different driving style.

            The DT2 87 and later motors are rated at 100:1 Using TCW3 rated oil.
            I would use 50:1 especially if it will sit idle for long periods.
