175 SportJet swap

Postby Riverbumb117 » Tue Jul 09, 2019 11:25 am

Melted a piston in the 175 and looking to replace with a new 200. Other than the exhaust will this match up to my pump or is there a better option for an upgrade. Parts are getting harder to find and would like to get away from carbed setup. Wouldn’t mind a 4 stroke but I’m sure there are reasons why merc didn’t do one.

Pump is the same you will need to change the impeller. You will need three more inches to the transom to fit the expansion chamber. The adapter plate is longer.
