I bought a long shaft 9.8 merury motor. I just do not have a way to test if out. It is also too heavy to hang on the back of my 14ft boat where I tried to turn it fire it up. So if there is anyone around northern Ky or close to downtown Cincinnati that has a set up where I could test it outpleasecontact me. I wat to sell it for It is just Too heavy for my boat! Please contant me by personal mail.
