Default 2008 Suzuki DF175 (CR) For Sale

2008 Suzuki DF175 Outboard(PORT) (CR) 25" Shaft For Sale $5000 OBO. Starboard motor crapped out on me last week, repowering with Suzuki 200's and selling the good port engine. These have been extremely reliable engines since purchased new in Feb 2008 and oil, filters and lower gear lube have been changed religiously every 100 hours since new. This is an engine which has been ran on a regular basis and if not on the ocean, ran on muffs every week without fail. Engine has 1840 hours per tach. Plan to keep on boat until I sell it so any perspective buyer can see it run. Engine only for sale, no rigging as I plan to use existing rigging on my repower. Prop is not included. Questions, please pm or call me @ 904-472-8015. Located Jacksonville, FL area. Thanks!
Dale

Damn Shel... sorry to hear. I've been following your boat journey, since I too am a Caravelle owner.

That boat will be a HOSS with twin 200's!

Yes sir. I think the 200's will be the ticket. They weren't out when I got the 175's and with the good service I had out of them, can't see switching brands.

Hey Bryan. Couple valves broke, damaged cylinder wall and rings. 9 years and almost 2000 hours with zero issues, not going to complain just going to repower with Zuke 200's.

I'm running Powertech OFS4 15.25"dia x 20"pitch blade now (turning 5800 rpms with the 175's), thinking I'm going to have to jump up to 15.25" x 22 4 blades at least. Listening to all advice and reading all the reports and blogs I can.

I tried the 3x16x20.5 Suzuki props on my 175's shortly after I got them and I had cavitation issues that were pretty noticeable. Stayed with the 3x15x21 which turned 6000 wot. Switched to the Powertech 4 blades about 4 years ago to get more stern lift and flatter ride, big improvement there. May still try the 3x16x23 just to see if the cavitation goes away with the 200's. Thanks for the input.

Sorry to hear that Shel, if you want to borrow my set of 3x16x23 you are more than welcome to them. What caused the valves to get bent? Foreign object or jumped timing?

Not absolutely sure. I guess the timing could have messed up or possibly valves got out of adjustment. Could have spent another $500 to break it down completely and figure it out but decided to cut my losses. I wouldn't mind borrowing those props after I get the new engines. Going to break them in with the props I have for the first three hours but I know I'm going to need more pitch than 20" props I have now. Appreciate that!

Wondering if the gear ratio on your 175's is the same as the 200 hp DFs? Saw someone looking for a LU for a 200.

The gearcase is the same size but the ratio is different. I've used a 175 on a 250 when I was in a jam, I had to run a different prop to make her run since it was twins.
