1989 175xp

New to forum but can't find anything in search.  For the older models is the thrust rod needed.  Just got new to me 1989 175 xp and if I have my trim all the way down, when I accelerate there is a big clunk.  If I bring it up a bit it doesn't do it.  Also not sure what oil has been used in mixture.  What would be best oil to use on this older motor.  I am mixing it in gas, oil injection removed.  Thanks in advance.

Thanks, trying to find used one somewhere. Is it even needed? What oil do you think would be best for this older motor.

Sorry, as I did not get to finish my previous answer to you as I got called away.

 

The XD-100 is a fully synthetic oil that is fairly expensive but provides the very best in anti-wear and engine protection.

 

For your usage, the XD-50 is the best value concerning price, for being a semi-synthetic blend, and not only is good for your motor but minimizes smoke coming out of the exhaust.

 

Carbon formation is minimal with either oil compared to a straight mineral oil like most TC-W lubes.
