fury prop

 I have a 2013 E-tec 200 H.O. on a 2006 Blazer 190 Pro-V, single console.  I put on a 14" diameter,  24" pitch Mercury Fury prop and the gap between the blade tip and the trim tab was about 1/4 inch.   It ran fine.  I then put on a 14" diameter, 25" pitch Fury and decided NOT to run it, because the gap was only about 1/8 inch.   Someone suggested I remove the trim tab, and it would probably not make any difference, and I could run.   Then, they said  I could get a trim tab that was "flatter" and install it.   Any suggestions?     Would it be ok to  "saw off" the slightly angled part of the trim tab?  (I also am sending this question to customer service, but I figure the more information I can gain, the better).

   Thank you very much.

Re: fury prop

By installing a "flatter" trim tab, the person I talked to just meant to install a cover plate, with no trim tab.  I have hydraulic steering and apparently this change will not affect anything.  But-- Any advice/suggestions would be welcome.

Re: fury prop

We cannot advise on non-Evinrude parts

 

The trim tab supplies cooling water to the exhaust and the prop hub, don't forget

Re: fury prop

Dear Bluewater Bill,

   I have some very interesting/confusing information regarding  my motor E200DHLAAB, serial no 5355333, with a birthdate of 06-2012.  "Jami" at warranty.evinrude@brp.com has told me the motor apparantly has the wrong part.....that model E200DHLAAB is manufactured with a flat inlet water cover (part no. 336284) in place of a standard trim tab.  I assume this flat inlet water cover has NO tab attached to it, or am I wrong?   The number on the cover that came on my motor is 338742.    I wonder if my dealer I bought it from (Coast Marine, Jackson, MN) switched it, or if Evinrude, somehow, just put on the wrong part!?!   (I seriously doubt if my dealer switched it.)

   Regardless,  I am wondering now,....Does the exhaust and prop hub NOT need and/or not receive cooling water with the flat inlet water cover?   I am very confused.  Anyway, I guess once the correct part is put on,  and no tab is attached to it,  I will no longer have to worry about the prop blade being too close to the trim tab.

   Thanks for your advice.

    Sincerely,

  Andy Williamson

Re: fury prop

Production and engineering often change or substitute items during a manufacturing run so what might be installed last month is different this month.

 

The flat plate is listed in the latest AAB model parts list for your particular motor. Give it a try. Your dealer can call his dealer hot line for the latest info.
