4 stroke outboards? Again

Recommended Posts

Virgil Kane

Can a small 4 stroke outboard motor (10-15-25 HP) be laid on it's side?  Are the days of throwing the outboard in the bed of a truck for rental boats gone ?

I have heard conflicting answers to this question and don't know what to believe.

 

Thanks

Virgil

Typically, the smaller outboards with handles are fine to be left with the handle "up". Not on its side. However each manufacturer will have a do and don't do in the manual. Some are ok on one side, but not the other. Pretty much every manual can be found with a google. 

 

If if you're gonna do it a lot, build a little frame to mount it on. Can't hurt it that way, and it can't move around.

This is an older Honda 10 hp. Most of them have a picture plate showing the correct way to lay them down.

I know my 9.9 has a sticker on what side it can be laid on, just like mentioned above.
