Outboard for C26

Postby Ira Madsen » Wed Aug 09, 2017 6:10 pm

My 1979 9.9 long-shaft Chrysler outboard is no longer reliable. I intend to replace it with a new 4 stroke. The 'Sailor' outboards appear to have been designed to fit the transom of the C26. In particular, the top of the engine case is flattened in the front, fitting the transom aperture perfectly when lifted from the water.

So, in shopping for a replacement, do I need to consider the cowl size? Are there motors in the 10hp range that will fit the C26 without modifications?

Surely, other owners have already been thru this! What brand/size outboard is on your C26? All input appreciated.
