Parsun
« on: Tue 13 Jun 06:44 2017 »
Hi all just trying to get any info on the parsun motors?i am looking at a 4hp and unsure whether to buy a second hand yammy or similar or give the parsun a go brand new with warranty I have purchased motors over the years and always go for popular brands any advice appreciated I actually have a little Johnson sea horse at the moment but it is getting old and I do not want to get stuck as I am going to Moreton island soon and am going to putt out to Curtin reef for a play and would rather make it back to shore than end up in middle of bay with the current 😢
Cheers smithy

PaulG on our site has one I think and I don't think he has been able to
kill his yet, it is a bigger model though.

Cheers Jason

    i have a similar a powertec.mine is a chinese knock off off of a yamaha 15 hp.everything is exactly the same except quality of bolts and finishes.ie bolts exposed rust.use lots of wd40.all parts are exactly the same as yamaha so i just get something from a yamaha dealer if i need it.i have had it three yrs and it has let me down twice.once the prop fell off first day.no split pin in it.second cdi died.i also sank the boat cleaned it up and it is still running perfectly
    check what the parson is a chinese knock off of,if yamaha i would say buy it with a few extra cans of wd40

    On another note I was wondering what to do about the motor and didn't want to spend money on a motor I never really liked and was wandering through some web sites getting an idea of what I was looking at for a new donk when I came across a new 30hp Parsun (don't judge me) ex display for about a third of the price of a new Merc, now the merc was only 6 years old so I figured if I get 2 years out of the Parsun I'm on par, any more and I'm in front.
    Contemplating changing the decals to save face but if you's are wondering about the reliability of these things Watch this space.

    I assume yours is mostly used in fresh water. Has it done any salt water work? Just interested to see how they hold up.

    I only kayak in the fresh so the boat only gets used in the salt, probably over 100 hours on it so far and only some slight cancer around the cowel latch which I'll sort one day, actually prefer it over the Merc (so far).

    Well my pride got the better of me and I bought second hand Yamaha 4HP on the weekend instead of the Parsun apparently not used for a while low hours of an old bloke who lived on a catamaran at Kangaroo Point and it was of his tender still had fuel in it I ditched that and reloaded fresh fuel and she fired up and sounds sweet only issue I cannot see it pumping water out  ???It is apparently an 08 model but there is some writing suggesting it may be an 02 model my question to anyone who can help is where is the outlet on this model as there is no hole or hose up top of motor only an outlet half way down the leg??is that it ??I am happy to flush and replace impeller if that is the outlet but I am booked on the 830 barge Monday morning and really think I am going to struggle for time as this thing called work keeps getting in the way :'(any tips or suggestions or any advice appreciated anyone in Ipswich area who could assist would be unreal I am happy to pay with $ or beer  :)

    Best to get it a fresh impeller. Any good marine place should have a yamaha kit for you.
