    2012 Mercury 60hp, efi/elptt

Rated:

 Just curious, how do you find, or does anyone know the prop size for the 2012 Mercury 60hp efi/elptt? There is a sticker that says "12 X 28 1.83:1" (stock prop size?)


Also, I have a Lowrance 4-X pro depth/fish finder, is the cone of display, straight down, rear to front, side to side? The transducer is mounted on the transom. These are the items that came with the new Tracker 175 TXW, and there is no answer to these in the manuals, nor could I find online.


Thanks


Rob

 but here goes:
Prop size can vary depending on load and desired speed and hole shot. A 12 x 28 sounds like a good place to start.


Fish finder display is almost straight down.

 Remove the prop and look under the nut. The transducer looks straight down if the face of it is parallel with the bottom of the boat.

 The 1.83 is the gear ratio. Prop size should be stamped on the side of the hub on a Mercury. Its not a 12 x 28 prop. Should be 15 or 16 pitch.

 Tracker recommends a 10 3/8 X 14p aluminum prop for that boat with a 60 EFI 4-Stroke. The cone signal is usually side to side, not front to rear. I hope this helps.
