  • mercury 90 hp pulling hard to right (starboard :)

    2017 mercury outboard 90 hp (1F904531D and 2B393883) on a 2017 Suntracker 21 foot pontoon boat. Suddenly motor started pulling hard to the right. Just before this started happening I bumped into a boat dock (not too hard) and then I was fishing around submerged trees and a boat wave lifted my pontoon boat up and dropped me on the tree (pretty hard). I checked this condition out on the web and people said the trim tab needs to be adjusted. However, This motor doesn't have one right above the prop like other motors. The one that is there is flat with no fin on it. (76214 part number for trim tab)

    You can use trim tab part number 8M0091534 that has the fin to replace the one you have. Need to look to see if skeg or something on lower unit is bent, look to see if motor got shifted on transom. May have a damaged pontoon causing it to pull one way.
