I recently purchased a honda 90. I distance purchased it and made the mistake of not asking the shaft length only if it was long or short. Believing that long meant 20 I bought it. Well apparently honda made a 25 inch shaft. Bummer. I can get the transom built up to accommodate the 25 inch shaft not a big deal. However, I was hoping to be able to put a jet pump on this. There is no such thing as a jet pump with a 25 inch shaft. Another bummer.
Honda wasn't sure but they stated that if I took the mid section extension out along with the lower unit then a 20 inch jet pump should be able to be used. Does anyone have any more insight on this? I may just try to buy another motor with a 20 inch shaft but they arent exactly easy to come by in the interior and I would need to sell this one first etc so you get the idea of why I would like to make this work.
Thanks for your help in advance.
