I have 1997, 2 stroke, 25hp, mercury, tiller that I got with a beat very beat up prop. The prop on the motor says 48 19640 A40 13p, then lower it says 9632x. Is this the stock prop that came with the motor? I want to purchase a new oem size prop. I am happy with the performance as is but think it is unbalanced. Any other suggestions??

That is a stock merc prop for that lower unit by the numbers you gave.  Yes, likely came with the engine.

I put cheap Solas stainless props on all my small outboards, and am running a 13 p solas on my merc 25 now.  I am very happy with the performance.

13p in aluminum should treat you well, might need to go down to a 12 or 11p in stainless.


Like a broken record, I'm a huge fan of Turning Point props for performance and price point. :cool:

I found a used stock mercury prop for 35.00. The prop paint is peeling but the metal is perfect, not even any dings. Hopefully this works out.

I also found out my motor has plastic prop nut??

I honestly have never looked up what the actual torque specs are for it. I'm sure they're in the service manual, but I just crank it down until it's snug, then apply firm but not excessive pressure to the ratchet until it stops.
