    I have a 97' 25hp mariner 2-stroke and don't know what water pressure PSI range for the motor....

    All I found is 0-15 PSI or 0-30 PSI? Anybody know which one?

    I'm planning to order a electric or hydraulic jackplate when I can.

    I already have a lenco mini trim tabs and 4 blade double cupped propeller.

    I have a gheenoe LT15 with 25hp mariner and I ran into alots of shallow mud airboat trails and salt marsh canals I'm worry about my water presssure is not pumping enough water for my 25hp motor, so that's why I need it.

    Let me know which one.....thanks.

    Recommended that you call the outboard dealer
    for the correct pressure range model to install.

    im thinking your motor will/should pump more than 15 psi, in normal operating conditions......more like 20...i would think a 0-15 would be pegged out all the time....but bretts advice is best...im just speculating...ive never had a gauge on a 25, never really thought i needed one, in fact, my motor man laughed at me once when i wanted to install one...his words were "thats what the pee hole is for..." this is tiller use, btw..if you have a console and remote steer, i can see where the "pee-hole" method is not as practical...
