I would like to tap the brains of anyone who has just purchased a Suzuki DF140 recently.
Engine model # DF140TXK4. Does this engine have power tilt and trim? Is this a 2004 engine?
-What hydraulic steering system should I look at?
-Any input at all would be welcome.
-Is a 7.5HP engine too small for emergency/trolling?
My boat is a 1974 Revenge 19'

Suzuki DF140TXK4 would be a 4-stroke 2004 model long shaft (25") with power tilt/trim. Catalog says weight is 421 lbs.

Dreamer, I believe that you want the 20 inch shaft, not the 25. So where it says "X" you need it to say "L"

I have one of those DF 140's on my '85 Revenge and it does just fine. Tops out around 30 Knots. This motor is the most high revving in Suzuki's line.

If it is a good deal then you can run a 25" shaft on a 19 revenge usuing a 6" manula jackplate...I did.
I have a 2005 115 Suzuki 4 stroke on my 76 revenge 19' and absolutely love it. I am running a 20" stilletto SS prop and she hits 40mph on a good day but will do 38 no matter what I load her down with. I cruise at 4k around 24+ mph and burn about 4.5gph giving me about 6mpg which is awesome considering we only have 40 gal tanks. I looked for a 140 but found a great deal on this 115 new so I bit the bullet and am tickled pink. My point is if you find a 115, go for it as well.

Our partner boat Strike3 has the 2005 140hp Suzuki and a 6 hp Nissan both 4 stroke. We'll put in 400 troublefree hours on her this and couldn't be happier. The kicker's fine for our use. Trolling and keeping the boat on station, and emergencies. We have the Baystar hydraulic steering and are pleased with it's performance as well.
