It has the gear ratio as the motor year calls for,1998 Evinrude 225. Dubee, you say yes. Besides gear ratio how?
Never checked the ratio before the other one trashed, so really don't no.

Could the prop have been damaged (bent) and not noticed?

Had the pitch on the prop changed from 24 to 22, got rpms back up to 5800. What is weird is the 24 pitch 4 blade will run 6000 rpms. Both are 14 1/4.
The rpm drop was right after new lower unit put on.

Could be gears not meshing correctly.

sounds like a different gear... if something wrong and/or bad in tha gear case usually it (or motor) isn't long for this world...

I'm thinking Different gear.

You haven't talked about GPS speed difference, which would clue us in.

Sounds like you got a 1.75-1 instead of a 1.86-1
