  1. Re: 350 Mercruiser straight inboard overheating

    Man....I'm in the wrong business. $800 bucks for an opinion? Ha! Are you in Canada?
    The "thin" #882 castings are especially suspect if they've been overheated, and yes one would ASSUME that they...
  2. Re: 350 Mercruiser straight inboard overheating

    Where are you located? $400 per hour? You gotta be kidding. We contract to rebuild the 8000 hp engines on the Great Lakes ore carriers. My boss charges about $450 an hour, pays us $50 each. Complete...

    Re: OMC Fuel tank problem

    There are problems with these hoses that are grey laminated. The innermost liner delaminates and plugs up the coupling or even the primer bulb port. This worst thing can happen is that your motor...
  4. Re: 350 Mercruiser straight inboard overheating

    Ha sounds like a blast. So it got worse over time. I love outboards too, rebuilt my first Johnson at the age of 10 years old. Sold it for a huge profit. Probably made myself $2 an hour for my time...

    Re: Beware of Chinese fuel pumps

    Beware of spark that checks out okay too. If someone has changed the coils, then you had BETTER take it apart. Beware of these hard plastic coils, they like to crack....then later arc through. These...

    Re: OMC Fuel tank problem

    Is that a factory Evinrude tank? I would suggest finding a REAL fuel tank....like a steel OMC with real stainless steel pins. What you have is a problem just waiting to happen, my friend. If it has a...
  7. Re: 350 Mercruiser straight inboard overheating

    Welcome to the forum. Did the problem begin suddenly, or build up over time? This has the Chev 350 4 barrel 255 hp. Does this have the 882 heads (last 3 digits on head casting#), and are they the...

    Re: Beware of Chinese fuel pumps

    That's good to know. Another question. Will the little square pumps supply enough fuel for the "Big Twins"? Probably, eh? Why? The inlet to carb is only 3/16". I'm putting the 3/8" on this one,...
  9. Re: Mercury 4.3 alpha 1 drive stalls during excelleratipn

    The hole closest to the pivot point on the acceleration pump will increase the stroke. On the other side, the throttle arm side, some carbs have adjustment holes there too. On that side, to increase...

    Re: 1984 Force 50hp I need basic advice

    You can put it in gear and try to spin the prop. If the hub is bad, the prop nut will not spin with the prop. If that's the case, Tim's Outboard in Hackensack Minnesota probably has a good used prop....

    Re: Beware of Chinese fuel pumps

    Interesting. My wife and son are part Chinese, I'd better be careful. So it's probably made in Minnesota.

    Re: My Sea King GG8977A

    Supposed to be 40:1 on these. I think it's a motor made mostly with Johnson Evinrude parts. Gale is a good motor. I run my 5 hp Montgomery Wards Gale at 64:1 on Amsoil Saber pre mix 2 stroke and non...

    Beware of Chinese fuel pumps

    How bout this? The guy traded in his motor to me, he couldn't get it running even with his new fuel pump. I looked it over finally after 2 years. The hole wasn't drilled all the way through for the...

    Re: 0777647 - Amplifier Kit

    Are any other wires bad? Could it have gotten a power spike into the kill circuit?

    Re: 73 Evinrude Ignition Diagnosis Question

    If Racer can't help, try Tim's Outboard in Hackensack Minnesota. I might have a used one here too. I think it's listed on eBay.

    Re: My new project, sometime. 1932 Johnson OK-60

    Is it still the cork float? I have a giant box of misc floats.
  19. Re: Will new rings fix this low-compression 6hp?

    Oh, here is what you get for that money.
    I give a one year warranty. If you can't trust your own work, than WHO can you trust? (Besides your 2nd wife.)

  20. Re: Will new rings fix this low-compression 6hp?

    Just sold a 1975 6 and it had 75 to 80 psi. I sell 'em for $550 to $750, with a real gas hose and steel tank. These are perhaps the best all around fishing motor ever made. I'll take every one that I...
