    Re: 57 35 hp seahorse

    Re: Interesting hole in crankcase...

    There is lots of blocks around here too. I wonder if replacement pistons will outlast these OEM's. Wouldn't want this to reoccur. Lake Superior is still open, as soon as ice forms, the next day the...

    Re: Interesting hole in crankcase...

    Yes seen this before, I have repaired these blocks, but no pictures to show...Do you know a good welder?
  4. Re: I bought an 98 Evinrude 25hp and... it has no manual pull starter...!?!

    That's right, Racer, the cowling has the hole plus it is taller. Notice the motors in avatar. Electric start WITH recoil.
  5. Re: I bought an 98 Evinrude 25hp and... it has no manual pull starter...!?!

    I have a very similar motor. Has a rope slot. Love it, a " must have" up in the wilderness here.

    Re: Johnson 1989 70HP Head Gasket

    Probably just came back in from the exhaust because that piston was down when you removed the spark plugs. That's all we can hope.

    Re: Counter rotating outboard questions

    We can put 200 horsepower on an 800 pound snowmobile and race it on water, eh? But can we put a 12 hp motor on an 800 pound airframe and fly a man around the Statue of Liberty? WTF? No carb....a heat...

    Re: Johnson Meteor 100

    Re: Mercury 15 Hp firing problems

    When you pull on the recoil start it affects the power head position with reference to the cowling because things are mounted on rubber. This might allow enough resistance in the shorted wire to...
