  1. Re: How often do most here change out Water pump?

    Yes, apply grease to the inside of the water tube seal. Also the splines of the drive shaft.

    When you have the lower unit out, Inspect the mid-shaft bushing for wobble or deterioration. If you...
  2. Re: How often do most here change out Water pump?

    BTW - I boat exclusively in saltwater.
  3. Re: How often do most here change out Water pump?

    I change mine out every 300 hours +/-. For me, that is about every two years. But I have also installed external heat sensors on each manifold wired to analog gauges on my console, so I monitor heat...

    Re: BF 200 codes

    Glad it worked out so well.
  5. Re: O2 Sensor warranty extended for BF200 and BF225

    Sorry to hear about that. Please keep us posted if any progress is made with Honda.

    From your excellent pictures, I cannot judge whether the carbon build up on the outside of those sensors is...

    Re: BF 200 codes

    It's actually called the IAC - Idle Air Control. See attached.

  7. Re: O2 Sensor warranty extended for BF200 and BF225

    I agree with Ian on this. There have been very few posts on this forum about the HO2 sensor failing on the BF 250. So I suspect there is another issue.

    The first place I would look is the quality...
  8. Re: how come my used gear oil looks different?

    Roger that. Thanks for the insight.
  9. Re: how come my used gear oil looks different?

    Experience speaks! Thanks Ian. Personally, I've never seen that. Do you know why it happens?

    Re: Tell tale ??

    Ditto. And make sure the hose is supple and not kinked.
  11. Re: how come my used gear oil looks different?

    With 108 hours, the gear oil should not be black. It should come out about the same color as it went in, just a little dirtier. If you didn't get metal shavings on the magnetic drain plug, I doubt if...
  12. Re: BF225 starving fuel : maybe VST float stock closed

    Well, personally I wouldn't change the regulator unless it tested out as faulty. But I'm a tight wad. Do you have a Helm Shop Manual? The testing procedure is in there.

    If no manual, send an...
  13. Re: Odd noise when bf225 is shifted into gear.

    Agree with Ian. Also, make sure that the two washers (thrust washer and prop washer) on each side of the prop are installed correctly and are true on a straight edge. The proper orientation is shown...
  14. Re: BF225 starving fuel : maybe VST float stock closed

    Well, I think you might hope that that HP filter did it's job, even though it is in a sorry state. So clean out everything meticulously, put it back together and see if that cures the problem. If...

    Re: Honda 225 surge issue

    It could be lots of different things. Try to provide more detail on the situation.

    When you first turn on the key switch, are you getting two beeps which would indicate that your alarm is working?...
  16. Re: BF225 starving fuel : maybe VST float stock closed

    No pictures. But sediment in the fuel pump bowl is the likely culprit. If so, there are other screens and filters that could have been affected. See the attached for a list of all the filters and...
  17. Re: Power trim not working, will trim tabs help?

    When it comes to trim tabs you have two choices - hydraulic and electric. I've had a set of Lenco electrics on my boat since 2008 and they still work just fine. The Bennett hydraulic trim tabs have a...
  18. Re: On vaca day 3 and BF225 died on water any help would be great best- Thank you

    Glad you got it fixed. Happy boating.
  19. Re: Stumped - 2 New Lower units neither of them pumping water?

    Check the water intakes to make sure they didn't put tape over them or blocked them for shipping.
  20. Re: On vaca day 3 and BF225 died on water any help would be great best- Thank you

    Forget the first sentence - engine will still crank if kill switch is activated.
