  2. Pontoon deck, fiberglass covered pressure treated plywood?

    I have the fiberglass and was thinking I could cover the bottom and edges with glass instead of using marine plywood.

    86 30hp shift arm cable pin replacement

    When attempting to take the shift cable off the motor, the end of the pin broke off. How do you get a hold of the cap lock nut behind the shift handle?
    Is there a sub for a new pin that can be made?...

    Re: 8Ercob jumps around above idle

    Once it starts it jumps around for 4 to 5 minutes then runs great for 20 minutes. After shutting it off, cooling down, same thing.happens again.
    I checked the key before and it wasn' t the problem.
