  7. Re: Motor cant go down and freezing weather approaching

    Hide the gearcase under the guest room bed, good place to stash stuff without detection or can you pull the boat further back on the trailer to trim the engine down?
  8. Re: Tilt trim on a 1996 mercury won't go down from control box

    Why did you install a new trim switch? What was it doing before? Does the engine trim down from the cowl mounted switch?

    Welcome to the condescending know it all club who some love to prove their superior knowledge and dangle a solution as long as you pay homage to their wisdom and ego. That's why they drop the one...

    Re: Ethanol vs Ethanol Free?

    Yep, I run Stihl synthetic 50-1 fuel in all my Stihl saws, blowers and weed wackers, $35 a gallon at Ace hardware but it works and is guaranteed for 2 years.

    Do you know the origin of this engine? Where was it kept, dehumidified warehouse? Any way to validate the serial number? Since it's never been registered by a dealer or owner does it still have a...
