    Stuck Motor? Stuck Outdrive?

    The 302 c.i. motor on this 1975 sterndrive in not turning over and seems stuck. The starter was removed and seems to be perfectly o.k. When parked, the motor and sterndrive were supposedly o.k. The...
  10. Damage to Deck and Topside Trim on 1975 Sea Ray

    My first reaction to the weathering of the trim and deck on this Sea Ray was that a good portion of the wood needed to be lightly sanded and treated with a coat of thinned epoxy. The hatches on the...

  13. Re: Trouble with Ignition System on a 1973 Evinrude 85 h.p. V-4 Outboard

    It is the right stator for this motor. Had to inspect and realign the factory fittings to the motor and insulate the coils with epoxy. It started and idled o.k.
  14. Re: Decarbonizing Motors and Cooling System Repairs

    "Fl....scott" , never liked your tone in this conversation. I don't need any more comments from you on my thread. So please desist. I'm fine with a difference of opinion.
  15. Re: Decarbonizing Motors and Cooling System Repairs

    At least they start and idle at the proper temperature now!!! Anyway, a boat shop mechanic told me 50 h.p. is fine for light cruising in that boat. I also got the 85 h.p. Evinrude for a second motor....
