    Re: 318 rebuild advice

    "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink."

    Do it your way and listen to the pistons knocking like crazy if one's a reverse rotator. (The pin offset's purpose is to prevent...

    Re: 1996 Mariner 40HP wont fire

    You can buy a DVA adapter for your existing meter on Amazon. Be careful to get one that fits. About$30. My favorite tool!

    Re: 1996 Mariner 40HP wont fire

    Might simply be fouled up inside. I suggest a shot of starting fluid (ether). Don't go nuts with the stuff--if it still doesn't fire there's something wrong.\

    Re: 318 rebuild advice

    I had the head off my starboard, reverse rotating 360 and I can assure you the pistons had a distinctive "F" on them--and they were all pointed at the distributor end of the motor (as they should...

    Re: Mercruiser SSM III Manual

    "Glue" the key to the shaft with heavy grease. (Some people use super glue.)

    Re: Looking for a part

    Drug dealers were responsible for that tunnel, not honest people seeking a new life. And, seriously, how many of those tunnels get dug?

    Actually, it's way higher than that, and not many people have the courage to climb a 40 foot ladder, then rope down the other side.

    Try this before you driving 2 1/2 hours possibly for nothing:

    Find yourself an outboard gas tank, hook it to your carb, and pump the bulb stiff as possible. If the thing leaks, drop the float...

    Re: Manifold gasket

    The suggestions came from Barr and OSCO, as I recall. Their idea, apparently, is to keep excessive silicone plugging up the outlet holes in the elbow (where water finally meets the exhaust). I've...
