    Re: Exhaust bellow and power trim leaks

    The rubber exhaust coupling is probably going to need replacement. On the trim hoses, it's difficult to say whether those are bad, or if the fittings on the pump are loose. I would say to dry off the...

    Re: mercruiser 289 inboard

    Yes, please supply the engine and drive models. Should be a tag somewhere with engine serial number, which is what will be the most helpful bit of data.

    Re: Reverse Rotation

    This is just me, but I wouldn't bother with a 305 when there are so many running take out 350s in the world to be had for very small money. To my knowledge, the only difference on a reverse rotation...

    Re: Repowering with twin Mercruiser 4.5L's

    Realistic expectations:
    Keeping same drives with new engines +horsepower: Your boat will perform more or less exactly the same as it does currently. Adding horsepower will assist only with top end,...

    Re: Repowering with twin Mercruiser 4.5L's

    Looking at Targa 27 pics on the web, it would appear that your best option is to stick with what you have and start shopping for another boat. The repower that you are contemplating will cost more...

    Re: Repowering with twin Mercruiser 4.5L's

    You will have to check the X height of the Mercruiser at the transom position you expect them to be installed. As you move the engines outboard that dimension becomes more critical.
    X height is the...

    Re: No spark produced by new coil

    Does the engine spin when you try the starter? I ask this silly question because you said the distributor was full of green scuzz. This makes me think that there are other corrosion-type issues that...

    Re: 1974 Silverline With 140 Mercruiser

    Is there some magic thing about that trim pump that you have to have it? I would switch it out for the OilDyne type which is much easier to deal with for both parts and maintenance. Just me tho.
    As...

    Re: intermittent charging and fuel issue

    I'm guessing here but there could be a break inside one of the wires and you just can't see it. Could also be just that the connection on the alternator has worried loose from vibration and it needs...

  13. Re: Pulling exhaust manifold while boat is still in the water?

    I guess it depends on where the boat's water line is in relation to the location of the engine. If there is any part of the engine below the water line then of course you'll have lots if water...

    Re: 454 belt squeaky / weak start up

    Check your ground strap/negative cable for corrosion and tightness. Undo it and clean underneath and put it back on and grease the connection. Same for all the battery posts and the starter...
  15. Re: Mercruiser 5.7 smoking from exhaust and wont start

    I don't think you mentioned the characteristics of the smoke. Is it thick, wispy, black, gray, blue, white, steamy, or heavy? What does it smell like? Does it leave any sheen on the water? I know...
  16. Re: Nothing seems to match-up after reviewing various forums!

    Evinrude made several versions of the Fastwin from the early 1950s through the early 1970s, so it's difficult to say what year/model yours is. Your serial number should start with 15 or 18. You can...
  17. Re: 2004 5.7 Mercruiser Mag MPI won't fire, at my wits end.

    If you visit your local Mercruiser dealer, they can set you up with the proper power and offer attractive financing that makes a repower less painful. While putting a random milk truck engine in may...
