    Re: 1977 Mercruiser steering problem

    Re: Help with a too high Idle.

    based on item 6 in post #1, its highly likely the carb is in need of a rebuild...with a high idle speed, the idle mixture screws should have little (if any) control ...
  3. Re: Erratic High Idle 8.1 L MPI with 2007 ECM Engine s\n 670174 Manufactured 08/06

    The material I read today suggests the IAC function has been incorporated into the digital/electronic throttle control subsystem....I'd be inclined to concentrate the troubleshooting to those...
  4. Re: Erratic High Idle 8.1 L MPI with 2007 ECM Engine s\n 670174 Manufactured 08/06

    There may not be a stand alone IAC...I'm thinking the DTC subsystem may incorporate that function...

  5. Re: Erratic High Idle 8.1 L MPI with 2007 ECM Engine s\n 670174 Manufactured 08/06

    I'd rule out vacuum leak as the idle speed is low (vacuum leak = more air = increased RPM).

    I'd suggest starting with the RINDA unit and use the STBD engine to get some baseline data...say lowest...

  8. Re: 4JH5E with ZF HURTH HBW 250 transmission - Cant remove transmission from engine block

    think you are on the right path...I would suspect the input shaft is hung on the damper plate (or coupler) which is bolted to the flywheel.

    Re: Rebuild Sherwood raw water pump

    if you have the new parts, you can usually make a good guess on where the old parts end...a hooked pick can also be useful for pulling some of those seals...if the seal is metal cased (around its...

    Re: Steady Buzzer Sound

    If its the audio warning horn, then it sounds like the wiring in the dash has gotten loose (maybe).

    if you are referring to your damper plates (bolted to the flywheel), yes they wear out (and otherwise deteriorate). If yours are original you'd be crazy to not to replace them while the engines are...
