    "No trouble, but the gaskets can be expensive, I've cut them from stock plastic asbestos sheet from Napa. Just takes a lot of time. Will send you the book."

    Default "success, I removed the upper

    "success, I removed the upper pump housing, the impeller and the lower pump housing. I faced each of them off carefully with a flat file (I learned this trick with aluminum carbureator flanges on lawn mowers as a kid) and coated them with a sealer.

    I decided to splurge and enlarge (a couple drill sizes) the water feed holes in the side of the foot. They just seemed puney and the part of the housing that they are in is not a structural area.

    When I fired it up I had water every where, out the upper exhaust relief, out all sides of the powerhead gasket......lol, at least I have water. Also, I know exactly where the powerhead bolts are so now I can replace it. Thanks for the help and the manual is neat."

    "Glad you got her going. And there is still some summer left.

    Sometimes that gasket under the power head will swell up and stop leaking on it's own. You might try tightening the bolts just a little while its running and see if the leaks stop.

    Glad the book helped. It's a little generic, but seems to cover most of the permutations of those many manufactures. My biggest hurtle was parts numbers -and most of those are Wards numbers as I had access to their micro fisch sheets. Even have a list- but as they are out of business, and micro- fisch is obsolete, I left them out. When I'm done, I'll get the finished book on the web site. But need more feed back and find out where are the errors and hard to understand parts."

    "I took the power head off and cleaned up the plate and both surfaces. I couldn't find any high temp gasket sheets so I decided to us a gray colored permatex brand liquid sealer that has a tem rating of 650 degrees. I have used it as a gasket replacement before with good luck. So, in about 24 hours (cure time) I will report in with results"

    Pretty common leak there. If you get real bored you can remove the shaft and find a spot for an "O" ring seal with lots of grease.

    "want to hear a funny?

    I have a down syndrome son, he is a handfull and really likes to tinker. I got the little engine all tuned up and carb set, it was really pulling on the high end. So I took it and put it on the boat to do a real test. It dies in the middle of the pond, won't restart no matter what I do. I hand paddle back to the bank, set it up in the garbage can. I try everything, finally I pull the flywheel, thought I must have broke the key and lost the timing. Everything is ok. Put it back to gether. Getting ready to pull the reed valves when I noticed a little water in the edge of the carb......I pulled the float bowl and found water.

    I figure, pump the bulb a few times and clear out any water in the tank. A gallon later I realize my little helper had taken the garden hose and filled the gas tank....

    He has been watching me work on this thing so he knew it was really important....lol

    He pulls several stunts a day like this. It never gets dull at our house"

    Hi Folks, New member here... Ok A Monkey Wards (Clinton K 700) 7 hp always in forward gear. Seems like I saw some post on the web LATE last night talking about a busted shift spring. Looked for a owners/repair book but no luck there. Is the repair / parts worth it or should I have it sleep with the fishes? The unit looks about new and starts runs fine......Thanks in advance for your time,.........PJ.............

    Good afternoon, I just bought a 70's Clinton "Sea King" 7hp. Clinton plate says K700. Motor ran well when we started it up. 50:1 oil/gas mix. Ran a full throttle for the 1st 20 min. Fished a while, when I started the engine it would not run at full throttle, only at low RPM. Looking for advice.

    Would appreciate any manuals too. Thanks, CCF

    I have a 72 k700 Clinton and if yours is air cooled llike mine, you need to stop using 2cycle outboard ooil and use chainsaw 2cycle oil at 24:1, mine runs great on that mixture. Been told that 50:1 will bog it down, give her a try.
