    Default "I grew up running 25+ yea

    "I grew up running 25+ year old Evinrudes etc on freshwater lakes and rivers. Given the weight difference between 2 stroke and 4 stroke, I'd dearly love to keep my '04 9.8 running forever. We didnt do much special to those old motors, just yearly maintenance, fix'em when they broke.

    But...is there anything I can do to keep this motor running since its essentially irreplaceable?

    1. Regular freshwater flushing (I use it in salt)
    2. Annual maintenance
    3. Keep it from getting stolen
    4. ?????

    Thanks"
