Re: Eska 7HRSPWR, Model 1707
The shifter problem is most likely a rust problem "the nuetral clutch" and shift lever dog, turn it up side down and shoot PB Blaster at the drive shaft and soak it, see if you can squirt light oil in there, make sure if this is a twist grip that the grip is in the shift position or you will be locked out of shifting, if you don't never mind, if it is and has no markingsyou can feel your way to it withe the TG
These people are Authorized resellers of Eska parts http://www.boatsportandtackle.com/servlet/StoreFront I have no affiliation other than having done business with them several times, good people to deal with. I strongly recommend that you buy a parts manual, Eskas are easy and you can extrapalate from the parts diagrams... I don't think I would wast money on a shop manual, but find the Tecumseh carb and engine manual floating around here or there you will need that. and its around....just ask
There are two ways of getting on me bad side, boys: I don't like kids playing in me yard, and nobody but me touches me thermostat !
