    Default 1990 150 with broken crankshaft.

    Hey techs....what is a good labor price for a crankshaft replacement on this baby? It's bigger than I usually work on. Crank busted off flush with flywheel when starter engaged at near full throttle. Thanks, Tim
    P.S. I have a crankshaft and all bearings, that's why the job is attractive to me.

    Another one.
    Anyone remember when you could buy a brand new Ford Maverick for $1,999. Was Fords answer to the cheap Japanese stuff coming overseas. I had one, C4 automatic with 250 cu. in. upgrade. She ran like a "raped ape". Outran the cops once even. Paid $2,250 bucks....best car I ever owned. 24 mpg. Life was good. Making $2.75 an hour at the Evinrude dealership. What the he!! happened? Kids could go to school without getting executed, and pot and cigarettes were the worst things haunting them.

    Ha! What kind of beer? Certainly an interesting comparison! Hamm's here is $16 for a 30 pack. That lasts me a month, little less in summer when that ice cold brew calls for a second round. Then the wife and grandpa invited for a toast, so times 3.

    Labatts when we head to camp. Molson great too. That's why your still healthy, Racer.
    Crankshaft....yup beer is still one helluva value. Let's see....12 oz times 30 divided by 128....3 gallons of beer for 16 bucks....why drive? 3 gallons of gas is 16 bucks too. I'll just stay home and drink? Have my customers drop their stuff, order parts on line? Now that's a pretty damn good deal, eh? Can't afford ammo, but stocked up 30 years ago. Nobody gonna come and steal my Hamm's.

    What happened to the flywheel at lift off near wide open throttle? Similar to the Russian Tank "Jack in the Box" issue?
