Test. Been unable to create a post.

If this works, I’m adding pix and questions about some overdue maintenance on my little motor

The ENTER-NET Fisherman
picking this back up after putting it down a while. snow peas had to get ripped out so i could put cukes in, and those just started climbing. third round of snow peas might not get to do anything before the heat, but the last carrots are just getting right. pollen, gnats, and oak leaves.

i finally got around to sitting down and putting the new water pump kit in the foot. as mentioned, i cleaned up all the mating surfaces, then greased the area where the drive shaft has the cracked rubber underneath that. was a b***h to get the upper pump housing shut on all the fins going the right direction, the little nylon washers lined up, loose o-ring in the right position hanging on upside down to the housing, etc. but it turned fine once I got it tightened up so i decide to test it. all this might turn into just a learning exercise if i can catch up with MDaddy sometime soon, since my lower unit has a bent prop shaft and his don't. heck of an offer, props again to you sir.

as suggested, I sprayed some corrosion block type stuff up into the main mounting holes for the lower unit, brushed some stuff out, and have been taking the 5/8" bolts and running them in and out with some grease. on the reassemble they went back in almost without needing a wrench till they came tight (i made sure to keep the bolts in their original holes). didn't torque them to anything specific, so i'll be revisiting that.

motor fired right up and ran on the hose, appears to move water just fine again. doesn't want to idle very well, but I have the full throttle range so i'm hoping some seafoam and high RPMs will keep me from having to do any more work right now... mostly because i NEED this boat next month for an annual river trip. which brings me to the next phase of this project.

anybody got a trailer..?


not too bad, right?

BUT

kind of like fire needs 3 things to eat

and plants need 3 things to grow

I need a trailer under my boat and motor for the triumvirate to amount to anything more than a dang ole yard ornament.

here's a wild guess. call tommy stone at trailer shop mt pleasant. he's loaned us stuff several times when we were in a bind to move stuff.
