  1. It looks like electrolysis. Do you or have you left it in the water near any other boats or shore power?
  2. Your right on with #6 for the drive Lost, but his early 3.7L/185hp I'm pretty sure is manual #8. It covers most of the different variations of the 3.7's of that vintage. Depending on serial# manual #3 might touch on it too but not as detailed as 8 **

    Pretty vague engine description ( 2br-4bl-edelbrock-rochester) for anyone to give any kind of sound advice, but before I went spending money on dead ends I would check the fuel delivery hose from the tank to the water seperator & any other rubber fuel hoses for internal collapse. Seeing a lot of that in the past few years due to fuel quality/ethanol, if not save a few dollars before you start throwing parts at it & have it looked at by a repuital mechanic.
  4. It is a 2 cyln . Same block & displacement as the 9.8 but about 12 lbs lighter.
  5. To the best of my knowledge this was rectified some time ago & the parties involved were identified
  6. Looking for a good working dock bubbler / ice eater either 1/2 or 3/4 hp. PM me with any info thx: Hank
  7. Check the wear plate and gaskets to the lower housing closely & 200* won't hurt a thing for that length of time, I've had no more issues with aftermarket Sierra impellers than with OEM, there can be a bad lot in either. Make sure to grease the cup well and rotate the shaft clockwise as you put the cup / upper housing over the impeller & you should be good to go. If the cuts were on the top of the impeller you might of cut it or started it on the edge of the metal cup or not. Your problem seemed to be evident when you pull it apart but many times with Gen1 drives that tend to overheat at trolling speed & everything else is in order the lower housing is normally the culprit.
  8. There won't be any needed if he keeps it up
  9. As you said> Loosen the cap with the motor running to bleed the air as it fills from the reserve tank or the quicker way is to pull the cap and fill the tank close to the top and bleed it from there the same way.

  12. This is the advice I seek: Is this a serious problem needing immediate attention or can it wait till July/August? (will be a long wait for service now anyway) **It should be addressed asap When these fail is it gradual or all at once? Will continuing to operate this way damage anything other than the dog clutch? **Damage to both the clutch dog & forward gear is happening every time you shift it in to forward. I would guess it's lower shift cable & or worn shift yoke or splines down below. At any rate addressing it now will probably save you grief & money in the end.
