  1. Probably the coolest non fishing pic I have from fishing with member On The Lam. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Yea I've heard the jasper horror stories. I looked at Michigan motorz and it seems like they only have mainly newer mercruiser stuff. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. I've kind of estimated it out and I can rebuild the motor plus accessories (alternator, heat exchanger, water and oil pump). For about the average going price of a long block. Yes there are some cheaper but like tradman said you know what you're putting into the motor. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. I'm not sure the boat is an 86. Anything I've found says 67-89 were all the same for the 454s if that helps? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. Just picked up a 10 meter Express that one of the motors (350hp 454) needs a rebuild or to be replaced. When I get back home I'm going out to pick up the bad motor that's on a pallet currently to get it torn down and see if it's rebuildable (it got hot). If it is I'll go through it with bearings and seals and have the heads/valve train done. If not I'm going to be looking for a long block. I've been doing a lot of looking around for them and have seen prices from 2-7k for a long block. Does anyone know what's a good reputable place to order one or a good place to get one somewhere local for a good price? The starboard had a long block about 100 hours ago along with manifolds and risers that were new last spring with about 20 minutes on them so this is the port (standard rotating) engine.

  6. Loose wire on the timer base I believe is the problem (whenever it dies if I push that wire back up it'll start right back up). Going to test it out with a known good timer base and stator tomorrow to confirm. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. Mine doesn't cut back it completely kills the motor unless that is what you mean? I'm going to tear into wires and take the flywheel off and look around under there. When I move around the little timing bracket that goes up under the flywheel is usually when I get spark back and that whole thing moves when throttling up so that may be a good place for you to look.

  8. Replaced lines before I ever ran it. I thought I added that I guess not Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. I tried everything for sunglasses before costas (Oakley, ray ban, smith, bollè) and all had different things I didn't like. Tried a pair of costas and I have 4 pairs now 3 plastic 1 glass. I have mirror blue, yellow, amber and mirrored amber. I really like the amber and mirrored amber for fishing all day. As Vince said the mirrored blue is also a really good option but mine in that color are a ray ban style not wrap arounds so they aren't ideal. The two I wear the most often are my Blackfins and Saltbreaks. Haven't got to wear my Blackfins fishing yet as I just got them but I think they're the most comfortable pair I have just from wearing them daily. Also if you live in the Utica area they have a good selection at gander mountain where you can try them on and they're 20 or 30% off with the store closing discounts.

  10. Confirmed spark issue thought I had it pegged took it out for a shakedown and it acted up again spread some wires apart and got it running for a while up on plane. Will have to tear into the wiring deeper tomorrow Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. Found a bad ground on the back of the shift linkage that would cut out once the linkage moved Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. Timing should just go off the flywheel no? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Both and it cuts out quicker with carb linkage. Is there a nuetral safety on these like the I/Os? I messed with the linkage so thinking maybe that could be it but it was shifting fine Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. Hey thanks for the info I'm just talking jets in a way I'm used to like a snowmobile or dirt bike. I'll check on the choke thing later on toda Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. I'm putting carpet in my aluminum boat that I just had to refloor. There seems to be marine grade glue for it and online at least it says Home Depot has it Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
