  1. Same thing happened 2 yrs ago to me in Sept. I have a 305 V8 mercruiser in my PY. Anyways it was what I ended needing is a new coupler, pinion gear, main shaft and upper unit and it was expensive. I had Mikes Mobil Marine fix it and I towed the boat there. Pretty involved repair and on a V8 Merc I know you have to pull the engine. Good luck.
  2. Looking to have someone look at my boat located at Hughes Marina, Williamson NY.  The boat will sometimes start and idle for a good 10 minutes or so and then quit.  Other times it won't start and when turning the engine over it will surge in rpm's and then quit without idling.  

     

    Anyways let me know of any interest, hourly rate, travel rate etc.  thanks and stay safe

     

    PS  I can meet you at Hughes anytime too.

      Called the number twice and just had music.  I'll just pull the module inside the distributor cap and see if that works.

  6. Here is how I do it. I use a big tank filled with anti freeze that holds like 6 gallons maybe its more I'd have to look at it. I put the muffs on the out drive and start it up in neutral of course. I wait till it comes to temp.which will take a few minutes. Then I hook the muffs up to the tank with the antifreeze tank sitting on top of the stern and restart the motor. Takes about a minute maybe a bit more and the temp will climb to half way up the guage and then the pink anti freeze comes out of the exhaust manifolds. I run the tank till darn near 0 so I know it goes through the block. Has worked so far. I should note that I usually use -50 RV anti freeze. The reason I run nearly out is so I know for a fact its getting through the whole engine. If you don't warm you engine up first it seems to me the thermostat would prevent the antifreeze from going completely through the engine. I have a 305 V8 in my PY.
  7. Yep folks were fishing out of Hughes on Thurs. Saw several cars parked and a truck/trailer etc.etc. Maybe stop at his house on the way down to the ramp just to make sure though but like I said saw folks there that were out. His house is the big gray house that sometimes will look a bit green depending on the sunlight!
  8. If you take PP I'll take them. Just pm your pp address and I'll get funds to you. thanks
  9. I have an IO in mine, 305 merc, w/4 barrel and a Pro kicker PS over sized trim tabs too
  10. You should do a search from a couple of years ago and see my tribulation with Arney's in Sodus Point. Speny over 6k on a rebuilt motor, 2 stroke Johnson Ocean Runner 225. In the 2 years I had that motor I may have gotten 20 hrs. on the water out of it and i ain't kiddin. Another fellow fisherman from our marina has taken his Merc. 4 stroke to a well known service provider again in S.P. but not Arney's. Dumped several hundred bucks into the motor and they couldn't even come close to fixing it, and finally took it to Sager Marine in Canadaguia . They might have fixed it for him. I haven't seen him this week yet to find out. I would have to say off hand the fella that gets the most props and pos. f.b. here on LOU is Hank in Port Bay.
  11. me too great boats. These boats have a nice wide beam at 9.5'. Very stable and don't get blown around alot in the wind cause they are low slung, heavy too so a good rough water boat.
  12. These are very well done, better than the asking price, least ways I think so. Yep I speak from buying some and they are indeed nice.
  13. I'll grab 2 from ya. Just pm me your PP address etc thanks
