  1. Thanks Sent from my VS425PP using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. I'm not sure of the order... Got rushed replacing a flywheel and don't remember the order they came out. Large rub washer, spring washer, and a silver spacer. I have it... Spring washer, silver spacer, then rubber washer slides over the whole assembly. I can take a pic in the morning if needed. Sent from my VS425PP using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    I'm not sure about 4 strokes. I imagine its possible Sent from my VS425PP using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. I bought stuff from Barrett. Think the name was actually called bilge cleaner. All you gotta do is pour some in the bottom, fill with enough water to slosh around some. Take her for a spin to shake it up in the bottom. Go home, empty in a bucket or drain. Stuff lifts the oil without any hand scrubbing, pressure washing(causes excessive moisture in the boat), or corrosion on the motor if I/o. Don't empty at the dock. Oil is still in the bilge water.

    Bring lots extra plugs... Like Les said. They load up and foul out. I use to do it with a 60 HP merc. Learned the hard way to bring extra plugs one morning. You can also get two drift socks to slow you down at higher idles... But as Les said again... Save on gas, use the kicker. I'm considering putting a bigger kicker on mine so I can make it back in even if main motor overheats, points burn up, or whatever else stupid can happen on the water. Its no fun being towed in Sent from my VS425PP using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Another tool to add to the arsenal. Lesson learned! All the other connections were cleaned up. Just shows how important that ground is. Sent from my VS425PP using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Figured it out after trying to jump it without the truck. Bad ground... The bolt. The bolt that holds the starter mount up had just enough oil on it from wd 40 must of stopped connection... Sprayed it with crab cleaner. Cleaned the mount up. Jumped it with a screw driver. Worked. Used the key... Worked... Grr I hate mechanics LoL. Trouble shoot trouble shoot trouble shoot...

  8. Yes starter works. Bench tested. Ones brand new, ones the original. Tried both. Cleaned and tightened connections. Hooked my truck to the starter. Used a screw drive to jump it... Sounded like it was going to try... Sent from my VS425PP using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Replaced. Flywheel because it rang like a bell and started once every 5 tries... Put all the wiring back to where it was... Starter engages but will not spin flywheel... Any ideas? Mecr 120 69. Flywheel is off a 74. Flywheel part #s were a match...any ideas? Sent from my VS425PP using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Watch out for debris. Streams are flowing hard. Sent from my VS425PP using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Because you don't put a fish over your head and throw it as hard as you can against the water surface with the intent of keeping it alive...wasn't just bass either. Was pike, pickeral, bass... Anything that wasn't sunfish perch or crappy they were killing... Sent from my VS425PP using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Its one thing to eat them another to let them rot in Dean's Cove weekend after weekend. [emoji22] Good Luck this season Sent from my VS425PP using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Leave the Bass on Cayuga alone... Guys smashing them off the water because there not getting crappy... Bass tourney guys killing close to a 100 a day last year on their smaller tourneys...
