    New motor wont start- need advise.

    I put a quart of that in a 1980 F150 with a 300 straight six in it. Stopped the noisy lifters and never came back. Good stuff.

    Boats are worth what someone is willing to pay for them. If you like it and the survey checks out go for it. Or keep looking.

    Looks like stuff Gary Drayton found.

    Ok I'm a merc man. And now I see it's an older model.

    Does that thing have cats on it? Should not have fuel back in the map sensor either. If it has oxygen sensors in it try pulling those out and see if it runs any better with the holes open. Starting to sound like restricted exhaust. Don't believe it's a direct replacement unless it's in a Volvo box with a Volvo number on it.

    You can try turning the distributor a little and see if it acts any different. Also try opening the throttle plate and spray some carb cleaner in and see if it will run off of that.

    New motor start up

    Don't just start up and let idle to much, slowly fluctuate the rpm up and down to 1500-2000. You will want to break that cam in. Even if you have roller lifters.

    The ANT SCOUTS are out in N J already.

    Hey Cy heads up, Friendlys on upper front street in Binghamton has closed. There is the Spot diner about 2 blocks south on the same side. That's a good place to stop on the way up.

    I got a great load-rite from Dinbokowitz Marine in Allentown. And they were great to deal with.

    220 SSI Bravo 3 Props

    You are going to need your drive ratio for anyone to give you the proper choice. Either 2.0 or more likely 2.2. Number will be on the sticker on the drive or on the serial number sticker on the motor that should have been installed when new. My suggestion would be 24's

    Engine / outdrive problems

    Remove the belt and start spinning pulleys by hand. You will know when u find the culprit. Smoke and smell most likely the belt.

    New boat owner

    Sounds right. Yes the u joints are out of the transon but they will have or should have to remove the input shaft in order to change the joints properly.

    low oil pressure, high temp coming off plane

    I do know that the thru hull water fitting from the drive to the impellar housing can become blocked with scale. May want to check that also

    Find someone who has one and offer them a thirty pack and a free ride to borrow for a quick tryout.
