    Starter issues and rust

    You need to keep that bilge water level a bit lower,getting up to a starter also allows water to enter the main below of an outdrive What you could do is install a small 500 gph at the rear of the transom wired to you main bilge. Turn the pump on when going up on plane . Gets rid of the water before it splashes onto the flywneel . For access, mount it on a piece of alum or SS 2 inches by x length

    Engine Overheating

    I would do the opposite. It sounds like its only happening under power when the drive is being lifted upward when planing or on plane. Your sucking air.Try pushing air back thru the water inlet hose looking for bubbles where they dont belong. You should only see them and the water inlet holes on the drive and nowhere else

    Anchor recommendations

    typical manufacturers idea to built it so only their item will fit , talk about a captive sales practice. Learn to modify the things you need to fit where you want them to go.If too wide ,shorten the end rods, or shorten the flukes.

    Anchor recommendations

    There is no anchor dedicated to a boat, any anchor of the correct size will work .

    Power outlets only working when plugged into shore

    Doubtful the inverter is connected directly to the AC side. You may have an inverter only on the non GFI outlet and the GFI protected ones are shore AC power

    Oil filter-Which way to turn to get it off

    marine dipsticks go to the bottom of the pan, simply attach a pump to the threaded portion or hose clamp directly to the tube itself

    weird fuel issue

    you have filters on fuel pumps, spin on water sep filters, you have a filter at the carb inlet why in the world put one inside the draw tube on the tank.

    Needed fuel from boat, piece of hose fell in tank.

    you sure your in NJ, gas is not a problem? You should have used the feed tube not the fill

    weird fuel issue

    Should you ever have a stalling issue after cruising at moderate power and have exausted all the normal possibilities , filters, checking tank, suctioning tank for floating objects, opening fill cap, checking vent fitting, drawing out fuel and blowing air in and have it behave normally on a test tank but not the boat tank. then this is for you. To test if this is your problem try inserting a flexible wire, weed wacker cord, thin flexible cable, etc into the 90 deg fitting, If it only goes in about 4 inches and stops, carefully remove the tank feed fitting . Support the 90deg fitting in a vise and CAREFULLY unscrew the tube. Inside you just might find this [ATTACH=full]73795[/ATTACHEdit]

    If you used a good quality wrench and it didnt budge, then take a hot torch where the O ring is and heat it , then wrench it
