    Cracked Bellow

    oil has never killed a bearing , lack of though is another story. With no history then I suggest a full transom package. all bellows, gimbal bearing , shift cable ,

Yes, follow the Red wire to the dash No, check the battery, and battery cables, battery cable conections Had a buddy have the same issue with a car, just dead, jumper did nothing, found out the neg battery cable corroded open in the middle of the cable . No visible exterior damage but open in the middle

    Fuel Pump Issues

    The motors I winterize with the gas mix directly into the fuel pumps has never failed me yet. The ones that dont ,usually have problems with moisture in the fuel including running E-10 fuel. The fuel injectors are also prone to water damage . With the sensors on the newer motor the "cocktail mix" is plugged into the fuel pump not sprayed down the throat
  11. What about raising the seat bases up from the floor ?
