  1. Cant even get to them to clean this site from spammers so just do the logo , we wont tell
  2. And the engine and sterndrive are? Get it up on land and post some pics
  3. Have you checked the fluid level , the steering is hyd assist. So low/no oil or cylinder itself is going out

    open the engine compartment , squeeze down there, using a 5/16ths socket loosen hose clamp and hose R/R thru hull
  5. Dealer has no clue, the Commander 4000 has only 1 neutral safety , the only way to have 2 is a twin engine setup
  6. Your low on gas? run on an outboard tank to verify the engine performance

    Water leak

    The way its designed is the cable is in the water but is threaded into the gimbal for the seal there, it slides thru the hose and comes up inside the boat thru that bellow at the end. Its purpose it to keep water from rushing up the hose into the boat. Like a mercruiser shift bellow in reverse. But like I said the hose replacement requires the engine out to get to the fitting . Did one , know all about that leaking hose and no matter what I tried I could not avccess it with the motor in place. You got the manual so your all set

    The person who injected the foam should be captured and have his hands cut off

    Simply amazing what some people can accomplish with no brains and not have a boat sink. The Homo Sapian is a amazing creature, sometimes stupid but still amazing.

    Water leak

    Typically the Cobra used a hose from the inside of the transom housing up and above the engine. The shift cable passes thru this. The shift cable screws into the gimbal giving a watertight seal to the shift cable area. If you found this filled with foam it was rigged by the PO .to stop water from entering . Motor needs to come out to replace this hose
