    OK First click is "ignition on, gauges power up , and hard wired alarms using a ground will sound. eg: no oil pressure with key on Second position is "start" to crank the motor.When released , it go into "ign on, motor running"

    Overheating, losing coolant.

    cant go wrong with new bolts, if torque-to-yeild use that or the standard torque values and pattern for an older 5.7 and use sealant on the bolt threads

    Steering Helm Play Measurement

    Does the steering arm on the drive move before the drive. in other words can you rock the drive from side to side while someone holds the wheel steady. With the quick connect installed there is no excess play in the helm connection
  9. Mercruiser is saving $.03 cents by leaving it out All of the transom assemblies missing it should have it added . the seal starts leaking, then the pin starts to rust up and make the seal erode a bit more until you have a good drip coming in the boat.Ever wonder why the older housingd don`t have this problem? Because they have the grease fittings. I have drilled out 2 Bravo transoms for the hinge pin grease fitting and numerous Alpha GEN II housings. It`s a simple process IF you are careful with the drill. If you have the pin and steering yoke removed it`s even easier
  10. while you at it install that missing grease fitting to gease the steering pin and seal

    If it is under /behind the mount you need to: Shift into For and remove the drive Properly support and raise the motor Remove the front mount by removing the lags/bolts and then the 3 bolts in the block Using the correct size socket , coat the plug with sealant and drive it in flush Check engine coupler alignment after installing the mounts

    Rusted Freeze plug! Need Help!

    If it rusted out you have auto parts in there , there just plain steel. SS or brass dont rust away. If it is a auto block you might consider pulling the motor to replace the steel ones with brass or SS ones

    I found stuff in my bilge that I don't recognize...

    I see a broken shift cable sleeve, a broken SS bolt most likely a 1/4 x 20 bolt or stud, the V shaft is the spring from the shift interupter plate and some broken hose clamps

    Alpha One Gen 2 Gear Oil in Bilge

    A Fool and His Money are easily parted it`s a $14 dollar seal and maybe 2-3 hours start to finish? When was it off for service last? And they last a lot longer when serviced, 2000 hours are nothing Another thought I had was letting the gear oil holding tank remain nearly empty so to limit how much gear oil that automatically feeds in the outdrive. Will last about 3 minutes at cruise without oil
