I’m hoping to get the existing motor running reliably, but not sure how much that’s going to take. My Mercury guys are dropping by this evening and will take a look.

how'd it go :?:

We got it fired up. Aimed that 1000 CCs of free flowing two stroke goodness pointed at our neighbor who revs the crap out of his open piped Harley all the time. It felt a bit cathartic!

We compression tested it too, and while not new, all three cylinders were in spec. Changed the lower unit oil, and now we just need to get the steering cable replaced and I can take it for a test run. I’ve been spraying the cable ends with PB Blaster daily as it is still seized.
