Is it easy enough for an average tinkerer to fix?? Please help this pakage is very cheap and I am wondering if its because motor is going to cost an arm and a leg to fix!!! Thanks fishtrap3

Sounds like a clutch dog problem to me, no biggie tho, pretty common. Its the parts in the lower unit that hold it from coming out of gear. Cost if you do it yourself should be well under 100 dollars, while you have it apart put in a new water pump and seals in the lower unit, on a scale from one to ten I would give this fix a rating of 5 on difficulty, just remember how it came apart... Good luck! Paul

Fishtrap, Twin Cities Outboard in Shakopee carries part from early 1900s to today. I fix up some older motors as hobby and I never had a problem finding a part and they give you many hints and tips. Recently I have a 1947 3.5 Johnson I had to replace water pump and they show me how to fix a problem with the impeller mfg. (you have to sand it slightly since it's a little high for housing). I would have never known it, mounted pump and broke new impeller right away.

The fix is a easy one to do, if it is the dog & shoe?

If the rig is set on a cable shift check to see if it is adjusted properly first. Some cable adjustments will move and give the appearance that the shifting is messed up, might not be at all? I have a older 25 Evenrude like that and it pulled this trick on me.

Another thing to check is the play in and out on the prop, see if the pin is gone or half sheared, this will produce the effect that the lower unit is not working properly too.

Maybe it is the dog & shoe, maybe not, but take a peak at this stuff first.

    • I wouldn't be surprised to see Fletch pull something during the "break". That would give that person time to come in and get acclimated to the surroundings. I am sure the players will be having some "skates" along the way, but no organized team activities. They cannot even practice until after 5:00 the day before their first game back! That is why the results are so poor coming out. Its one thing to skate, scrimmage-like, but practice is a completely different animal and I am pretty sure the players are not going to voluntarily "bag skate". I think this is a big night tonight. Go into the break on a high note. Wouldn't be shocked if Kuemper started, but I would expect Dubnyk.  
    •   You've heard of the Whiskey Rebellion, I assume.   One of the first examples of federalism.   The Washington administration's suppression of the Whiskey Rebellion met with widespread popular approval.[112] The episode demonstrated that the new national government had the willingness and ability to suppress violent resistance to its laws. It was, therefore, viewed by the Washington administration as a success, a view that has generally been endorsed by historians.[113] The Washington administration and its supporters usually did not mention, however, that the whiskey excise remained difficult to collect, and that many westerners continued to refuse to pay the tax.[33] The events contributed to the formation of political parties in the United States, a process already underway.[114] The whiskey tax was repealed after Thomas Jefferson's Republican Party came to power in 1801, which opposed the Federalist Party of Hamilton and Washington.[115]
    •   Danged tootin' it was, Del-o-rama!    Sure, I no longer drink, and they finally change the law....thought it woulda been 20 years ago. That was one of the most asinine ones we've had yet. 
    •   I am concerned about the $$$. Near $20 trillion in debt and rising along with deficits predicted to rise and more and more people becoming dependent on some kind of government assistance makes me so. I'm as fiscal hawkish as you can get because math always wins,eventually, over good intentions, religious beliefs, and emotionalism. It's one of the main reasons I didn't vote for Trump. I am waiting to see his first budget proposal if he can eventually get around to it between his Tweeting and whining. If he eventually does make real budget cuts and proves me wrong, he'll get my vote in 2020 but time will tell. Both the welfare and warfare state will need slashing   Someone mention further increase in automation. It will be interesting to see how that effects these programs and government spending over time. Taxing robots probably won't work but they will mean fewer workers will be needed, especially low and mid skilled workers, to do the same job.
    • Sweet!  Ill be posting a report from our 3.5 day trip over the weekend.  In the Canada section.    Question for you.....we saw a Cadillac Escalade with tracks and a big walleye decal on it.....was that the Blackwater Cats guys?
    •   So the pee pee video stuff will or won't come out...?
    • Just blows my mind to be honest why we allow such a good state to be so far behind in regards to laws. Why we can't use more than one rod in summer is crazy..
    • Jim, I have an Ion and love it but given the choice today I can understand your hesitation in the decision. I'm not sure I wouldn't lean toward the Fuel and KDrill. Reverse is a must so Strikemaster would be out for sure. Reverse isn't the end all for cleaning slush, I still use a slush copter, but it does allow you to clear the slush on the drill and not have to bring it all up into the house. Either way you'll have a great combination. The Fuel drill is a nice thing to have around, it's a drop dead brute, unlike anything else out there!
