Outboard Mechanic?

5 posts in this topic

Anyone know a good mechanic that can replace my lower unit seals? I'm getting water in the lower unit and service manual says to replace the oil seals, I'm looking for good, honest and reasonable pricing. The motor is a 2001 Yamaha 80hp 4-stroke.

Thanks

Here's my follow up:

I've had the motor for a year and it runs great but about 3 weeks ago I hit something submerged and pushed the whole motor out of the water and stay up, after doing an inspection there was no visible damage so I put back in water and started it. The water pump was still pumping good water so I just let it run for a bit to make sure everything was ok. I went to go put in gear and it wouldn't budge. Long story short I took it to the dealer to get looked at and at the same time called insurance company because I hit something submerged so it should be covered. The dealer tore it apart and found out that all the gears in it are totally shot. Well because there is NO visible damage to the lower unit the insurance department denied my claim saying damage do to pinion gear failure. If I hit something that made the motor come out of the water (2 witnesses) would that break the pinion gear which in turn would totally ruin the all the gears and at the same time not leave a mark on it?

Sounds like you gotta jump through some hoops and lean on the insurance company...

    • This is great... I barely finished my '17 Yetti and now its already outdated.
    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )
