Engine Repower

Recommended Posts

when a outboard is repowered do you have to change steering cable too or is it just the control box and cables. going from 40hp johnson to 70 hp yamaha if that helps

As long as the cable is still in good working order you can use the same one. The only thing that may be different is the drag link. As long as that matches up, you are fine.

Jumping from 40 to 70? Is the boat rated for a 70? Just thinking out loud here.

you should be ok, but you might have to change it being your changing brands. Forsure your going to have to change cable and control box!.......also, dont forget about gauges, if you have them!

Thanks guys the boat is actually rated for a 75hp (boat was under powered) motor comes with gauges so I will be fine there too. I was wondering if I will need different drag link. How do they sell them by brand or what

Your new motor should come with a drag link, and, as boatfixer said, if your cable is good yet you should be able to keep the same steering cable.

    • Spring only for me, when Orioles first return. Mine never get hit much. 
    • Not sure if somebody put a lot of time in to make this or if it was something Arctic Cat made. I could see someone pulling this around Hay Days.Thought it was just to cool to pass up. 
    • Whatever trades they might make won’t be to make a run. It’s going to be to rebuild. I guess there’s still some interest in Dozier from a couple teams, but otherwise, we don’t have much trade value in anyone. I’m just still hoping we finish .500.
    • The popular speculation is that the lakers are taking this season “off”, and waiting until next year to sign a big name or 2, one of which could be Butler. Personally, I don’t think there’s any chance Butler re signs with the wolves (he already turned down the first offer), as long as Wiggins remains on the team! And at this point, Wiggins is untradable. 
    • do agree, like your thoughts...
    • Yeah, none of the recipes say to pre-cook the potatoes but I think I might do it next time or else just open the packets and throw the shrimp in at the end. I was surprised though that the shrimp was good and didn't seem too over cooked. I think the key is to make sure to use raw shrimp not pre-cooked.
    • A lot of talk about a lot of nothing...until it is actually something! 🤔😏  As long as Thibs is here I believe that Jimmy has  chance to stay.  If Jimmy were to leave I would be surprised if he stayed in the west but if he did matching him up with LAbron would be a tough duo to build around.
    • A lot of good looking recipes on Old Bay's s i t e : Old Bay Recipes
    • I too am going to try that, done it with burger before.  I think with shrimp I'd maybe pre-cook the taters some, half way??  then cut foil cause shrimp cook super fast!!  thanks for the idea!!   and old bay is a must on that!!!
    • Thanks big d, I wanna give it a shot as well!!
