Re: 50 HP 2-stroke

Is the fuel in an onboard tank or a portable? If there is good spark, fuel and compression... I'd be looking closely at that fuel. I've seen fuel come out of ATVs and snowmobiles that wouldn't burn when poured on the door and a lighter held to it. Sent from my CLT-L04 using Tapatalk Portable tank

Removed carb bowls, plenty of fuel getting to the carbs. Carbs were rebuilt 2 months ago. Gas is only a couple of months old...

50 HP 2-stroke

I have a 1985 Mercury 50 hp 2-stroke that will not start. I have replaced the stator, impeller, spark plugs, all fuel lines, fuel filter, and the carbs/fuel pump was rebuilt. The motor started and ran good in the driveway. Took it to the lake, started off the trailer. Went fishing and moved 3 times....

1985 Bass Tracker refurb

Boat is done!! All that's left is the motor work. Cranked it today but it's not pumping water. It worked when I took it off the boat a year ago. Will probably have to change the impeller and rebuild the carbs. Just glad to be done with the boat and trailer.

Waterlogged foam - welded boat

I used pink sheets from Home Depot. I used 2" thick for most of it, some 1" as I got close to the top.

Waterlogged foam - welded boat

I cut access panels on each side in my tracker. The foam was soaked with water and gas. I put in new foam and used angled aluminum for structure and riveted the cut out panels back in place.I also left space between the bottom of the boat and the foam to keep it dry in the future.

Mine will do a hair over 30 with a 60.

Are you going to run the motor that it came with?
That's the plan right now. It came with a 50 HP Mercury.

1985 Bass Tracker refurb

All carpet installed on bunks and fender covers. Installed new hubs, that was an adventure. I bought hub kits from Northern Tool rather than buy the individual parts to rebuild my hubs, thought it would be easier. How wrong I was. The kits I bought were the only two they had that fit my axle. I shou...

1985 Bass Tracker refurb

Made a little progress today. Cut bunks, drilled holes and attached carriage bolts. Will remove and cover with carpet tomorrow. Started running conduit for wiring. Hopefully I will get the hubs and bearings installed tomorrow. How do you like my trailer supports? Buckets from the big 3, Home Depot, ...

Disassembled the axle, hubs, leaf springs today. Bearings are totally shot. Stripped the paint from the axle and put two coats of primer on it.
