The "resin" from under the stator is the most concerning thing. I would pop off the flywheel and see if you can identify exactly where it's coming from. It's highly likely this is a leaky seal from top of the crankshaft. Fairly easy repair to pop the seal out once the flywheel is off. Check to see i...
I've had it happen before. As long as your powerhead didn't overheat due to lack of water, there should be no long term effect. I would make sure the drain hole in the front of the lower unit is clear. That gunk should not have built up like it did if that drain was working properly. Not a problem d...

As a general rule, it's not great to run multi-carb motors dry. The fuel will run dry in the top carb first and you'll be running the top cylinder without oil for however long it takes for the lower carb to run dry. If I"m concerned about leaving the motor for a while, I'll pull the drain plug on th...

I'm looking to clear some space in my garage, so I'm giving away one of my motor stands. This one can store two motors up to 20" shaft length. I've had two 50 hp's on it at once with no issues. It's very sturdy, and has two layers of 3/4 aroco plywood to mount the motors on. The side gussets are 3/4...
When you replaced the head, did you make sure that the plug wires went to the correct plug? #1 to the top plug? Get a spray bottle and put a bit of mixed fuel in it. Give the carb throat a couple of sprays and then pull it over to see if it kicks. 90 lbs is a bit on the low side for those motors, th...
One other thing to check is to make sure your trailer is level when it is hooked up to your vehicle. If the hitch ball is too high, it throws more load on the rear axle, and could cause excessive load and wear.

It got sold on Craigslist. Thanks!
I've made a couple of versions of these pallet racks. I've got two that will hold two motors each, and this one that can hold up to four 70hp's. I move them around with a pallet jack, or our tractor if i need to move them out to the shed in the winter. 20151114_095635.jpg 20151114_095649.jpg 2015111...
I agree with what you're seeing. The 2 part foam supports the entire rear deck. When I did my rebuild, I found that the only water logged foam was in the bottom inch or two. So I left 90% of the foam in the panels in place and cut out the bottom 2 inches. then I slid 2" foam panels underneath to rep...

You can try using a flap disc, but you find it quickly loads up, get a couple of them. I ended up using a cupped wire brush on my angle grinder for most of the heavy glue on my build. Get a good full face shield and a set of heavy gloves. It's not an easy job, but worth it in the end.
Check the fuse on the wiring harness first. Small, red rubber fuse holder usually not too far from the big red connector. Hopefully that blew before any other electronics did. if it was just arcing the solenoid, I think you have a good chance of it being the fuse. Also make sure the little guy didn'...
