I am not scared to get in there and work on it I would just rather not screw anything up that doesn’t need it if that makes any sense. If I can ask some questions here and learn a bit before diving into a particular portion of the motor I will to try to help myself not break anything accidentally. I have learned so much on this site over the past few years it is amazing. I did go over a browse through a few old threads on the old wizard site as well.
This motor is really in great shape and there was no need for me to get as far into this motor as I have already gotten, I just am a curious mind and want to see how things work. Plus it keeps me out of my wife’s hair 😀 . The inside of the crankcase on this motor is absolutely spotless, it has good compression, and none of the rings appear to be stuck so I would rather not get in there on this one. I’ll save that for another motor down the road that is either stuck or has low compression numbers.
In all honesty I could have just changed one point, cleaned the tank, and serviced the lower unit and this one would have been fine but it gives me something to wrench on!
Thank you for sharing your knowledge of these old mercs they are nothing like the new ones hanging on the back of my boat.
