I currently have 1985 (I think) evinrude
long shaft 2 stroke
is running good most of the time. Sometimes dies on me when throteling down and it's hard to start sometimes right after. Happened few times already. Kind of scary when i'm coming into the marina.
I had it serviced and still the same thing. now also i'm getting quite a bit of sludge coming out of little hole at the bottom of the shaft. I believe they are to relieve back pressure - they seem to go just right through.
I'm considering picking up another outboard
. I have my eye set on 2005 honda
9.9 4 stroke
extra long shaft with electric
start and cockpit
control. It's going for $2000. what's your take on those motors? any good? What's the weight of those motors - i can't find specs for them.
i'm sort of on the fance... put some money
into mine old motor
or invest in the newer honda
... ahhhhhhhh... decisions. :-)
