I have a Yamaha 15 horsepower outboard
. The mounting screws to attach the outboard
to the transom of my dingy have been getting harder and harder to turn. I've tried in the past wd40 and coating the screws with Lana coat but after returning to the boat
having been in storage on the hard
and storing the outboard below decks and out of the weather
the mounting screws are seized and I can't seem to free them.
Does anyone else have this problem with their Yanmar
outboards? Any idea what I can do to free it? And can they be drilled out and replaced? How do I keep this from happening in the future?
