Thanks so much Rin Tin Tin. These guys don't ever take me seriously. I know there is a motor in there somewhere and I can't wait to wrench on it!





Yep, I thought you were winding Buzzerbaits up implying the Evinrude was so reliable you didn't ever work on it and thusly didn't know how to take the cover off or even open it up.

I was just kidding. The motor is sitting on my living room floor awaiting a new engine stand to be built Arrowhead. Everything about it looks like the ten hours of use I was told it has. It has marks from being moved around over the years. I bought if from a television production company that does the TV show 'Ozark'.

Maybe if you can't get the cover off it might be a good idea if you don't wrench on it :hand:

it could be the same Evinrude. the fella I bought it from did say the fella he bought it from was suffering from rope Burns. Burn. Could just be a coincidence though.
