Replacement Outboard Motor

Recommended Posts

There's only 4 moving parts in a two stroke engine and they're pretty simple to strip down. Unless they've put a con-rod through the casing I don't see how it could be a write off.

Unless you mean the drive train side of things...no idea there I'm afraid.

Outbards are expensive, as are most things to do with boats.

My advice (if the protagonists are mechanically minded) would be to get a manual, strip it down and rebuild it with parts as necessary.

iboats.com has lots of advice, parts and manuals.

It's a Yamaha auto loop 50 HP 2 stroke engine.

It's just clicked: You mean auto lube. (As in, not pre-mix). They probably ran it out of two stroke oil.

I wondered what 'auto loop' meant ...

I think I understand what you are driving at, but can you explain exactly what you mean, so that at least I understand it?

Most two stroke engines require you mix the oil and petrol together before putting it in the tank. Auto lube has two seperate tanks and an injection system. It's much tidier, reliable and accurate, but does mean checking the level of two stroke oil.

Run it without any oil and it will go like stink...until it seizes up.
