Just realized Ive been posting my mechanical updates here so I'll stay with the trend. 2 issues I had was water in the out drive and random starting. Did shift shaft seal and thought I licked it but no, water still getting in. Decided to replace all the plug O rings, that was it!

Random no start: We would literally be on the water all day, get home to run water through her to flush and wouldnt start. 3 times it happened! First 2 times she would start a day later, last week, nada.. pulled ignition, fine, pulled safety, cut wires to override, fine then decided to pull the fuse/relay cover on top of the engine. Pulled and ohm'd all fuses, all good. For shits and grins I started pulling the relays and then tried to fire it, nothing. Got to the biggest relay, turns out its the starter relay, OVERLOADED with dielectric grease! I mean big time. Wiped some off, reinserted, damn if she didnt fire right up! Lesson.. too much of something isnt always a good thing. :roll:

Got the ole girl out yesterday and visited and island in the Potomac. She ran great but still has a random starting issue which Ive traced back to the starter relay. Have to wiggle it so Im dreading that it may be the panel when the relay seats. Ordered a new relay, we'll see if that helps.
