Sheared Screw

Soooo, how did it go? I told myself I was going to follow up with a post but my mind wandered to other projects. Man that little screw was committed to staying put. I tried to get it out using a screw extractor kit without luck. Then I started drilling. She never did let go and I ended up drilling ...

Trailer Hub Washer

Replacing my trailer hubs with a CE Smith hub kit. Wasted $30 by ordering the wrong size, now the correct size still isn’t working. Figured out I’m missing the washer that goes in between the castle but and the outer bearing, so the outer bearing is falling out of the hub a little bit. Any resident ...

Sheared Screw

Use MAPP gas over propane to do the heating. You will destroy the paint around there though. If you want to retain the original threads you can try heat and an extractor of some kind but you may just end up drilling and re-tapping that hole to remove the remains of the screw. Use a high quality dri...

Sheared Screw

Should have clarified, I know welding is the best option but unfortunately I don’t have a torch or know anyone that does.

Sheared Screw

Well I’m really in a pickle here. I was trying to get this screw out on the steering cable bracket to replace a spring lock on the side of my motor and apparently didn’t know my own strength. The screw sheared off making it flush with the motor. Any tips for removing a sheered screw? Thought of pick...

Sound dampening under motor cowling

I think that motor exhausts out the back above the water doesn't it? They went to through hub shortly after I believe. The exhaust location makes a difference in the noise. I had a 76 20 hp. Same motor, weighed 98lbs. Awesome motors. Sent from my CLT-L04 using Tapatalk Yes, it does exhaust out the ...

Sound dampening under motor cowling

It's been on for 2 or 3 seasons so far, and it really made a difference in my late 80's 2 stroke. I may have linked the wrong foam, this is what I bought based on my order history: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001GAD5G4/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 The OEM foams only hold up for...

I used an adhesive backed neoprene rubber sheet material, which seemed (as best I could tell) to be what was used on the inside of whichever model newer cowl I looked under for ideas... https://www.amazon.com/Neoprene-Sponge-Rubber-Sheets-Various/dp/B074HQ9TBP/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=neoprene+rubber+sh...

Trouble with remote controls on 1978 Johnson

Two posts in two days, can you tell my mind is on getting the boat ready for spring??? I've got a 1978 Johnson 35 hp with remote controls. My controls setup is identical to the one at this link: https://www.marineengine.com/parts/johnson-evinrude-accessories/index.php?year=1978&model=Remote+Control+...

Thanks Dale. Lead-lined being Noico/Dynamat type of stuff? Or is that something different?

That being said, I just found this on Amazon that may do the trick. 10 square feet may be all I need.

Sound dampening under motor cowling

I really do not think the undercoating idea would do you much good compared to the dedicated sound deadening material. The guy that did that is likely to tell folks it did a great job whether it really did or not. A sheet of 1/2" foam, spray adhesive and some silver tape wouldn't kill anyone's budg...
