  1. Caught a few with those horrible bloody things mainly leather jackets couldn't eat them after seeing that yuck
  2. Ok so after a brain fart got new head gasket. There was some pitting on the head from saltwater so used head from old spare motor went to do that first time and tried to put thermostat housing on different from newer motor place I got gasket had older thermostat cover all good.went out today from parsley bay to target blue spots wind was terrible nothing like report crap fishing but motor run great I have a twin setup and motor I bought new never missed a beat other motor was a bargain about 5 years ago so do expect some problems
  3. YeahSo being out of work tried to use gasket off a spare motor and save some coin guess what big improvement but still small amount of steam coming out.have ordered new gasket and will do it right this time i know I'm a dickhead☺
  4. Had my by 2500 start to play up pulled side cover off and broken inside will not pay $200 for a small reel again
  5. Hi don't know much about Parsons but new motor compared to unknown used I'd look at new I think people get to hung up on brands .parson has been around for years now don't seem to be any major problems also being 2 stroke easy to work on

Hi mechanic checked compression a few months ago all good as it's a twin setup changed coil cod unit over no difference tried again yesterday cleaned all terminals noticed battery connection to motor loose don't think that would make a difference but seems a bit better maybe the terminals now just need to get on the water to test but who knows when that can happen cheers
