  1. Ok zoran definitely no citrus 😂 the mechanic said when I picked up the boat engine Its around a 1982 or 1983 build and there was a small plastic tube that attaches both ends of the gear selector ,it was missing he rigged up a quick repair but the actual part has to be order from Johnson in the US Can’t get one when he gets a price with postage he will let me know I will give him my visa number and it will get sent i told him if he does no good ,give Arizona outboards on the central coast a call and see what they have
  2. What about oranges I heard that fish won’t touch your bait if you have peeled an orange ?also Good news gear selector shaft came apart halfway down $50 to fix and I pick it up this afternoon and I still shiver at the mention of bananas on boats 😂
  3. It must be ingrained in me 😂 I had that bad in the gut feeling as soon as the wife pulled it out it didn’t faze the wife though
  4. Marine rescue were glad of the donation and now I am thinking of volunteering With them on my 4 week rostered off cycle
  5. I am hoping it is only minor the boat purred before that beautifully
  6. Ok boat in the water cruising around lake Mac find a spot to fish wife happy 😃 she wanted to fish another place pull in anchor start motor engaged forward nothing no movement motor revs but that’s it rang up mechanic propeller bushing gone rang marine rescue organised a tow they will be 30 minutes wife happy still 👌 she says let’s continue fishing while we wait and have lunch 🥳 then she pulls out lunch she had packed, and what comes out bananas 🤯 I turned cold with terror no wonder we broke down she had bananas on the boat

  9. I have replaced the fuel in my tank when I had issues with my engine see My previous post I have fresh 98 and oil mix in the tank and have about 10 to 15 litres of pre mixed fuel in a jerry can About 6 to 8 months old at present is it safe to use it in 5 litre blocks in between using new 98 mix eg over 6 months new 98 mix then 5 litre of old mix then new again or would you just tip it out ?
  10. Gave the ss minnow a kick start this morning new 98 fuel and oil new fuel line and bulb and a like new omc tank I scored on Facebook for $20 she took a bit to kick over but then she purred i let her run for 5 minutes with the water muffs on wife was cranky as she thought I would kill the motor never mind all set for a day on the water next week

Thanks anyway frank my wife found another near new omg tank on Facebook so we got it and delivered for $20 just a quick question for this i am getting new tubing,bulb and attachments at whitworths do I take the old bayonet fitting on the tank that’s screwed in off to clean or get some acetone on a brush to clean it all up (Presume auto vent is built in here)

  14. Hi all i have a stupid question getting boat stuff checked against the NSW requirements my savage ranger has marine ply panels on the floor of the boat ,screwed onto the ribs it’s basically a false floor does this mean I need a bildge pump? i looked at the requirements for enclosed water and It said A bilge pump is needed if Boat has closed under floor compartments I wasn’t sure if a false floor by definition is an under floor compartment thanks in advance greg
