Re: fixing two Century (or at least one)

1) first problem, it seems the drive shaft won't separate from the gearbox, is there a trick to separate them ? I use some heat from a propane torch to warm up where the square tube meets the gearbox, then get a bit of 8mm (5/16") round bar (stainless if you have it) about 50mm longer than the driv...

Re: It won’t start! EFNR44B7

Pull the plug and squirt some petrol in the cylinder. That will give you the petrol where it needs to be for ignition, it will be too rich initially to start but will soon lean out enough to give you a pop after a few pulls. Crankcase issues are very low on my list of things to look for, flood the c...

Re: It won’t start! EFNR44B7

I hope I'm not stating the obvious here, but have you tried squirting a shot of fresh fuel straight into the air intake, to see if it will fire? Cheers, Mark If they have a spark at the correct time and compression they will run on WD40, just give it a squirt down its intake and it will run. https:...

Have you got the bit not bolted to the boat?

I would use a Forty Plus, featherweight could be long enough if calm.

Re: 170 conversion long to standard shaft

I just cut the same amount off everything, only issue is if drive tube has a reduced diameter where it goes into gearbox, cant remember on 170.

Did wonder if drive shaft was hardened, you could always case harden it, but I did not bother.
