If they aren't interested in assisting with the spares, eBay doesn't help and all else fails, try putting the part number in at:www.ajsutton.co.uk. Its a bike place but their computer doesn't seem to know that and shows what is available in the UK and/or Japan whether it is a bike or an o/b. I've got spares for a 25 yr old Yam from there when other sources have been unable to help.

The four bolts that you refer to going down from the tray are the tray mount bolts. Normal procedure is to remove the powerhead first then when it is clear undo the tray mounting bolts and remove the tray. As you have a replacement mid section you can just snap off the bolts if worst comes to worst.

I've gone from thinking about trying to fix it, to not even attempting it and splitting the engine, plus I'm still in the midst of completing a partial refund from the seller. Now I'm back to fixing it. I thanked Davie for taking the time to speak to me when I popped up last week, I could see how busy he was. I don't like to viewed as wasting peoples time and if it comes across like that I apologise.

I managed to split the head from the mid section today, 25 years of friction/heat made it almost fuse together. Put the new mid section on the transom arms and connected the power trim and all worked great. Got the powerhead on tonight and it's all lining up ok. Few more hours to go on it over the weekend.

It looks like you made a deal with the seller, and the engine is on the way to being good again, so it seems like it will end well.
