It all depends on how corroded the bolts are. Going into an old saltwater outboard can be very trying. I went into a Merc 20 hp with the driveshaft stuck in the powerhead. Have you tried taking the lower unit off yet? Head bolts and exhaust side bolts would most likely be very stubborn. It really depends on the history of the motor. Working on outboards takes alot of patience and pentrating oil

In that case you'll be up against it. Removing the powerhead is the easiest bit. You will have to thoroughly clean the powerhead, remove the flywheel and the ancillary equipment, split the crankcase, undo the bigend caps, recover ALL the needle rollers, remove the main bearing caps, split the bearings and again recover ALL of the rollers, lift out the crank, pull the piston, do the necessary repair, clean everything thoroughly to remove debris, refit the piston and reverse fit everything else, torquing all the fasteners correctly, and then refit the powerhead.

If you are a practical person, working carefully and methodically you'll be fine but if you have a problem with this type of work ......well, it's your call.

Since you're in South Wales, why don't you give Codders a call. He's an expert on everything. He'll have it done in a morning. He can collect any spares you need in his new Disco and they'll get a nice gentle rid because he wont be using his brakes cos it's snowing.

I know but I just couldn't help myself.

It's more a bit of Cod winding really. Don't tell him, but I do have a bit of respect for him. He rarely blows a fuse and that could be just what you need in a difficult situation.

Jonny

I want to be the PC Police. Great chance to wind people up in the name of justice.

Anyway, you don't qualify, I was standing the other side of the fence at the boat yard the other day with Stuart when you fired up Leviathon. Scared the crap out of me!
