Yamaha 55hp (No 2)

Bought this a fee months ago and began to work on it today and even though its about 1981, it's like new. Pity someone took a hammer to the leg, got another one so watch this space.

If you need any parts just shout, I'm breaking one of these at the minute due to knackered bushes.

I could do with one of these, I'm trying to match the decals. A short loom would be handy as the one on the engines broken, there's one on e bay but you can pm me with price. Does yours have the temp sensor & retainer??

Alan, do you mean broken shock mounts?? I have another leg & bracket coming, so on second thoughts, there may be enough here to save your one, if you'd like to keep it running.

Yep, in your fourth picture, it's the bushing in the alloy casing, completely shot. It was alright until I dropped the gearbox off, it was the driveshaft that was keeping everything tight.

If you're not in a hurry, I'm back at work next week and will be able to see what I have got, if you want to keep yours running or still want to break, let me know.

I would actually like to keep it going as I've got a mariner 60 two pot (same engine) for spares, unfortunately the legs are different. I've just nipped out to check whether it has the temp sensor but it doesn't.

I'm in no rush, it was just a winter project that never made it!

Ok, I will PM, when I make some progress. If you could photo the different legs, so I can see the difference.
