Luke, I think you're going to need a whole powerhead.

I think what Nos is hinting at is that yours is now spares! It's not an old engine but is going to be very costly to repair but probably has some decent bits ! For a few hundred pounds ( possibly) more than rebuilding that one you could have a fresh engine.

I don't think it'll be many more hundreds of pounds-if anything.

It might even be cheaper to sell the cooked outboard on ebay as spares/repair and get another motor.

We're on the same page ! When Pennine destroyed my Mariner 115 in their workshop & charged me £470 for the privilege I soon realised repairs were going to be more than another engine !!
There doesn't seem to be a cheap source of spares for powerhead parts like pistons etc this side of the pond and the price generally of second hand engines can be reasonable compared to new IF it's been well maintained. They're a horrendous price new for hobby users!

If you don't have near that, you're not going to have a working engine anyway.

By the time you pay for:-
2 pistons,
2 sets of rings
2 cylinder rebores
Various New bearings and seals (you've cooked it-don't expect the bearings to have survived)
Plugs
Impeller and possibly a new housing
A full gasket set
Probably 6 hours labour (though it could be significantly more) to do it all,

You're not going to have much of that £1000 left that you haven't got.

If you don't replace all of the parts mentioned then dont rebuild it.

Take what the lads are saying, your engine is now as good as scrap I'm afraid.

Time to start again.

Experience can be a cruel teacher ! The bit I don't get is I'm sure that you'd had it fitted with a new impeller at a shop before you overheated it ?

They'd be my first place to visit !!! From what I've seen on my own engines there's an impellor that locates on a shaft with a collar that ensures it rotates when the engines running & a thermostat that restricts the flow until it hits temperature then opens to allow a full flow & that's it. If the legs in water & unless there's a blockage it works.
There's some very experienced blokes on here that have loads of knowledge who will probably put me right !

Luke I listed the parts you were probably lookin at in a previous thread. Stick your engine you've cooked on ebay saying its a non runner it should do £300/£400 then put a few hundred quid to it and your back on the water....unless your rebuilding the engine yourself you won't have a clue what quality of rebuild your goin to get...

Luke, how deep in the bucket were you running the motor? How far up did the water come?
