      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Has anybody out there had trouble splitting the power unit from the top of the leg and tray on a 4 HP 2 stoke outboard ? I have followed the manual to the letter and belted it with a hammer amongst other things and it will not split. How did you cure this problem, if you've encountered it. ??

Did that on such a one from early 1980-ies. There are some screws - if you have the manual then you have removed all (?). and then the gear handle. Actually, I had no problems at all with that part - but the lower part, the gearbox, that was not nice. 

When re-assembling and running it I realised that it is much more quiet now, maybe I had a leak in the exhaust part. There is a gasket at the bottom, it is tempting to use some kind of liquid gasket on that part which also works fine as a glue. Suggest some (careful) heat.
