    Re: Hiccup in power delivery accelerating in 2nd. very troubling.

    Yamaha outboard engines are NOT available as a short block or whole engine either.

    However, if a marine engine blows up and is under warranty, (just learned this), Yamaha will remove a power head (engine part) from a new engine and ship it to a dealer..

    Motorcycles, Yamaha, if under warranty would supply all the parts, block, etc to the dealer for assembly.

    Re: Hiccup in power delivery accelerating in 2nd. very troubling.

    So the engine has some damage that wasn't mentioned in the ad and I'm trying to figure out what to do: Ship it back (expensive and I'm not sure how?) or put it in and deal with a probable oil leak and ask for a partial refund. The bottom bolt hole nubbin that the timing cover mounts to is completely shorn off.

    What would you do?

    I would replace the cover and remove/replace the shorn bolt.

    Have a picture?
    If you can't fix it by hitting it with a hammer, it's electrical!

    Re: Hiccup in power delivery accelerating in 2nd. very troubling.

    Cliff, the main block itself is cracked where the CCT cover bolts to, the front lower right as you look straight at it.

    It probably won't leak (it just see's slight oil splash, it's NOT like a crack in the oil pan) but I'd either have him knock off a large percentage of the purchase price, have him take it back(he won't want that).

    If he's a butt head, put a contest charge on your Credit Card or thru Pay Pal, he'll deal...

    Re: Hiccup in power delivery accelerating in 2nd. very troubling.

    I can't find a welder that will fix it, but I found one that said it should cost about $150, so I'm asking for that amount back.

    The engine swap is mostly done, actually. I still have to put back in the radiator, battery, airbox and fuel tank, but the hard part is done.

    The throttle bodies are a PITA.

    Well, it starts, so that's something.

    Missed the connector somewhere for the radiator fan and the brake light isn't working, so I need to tear it apart a bit again. It also leaks oil.
