So Sunday morning I get up and moving around, I always got out behind the house to open up the truck and check on the boat, friggin motor was trimmed up and the pump was running.

I mess around with the switches on the throttle control and the motor and finally get it to stop and lower the motor. The pump motor was all hot and sounded like the trim fluid was all foamed up inside the pump.

I looked around and check the switches and wiring and everything looked fine and it was working fine, so now I know I had a gremlin in the boat now. http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys/cry.gif

So it was fine the rest of the day, took the boat out Sunday night, no problems. http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys/think.gif

When I came back home I put a baggy over the throttle control, thinking moisture was getting into the switch from frost and dew. I had this problem before but only after a monsoon of a rain storm, never in these conditions. So I knew something was still wrong, just not where to find it.

So Monday night I get done work and go hook up the boat and the motor is all the way up again, the pump wasn't running at that point.

I was like, wtf? So I hit the switch on the motor to lower it and it goes down, but it won't go up.

I look closely at the switch and there is water in it around the sides of it after even sitting in the yard for 24 hours, so it must be that switch that was acting up and I unplugged it and just rolling with the throttle switch until I get a new one for the motor.

Do you know how much a propshaft is... And how big of a bitch they are to put in?? ... You would be better off find a lower unit....

How bad is it bent? ... Can you feel the vibrations in the engine

I had one apart before, it aint that big of a deal. I am surprised you would tell me that, after working on car and truck engines, which are way more complicated and difficult. http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys/think.gif

Whats a shaft go for? I never really shopped one. Cheaper than a lower unit I bet. I'd say it's got about a 1/8" wobble at most. Enough to see it, and slightly feel it.
