Serpentine Belt

Regular maintanence for all types of vechicels is the best policy, for large and small engine repair. Lower legs on outboards should also be changed every season and pre-checked through the boating season. Never let the sound of a serpentine belt fool ya.............Hope this helps. .

We have no power but battery appears full charge cannot raise/lower motor or start motor--any thoughts

Hi Jim:
I'm confused.
Raise or lower motor sounds like a boat outboard leg.
Cars and trucks section???????????
I'm guessing that you first need to confirm that the battery is fully charged.
Just an idea, but boats often have an isolation switch that has to be turned on before power is available to the engine. Follow the positive lead from the battery.
Please reply as a comment to this post so I can try to assist.

I have an inboard/outboard engine, thats a chevy...i need to change the starter

starter has 2 bolts on the bottom with some shims. There are a few wires one large and 2 small. They are labeled on the solenoid so can be transferred to the new starter. Remember to remove one battery cable.

how to fix a mg zr head gasket

the best solution is to fit a multi layer type gasket and change the oil rail also a kit is availiable through xparts it is a long lasting repair the old gasket is not good the main reason these gaskets fail is because the engine holds only a small amount of coolant to decrease warm up times to reduce emissions but when the thermostat opens the engine gets a large gush of icy cold water from the radiator the engine components ie cyl,head and cyl block move in relation to each other

1999 pontiac grand prix service engine light soon is on, what does it mean ?

The service engine soon light is an indicator /reminder for you to do some type of maintanence work on your vehicle, depending upon your mileage that you have accumulated on your car dictates the sort of maintanence needed on the car.
Can either be as simple as an oil change or as complicated as a major service/tuneup, oil change, transmission change, wheel alignment, brake inspect, tire rotation etc.
Once the work is performed the technician must turn off the light.
Reference the dealership or reliable repair shop for further information.

gear shifter for 40 h. p. mariner outboard

With your lower unit off have someone shift the engine into forward while watching the gear shift select shaft's rotation,let gearshift remain in forward,now place your lower unit in forward and reinstall. In the future just put engine in forward when installing a water pump as there won't be a need to move gearshift
