On the studs on the bottom be sure to soak them with a good penitrating oil over night. Then on the removal if you feel like they are binding work them back and forth. They may break but you should get new studs with the new one. On the head side just be carefull, if you break a bolt off in the head you have real problems then. Not really complex just use your head and don't be to forcefull.
Good Luck

put your boat in reverse out of the water and see if you can spin the prop buy hand it should be very hard to turn if you can spin the prop you have a spun hub in the prop if you have a two part prop then you can get just the hub but if it is fixed then u will need to buy a new prop they run between 109.00-145.00 for a aluminum anthor check if thats not it make sure the prop speeds up when u rev the boat out of the water it should rev with the engine if not you may have a shifter cable problem the boat may seem to be going into reverse but it may not be locking in the lower unit let me knows what happens and well get it figured out

SOURCE: We have a brand new Bayliner 210. Our boat battery

Yes, the GPS will consume a slight amount of power even when powered off. Most people call this "pulse-power" in the electrical industry. Also, as an example at home, if you have a cell-phone charger plugged into the wall, but do Not have the cell-phone plugged-in and charging - the power adapter still drains a very small amount of power and does in-fact use electricity just because it is plugged-in. On a 21-foot Bayliner, I recommend installing a Battery-Saver at the point of the battery, which automatically cuts all power to the battery when it reaches a certain low-level. Then when you need to start the boat - you press one button on the Battery Saver - and it gives you enough power to start the boat and enjoy your water experience. I also might recommend swinging by an auto-shop that has a rolling-battery-tester just to be sure you battery is still good. Even a brand new battery can be defective at day-one or months later. Have a qualified person test the battery to see if it is holding a charge correctly (while the GPS is ON and while it is Off.) The results will tell you the true story.

Testimonial: "Thank you that was very helpful! We also discovered the off switch on this unit is also a dimmer switch. We could not see in daylight it was still on."

Omc I/O, V8 engine overheating, garden hose supplying water, no water coming out the exaust.

Check if the water is flowing to and thru the engine. disconnect the hoses between thermostat house ( upper front of the engine ) and the exhaust manifolds.
If you have water there, then replace both exhaust manifoldes AND risers...

How do you remove a gas tank from a Bayliner indoor/outdoor boat

I did not know Byliner made indoor boats. If you are referring to an I/O engine boat, it is usually under the floor, along side the engine, etc. Screws and cutting sealant is usually involved. It can be a real bear. Ask a Pro.

I have a 2006 20' boat with a 4.3L Vortex engine. The started needed to replaced and after further inspection the starter looked rusty. Removed spark plugs on left side of engine and rusty water came out...

he bore on that side will be rusty so the engine has limited life
the water could be from a cracked head or head gasket problem
if the engine is at water line in the boat
, if there is no exhaust flaps at the rear of the boat , then on shutting down the engine water could have been sucked back up the exhaust on that side into the engine
( cooling manifold creates a vacuum which will suck in the water

Celica is pouring water out behind the exhaust manifold. To the right of oil filter. Looks like there are 2 metal lines from water pump run across motor but can't see where they go. Any help., ,

They go to the passenger compartment heater. Pair of pipes is partially made up of metal pipe followed by a rubber hose. Look carefully at the metal pipes for any pin holes created by rust and corrosion or re-tighten the rubber hose clamps.

On my 05 Chevy Equinox there is antifreeze pouring out from the exhaust manifold bottom boat on the passenger side what could it be what could it be it be

If you have an internal leak in that location the coolant will be most likely escaping via a crack in the cylinder head. You should check more closely to see if it is actually escaping via the cylinder head gasket between the head and engine block.

Most likley you will now have coolant escaping into the lubrication system so check your engine oil for coolant contamination.

How do i winterize a 1990 4387 bayliner motor yacht

Yes--- it involves finding EVERY drain plug in the engine and exhaust system, running some preserver oil thru the engine JUST as it runs out of gas and mixing the right amount of gas preserver to last the winter. THEN there is the fresh water system which needs a non poisonous antifreeze and proper draining along with the black and grey water tanks being serviced. If it has a hot water system, it needs to be drained.

Then there is the trailer bearings which will be full of water if you are going to store on the hard they will be full of water from the retrieval (don't get be started on bearing buddies) No body knows how to use them properly.

Oh ya- you need to service the lower unit for leaks and new oil, and check the u-joint boot for water and bad U-joints and grease the intermediate bearing.

But don't forget the drain plug or all this work will be for nothing as you will find a boat full or rainwater and a bent trailer.

What engine should fit my 28´bayliner boat

Yes there is. Saw one at a boat show and I believe it was also Swedish. You may want to look for used replacements on the web. I do not know where you live, but there are boats on the Great lakes with low hours because of the short boating season. There are also victims of hurricanes with good engines down South.
