Jewell is right. If it is not running hot and have a good return your good. We used to put a small bead of sealer round the leg to satisfy people who flushed their engines on the trailer. It also lets us know if any body and been ontop of our repair.

How to Change the impeller on Suzuki 140 outboard motor

Suzukis are normally a mission to work on especially if it is a two stroke,so I suggest you get a workshop manual.all gearbox bolts must be undone,the gear linkage is under the bottom carb,this is the tricky part,you have to loosen a nut at bottom of gear arm where gearcable fits,then push in with screw driver,this releases gear change shaft.the biggest problem is trying to see what you are doing.good luck

I need to change the water pump on my 1976 115hp evinrude and i cant drop the lower unit.where can i get fast and free information online to help me?

There is 2 things.The gearbox linkage has a plate on the side of the leg to undo.The other is the splines on the end of the g/box,that goes into the crankshaft,are seized.Your motor being a 76 might have seized splines.Hope it isn't,but hope this helps

I was wondering how much trouble it would be to change out an impeller on a esrly 80's 110 hp evinrude tracker outboard engine.

Impeller? or Propeller? Propeller is just a nut with a carter key holding it on.

Impeller, or water pump? It isnt too bad. You have to take the lower uint off. There is a roll pin in the linkage going to the forward/reverse mechanizm. Then take out the bolts and drop it down. It has a shaft that comes with it out of the engine. Then the water pump is bolted on that shaft. Check the seals under the pump and the oil in the gearbox for water. Mine was bad and pumped water into the gearbox and oil up and out. Then froze and busted.

I have an evinrude etec 115 , water is leaking from where the leg meets the gearbox , what is causing this?

check the seal at the pick up tube. If you have a strong water pressure at the tell tail, no need to worry it is normal.

Kenmore 70 series won't spin

If the washer makes a noise from the front bottom center, when not agitating and not spinning, the motor/gearbox coupling has broken.
closed2a0a669.jpg open7976f3d.jpg It is designed to break, if the load gets enough that the motor may be damaged and is simple (enough) to replace

whirlpoool 285753, parts common to whirlpool roper ge kenmore and about a dozen other brands.
dissassembly instructions vary slightly between models but close enough, some have 2 clips some 3
  • remove trims from ends of control panel 14db4bb.jpg
  • remove screws under trims
  • raise control panel and flip it over backwards
    (note: do not dislodge air tube from level selector)
  • remove brass retainer clips at rear corners
    (note: position for reinstall)
  • remove lid switch connector
  • remove lid and body
the motor and gearbox are now exposed
  • undo bolt(s) holding spring clips to pump,
  • remove spring clips holding pump to motor(note position for reinstall)
  • unto bolt(s) holding spring clips to motor
  • remove spring clips holding motor to gearbox
    (note position for reinstall)
  • there will be a plastic 3 legged 'spider' on the gearbox, and one on the motor, and a rubber ring with 6 holes that match the positions of the legs
  • remove the ring and spiders
  • take the ring and spiders to the local parts guy and get replacement,
    (Note the local parts guy will have the replacement, it is common to ge, whirlpool, roper, kenmore, new maytag, frigidaire and many others.)
  • use a piece of dowel, to hammer the center of the spider to the input shaft of the gearbox and the motor shaft,
    (note dont hit the legs they break.)
    (note: new spiders have metal center hubs, this is a common failure and the replacements have been strengthened)
  • turn gearbox shaft 1 leg up 2 legs down
  • turn motor shaft 2 legs up 1 leg down
  • insert new rubber ring over gearbox spider
  • insert motor into rubber ring
reinstall springclips
pump springclips
control panel
in reverse order to above

gearbox coupling ~$17.00
time ~25 minutes, but I do 3-4/month
