Three weeks off the water, but I知 back! My back is 99% healed, so I went snorkeling in the river Sunday. I ordered a new mask that Aquachigger recommended, and tried it out. Unfortunately, the water was too murky, but it works.
Felt good being out on the water again!

I値l be hitting the salt water in Stone Harbor next weekend for the first time. They have a fresh water wash off at the ramp, so I値l definitely take advantage of that.

Great to hear you have recovered and back on water! Looking forward to your Stone Harbor (NJ, right?)pictures and story. Personally, I have only dared to go into brackish water so far... Incidentally, if you take an empty bucket with you, it can be filled with fresh water after the ride and used to soak the pump for a little while. Or do it after returning home. Much better than spraying, I think.

 Just a reminder that salt water is horrible for these boats... rinsing only delays the inevitable. Not so much the pump, but the engine and electrical.  :(

Fortunately, the whole area I was cruising in was a no wake zone, so no water got into the engine at all. Also, before leaving, I sprayed a ton of corrosion preventive on it.
Afterward痴 I went to the car wash ( removed engine first ) and washed it down good. I think I知 good.

I talked in the past about going to the Three Rivers area in Pittsburgh this year, and just found out that the Flight 93 Memorial is directly on the way! I知 definitely going there. Might even go up to Lake Erie.

My God tts so hard to get the motor back in! After 20 minutes in 93 deg heat, I had to take a break. Mounting feet and base are clean, just such a tight fit! WHY?!
I値l be sending the feet to Tom this winter to be machined a little smaller. Not worth the risk of doing it myself, and going too far.

Yup, send them down and I'll fix them up no problem.

Got it. Totally forgot that I needed to apply a little pressure on one side, and it pops right in.

This is the most humidity I致e seen in decades!

Are there ever Mokai Gatherings ? I would love something like that!

BTW, looks like my stalling issues were fixed today, with Tom痴 help. Cleaned the carb, but it ran even worse! Took it out, did it all again. Put it back in, and wouldn稚 even start.
Took it out again, took it apart...again.
Turns out the throttle linkage kept getting knocked off when I put the air filter back on!!🤬🤬🤬

I値l test it today or Sunday.

Chased my stalling issue for awhile. Tom sent me a new carb and I bought a Siphon for the free H2O that seems to come with my non-ethanol fuel (Lol), now the stalling issue has disappeared. I have since cut the hose shorter and use a table for the gas can to get it higher than the Mokai tank which I place on the ground. After pouring the fuel into a clean 5 gallon bucket, I could see the water at the bottom. I usually only jig the jigger about halfway down the "From" tank instead of at the bottom where the water collects. Mine would stall while at idle but always restarted afterwards. Glad to get the problem resolved, hope your test is a success. Enjoy the weather, should be a perfect Mokai weekend.

I've thought about a get together but haven't had time to organize the where and when's...someday!

Glad I was able to help and that you got it sorted out. I am curious how the throttle linkage was getting knocked off, the way it is designed there is no way it could fall off, come loose, or get knocked off. Did you disable the governor and make new linkage, or maybe the last owner?

Maybe the last owner did something, I don稚 know. I was a bit frustrated when I was lifting the engine too, ( without the air filter on ) so there was nothing to hold it in place when testing it in the boat.

I will definitely get the new engine from you. Well worth the price for the peace of mind.
I値l have to take a picture of the impeller shaft, so you can see if it is worn. I grease it before every trip, but I run this boat pretty hard.
Going to hunt for my missing equipment Sunday morning

That motor had one of my clutches on it, even though it was an older design, the shaft won't wear and there is no reason to grease it.  The hull bearing is what you want to grease often.

Good luck with your hunt, nothing more satisfying then recovering something you lost. lol
