Ordered a trim switch with the deutsch connector from bezos. Cost 10 bux which considering the connector is $7, not bad. Its actually for a yammi. I had to file the opening a little but better than $100 from dealer. Got it as im getting ready for work so quick job.

 Set the drill bit in the chuck same depth as bolt. Drill bit came loose. Retightened the chuck without thinking and went through the bottom of the boat. :banghd:

Also iirc the end of the steering cable where the rod bolts in is supposed to spin a little correct?  Mine wiggles very little. 

 

Doh!!  Are you good freinds with Red, per chance?

 

Yeah, if I'm understanding you correctly, the end of the rod should rotate to accomodate engine tilting

Your wife drives a car with a clutch? 

She wanted a beater to drive to work. Figured she might as well have fun and get a wagon with a stick which pretty much narrows it down to volvo or lesbaru. I vetoed the lesbaru.

Consider yourself lucky. 

 

I taught the little woman how to drive when we were dating. She was 19…..she passed her test and then suddenly got the frights. Wouldn’t get behind the wheel again. I have been driving her around for over 30 years…….

Heres the fun part. Supposedly evinrude is starting production again. 

I hope so. It's a shame not to have any 2-strokes being produced.

Plenty are still being made.

Buying them in the US is another story...

My wife used to drag race illegal street races around Colchester, decades before I met her. She hears and feels things in a car long before I do. Turns a wrench too. If she finds a good 1972 Camaro I am going to have to build a garage for it... In her opinion; "if it doesn't have a motor, it's not a sport..."
