Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone else’s topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when it’s posted at the end of someone else’s topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • 3 Years Sitting

    Hi Tohatsu Guru,

    I just purchased a 1982 Sea Nymph with an NS55B. I have an appointment with a mechanic tomorrow to check out the motor. It has been sitting for 3 years but before that ran great.

    I am going to change:
    the plugs
    hoses
    impeller
    and spray gas oil mixture in the cylinder so I don't get a dry start.

    is there anything else you would recommend?


    thanks,

    Marvin

      Marvin,

      Be aware that the old 55's are very obsolete. While the water impeller is available for the 55B, the complete kit is not; No carb kits; few electrical parts, and almost no mechanical parts. In essence, if it starts and runs OK, cool, but beware that if anything breaks, you likely will be in the market for a different motor.

            Thanks guys. So far I've gotten an appointment to get the impeller done, the carbs are being redone, and and I have replaced the broken fuel filter.

            I have pulled up most of the carpet and the floors have rotted around some of the edges. I am contemplating cutting the outsides out and replacing them or just removing the whole floor. What do you all think?

            The mechanics look good, steering, trim, throttle ect all seem functional however I will need a new throttle cable down the road it looks kind of frayed.

            I'm thinking about taking all the bad wood out and replacing it but I have not decided if I should go with carpet or I have seen other talk about vinyl.

            Let me know your thoughts,

            Thanks

            Marvin

              Post some pics so we can see what you see. Some rot will probably lead to a lot of rot.

                  I am thinking about replacing the whole floor with 1/2 plywood (not pressure treated) and seal it with wither resin or epoxy. Any thoughts...
