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 threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

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

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (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 thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread 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 thread.

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

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread 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 thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread 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 thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

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

  • Year of 9.5 hp Evinrude Sportwin

    I'm considering purchasing a 9.5 hp Evinrude Sportwin. The seller has listed it as a 1973 model year. The model number is 9322B, and the serial number is J 07865.1. Can somebody please verify the year?2. Any problems in particular that I should look for with this model and year? (and I plan to do a compression test when I go to look at it)THANKS

    Yup. That's a 1973, P51D.The only "problem" I know of is sealing of the exhaust. If the exhaust leaks under the bonnet the engine wont run with the bonnet on.Easy to recognise and easy to fix.

        Take the cover off, grab the top of the flywheel (not running) and give it a good wiggle back and forth. If it flops around, the motor mounts are shot.

          If, instead of hijacking a 4 year old thread you just start a new one of your own you will get a lot better response.

          Open the forum. Look at the upper left. Click on "create new post".

            The motor appears to be a 1967 model. It looks clean, which is a good sign. For 1966 they changed the latch for the cowling so that it was now a lever on the lower cowling, not a knob on the upper cowling. They also improved the motor mounts for smoother operation, and the carburator got some fine tuning for better economy at part throttle. Naturally a 1967 model carries forward with all those improvements.

            Run 50:1 in it.

              I have a 1973 and it does have a few differences than the one in the picture. My upper cowling is white and the face plate (where the knobs are) is basically blue and the low speed idle knob on mine is different as well. I am not sure what that red wire is at the back of the inner cowling either.
