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 elseís 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 itís posted at the end of someone elseís 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.

      Woody, you can get engine help here and boat repair and restoration over in the Boat Restoration forum.

      For the engine, go to the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) forum and look for a thread called "Awakening A Sleeping Outboard". Should help you with the engine part.

      Good luck and let us know how your doing or have any questions.
      When in doubt...use the manual

            Yukon Delta

            If you are interested I have the largest known collection of Yukon Delta sales brochures and instruction sheets. A lot of work went into restoring torn, missing sections, water destroyed and worn areas (3 to make one good brochure), with many hours of work until they are
            a nicely presented work. I have a refaced copy of the floor plan for the 31 3/4
            and 25 3/4 foot Yukon $4.00 each. They have the
            interior layout, a detailed depiction of layers and
            weights of fiberglass as well as upper deck thickness
            and what it was fabricated with. I have the
            refaced/restored copy of the brochure for the 1982
            Yukon...$12.00. This shows interior pictures,
            exterior pictures descriptions and offerings in the 25
            3/4 and 31 3/4 Yukons. Both the black and white floor
            plans and the color brochure show the flybridge.
            Other original brochure copies:
            Heater controls:
            Dometic L.P. gas & electric refrigerator instructions for use. $2.00
            " " " " " " installation instructions $1.00
            Thetford Electra Magic toilet; owners manual $3.00
            " " " " " " operating instructions $3.00
            Porta Potti operating instructions $2.00
            Wall Heater lighting and operating instructions $2.00
            Durable 25 foot Houseboat $6.00
            Mark II 25 3/4 foot cruiser $6.00
            25 foot brochure describing boat and uses, showing fold down walk around planks $4.00 (if you have the planks, you are lucky)
            Cruisable-Liveable-Affordable-Towable Yukon Delta brochure $4.00
            There are no shop manuals or wiring manuals available, only an 8 page........ paltry info sheet. But I do have an owners instruction book (40 Pages), that I have restored showing not only the Yukon Delta's wiring, but it has the best color coded wiring diagrahms/attachments to the gauges on the dash board and accessory wiring to horns, engine exhaust blower, lights...etc. and how they are placed.
            Yes, it says Volvo Penta Instruction book...but I've looked everywhere for wiring info, and this is it. I have it on a CD ...$6.00 gas and $6.00 for marine diesel.
            If you have a Volvo Penta from 1968 thru 1991, I have the Seloc Manual on CD that includes complete rebuilding, tuning, start up, maintenance and extensive parts diagrahms with pictures drawings and great troubleshooting..... $11.00.
            There were Yukons ranging in size from 23 feet to 38
            feet. I have 2 in my collection. 25 3/4 and 31
            3/4. No I did not make up the 3/ is on the
            black and white page.

            Francis and Bud Mills owned the co. he died in 2002 and a relative wanted to restart the company, but nothing came of it.
            The last Yukon built, that I know of, was 1996.
            They ranged in size from 23 to 38 feet.
