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.

  • rebuilding engine ? do i grease all the parts. use gasket sealer?

    have my engine down to bare block installing new internal parts. do i grease them and do i use permatex gasket sealer? there was no kind of oil or gresse on any parts as i tore it apart. how the engine runs without oil is beyound me.what oil should i use before installing pistons? should i grease the cycilinder walls also. is there a spray lube i can use to grease all the parts? lot of questions for such a small mind as mine lol

    Use 2-stroke oil and coat the parts, don't use sealer on new gaskets unless the machine surfaces are damaged.
    Hey, Have you seen? They make Really Cool life preservers nowadays.
    So "Looking Dorky" is no longer an excuse for not wearing one.

        Did you use an anaerobic sealer and prep spray before joining the crankcase halves back together? Or what did you end up using to seal the case halves back together?

          "how the engine runs without oil is beyound me" - sounds like we found the reason for the rebuild jus kiddin, the oil is mixed with the fuel - check it out: http://science.howstuffworks.com/two-stroke2.htm

            the motor is just back from the machine shop. was no need in braking the block apart. during reassembly. the gasket set says nothing about sealers. been a practice of mine in all mechanical parts as cars and so on to use permatex. my question is no or yes. and what sealer to use. pretty simple question.?

              One reason for not getting your "simple question" answered is that different components require different types of sealers. If you don't have a service manual, get one. Even my cheapie Seloc manual describes where and what needs gasket sealer and what kind of gasket sealer. The manual will also explain how a 2-cycle engine works and is lubricated.
