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.

  • SHift rod lever replacement parts not right

    I dropped the lower unit to replace the impeller and screwed up the shift rod lever, piece that connects the rod to the engine/cables. I thought I got a replacement but that doesn't seem to fit right. The old part is 318556 and the new one is 326644. THe new one fits on the shaft fine but seems to big and when on you can't shift anymore. Does anyone have any ideas? Or where to get old parts. It's a 77 evinrude 55hp.

    Why are you replacing the shift rod? It has to be set to the correct height per the OMC manual.

      The BRP website shows part# 0320132 for a short shaft model,and 0320133 for a long shaft engine.These may be a superceded number,i don't know.
      Those are the numbers for the shift rod,is that what your talking about?

        The screw that enters from the front of the motor is supposed to tighten that piece to the horizontal rod from the lever. Is that screw tight?

          On the diagram it's part 85. From Ishop marines diagram it's also 85, I think and the description is shift rod lever.

          I am not replacing the rod, just what it hooks to/where the screw goes into under the engine. I should figure out how to put diagrams onto these posts.

            I got that, but when you move the shift lever that #85 part is supposed to lift or push the shift rod. Is that what is not working?

              It broke into three peices. So I need a replacement and I got a new one but it's not the same and doesn't move enough.

                If you are confident that the original part #318556 and the #326644 one you gave are not the same, call sea-way. com in Seattle WA and see if they have the original part by the origiinal number.

                Be sure and have your model number when you call, and you should post it here as well so that there will not be a misunderstanding when others try to use this information.

                  I am confident that it's the right part number, because the number is stamped on the old part.
                  Ordered a new one from Evinrude parts, supposed to be here in 2-7 days.
                  Not bashing anyplace, but the other place might have the different part number because it's an old motor and parts might not be made anymore and that was the supposed replacement number. The new part fit but would not allow enough travel for proper shifting.
