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.

  • were does the spring in the picture go on a 9.8 110 mercury

    can anybody tell were this spring goes on a 9.8 110 mercury, it was looped on the end like it would go around a bolt, but it straighten out when i pulled it to a bolt in its path, but the bolt was to far away. i know it goes around the half moon plastic peice but i dont' know what it attaches to, i tore the motor apart last year to put in the plastic cam for the shifter that was stripped now i can't remember, thats what old age does to me or maybe one to many beers.thanks

      The spring should go to the tilt reverse lock lever on the transom bracket or motor cowling. What year and SR# is the motor?

              Yeah bud, I think your best best is going to be to call some of the salvage yards and see if they have one of these as a parts motor. I tried searching for the part and came up with quite a few No Longer Available.. Some hardware stores have a decent selection of springs as well which you might be able to match up if yours is complete.

                  When looking for the parts and diagrams look at parts for a 1974 motor as 73 showes a older setup than you have.
                  To replace the lever that the spring hooks to call the following dealers as they list it in stock.
