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.

  • Goodyear Outboard

    How's this for old. When I was in high school about 7 years ago, my guidence counceler gave me an old boat motor. I have no idea how old it is but it says Goodyear on the side of it, and it ran! I put in storage one winter and the bowl on the carb broke, I haven't tried to get it fixed since. What are the chances of getting parts for this thing?

    If you get us the model number,maybe a better discription number of cylinders,full shift,360degree reverse integral tank. There is a very good chance it was built by OMC Gale devision.Depending on the year many parts are still available some even from NAPA. Your bowl may be tough to find but they are out there. Good luck.

          Could that be a Sea Bee? Blue cowl with built in tank and trottle on the engine front?

            I have one of those old Goodyear/Sea-Bee outboards. Been thinking of selling it off in pieces or as a whole. I used it on an old canoe when I was a kid. Never give me any trouble and ran strong for it size.

              If it's a runner you should sell it whole. They're worth more as sentimental value than as dollar value, either parts or whole.

              Or you could give it to another kid and he can relive your past.
