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.

  • Pistons for 1989 Gamefisher 7.5 HP Outboard

    Hi I bought a new 1989 7.5 HP Gamefisher from Sears in the US new in'89. Last week I cooked it a bit as it was not getting cooled properly when I was trolling. My local repair man removed the top and advises that I need new pistons.Problem is that Sears no longer list the pistons in their parts department but they do list other parts for this motor. My man also says that the 9.9 and 15 HP for this year all take the same size piston.He has not had any luck locating pistons here in New Brunswick, Canada and I'm hoping that through this board someone can help me locate a source for these. Many thanks,Art

        Thanks Blaze. Yes I did try the 1-800 Sears parts list number before I started my search. They are the ones who told me "no longer avaiable" I had no luck with the certified parts site. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.ThanksArt

          Hi--I have a 5HP Gamefisher; I believe the 7.5 is similar. In mymanual it says that the powere head is made by Tecumseh--when I needed a fuel pump element I bought it at Sears, but the part came in a Tecumseh bag with a Tecumseh P/N. Maybe you can find a Tecumseh dealer and they could help you out? Good luck, Rich

            I just checked for you....same as Force 9.9 and 15 HP Get your parts from a any Mercury outboard dealer. You might jus be able to up grade it to a 15 HP by changing the carb.........9.9 to 15 HP is done this way, you will need a different intake reed setup, the "reed plate assembly" for 15 hp(reeds,reed stop and plate). If ya can afford it go for it while its in pieces, you'll need a new 3 blade 9" pitch prop though. Try one of the online outboard junkyards first for the intake parts if ya wanna try this upgrade.
