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.

What should the compression numbers be??Does this motor have the new SS shift rod or do i still have to look for the rotted steel one??Thanks guys!! You have always been right there for all my questions!!

    hello carefully inspect the shift rod. compression should all be within about 10 psi from bank to bank. look it over carefully for signs of shoddy repairs and corrosion. good luck and keep posting

      look for any signs of service and ask for service records. spend $50 and get a mobile to mechanic to inspect it for you.

            I have a 225 from the same year. Definitely check for corrosion, but also it should have had new thermostats & water pump and a carb rebuild at least once in its life....

              that motor is blown or severly neglected. run,run away. a 30 psi spread is very very bad. good luck and keep postingPS if you really want to know the condition of the cylinder sealing have a leak down test done. its much more accurate than compression.
