The u-joints should slide off.(SHOULD)
If not then WD or and spray then heat.
The housing is only $1000
Then cool then heat.Then a slide hammer.You can hook up a slider and put some force on it....
Yes vey important to turn that anoying buzzer off when it's ruining a great day on the water. :)
Look under the rectifier.There might be a foundry mark there.
The starter "if" original it might have a date.
Most motors and boats were a matched pair.
You can contact the boat maker for the...
Welcome, fill out the profile and locaion.
You might be close to someone who can help.
The impeller will orient itself once it's started.
Yes a tight fit.
You sure the kit's the right one?
Probably not gonna work.
Mercury did a few changes.
Keep looking on E-bay and Craigslist.
If the themo was stuck "open" then it should have ran too cool????
Like Frank said change the Impeller.
You run in salt water there in India?Profile,location.
I worked on hundreds of these while working at the dealership in the 80's.
Never once did I bend the shift shaft.
If it's free enough to shift by hand(it should be) it will shift when pushed up to...
The 94 was a mix of Volvo and OMC
Get a manual for that year.
The Volvo/OMC is filled from under the shift cover.
It has a plug(allen head) just above and to the right of the center of the...
Yup start at 1 turn out and see if it runs.
If not out another 1/8 until it runs.
Worked on a 85/85 and it wouldn't run right until I started at 1,1/2 turns out.
Get the motor warm.Turn the top...
F338129-1 SEAL, DRIVESHAFT SPLINE 24.00
The rubber seal is avaiable.
The new "carrier" make sure you pressure test it after you install.
It's not that hard to reseal. F141118...
Keep the surface gap plugs.Nothing wrong with the plugs.
Millions of they motors are using them.If the motors setup right it will need nothing changed.
If you have ANY moisture in the cylinder you...
Some one suggested a bit of oil in the cylinder and then another comp test.
Also use a deifferent guage and see if the results are the same.
If the core plugs were popped out???It's possible the...
It doesn't need to be in N
The o-rings on the shaft.
Take them off and clean out the grooves.
Any grease "under" the o-ring will lift it up and make it hard to get into the bearing.
A bit of...
Get an outboard tank.
Fill it with gas and hook it to your motor.
Then go for a ride.
That will give you an idea of your usage.
I have outboards(twin 88.85hp) and get about 2.3 miles per gal....
Has anyone set the idle back so you can troll?
The motor needs to run at a certain speed for it to operate right.
Do a comp test.
What's the RPM's set at?
Markings on 1 side usually means it needs adjustment.
It should slide all the way to the shoulder.
If the 2 cylinders with low comp are next to each other, it just might be a bad head gasket.
It might be just siezed rings? Some people use tranny fluid or Marvel Mystery Oil to soak...
The build up??? isin't gonna be enough to worry about.
The big square plug.It's gonna be tough to remove.Don't try.
On the 88 there is a small cover on the lower front of the exhaust port cover....
I use Dawn dish soap.
The part I don't like about cleaners and soaks is the top section of the carbs where the welch plugs fit in.
I'm never sure it gets all the way in there unless the plugs are...
I have a dual battery setup.
One is a 450CCA the other is a 550 or 650cca.
I go out and run the radio(vhf) and a fish finder all day.
I run out on 2 batteries and when we stop I switch to one...
You need an outboard specific tach.
Yours is a 20 pole tach.
Any Force tach from the early 80's to the early 90's
Should fit.The 50/85/125/150 all use a 20 pole tachs.
If the static timing is set at 28 and your linkage is opening the throttle all the way.
Try pushing the throttle lever all the way, then go back and see if the linkage on the carbs can go any...
Not sure this this will help?
Under the steering wheel is there a screw that applies pressure on the steering wheel to make it stop free wheeling.
You changed the timing.
Probably not a good idea.
Usually the timing doesn't change unless the trigger/stator has been changed.
Or the linkage has broken.
Go through the help stickies and do a...
That motor has a Force powerhead and Mercury electrics and Mercury lower.
I'd check the compression and spark and the oil in the lower.
Those check out? BUY!
Usually on a pontoon they have...
Not sure where your located but every place that sells outboard oil and gear oil will have a pump kit somewhere.
The smaller outboards should be filled from the bottom.
The ones with the drain,fill...
The only thing missing is the screen.
Like Lou says, measure from the drive case.
Measure in N
The Volvos usually come with a water/fuel seperating filter.
It looks like an oil filter.Maybe under the fuel pump on that model?
Any more letters after the 4.3GS
Mabe a 4.3GSJLKD or something...
Did you check for voltage into the coil?
If so what's the reading?9 or 12
Even a fresh water boat the exhaust manifold or heat exchanger can go bad.
The Volvo circ pump is $400 US not sure what that'd be in Canada?
The Volvo manifold is $1400 WOW!!!
I've seen them as...
These were from a stater that worked,barely worked.
Try removing the plugs and turning it over.
If it turns then? the comp might be low on 1 or more cylinders.
I post on a few different sites and try to give the best info I can.
I also send people from other sites to here because of the people who answer on the foums.
I sent him to Rick cause Dons dead.
The vanes will orient themself as it turns over.
If you installed a filter and never ran fuel through it then it's gonna rust.
Since it's a Volvo replacement part.
I doubt you'd have any trouble.
Not very often the circ pump goes bad.
Is it wobbling or screeching?
Just making sure your not wasting $$$
Most times an...
In 88/89 they used 2 different styles of check valves and reeds setups.
The early had the reeds and screen and had a 2 piece setup, the later a 1 piece with just a screen.
The newer style,I have...
The only way to fix saturated foam is block the front of the boat way up in front.
Then try to blow air through the hull drying it out.That way would take a LONG time.

Your snout might not be adjustable.
Post a pic of the lower unit and show the tab in a couple of views.
If it is adjustable,from the rear, if the boats turning right?
Move the tab to the right....
Clean the carbs.
The air screws are for low speed operation.
Above a certain rpm's the main jet takes over.
Remove the air screws and check for damage.
Any grooves or nicks and they need...
If your trying to start it with jumper cables????
They aren't designed to allow enough amperage to turn the motor over.
They allow the battery to charge but won't allow a start
Most jumper cables...
I'm a little late adding this but just got home.
Remember it's a 125 any more power you need to get a bigger motor.
That said,the low compression could be the guage,since all 4 are the same.
Pressure test the unit before any repairs.
If the carrier needs to come out???
Use a puller any other way can cause costly damage$$$$$
After the pressure test,post the results.
The twin carbs make it something different than a 130.
It could be a 140 or bigger.
The motor says Chrysler but it's a Volvo.
The carbs, they seem to be down draft solex.
Look on the motor for...
IF??? If your gonna take it apart??
The impeller might "look" ok.
But as soon as you put it back in go bad???
They are cheap.
The wet plugs? That's from running an oil/gas mixture.
Dry plugs are for a 4stroke.
The recirc systemshould be checked if the motor has any amount of time.
The gaskets will probably rip/tear as...
Yes put a filter in there.
Wally World.G-2 or G-12 Fram.
The running ethanol is not a problem.
Remember when they introduced Non leaded gas??
They said it was gonna burn up the valves and heads...
The sender, any sender is just what Justin said.
If you can get it to mount???
Then it probably will work.
The sender depending on make might be adjustable??
I think it's sealed with sillycone.
The block heats up and cools down and it eventually pushes the sillycone out.
The water/exhaust flow through a passage in that section.
Yes that's the exhaust...
Anything from the early 90's to the mid 70's
