  • Thanks.. Coming soon! I hope if Jay ever sees it he doesn't care, I tried to make it light hearted and funny so obviously not mean spirited to me, hope no one takes it that way.

    • Shame you didn't catch whatever was living in the exhaust channel so you could force the rodent to pay back rent for using that Alpha One Gen 2 as an apartment.

      Other than having to use some grease to keep that plastic plate to stay put during assembly because it likes to fall down from the outdrive upper, to me the Alpha One Gen 2 impeller job was twice as easy as doing the standardized OMC/BRP outboard impeller kit on most of their 70 to 300 HP outboards used now (I think 1980'ish to current day).

      My biggest complaint about the BRP/OMC outboard one is all the extra chemicals/glues I needed to build that housing and place the gaskets. I didn't need any of that junk on the Alpha One Gen 2.

      I guess that's a fair tradeoff of doing pre-mix gas and OMC hoops to jump through for avoiding doing a bellows job.

      Just as a wierd/odd comparison, your voice sounds somewhat close to "Bradon's Garage" on YouTube that does a lot of OMC outboard videos.

      • Don't know anything about outboards but I could see where you're coming from, the impeller is super easy on mercs.

        dunno who brandon's garage is but odds are I won't be able to stand his voice lol

        • Impeller installation video is up! Trying to make them at least a little entertaining since I tend to drone on, plus, an impeller is a pretty easy job, but for someone thats never done it, maybe the video will at least be tolerable

            • Everyone is making me nervous about the bellows job lol...

              Although, I decided to give myself the best shot and I'm going with the exhaust tube instead of bellows. I heard the exhaust is much harder than the u-joint.

              Plus I've been doing 20 reps with my flexible screwdriver every night to keep in shape for hose clamps

              • Alignment pins, we don need no stinkin pins.

                I will say in the various items I have had to struggle to get aligned, not once did the Alpha One Gen 2 imepeller kit and housing feel like it needed more than putting the four securing bolts in to align it the gasket, base plate, and housing evenly.

                Regarding bellows, I think of it like certain suspension/steering jobs, it is going to be a very involved job with several hours of labor, you just hope you get a break in not dealing with worst case scenario issues.

                If you can tolerate doing a front end job on a vehicle successfully following the manual, you can likely handle a bellows job.

                In fairness I am speaking from the research in the steps required, videos showing it, and experiences told here in the forum and other places.

                When I first owned it, I paid to have the bellows done.

                As the years went by and more issues popped up, I did more of the work myself until I sold it.

                      Which cutter pin ye speak of? I'm told the gear lube hose, water hose, and exhaust bellows are the worst. Uni bellows should be cake.

                                Picked up a new "old" toy the other night! its a 201 series from 1952. I know its not an ideal machine for marine vinyl but I didn't pay much at all for it and I won't feel bad if it craps out vs breaking my wifes new fangled machine that does all kinds of fancy stitches.

                                I DID have to dig in to is so I could do some electrical surgery, all of the wiring was basically non-existent. But I don't mind doing it, and I kinda like taking apart old stuff like this to see how they work... Its incredible how complicated (and how well built) an old singer is. Lots of moving parts!

                                Anywho, I'm curious to see how it handles jo-ann vinyl. Hoping I can use at least 68 thread no problem.

                                P.S. the machine isn't super tiny, my cat is huge lol, hes about 22 lbs (picked him out as a kitten cuz he had huge paws hoping hed get big, and boy did he).
