Unclean! Unclean!
« on: August 24, 2011, 04:42:57 PM »
On two counts.No matter how much I scrub,still feel dirty.......wire brush...javex......still can't get clean..........ah,the H with it,time for another shower.What can I say,it followed me home-but don't tell anybody  :D

I'd rather a full bottle in front of me than a full frontal lobotomy.

To be fair ford , that model Honda is a good little engine. Nice and light ( Yes I did say that  ;)).
The bigger models, 6/8/10Hp models are overweight pigs.
I hope it has only had fresh water use. The japs have not been able to come up with an Alloy that can last in salt water. Corrosion city. >:-D

It's only had about 2hrs use-all fresh water.That made it hard to pass up.I'll rarely use it but it may come on handy on a long,overloaded trip.
I've always been a fan of Johnson/Evinrude.Any of them I've been associated with from way old to new seem capable of taking ridiculous abuse with few issues.Mercury/Mariner seem to be the opposite.

As long as it doesn't have titanium valves in it.....

Yamaha CT3, RT3, MX125, SC500, Toy Prius, Diesel F250 (it all balances out)
