I will see if I can post a video of motor running after rebuild. At least here are before and after pistons. Also new reverse. Hope to run it Saturday. Sorry if all i-phone picture uploads are sideways and up side down. They look correct on my phone. P.S. prayers for all in Texas storm path!

That piston and cylinder look rough. Your brother have the motor? Hopefully it won't take him too long to hone it out and get everything put back together.

It is already done and running. A million needle bearings later lol...don't drop one. If you can tell me how to post a video from an I-phone, I would post it running. I will try it out this weekend. It already has an hour run time on it. Took lots of patience, but those deposits came clean out of the Cylinder, so it was salvaged!

I've noticed a lot of videos posted here are posted on YouTube first, then the link is posted here.

it Runs! When I get home and can figure out the YouTube video upload, maybe I can link some videos. Happy Labor Day weekend to all and thoughts and prayers to my family and all who were in Harvey's wrath!

Thanks. That's the dream. I am in the parts gathering stages. Also Found a new factory steering bracket for my little Wilson's boat motor yesterday that made my day. Thought I would never find one. New old stock on e-bay from Mn.

Second day on the water and break-in complete. Idles like butter.
