    Ummm... I don't think so. Sounds like he slept through trigonometry because he thought he'd never need it.

    Pricing depends on your location. Prices are typically lower at the end of the season, higher in the spring. $4100 sounds fair, but it never hurts to offer less.

    No need to prime the pump. Put a teaspoon of gas into the carbs and it will fire off instantly. You'll probably have to prime it twice, but after it runs for 10 seconds, the fuel system will be...

    When is the last time that it was used? I'd be afraid of gum in the fuel system, especially with ethanol fuel. That is fixable, but it takes a lot of time.

    Otherwise, I think the biggest...

    Don't know about that model, but on the STX-12F it was helpful to remove the engine mounting bolts. The driveshaft coupling was still engaged, but we were able to tilt the engine enough to get to...

    I've bought 3 of them for my LXs and my 310.

    The driveshaft bearing/seal assembly is called the 'holder'. They split when they get old and flood the hull, which is one reason that an electric bilge pump is a really good idea. Ruptured cooling...

    I would suggest getting the driveshaft holder from Rhaas. I just bought OEM pisser nozzles and re-routed the hoses. You have to block off the rear pisser outlets. I did not put straight fittings...

    The original Yuasa battery my dealer installed in my Ultra 150 lasted for 9 years. No maintainer, just a Schumacher trickle charger plugged into a timer that let it run 15 minutes per day.

    I pulled the seat off one of my Ultra LXs yesterday and found a mess. Found the cap laying in the bottom of the hull. Checked the oil level and it was only about 1/2 quart low, so no problems...

    No offense taken, Sean!

    I used to moderate a website for the Yamaha boats and you just couldn't keep people happy. Spent hours and hours deleting spammers, etc.
