    The good thing about a wedge, is that you'll not loose thrust as compared to having to a trim system to achieve the same angle, hence why I've seen wedges mainly marketed to speed on glass conditions...

    That's an MR1 engine. So if you are looking at the oil filter (which is screwed into the lower crankcase), go exactly straight up vertically, has a black cover and one wire (screwed into the upper...

    Yes - They *should* add fresh grease to the IB housing (intermediate shaft bearing), and I'd highly suggest you make sure they do, as it's kinda a PITA to get at, because you typically need to move...

    Depends on where and what measured that value - but generally "yes" that's too low. A healthy batt on a DVM should read 12.8v minimum.
    But if that was read on the dash - could be the just circuit...

    I already know you can not spin the motor by hand . . . hence likely not a "dead spot" if the motor comes back alive after your repeated attempts to power it up.

    "volts" is one thing ......

    I've been on this forum quiet a while, and the statistical-odds likely not - not seen anyone have such an issue like that before, but anything is possible.

    Correct, marine engines do work harder, and that's the main reason to use the oil change interval denominator, as the manufacturers/engineers of cars and water crafts have already done that...

    Basically yes - you got it.
    It's the way "I" do it ... and my rational is based on a "total "use" concept. AKA, if you use a car, you're putting miles on it. If you're using a watercraft, you're...

    Iíve discussed this in another thread somewhere, but the easiest conversion formula to use, is the typical oil change intervals as the common denominator.
    For example, a gasoline car would be every...

    Hmmmmm.... I'm not seeing any big changes to the IB as per the fiche (2008-2020) ... perhaps you are referencing the "other" IB unit Yamaha made ??

    Trust me . . . you (or service dept) will need to grease that IB from time to time - it is after all a part of the prescribed service intervals.

    Not off hand, they are small. Doubt you'd need to replace them, yet I did with all 316 stainless last time I pulled my engine.

    Maybe I’m confused, but I never heard of gelcoat on SMC hulls, and SMC is what the 2004+ FX is.

    The reason has to do with the fabrication process ... gelcoat is not applied to hull’s exterior,...
