Wow Curti nice boat and cart I would have had trouble letting go of either of them :thumbup:

Mason your idea worked great!!!!!! Vice grips and an impact and the clutch came right off. I just pulled the motor out of the cart. I got the starter off so I can change the brushes. While its out the seals will be changed and I will give the whole thing a once over. Looking at the crank case side it's covered in oil so the seals need to be swapped. OK so honey do's Saturday cart on Sunday :mrgreen: Oh and the clutch looks to be brand new I think I got lucky and they changed it right before I got it. The weights are still shiny :-P

Cajun, While you got the motor out, if it were me, I'd take EVERYTHING off the frame, pressure wash the sh*t out of it, inspect all joints, etc. for good welds, throw a bead of weld where needed, then prime and repaint the whole thing.

Now that I got mine all back together, I wished I had done this. Besides, it gives you the chance to check everything you take apart, and put back together again, to make sure everything is good. I know its a pain, but I think totally worth the effort!

Glad your clutch came off easy! I really enjoyed working on that peice. Be sure not to breath in that black dust in the starter/generator, its nasty stuff!

Dang that boat looks familiar. When did you sell it? I sorta have this feeling I ran with that boat once or twice down the lake! (maybe at Anna??) VERY nice boat man. What motor did you have in there? I hate to ask this, but why did you get rid of it?

Here's mine. 23'5 Caravelle Interceptor

I got rid of it Nov. 09
I did a few poker runs at SML and Anna is the closest lake to my house. My home lake was Buggs, used to have a camper there(My dad has property there.
I loved that boat. Sunsation 288 with the Merc 500efi
Gas hit $4 a gallon, Boat payment, insurance and upkeep. Also Got married and bought a house. I plan on another boat, but just broke ground on my garage today

That is the agenda Mason. I also will be painting all the plastic cowls that I took off the motor and will acid and pressure wash the head and block. Might titey up the wiring in the engine compartment too :thumbup:

While you have it apart, would be a good idea to remove the side case and change the case gasket. Yes it looks like it's comeing from the crank seal, but a "blown" case gasket can give the same oil covered look and are more often the problem. Cheap insurance.
