Yamaha G8 Club - Please post!

OK you G8 fans. Since us G8 guys keep hijacking other posts, (bad bad people) :roll: , I figured lets start our own G8 Owners Club post!

This post is welcome to ALL G8 owners, (since there isn't very many of us out here!!!)

I'll start this show!

Here is my 1991 G8 latest pics. WARNING! These are DIRTY pictures. Please do not show under aged or over aged people these pics, without first letting them know, I didn't wash it before taking the pictures! :shock:

I've now added a Jakes lift, cup holders/arm rests, fishing rod holders, and the Jakes heavy duty shocks/springs to my car. The third picture is another stupid project I am currently working on for my little boy. (I hate this thing!)

OK, come on guys, lets see em all in one post!

Ok, then I'm #2 and everybody's seen my car (and it's still clean!), so I'm not posting any pictures!!

And Yes, I'd hate that thing too! I hated those things in the dunes!!!

I'll be #3 then, dang it.
That Cart looks pretty Clean to me.
Since you guys give me a hard time about liking the mud, here's a tame, recent shot

Re: Yamaha G8 Club - Please post!
 
Clutch tool? What clutch tool? Don't need any stinking clutch tool!

Curti, do you ever get down to SML?

CajunLoneWolf 06-07-2011 08:46 PM

Re: Yamaha G8 Club - Please post!
 
Don't I need to remove the primary clutch to replace the crankshaft seal on that side????? Maybe I read the destructions wrong hmmmmmmmm:roll:

stuff4mason 06-07-2011 08:53 PM

Re: Yamaha G8 Club - Please post!
 
Oh, I am following you now....sorry. But, the clutch will come off without a tool. Just put a pair of vice grips (gently) on the shaft, hold and loosen the bolt. Mine wasn't very tight and came right off.

CajunLoneWolf 06-07-2011 08:56 PM

Re: Yamaha G8 Club - Please post!
 
Thanks bro with the whole loan a tool program and everyone asking about the clutch puller I thought for sure I was gonna have to break out the torch on that 19 year old clutch lol:-P

I have been to SML a few times, but not since I had to sell my Baby (the boat that is)
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t...urti/Curti.jpg


I sold this Club Car, I built, to a guy out that way somewhere

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

stuff4mason 06-08-2011 04:15 PM

Re: Yamaha G8 Club - Please post!
 
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

thecurti 06-08-2011 04:55 PM

Re: Yamaha G8 Club - Please post!
 
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.

Good idea smallblock I was gonna pull it off to make sure the internals looked good. I'm ordering that gasket plus the exaust, carb and head cover just incase:thumbup:

78 eh? Nice! Yea, that's where you guys left me in the dust, was in choppy water. Flat water, I can run 68-69 all day long, but as soon as it gets rough, my boats flying out of the water and out of control! Its fun, but boy dangerous with her trimmed half way up!

thecurti 06-09-2011 12:24 PM

Re: Yamaha G8 Club - Please post!
 
Agreed! trimmed up can get squirrely quick. 78 was trimmed up and no trim tab. Vey consistant 75mph boat after spark arrestor and labbed prop.
My current boat is a 12" Jon, I'm the fastest on my pond :lhmo:

If your ordering an aftermarket case gasket, make shure there is a "sealent" on the gasket between the upper 2 bolts (just forward of the dipstick), that's were they useually "blow out". Good luck:thumbup:

will do bro after pulling mine off that is exactly where it was busted so just any gasket sealant will work or do you recommend one. Good looking out smallblock I appreciate it:thumbup:

Air shocks! I found some at Autozone that went in without using the lift bracket. They took about 10 minutes to install too.

Re: Yamaha G8 Club - Please post!
 
Lmao Mason I rated it 5 stars. The little rating thing is under thread tools :mrgreen:

Hey Justin what's the make and model of those air shocks. I was gonna grab some on eBay but beings that you have already test fit them why go through the trial and error of buying the wrong stuff:thumbup:

CajunLoneWolf 06-10-2011 05:20 AM

Re: Yamaha G8 Club - Please post!
