Getting a 2-stroke to run cleaner?

Same result here. Oil scum in barrel. Lots of smoke when cold. Maybe you can run it on muffs at home long enough to warm it & then it would burn cleaner at the lake.

I don't think synthetic oil is any better. Maybe olive oil would be better for the ducks but not so good for your motor . . .

Home made mask info

Yea I intended to use vac bag as filter but then I read that it has too much restriction, so the air just goes around it.
I had a spare furnace filter & dissected it for the media. When I breath thru the mask it collapses a little so I think it is doing something.
Everyone stay safe!

1987-88 Johnson 20hp

I have been getting parts from Marineengines.com. They have good catalogues. If a part # is shared between model years you can have confidence it is the right one. Please post picture of starter mount. Those get a workout so I doubt epoxy would be strong enough. Maybe it could be tig welded, but get...

Starcraft Fishing 16’ Skiff, 60hp OB Motor - all systems NEW

I had my daughter make a weighted decision matrix when buying her car. You have columns for factors such as price, condition, features, distance, in which you enter scores from 1-10. Then next to those columns have a column with a weight multiplier, such as condition = X3; price = X2; distance = X1....

Now canceled world-wide ...

They could have a 2 tier system, young people go back to work & us older folks stay away from them. They just need to figure out how to bubble us off.

Selling boat question

Not sure what your question is but assuming you need trailer loading pointers. I have found that not having trailer too deep helps getting boat on straight. Rule of thumb - when fenders are at water level it is about right.

I would sea foam the motor.

You could even put motor with spark plugs facing up & put some in spark plug holes & let it sit. Have pistons mid stroke. Maybe rings are gummed up.

I wonder how much steering torque this motor has when you open it up?

The 2 trillion will have to be paid back some time, hopefully far in the future. The kids partying on the beach may be the ones who pay.

My wife & I are making cloth pre-filter masks for the ER. Takes about 45 minutes of labor each. Something to do beside watching TV.

Being a senior citizen, I kinda like the conservative approach. Anyone can pass the bug onto you. I just as soon not be sick & or dead.

Another idea would be to make sure the bow isn't getting lifted when it goes against the bow stop.
