I love seeing another Lund on the site. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out. Will be curious to see if the prop change gets you up on plane, 8hp is a bit light for that hull I think.

Is it a two stroke ?, four ?.....then change the oils both upper and lower ...zome check the water pump,the impeller,the zinc anode,givd it a try...make sure the motor pis...

Hi, if it were me I'd go with a super-smooth motor made by Honda. On our 14.6 Lund we have two Honda's, main motor a 25 HP and a 2 HP for trolling.
