Greetings All,

I am having a few minor issues with my 1995 Evinrude, and would like to take it to someone who knows what they are doing. I'm tired of dealing with the bumbler who sold me/installed my engine. I need a mechanic.

Do any of you know an OMC mechanic you would recommend who is fairly quick and does good work? Thanks in advance.

P.S. Does Tri-State work on OMC?

... Also, do any of you know how to bleed an OMC trim/tilt system? Mine is stuck. Thanks.

You live fairly close to the ONLY guy who ever fixed my OMC the first time, every time.

None to cheap, but less than having to redo stuff from somewhere else.

Sturgeon Creek at Lake Anna.

If you don't mind the drive.

The owner is Jeff, awesome and honest.

It's worth the drive.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

I take it your 1300 rpm short coming wasn't resolved with a smaller prop.

As for your trim, it's self bleeding. Check for the fluid level with the motor in the up position. Oil should be level with the bottom of the fill plug thread. Loosely install the fill plug and cycle unit in 10 second squirts (adding fluid as require). A minimum of 5 complete cycles is required.

Thanks, guys!

Added fluid, and the tilt works fine. Need to find the leak.

Spoke with Francis Guy today, and plan to take the boat to him later this week.

Again, thanks for the info.

Tony,

Francis and the boys down there are by far the best people in the entire marine world as far as I'm concerned. I can't tell you how honest those guys are. The only bad thing for me now is I have to take my boat down the street at Colton's because I now own a Yammie 4 stroke. I woned Evinrude's for 10 years. Francis told me he absolutley will not work on them. Maybe a legal thing, I'm not sure. Let me know about you experience and hopefully we can hook-up in
