Given the photo, I would highly recommend disassembling the entire engine and treating it.

spark plug is rusted in cyl #1, engine runs but plug hasnt been changed for 3 years. Now that its my boat, I'd like to fix that.. I tried wd 40..afraid to break it off..

how do I know if I have a direct drive or v drive? where can I read up on these?

I'd like to try and change the impeller as well..I think I need more than wd 40..

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
