Oh I forgot to mention my flush plug is frozen. It won't unscrew for the life of me. I asked them at the shop about it, he recommended I just leave it as is. I probably should have told him to take it off anyway since its obvious for me it would be easier to flush that way. I think my bracket can indeed lift up, I will have to take a look because I never tried it. I will figure out a way to do it without actually taking it off the boat all the time. I am wondering how long it took for this motor to get all the corrosion built up in it. Plus with that flush plug being frozen, I would not doubt its been a very long time since its been flushed. I used it all last summer and never flushed it because I could not get that plug off, never realized I could run it in a bucket of water or I would have done it at least a few times. Well its going back on my boat Sunday and I am going to run it.
