@ $50 for a new one, i will try but don't you think after it's been fatigued at a bend it will have a propensity to bend again?

also, can you confirm that "neutral" on the shift handle is straight up?

just got my hands on an older, neglected 3HP 2-cyl with a filthy carb, could some one please direct me to a good source for parts?

I was able to get parts for my Johnson at the local outboard shop. A serial number helps cutting down on the number of trips back and forth.

Are the gaskets on the carb all dried out? You might be able to take the bowl off and soak it in some carb cleaner and then blow the sh!t out of it and give it a try.
