Yamaha 9.9hp 4-stroke
I recently took ownership of a beaten up 1978 Lancer 28. The engine however appears to be in good condition. It's a 2002 Yamaha 9.9hp regular shaft, set up for remote control from the cockpit. One of the other boat owners came over yesterday and told me that I should replace the water pump immediately. The boat has been on the hard for some time and my sense is that the motor has not been used much. Now, trying to get the boat into the water in as cost effective a way as possible (and haveing already racked up a substantial bill on paint, coating and a bunch of other stuff), that's the last thing I need to hear.
Any thoughts on his comment/these engines in general? Oh, and by the way, if anyone has a owner's manual they would be willing to share by way of fax, that would be great.
