    Re: E-Tec, Optimax, 4 Stroke? Looking at 115hp range

    Noel i think they may machine out the old sleeve thru the top than press in the new sleeve, those big scratches are from me being heavy handed with the micrometer i was using the thimble but it was doing it up to tight

    Andy i would love a 150hp etec but they are 6 cylinders more transom weight

    Funds are in the bank, What would u guys do? i called the shop they still have the powerhead i tried to negotiate $2500 from $2800 it comes with 3 months warranty not that it will be of any use for me, this only leaves $1000 for my trailer build

    would u try rebuild my powerhead for $2000 or would u just buy the complete powerhead for $2500 knowing it could be second hand rather than rebuilt, i am being told it was rebuilt for a customer than walked away from the deal and it has ever since sat on the shelf

    I personally would keep shopping for a complete running used motor, but then, if you can somehow guarantee that it was rebuilt properly, and not just pieced together from other motors, it might be OK.

    There are a few i considered Noel

    Optimax had been rust seized than pulled apart repaired and assembled 50 hours put on it $2250

    i just don't have a big budget there for not a lot of buying power

    chuck all your cash into the trailer, and then see what finance option is available and will give you a wider selection of motors, perhaps repayments are low these days, not sure.

    is selling your other boat an option , sounds like your uncertain which way to go on the motor selection. might pay to leave that to last, good things come to those who wait.

    Re: E-Tec, Optimax, 4 Stroke? Looking at 115hp range

    Yeah i thought about building the trailer with the cash i have than sell my smaller boat at the beginning of next summer to fund the engine for big boat, i honestly cant see my self doing much work on these 38-50c days if i get some lights rigged up i may work at night but i will have bugs glued to the hull

    Will likely have some cash coming in in around 3 to 4 weeks i am thinking of buying the Etec rebuild kit just i wont have enough cash to buy the conrod, new cylinder sleeve or have the block welded but it will be a leep i still think the etec is the right road to take considering i already have it

    Re: E-Tec, Optimax, 4 Stroke? Looking at 115hp range

    sounds like the go , keep ticking over steady and you be on the home stretch soon enough.. youve got all the gear waa for the ETEC .

    Re: E-Tec, Optimax, 4 Stroke? Looking at 115hp range

    Couple of Opti's on Gumtree but they are going for double of what i will have i have tried looking for another engine but nothing is coming up that looks decent for the amount i will have

    Re: E-Tec, Optimax, 4 Stroke? Looking at 115hp range

    Have been trying to find another engine but can't find anything even near a decent engine for under $2000, 2k gets ya a vintage 70's 80's 140hp i listed the etec for parts but only got two people wanting parts

    can i run different brand pistons in the etec? 3 OEM 1 WSM?

    what about a running 3 OEM conrods with one WSM conrod?

    what is on my ind about repairing the etec is if i spend all this cash and it blows up again i will be at a huge loss, if i am to repair the etec i will be looking to order the parts this week or next week
