    if it wasn't for bad luck i wouldn't have none:angry: to make a long story short
    after letting my son take the boat out !!! it came back with a funny nock in the motor found that it was a rod bearing?? so i thought i would bye another boat while iwas working on this one so i can get on the river
    guess what it wouldn't run right so i had it taken to the repair shop to have it looked at and i get a call 2 weeks later saying that the crank was bad so if it wasn't for bad luck i wouldn't have none:embarassed: so if anybody
    might have or know some one with a good used crank shaft for a

    84/90s mercury 150 please let me know thanks elvis

    I don’t know if they’re still in business, but I’m sure they would be able to refer you to the right place if they don’t have it.

    Be easy on the fly wheel and don't hit it with a hammer or any thing to loosen it because it will knock the magnets loose and those things are expensive,. Been there and done that.:wink:

    Elvis, I used a harmonic balancer puller on mine to pull the flywheel- not sure if that would work for your motor or not but its a thought.

    Branden that won't work on that fly wheel. He can purchase one off e-bay for about 50 bucks. Or do like I did and build one.

    yeah it is pretty easy to make your own just find a scrap peice of aluminum or steel and drill some holes and a few bolts and washers..will work like a charm. dont waste your time with one of those slide hammer pullers:eek:oooh:.....i messed with one of them for about an hour one night and finally just made my own puller. that damn thing just didnt have enough umphh to get it off of there

    Jeff that still won't work on a mariner or merc fly wheel. They have a big hole in the center of the flywheel and recessed inside that hole is the nut. You have threads that are made inside the flywheel in a large circle that a round pipe screws down with fine threads, Then across the pipe is a flat piece with a large nut on it and a big bolt that screws down to met the top of the crank and when it meets it starts pushing up on the fly wheel. This is where it gets serious that flywheel has magnets inside it and I think they are 5 or 6 of them. If you hit that flywheel more then likely you will break a magnet or more. Those magnets are 55 bucks a piece and the stuff you glue them with is outragous also.. If you can find a used flywheel it will cost you about 200 bucks.

    The Mercury puller looks simalar to the A/C clutch hub pullers for automotive, just a little, or should I say alot bigger.
