    Do it yourself. Go to your public library and check out a repair manual for your motor. Go to an auto parts store (NAPA, Auto Zone, O'Reilys', etc) and get the rebuild kit. Follow instructions and you'll be okay... or you could pay the guy 75.00 to 150.00 to do it for you.

    You could always ask him, also. !00.00 is not unreasonable, and a tad low, if you get the rebuild kit with it.

    i got it fixed myself :big_smile: i pulled plugs they were fouled bad cleaned them put em back in and i found some loose wires that had rattled loose i guess tightened everything down snuggly and looked her over real good and hooked the muffs to her and it ran fine unlike before so we took it to the lake and i unloaded it and as soon as i got out of no wake i hammered it and it jumped right out of hole like she always has and i ran back and forth down the lake for about 10 minutes and she runs good i stopped and planed off like 4 times just to make sure jets werent clogged hopefully she keeps running good we going to lake tonight to find out thanks anyways guys

    don't forget, you need a fuel filter in there somewhere

    Even though it runs fine on the muffs doesn't mean it will run fine in the water once the prop has a load on it - especially with a fuel delivery/dirty carb problem. It takes more fuel to move the prop under load.
