Went to priest yeseryday. Great day fishing over 30 on buzzbait.
Several in the 3# range.
But on way back, hole shot lots of vibration and she wont plane. Idle down and she starts making a muffled thump, every so often. almost like a backfire.
Everytime she thumps a small amount of white smoke from under cowling. Get back to ramp, put her in neutral...go back to put in gear and shifter is real tight, finally get shifter in gear position but no gears forward or reverse.
Whats your thoughts? Bad linkage? Spun Hub?
I try to fix these things myself, last month rebuilt my trim pump for $40 verses a best case qoute of $300. Any advise would be appreciated.
By the way...Its a 97 Evinrude 225. Thanks

Just a thought, but that model was notorious for blowing up. I've seen them blow up, with the exact symptoms you have mentioned.

Hey guys thanks for the thoughts.
Dropped the lower unit oil this afternoon. Oil looked perfect, no water, good color......but big chunck of metal came out the drain hole. Looks like she coughed a gear for no darn reason. Maybe just the main drive shaft, but i have a feeling entire lower unit maybe gone. Darn boats are nothing but money pits.
Fix one thing out goes another.
Anybody out there know much about lower unit rebuilds and how difficult a job it might be. Hit me back. I figure I got all winter to work on it so might as well try to save a little cash and try it myself.
Agian thanks for the help.

Go to BBC.com and in the Express Boat forum, you will see the moderator for this forum. His name is Jesse. He might have some remans on hand for you. I got one from him back this summer for my 1995 150 Intruder. Mine done the same thing you are saying when I lost my lower unit back in the spring. I believe his email address is jrpromax@hotmail.com You might look on there under the parts and find one. Also, one more thing in the Evinrude forum is a man that goes by "geracaseman", he is very knowledgeable about lower units for Evinrudes. He might be able to help as well.
