User Guide To Outboard Motor Service & Repairs

An outboard motor is a gasoline powered detachable engine with a propeller attached to a boat. It consists of an engine, gearbox and propeller or jet drive. Aside from providing propulsion to the watercraft, it also provides steering control for the direction of the thrust, since they are designed to pivot over their mountings. Compared to inboard engines, outboard motors can easily be removed for storage and repairs.

There are certain factors that need to be considered when buying an outboard motor. The power requirements of the motor should always complement the type of boat and the role it was built for. Overpowering is dangerous while underpowering may deem it incapable of performing. The length of the shaft should also be appropriate for the size of the boat. If the shaft is too long, it will create unnecessary drag which will impair performance and fuel economy. If the shaft is too short, the motor will be prone to ventilation which can cause damages.

Several boat repair companies have websites where they post boat parts for replacement and services such as cleaning and repairing outboard motors. They provide quotes on their websites for comparison with other services. Customers and boat owners are advised to seek the assistance of a recognized boat repair shop for repairing boats and outboard motors.

In Australia, each State and Territory has different laws regarding the licensing of commercial and recreational boats. Each State and Territory has different requirements that a boat operator needs to meet in order get the boat into the water and sail safely around the Australian coast. Boat licenses are an important requirement before a person can sail in open waters. It is best to obtain the proper boat licenses regardless of the vessel's size and attending a course and license.

Outboard motor tips

  • Always check the fuel line, fuel primer bulb and the fuel line fittings to be sure that they are pliable.
  • The tank vent should always be free from corrosion or damage and should aspirate properly.
  • Maintain the battery by checking the wiring connection and harness for any kind of corrosion and damage regularly.
  • After taking the boat for a ride, flush out the engine and empty the carburetor by disconnecting the fuel line and allowing the engine to run out of fuel.
  • Lubricate all moving parts such as carburetor valves, throttle and shift cables.
  • Before transporting batteries, always make sure that these are disconnected and the harness is unplugged from the motor.
  • Recharge the batteries at least once a month when not in use to make sure that they are in full strength.
  • At the end of the season, make sure to drain the fuel tanks and flush the engine with fresh, clean water.
  • Apply water-resistant grease to all moving parts of the motor and use storage oil to prevent rust on pistons, bearings, cylinder and crankshaft.
  • Apply Vaseline to the terminal and store in a dry place to maintain the new look.
