Said oh well here we go again yanked the triples out took motor out of boat split the cases BAD CRANK BEARING SHIT!!!!!! so thats it boys don't think I'm going to put this back together try something new for the bug Sux because this 1200 ran really good but if I want to play with you hot dogs need to step it up

Sorry to hear about your boat Forrest because I know you work hard on that little toy. Let me know if I can help you. I think the little GPR got nervous about my little redoo. Todd
