Question about Boating

1 Answer

I have a 1988 15 HP Gamefisher motor. Every now and again the motor will knock. The last time I had it out the lower unit knocked and I lost the forward gear. The engine reved up and started to smoke. I can get into neutral but the shift lever will not go into reverse. Does anyone know what could be wrong?

hi i think my last post was lost for some reason., but here it is again, the knocking sound you can hear is probably the big end bearings worn, these are the shells that go between the conrod and the crank shaft , it sounds like they have worn either by lack of oil at some time, or just through age and use, this is also normally accompanied by low oil pressure light coming on but not always, 2 options you have are, another engine, or repair the bearings , but this will depend on how bad the crank has been damaged by the worn bearings..hope this helps please vote and rate thanks
