Re: Battery Box Strap

Dear group - I wanted to let everyone know that all straps are spoken for. Thank you for everyone's interest. I wish AGM had more stock on hand which would have facilitated a bigger group buy. While the price per strap is higher I would encourage any who are in need of a high quality original batter...

Re: Battery Box Strap

I heard from AGM today. They have enough stock parts to fabricate 10 straps. I had them quote a price for more than 10 straps. Because of minimum order requirements of their parts suppliers it will significantly raise the cost per strap to go over 10 straps so I capped the order at 10 straps. Should...

Re: 2006 Mercury 60-HP FOURSTROKE: Water in Oil

The failure of a head gasket is a common reason for water contaminating the oil in any old engine including cars. I would recommend purchasing a new head gasket and replacing it. You will need a manual with the head bolt torque specifications and a torque wrench. When the head bolts are re-torqued t...

Re: Battery Box Strap

Well I just finished speaking with Sue at Twin Cities Marine and the original strap is still available. Current Price is $57.50 + shipping. So it looks like ordering from AGM will be worth the effort if there is significant interest (i.e I can get 10 straps committed). Jimh - Thanks for adding the p...
