So here is my sad story....Bought an 84 Montauk with 84 Oil Injected Yamaha Labor Day Weekend. This was my first boat I have purchased ever (Grew up on boats as a kid) and was ecstatic...had everything redone including the all the wood stripped and then 8 coats of Varnish, new Stern Seat from Anderson Mfg, New Bow Cushion....

Finally got it into the water while on Vacation last week. Second day out, changed fuel tanks and wham...while running down the lake the engine quit. Come to find out, there was water in the fuel and it caused an explosion in the lower cylinder (Tech said there is a hole in the piston about the diameter of my pinky finger).

He said basically requires a new Powerhead, given I just dumped a ton of money into buying and restoring my new found love....I can't say that I have the means for the repairs. That being said, I am looking for a Used Yamaha 90 Hp two stroke that I could swap out and use the same controls, etc.

Anyone with ideas on where to locate one or if you have one, please do let me know

Check out this post you may be able to talk owner into just selling the engine.

I don't think he sold it yet? Location is Conway, SC though!

Ps...you can use the controls on a Mercury as well.
