Default 1994 2000SC Refurbishment

http://theboat92.shutterfly.com/pictures/202

Finally the weather and my day off reached an agreement and I got to spend about 2 hours inspecting her. She has been sitting since 2006, only 402 Hrs, and is in really good shape. She needs a Really GOOD cleaning, inside and out, Floors are sound and upholstery is in great shape just dirty. The interior of the cabin is also in great shape just needs a Really good Cleaning. Paint is fading, bottom paint is in sad shape but, the good news is it comes off with my finger nail, under the bottom paint the gel coat is shiny and smooth. I am guessing when they put it on they didn’t prep it correctly. The engine needs replaced, I am going to get a Long Block and do it myself. And the Hatch window is cracked and needs replaced. And a New battery. That’s all I found so far. Like most “Project Boats” as I dig into this I am sure some other repairs will show themselves. The goal is to have her in the water by April looking like New! And running like a swiss watch. Oh almost forgot. The trailer just needs a few rollers replaced. Not sure about the wiring but looks good.

1st on my list is to buy a power washer and get her cleaned up.

Stay tuned for pic’s as I dig myself into this. LOL

Sounds like a winter of project work... It does look to be in sound shape, but you aren't kidding about needing a good cleaning.

You're braver than I am, Todd, I'd have walked away from that one.

Ya going to remove all that nasty carpet?

I hope I don't have to remove the carpet. Going to try to use a Carpet Cleaner 1st.(Like the ones you can rent from Lowes) It's really in good shape and the Boat is sound. If I had kept the 92 2100SC, I would have had to replace the Engine anyway.

Sold my 92 2100SC yesterday, and I pick up the 94 2000SC tomarrow.

I've never changed a Outdrive, maybe when I get ready (Jan or Feb) you can give me some advise.

As long as the floors and stringers are in good shape with no rot, then most everything else can be cleaned and fixed. I'd suggest starting with the boat and mechanicals first, then get into deep cleaning. Of course a cursory cleaning would help out, but I wouldn't go crazy with compunding and shampooing until the end of the project. Just my .02

Advice? Sure - have someone else do it!

Kidding aside, don't think I can be much help. I've watched mine being pulled but haven't done it myself. Would be a good idea to fab up a stand for it, on rollers if possible. Move the stand into position under the drive, unbolt it, slide onto the stand, push it outta the way.

Are you going to pull the drive and the engine, then set about the task of cleaning everything up?

I have pulled mine once. It was not that hard but it does help to have a friend to assist.
To pull you just need to put shifter in FWD WOT.
Disconnect Speedo hose (if equipped)
Disconnect trim cylinder pins and move out of way
Remove 6 nuts on outdrive
Now pull her off being careful to catch the drive shaft when it flops down on you.

To install, pretty much the same though you should check alignment with an alignment tool (about $80 for one)
Replace everything that needs it (gimbal, bellows, shift cable, u-joints, all o-rings and gaskets, etc..)
Now coat drive shaft splines with spline grease
Lift drive up and gently slide drive shaft into gimbal until fully seated
Install all 6 nuts and torque to spec (think it was 55lbs?)
Re-attach speedo hose (if equiped)
Re-attach trim cylinders and pins
You can now put shifter back in Nuetral
Fill it up with outdrive oil and check/fill reservior (if equiped)

Now go for a test drive

I think I got all the steps, may have missed something though so double (or triple) check me with the service manual :-)

just picked her up and almost messed up coming out of the driveway. Gezzzzzz Narrow dirt driveway and narrow old country road with ditches on both sides. thought I had cleared the ditch turned onto the road and BAM the right tire of the trailer went in the ditch and bounced back out. Small dent in the rim but still holding air. No damage to the boat, thankfully. To quote Walter “Dumb Ass” !!! Collected my thoughts and went to the local car wash. Took all the leaves and twigs out, vacuumed the cockpit and then washed it with the wand. Carpet cleaned up nicely but barely made a dent in the upholstery. This weekend I think I’ll mix up some OxiClean and Mr Clean magic erasers and a ton of elbow grease and see if that works on the upholstery.

Hooked up a fresh battery to her yesterday and started checking things out, Outdrive goes down but wont come back up, and most importantly the radio doesn't work. ran out of day light so I haven't checked the fuses yet. Crossing my fingers that thats all it is. not sure about the outdrive! I hate elect problems!!!!! Grrrrrrrr!
