Default New Old Guy

Hello all,

I have a 2006 1800MX that has 250 hours that has been sitting covered in my garage for almost ten years and I'm looking for help on what I should do first to try to get her up and running this summer.

Welcome Aboard!

Drain the fuel tank and refill with new gas.
Replace the raw water impeller
Change drive lube
Change engine oil and filter
Change fuel filter
Inspect belts and hoses and replace accordingly.
Replace the battery.
Enjoy.

I'd add that you may want to check to see if you have a seized engine or stuck rings prior to hitting the starter.
I recommend that you remove the plugs and squirt some penetrating oil in the cylinders. With the plugs out, turn the engine with a breaker bar. If it turns by hand then turn it over a few times with the starter to get the engine oil pump primed. You may also want to do compression check while the plugs are out.

Thank you both for the reply!!

I just ordered a scope camera from amazon, so I'm going to pull the plugs take a look put in a table spoon or so of penetrating oil and see if she is seized up or not.

What are the odd of the carb needing a rebuild?

Pretty good especially if ethanol fuel was last used.

Odds are good you'll need a carb rebuild. I think I would want to anyway. But you may be able to get through the season and do the rebuild in the fall.
If the boat starts that will be a good sign. If it runs rich, lean, or floods easy then you'll need a rebuild.
Did you take a look at the fuel screen at the carb?
Let us know how the first start goes. Maybe you have been living right and will get lucky.

Don't forget about the trailer.
New tires
New Brake Fluid
Jack it up and turn the wheels to make sure the brakes are not rusted to the drums.
New winch strap and stern straps.
