    Posted: 04/12/2017 at 12:17am
Just purchased a 1989 Hurricane deck boat. Fiberglass hull three V hulls I am not familiar with these boats so looking for help. It has only a captains chair and console. Home made bench seat and storage across rear. Seems solid , some damaged  skirting, (dents) has a 1990 150 mercury that runs nice. I paid a whopping 1200 for it. I tried to buy a bimini from Pontoon stuff but it is only 84" inches wide so had to order it off E bay. Trying to decide what seats and am not sure how it was laid out originally/it is 19 ' long and has a roller trailer. After I get it cleaned up I will post a pic or two. looking fwd to getting it ready to fish in Lake Gaston, Va

Well got the boat running and everything is good. I am concerned about the roller trailer. The boat is touching the trailer fenders. There are 2 rollers at the stern that are not under the boat. I am going to put it in the water, reload further aft and move the winch and fwd rubber to fit new position. I see no adjustments on the rollers. I Will go out and take a couple of pictures and put them on shortly. Just wondering if I am doing the right thing.

That looks really wonky! How about a farther away pic to see the "tilt" of the trailer with boat on it hooked up to the tow vehicle. You don't want to be too far back.....

Any one familiar with mercury engines? I have  a 1993 150 SRX and I was on the lake and the alarm sounded. Came home and found oil dripping out of bottom carbs. Took off the diffuser or whatever its called in front of the carbs and the bottom carbs had raw oil in the intake . After investigating the on board oil tank was empty (had a gallon in it) tank on engine was near empty. Glad I was still using premix 6 gallon tank. I found the 2 psi check valve in the oil line coming from the on board tank was bad and oil was pouring out the vent which happened to be right at the intake for the bottom carbs. My problem is the part # 22-42425 is no longer available. Any Idea if there is a new number or maybe where I can get the new valve. I cleaned the old one with carb cleaner and i blow thru it and no air will come out the vent port so not sure if its OK now. Sorry for  the long post but I need help/..LOL

Look at marineengine.com. or marineengineparts.com. I have got a bunch of parts for my '79 Johnson 140, from both of these sites.

Looks like you are missing a digit on the part number.  Can you look again and see if the last digit is missing?  

Here is a link to a list of parts suppliers that might be able to help.  BAM is usually pretty good about getting parts.

Thanks for the replies. After much thought I removed the oil injection system and will premix. Had to purchase a blank off kit, removed the oil pump and blanked the hole. Then a 1/4" pipe plug for the crankcase and connected the blue and black wires together to silence alarm. Runs good and no more leaks and I know my engine is getting proper mix.
