thanks Skipper. its amazing to me how much helpful information i have found on the internet over the years in regards to repairing or replacing just about anything. so, in return, i like to post information that may be helpful to someone that comes along in the future with the same problem. (and they will)

I do know that I will fix this problem just like we fix all the problems in our lives. The great thing about this fix is that there is no time frame like there is at work. In other words it does not have to be out by 5pm. I once had an automobile with a bent crank shaft. I took it to a very old and wise machinist. He fixed it so that it would run "true". I installed it using over sized main bearings and it ran smoothly from that point forward. I do not do engine tech or mechanic work for a living but i am perfectly stress free, happy, and content, working in my garage on an old boat engine. (my nirvana)

i see you have a new FX Cruiser. If you ride in salt water like I do, i have a bit of advice. Get a water wand with an adjustable head. Rinse the inner hull, motor etc, with fresh water after every ride. Make it part of the routine. I have a story, i will share later, of how my interior hull became filled with salt water.

i have started using "Salt Away". The reviews are mixed, but it may help matters.
