    Yeah it was kinda hard for me to believe when it happened...no noises before or after, just an abrupt stop of everything. I figured I had broken the crank or something. My flywheel would rotate about .25-.5" in either direction, but that's it. When I dropped the lower, everything was fine. I have launched a rod before, and it made a helluva racket.

    Top or bottom main may have wadded up.Those old oil hoses do break! And the mains will squeal like a pig (but only for a little bit)

    Took off the CLE lower unit yesterday. I was praying to the merc gods but they didn't hear me very well. I hit the key and nothing but click. then again click and a few more tries in hopes they would hear me but nothing. Seems like my 2.4 is locked up. So i either don't boat with that boat anymore this year and get the 2.4 rebuilt or I pull out a 10k bill and go get a 300 drag motor and i can continue to go river ripping. Dang it.
