It won't slide until it's rotated against the normal...

Remove the spark plugs and see if it will crank. Put some kind of covering on the seats and carpet or leave the engine cover closed, in the event that it does crank. If it does, it didn't want to...

How did they describe the boat when you discussed it, and was it in writing? If so, talk to a lawyer.

Parts Express has binding posts like those, as well as many others. Personally, I think I would go for the kind with plastic knobs, to prevent anything from causing a short.

I don't remember the 2000 line having more than a bi-metal switch for the transmission.

Did the dealer tell them that a diagnostic code showed up? If so, ask which code.

Look at the plug for the fuel pump- if it looks like the plastic has melted, even if it's only a little, buy a replacement. It's available as a repair kit, from many auto parts stores. Make sure to...

Photos! Lots of photos!

The installation may have everything to do with this and the fact that the amps are overheating is a good place to start looking. Measure the resistance of the speaker wires...

His problems with MC warranty were caused by him- MC is very easy to deal with, although they do demand that dealers stay on top of their paperwork.

Do you have a parts store that sells GM parts? Go there. It's not marine-specific. Take the old one with you.

Why does it matter where the boat is? The pump works in or out of the water- waiting for oil to drain is like watching paint dry. If you want time to have a few drinks, it's OK, but...

You'll get all of the old oil if you stick it in the drain hose.

Using gravity is a waste of time. Get it done and get back on the water!
