Oil leaks suck to find, but given the rate it's leaking this should be an easy one. Clean up the motor/bilge with Simple Green or similar and have someone run it while you look for the source(s) with...

Not sure you're looking at the tranny cooler on that boat. The cooler is inline with the 1 1/4" raw water intake hose before the raw water pump itself, and not on the transmission. You should be able...

If they are the "football" style remotes, they have probably failed. I have had two fail due to bad design and waterproofing issues from the factory. I have since gone with the newer "cmrc" series...

IIRC, the trans cooler is in front of the pump (lake side versus motor side) on that model and would not catch the broken blades. Would check thermostat housing and use a rod to clean out the exhaust...

Going to guess a broken actuator there. Lencos are motorized screw-type actuators so I would assume a portion of the drive screw has broken away inside the housing allowing the tab to extend but not...

The waterspot issue is legitimate. I have a navy deck and hull from the factory, and it's a constant battle. That said, I love the color and it's worth it. Re: resale, this is an older boat so you're...

Not sure exactly how you are wired, but if you're blowing the fuse under higher loads, you are most likely overloading that circuit. Go with large, fused amp power cables directly from the battery as...

Ok, bit of good news there. If it still looks that way, then you're probably not looking at damaged water passages in the block. A rms is way easier to deal with.

I thought that big piece looked like pressure plate, but was like "nah, can't be." There's where your busted bell housing came from. Did they do rear main seal when the plate was replaced?

I'd head back to the mechanic and give him the chance to make it right. Bare minimum, he owes you an inspection and new impeller.

Go for a 205 with an upgraded engine option. Had a 97 lt1 and the power/hole shot versus my 93 with the 351 was significantly better. +45 HP and Efi is a big deal.
