You might want to do a search for marineengine. They have lots of help for different engines.

Mercury sells chrysler parts however they are becoming obsolete. Is this a magna system or an alternator system? Email me and I can give you a parts and service manual for a 45 HP chrysler which covers both magna and alternator ignitions. Let me know what parts you are looking for as well. Like I said some are around but hard to find. Keep an eye on ebay and search there using chrysler outboards. My email is [email protected]

I had a 15hp Chrysler OB.... had to simply toss it... no one would even TOUCH the thing. No parts... bad motor... etc... and that one even worked somewhat. Just needed the parts for the pull cord... nothing.

good luck on your journey!

Twin City Outboard has parts and will work on them. If the motor is siezed I would not mess with it. If it runs they are simple to work on. Mine is 40 years old and runs like a champ. Their HP is over rated where a 35 Merc or evinrude will get you more speed. Resale on it is nothing. I doubt you would even get a bid on ebay unless you part it out. I got a complete lower unit for my 45HP for 50 bucks on ebay and have been running it for 5 years now with no problems.

      As usual Curt, thanks for all the reports you provide to us folks that only get up to LOW 4-5 times/year.  Coming up again for the MEA weekend, fishing Thursday-Saturday.  Looks like Thursday's going to be nice with warmer temps and WSW winds.  If we get the heavy WNW winds on Saturday, is the LP area fishable.  Seems like the more west it is the comfort level goes up dramatically.  Bringing the kids this trip, so there not real big fans of the 4-5 footers if you know what I mean.  Hope to see ya Thursday, we'll be in a 2150 Lund and 18.5 Alumacraft.

      These fish came of the feeding flat.
    • monstermoose78
      I like finding aggressive crappies and those feeding flats normally have more aggressive crappies plus some big gills mixed in. 
    • Rick
      This is great advice as well @monstermoose78. I will add that another reason crappies suspend over a deep basin is because of the plankton rising and dropping from and back to the mud basin below based on light levels.

      Got back yesterday from a week at my shack. Tough conditions. Lots of rain and over 6" of snow. My buddy and I saw 28 grouse and got 15. They were pretty wild and had to put the chase on alot of them. Got pretty wet running after them and snow falling on your head. Had to chainsaw our way out to the trucks thanks to the heavy wet snow.

      There are lots of options and they all work better for some than others for each individual situation.     I use a mix of single rod cases (hard tube with reel bag on the end), the Bunk box Rick has (works for my laker rods), and break down fly rod case that I custom cut the foam on to fit my in-lines.   Basically, make sure your rods aren’t too long for your house!  From there you could even build an insert into your tub and line it with foam.  Custom cut the interior to fit your rods your way.  Ever go the the Thorne Brothers potable mods gathering.  You could get some ideas there for sure!

      I’m in for 2nd season also.  Looking forward to sharing a good hunt with both new and old friends.

      I am hoping to get the boat out on the lake this Thursday. Looks like it is going to be in the upper 50's!

      I use breakdown shotgun cases each one will  fit 2-3 rod reel combos easily. Fit very nicely in my fish trap pros and otters protect very well.  I have 4 of them lable each one  with the species setup in each case stack them on garage bench. Grab the right combos for species being sought after. Only draw back is I have to break handles down on reels. You could probably cut some foam out to make it work easier I have just got use to looseing handles on reels.. My free fall and trip wire work in them also so yes inline setups will work.
