    I pick this 1979 Thompson Boat up and it has been sitting for about 10 years.
    My question is how do i go about starting the engine? i did pull the plugs and spay oil down the cylinders and slowly turned the engine over by hand it seemed to trun over just fine anything else i should do?
    Thanks for any help.........

    pull off the out drive and put a hose in the hole were the water gos in the gimbal housing
    this will alow you to go through the out drive also the water pump in the out drive neds to be replaced

    Remove the exhaust riser and make sure it is not corroded. If it is, the engine will run when you first start it but will fill with water after it is stopped. Also, give it a tuneup and oil change.
