    Default Optimax

    Larry....Kelly Kidwell is a nephew of Kerry Kidwell. Kerry resides in Calif and has come back a couple years when we run StLouis. Kerry was big in the west coast circuit some years ago. Like some of us, he has gained a few years!!

    I dont have Kerry's phone number but Kelly is 314-707-5432

    The starting thing is the biggest drawback on the optimax. I dont care what kinda batterys ya use, and weve tried em all. Until Mercury makes some internal changes and/or the PCM it will still not fire off the beach.

    Lotsa props used last year, most directly from Merc itself. Kelly is close to Fred H up there in Wisc.

    See ya Pitboss 77

    Default starter

    I did some checking and found out that the starter has a reduction gear drive.
    Mercury needs to change the starters on racing engines. The reduction drive starters are probably OK on stock engines.
