:clapThank you Outboard Rebuilders.com; I just wanted to say thank you to Outboard Rebuilders.com of Milton, Fl for a job well done. These people did a remarkable job on a motor rebuild for me, and did it fastand at a very reasonable price. It is not often that you get what you are promised, but they were fast, good & reasonable priced. If you need a outboard motor rebuilt I would strongly urge you to use Outboard Rebuilders.com.

fighterpilot (1/27/2010)How about a location or phone number--guess I could look in the phone book. Thanks
I'd look around the forum for and ask around for some second opinions before I'd take the word of somebody posting their 1st ever post on the forum.

I pass by there every day. Located right by McDonalds at the Avalon Exit of I-10.



They have a website: www.outboardrebuild.com for those who need to look into them a little further.



Don't know much about them. But there are kudos to them on thehulltruth site as well.



Local business!

If this is the shop previously named, "Northwest Florida Outboards" and I am sure it is because of the Jim and Valerie mentioned... They are quick only because they have to rebuild the same engines over and over due to the operator "cold seizing" there engine in august with a 1.5 mile no wake zone or "detinating their pistons". I did all these things to my engine 5 times in 6 months. Very Bad Experience!!!

Separate entity, nwfloridaoutboard.com is not the company that built the motor from this thread, no business relation whatsoever. We are located at avalon blvd and I-10 at exit 22 in milton, FL with complete machine shop and no "jim and valerie" here at this facility. The company being spoken about here is OutboardRebuild.com. We build over 200 motors per year and service another 400+ per year and it's not easy to make everyone happy. Thanks to the originator and congrats to the bashers of someone that's happy with the work described above...

Routine work--One of my 200HP Johnsons, 1992 vintage, is a challenge to start. Don't know what the problem is. Crank, and Crank, squeeze ball, choke, than all of a sudden it fires off. I know from experience must have good Cranking RPMs to get the spark to them, but the port one starts, when the starboard one won't. Carbs all rebuilt last spring and new plugs all around. Heads, pulled off, milled down, new gaskets and water pumps. Fished the summer with it but starboard engine picky to start when cold. OK after once started. Mechanic that did all the work has some health issues now and I don't believe is working OBs now.

If you would rather hide behind your computer and not return our calls when we are trying to resolve your issues then you are wanting drama more than you want to go boating. We have saved all your posts where you are admitting to us attempting to reach you to resolve your issues and you choose not to call us back to get them resolved. After over 2 years you had a problem with your motor we fixed it for free at no charge to you under warranty with no questions asked. Our website states that you are responsible for the shipping just like everyone else that has any warranty issues. Your fuel pump was producing under 2 lbs of fuel pressure which we document and your timer base was intermittent firing across between 4 and 5 cylinders which we also document and bench tested out of specs and "no good". Both of those parts were obviously used and not good and undoubtedly the cause of failure from ethanol eating your rubber diaphram in your vro (fuel pump) which we have here and we still took your motor completely apart and bored the bad detanated cylinder which we also saved the piston showing lean fuel condition and documented as such as well. Then we reassembled your motor with a new piston in that hole along with all new rings in the other holes and rebuilt your carburetors, all for free and under warranty of course once again with no questions asked. The only money out of pocket for you was the shipping and we also gave you a good timer base that bench tested perfectly within specs and a good fuel pump that produced fuel pressure within specs also, of course for free. You spent $3,557.00 with us to rebuild your motor on 10/27/2007 yes 2007 which $357 was shipping one way and we payed the shipping for the other direction and we just took care of your warranty issue 100% at no cost to you after well over 2 years except for shipping, and of course the cost for you to replace your bad parts that are outside of the rebuild of the motor.You actually spent $3,200 with us for the rebuild well over 2 years ago. Spark plugs are not included for free with warranty work after the motor is damaged internally by your vro pump and neither are the parts that cause the failure, in fact, all other rebuild companies would not even rebuild or repair the bad cylinder for free when your vro pump caused the failure under warranty, which we did for free. We appreciate the opportunity to explain the REAL situation at hand to everyone here on the board with your issues and we continually are happy to assist you with any other problems you are having, but you have to quit hiding from us when we keep leaving you messages so that we can help to get your boat back on the water if that is your goal in the end of course, to go boating. Thank you Robert Chadeayne from Pomona CA. Staff @ OutboardRebuild.com.
