Hello all, A source of great info in the past, I'm posing my questions about a top bearing replacement on a 2005 30hp 2-stroke Johnson here for all you gurus and shade tree veterans. I've got a high-rpm rattle/grind coming from the powerhead, and I've settled on a diagnosis of bad top bearing. I'm not 100% sure as I've never encountered this issue before, so I'm thinking of taking it to a shop to have it diagnosed. For anyone who's ever dealt with this, particularly on a small 2-stroke, what kind of cost am I looking at to get this fixed at a shop? What kind of labor time is reasonable to expect? If I plan to go the professional route, will it be better just to start shopping for a cheapo replacement outboard? Also, should I go ahead with fixing it myself, consulting the appropriate maintenance manual, of course? I'm a relatively experienced tinkerer having had the lower unit apart on this motor, disassembling carbs, replacing electrical components and other regular maintenance. I know my way around a motor fairly well, but I've never messed with a crankshaft bearing. Thanks for the help!
