IF you haven't already had this taken care of, I'll offer my suggestion. As was mentioned before, if you're going to take it anywhere in the La Crosse area, Team Marine is THE place to go. Andy(the owner)is a straight shooter, fair and does an excellent job of explaining things, so you completely understand what might need to be done. Team takes care of all my outboard issues, if and when I have any. Been going to him, since he bought the business. I've recommended Team to a lot of people and have never heard even one complaint.
