    Re: Rudder stick travel adjustment

    At 45 degrees the boat will circle in place at idle. I've never really looked or paid attention to how far I pull the stick when I need to slide the boat out in an emergency stop.

    Yes unusual for sure but I'm pretty sure of it. The battery had no load on it when I disconnected it. All it took to restart it was two short fuel lines at the fuel rail.

    Re: more mag troubles

    That's the same problem I had with my original mag. It worked fine when cold but once it got warm it would shut down. It was a fairbanks, I have a slick mag now on for 10 years.
  11. Re: Mini pro 116 got yamaha apex motor going in it thoughts ?

    The prop should work. I don't know about back pressure. All I know is the guy had trouble getting it to run right with an altered exhaust. He put a stock exhaust on it and it ran fine.

    This is why I went with the smaller turbo hoping it would spool faster. In my mind the exhaust pressure has to be as high as possible by using a smaller diameter pipe without restricting the system....

    Most turbo are set up to spool at about 2500-3000 rpms. I got a smaller turbo hoping it would spool faster. I also wanted to eliminate any lag.
