    Re: upgrade to 4a084

    The engine tilt is very important. I had to tilt mine so it pushed down a little on the bow. This lifted the back a little an d now have very little wake.

    Re: The streak is gone

    Yes Corky that is exactly what it was. It worked ok the first time I was out. The second time it was worse and the third blew all the oil out. They were all short runs but the rings got worn down on...

    Re: The streak is gone

    When I am testing something or the boat isn't running up to par I always go up river. I was able to float and get some fishing in.

    I'm within walking distance of Saturn Surplus. I'll just put in...

    The streak is gone

    After the long streak with no problems it's over. Totally my fault though. When I got the boat out this year it didn't turn over by hand at first. I rocked the prop a few times and it broke lose. I...

    Re: Almost There finally.

    I made it out today! It ran just like the day I put it away. I was in the water by 6:30 and finished my rounds by 9:30. A great day on the river, I needed it.

    Re: Almost There finally.

    Now that made me laugh. The two or three strikes in that video were all there was. I don't fix my dents like that. I put the boat on the garage floor and put a bottle jack on the dent then a 4x4 up...

    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.

    Re: I've been busy

    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.

    It's a 95 4.0 HO 4:10 5sp...

    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.
  24. 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.
  25. Re: Mini pro 116 got yamaha apex motor going in it thoughts ?

    It will be fine. Of course you'll need to match the reduction as mentioned. The biggest problem I've seen was altering the exhaust for airboat use. If the exhaust isn't tuned correct the engine won't...
