Re: Always friggin' something!

Have someone hold the switch while you "tap" the appropriate trim solenoid. Probably just got a bit sticky from non-use. This happens rather frequently here, but the wife and I ARE getting along in...

Re: Prop and speed calculator

Merc. has had a "slide rule" calculator available that lets you check everything quick and easy. The Merc. part # is: C-90-86147, and includes some real good, basic, "don't kid yourself"...

Re: outboard height

IMHO the outers should be raised. But you will get LOTS more knowledgeable input from the "screamandfly" site. Try there and then get back with results, cause I'm kinda interested myself (being an...

Re: How do you pull engine with TRS drive / BW tranny ?

If you separate engine block from bell-housing and leave the bell-housing/tranny in boat, there should be no reason to re-align on re-assembly. (and of course, this way you don't mess with the...

Re: prop nut torque ??

I'm gonna get lots of flack for this, but: Throw that damn tab washer away. So many folks don't get it seated properly and lose a prop or cause more problems by running sloppy. Buy a few new prop...

Re: Price for used Hydromotives?

And by the way; The # of total hours on a good prop means nothing! It's the milli-seconds that it was in contact with anything more dense than water that ages them. --- Jer

Re: Price for used Hydromotives?

I bought a decent used one for $300 and thought I got a real good deal. If they are "like new" I should think you could ask $400. They are by no means obsolete and work very well in many...

Re: porpusing problem

Now, Hydrolift has gotten to the point! "Hook" makes your boat plow, not porpoise. "Rocker" causes porpoise. The Mirage and Mirage+ props (what you run) are terrific "bow lifters", and that is NOT...

Re: Just what is Avaiation Grade oil?

Re: Compression gone in one cylinder

Just what ex. valves were they? If not Inconel or the equivalent then my guess is that you dropped the head off #3 ex. into the cyl. Pull the valve cover and you can see just what's going on there...

Re: Hatch Actuator / Trim Pump

Re: 635 h.p. out of a 502 ?

You really need to see the verified build specs from the builder of the engines in that boat, insist on a sea trial, and a leak-down test, before writing any checks. --- Jer

Re: condensation watertemp ?

I'm getting that you ran it pretty hard and had no prob. Then after an easy weekend you saw the moisture. Perhaps it is an oil temp. prob. and not water temp. If you run easy and the oil temp....

Re: Rev 4 vs Hydromotive vs maximus

With the 1.36 to 1 drive ratio the #'s are beginning to make more sense. Hydro's props are just what they say they are. Don't really know about Rev Props but Throttle-Up can tell you! --- Jer

Re: T-Bolt IV Timing
