No, I had to replace the muffler bearings when I bought my boat, and that is not the location of the bearing.

Off topic, I am surprised they are allowed to use "Predator" on an efi since it is also a "BRAND NAME" Carburetor.

Oh and yes, what FT said.

Its the engine resonator, like on a BMW Z4, if you twist the knob really hard right there is more noise, sounds sporty.

I always thought the knobs was for your experience level, if you are a total idiot you turn the power to "1", if you know what you are doing and can handle the power, you can crank it up to "10"!!!

Definitely the Perfect Pass servo. Just installed it on mine last season.

Engine volume control.

PP servo, the knob is used to take the string back up if the servo goes unstable.

Isn't that the power knob? Always thought you cranked it up for more power and different power settings.

Course it also looks like the reservoir for the blinker fluid :worthy:

Erk, did you get charged for Premium air the last time you had your tires rotated? Did you buy the 2 for the price of 1 license plate rotation as well? :smile:

What is the maintenance interval for lubing the muffler bearings?

That is the highly classified adjustable babe-attact-o-capaciter . When searching for babes turn to full capacity, when cruising with the boys turn to neutral. If turned to negative range it can actually repel the babes-with-tudes sub-species but this must be used with caution since most of the species has at least some of the babes-with-tudes in them and unintended repelling can occur.

As stated above this is a highly classified add-on and must be kept in the engine compartment where few women will look so as not to be deactivated or removed.

I worked at a lawn mower shop for three years in high school, and told a customer I had lubed his muffler bearings, and it ran fine, no charge. He couldn't thank me enough, all I did was put the spark plug wire on.

Checked with the local senior volunteer durable goods specialist, Wilbur Propwad and he said that was the control knob for the bilge washer. You know fill, wash, spin, drain, fill, rinse, drain, spin and reminded everyone to stay clear of the aggitator underneath! Be sure to service the raw oyster bar water pump anally!

Hope this guy had electric start and not just a rope and flywheel pulley!

Perhaps when he had the winter air changed to summer air in the tires, he forgot to underinflate to compensate for the added mass rotation.

Now, being a guitarist, what I want to know is does that knob go to 11??

I have noticed that most new vehicles no longer come with grease zerks on the mufflers any more. I think they are now the lifetime lubed type.
