Thanks for the replies. I'm going to do this myself, as I have plenty of equipment. Not looking forward to it, but it's gotta get done. Don't use the boat a lot (obviously), so I'll tear it down and...

I've used mats, drop-in, and spray-in, and each has their purpose. For a work truck, I like drop-ins. Yeah, they may be hard on the paint, but they protect from dents better than anything. Also, for...

I just picked up a Springfield XD Mod.2 .45 3.3". Haven't shot it yet, but I sure like the way it feels. Was stuck on an XDS, but with my big hands, the Mod.2 fit me a lot better. Not as slim, but...

1998 Maristar transmission leak

Boat is a 1998 200VRS with 156 hours. Went on a short vacation a few weeks ago, and noticed a little pink in the bilge. Another vacation this past week, so I checked things over closely, and found...

Made my trip just fine with the drum master. Trailer stopped very well, and had no issues, but having to put the "key" in the hitch to back up was a pain. New disk master should be here tomorrow,...

If that's the case, I'll use it until the new one comes. Automotive drum brakes generally use a residual pressure valve in or around the master, usually 2 psi. If used with disk, it will make them...

UFP brake master cylinders

What is the primary difference between master cylinders for disk and drum? I converted my trailer to disk brakes, and ended up with the wrong master. I need to use the trailer this weekend, and...

Sounds like you have a bad brake hose. They can swell up inside, and stop flow. Lots of pressure will push through the hose, but won't flow back to let the caliper release. Saw it happen on cars a...

Sorry for the delay. Ran the boat every day for a week vacation. It runs very cool- about 145. Got it up to 160 a couple of times running it hard. Absolutely no temp spikes. That part is good, but I...

I've been watching this thread for a few years, and finally decided to see if my version of the "fix" will help. Since my boat is a '98 (140 hours), it already has the steam pipes on the front of the...

I have 8 antique tractors, and tires are always a concern- new are sometimes more than the purchase price of the tractor. I check with the ag tire dealers in the area often. One knows the sizes I...

Thanks for the replies. My other option is to get a cover that goes lower on the boat, or longer sides on my canopy. I just spent $275 to get the color back from sun fade. It turned out really nice,...

1990 nautique

My MC OCD is working on me a little. My very nice 134 hour 200VRS gets dirty sitting on the lift, and since I don't live on the lake, I worry about it too much. I've been considering buying a second,...

Don't want to nit-pick, but if you do decide to produce these shirts, "thank you's" is not grammatically correct. An apostrophe is used as a possessive, not a plural. You could either drop the...

By the way, my swim deck is completely different than yours. My boat only has 135 hours, and I'm sure it's original. Has yours been replaced, or were there different ones from the factory?

Nice work. I have the exact same boat, same year, except mine is purple (azimuth?). Unfortunately I had to leave it on the lift all winter (central IL) since the lake went shallow last fall, and...

A lot of GM owners here, but there's no doubt that the Ram is the better tow vehicle. Either will handle the boat, but the Ram has more power, more weight, and more wheelbase. It also has a bed you...

Lots of tractors and old cars, but these are the two that keep me off the water. The Moline is 800 cid, and pulls in an open speed class called "outlaw". Just getting started on the '40 Ford. I like...

I sure wanted to go, but just can't make it happen. I'm with Hunter Engineering- the booth is 7000 sq ft. Stop by and take a look.

V-drive placement on boat lift

I have my '98 200VRS on a 5k Shore Master lift, with 12' aluminum bunks. What's the best fore-aft location on the bunks? I have the rear of the bunks at the transom, but that leaves a lot of overhang...

An engine must have good oil pressure to avoid metal-to-metal contact at the bearings. There is no question that you have damaged bearings and shortened engine life. I would change the oil and...

Local lake is full of Rinkers, and a good number of Bajas. The dealer on the lake shoves a Rinker on about everbody that walks in his door, and the rest get a Baja. Not all bad, I guess- if it wasn't...
