I just removed the steering wheel and other components in that area so that I could inspect the interior bolts and the tilt mechanism and everything looked fine. Nothing had backed out and nothing...

I have the full size. You can see the pics of it mounted on the New Dimensions website. I know a lot of people prefer the look of the mini, but I think the full looks great on our year boat.

It's personal preference but you may want to keep resale in mind (i.e. what will more people like). Personally, I don't think the forward sloping towers look right on the older boats like ours. I...

Perfect Pass -- makes pulling wakeboarders so much easier!!

I installed the latest version of Perfect Pass Stargazer a couple weeks ago and had been using it just for pulling open water slalom skiing. It definitely helps and allows the driver to not have to...

Yes, I hit all three of the spots to apply grease.

I do have tilt steering and just looked under the wheel, but I don't think I was looking at the right bolts. I could only see bolts behind the dash...

Steering "catching" when turning right

I've been noticing this more this season than last -- when going planing speeds in my '97 PS 190 it turns quite smoothly in both directions but frequently will "catch" when turning right. That is, I...

My prop suggestion was assuming a 1:1 transmission, but I've heard the Powerslot transmission works best with the 4-blade and obviously a very different size prop than we put on our 1:1 boats. If you...

Or an OJ XMP 13 x 11.5 3-blade. LH. This prop is comparable to the Acme 541 and both seem to be considered the standard replacement/upgrade for that hull with a 1:1 transmission (i.e. not the...

Most ski brands make a front adjustable boot on a plate. They usually have a sliding front piece with a fixed heel and then have a velcro wrap that goes back around the heel.

I know how you feel. I got a used 2014 Connelly Prophecy earlier this year after previously skiing on the Connelly V for a couple seasons. My first few sets I was really concerned that I would not be...

Just checked this and, yes, the TBI flaps are fully open at the WOT throttle position. Also, those last couple inches I mentioned earlier do indeed open the flaps wider.

I also inspected the spark...

I don't remember how it responded with the old prop, but I noticed yesterday that I hit WOT RPM and speed and could still push the throttle down a couple more inches before it hit the stopping point....

A couple months ago I noted RPMs at WOT, 36, 34 and 30 mph and then I replaced the cap, rotor, spark plugs and wires. There was no change in RPMs at any of the noted speeds after the tune up. My fuel...

I like where the RPMs are at for the skiing speeds, but wondering why WOT RPMs are so different. A lower pitch in the same prop would theoretically increase RPMs at every speed.

A 13x12 would further lower the WOT RPM and I need to go in the other direction. I considered a 13x11 instead of the 13x11.5 since I am at 2100 elevation, but that is not really "high" elevation so I...

Strange RPM situation with new prop

I just upgraded my stock 13x13 3-blade prop with an OJ XMP 13x11.5 3-blade for my '97 PS 190 (350 tbi, 1:1). I did a number of RPM tests with my old prop so I could compare after changing to the new...

Reach your hand over the side of the boat and put your fingers in the water -- that's the only way to get water temp with my system.
