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...

I've had a TPS do the same thing. It was caused by moisture getting in it (on a boat? imagine that). New ones are pretty cheap, but you can put it in an oven at around 300 degrees for a while to dry...

Starting a carb boat is no different than starting a carb car- one pump of the throttle to set the choke, and turn the key. It doesn't need to be "primed". If you are pumping the throttle several...

You mentioned valve lash- you don't have adjustable rockers, so I hope you figured that out and torqued down the rocker bolts. It will run real bad and come apart if you didn't.

Erratic tach

Boat is a '98 Maristar with an LT1, 125 hours. Today the tach was somewhere around 50% too high for the first hour out. After that, it was fine. Did the same thing last year- sometimes accurate,...

ShoreMaster lift switch

I need a new toggle switch for a Shoremaster 5000lb 110v lift. Not any dealers near here, and I've searched the net till my eyes bled. Can anybody send me in the right direction?
