thanks alot Jim!
just waiting on two new risers that should be here sometime this week... i'll keep you posted.
are there any good posts on a do-it-yourself oil change? i assume its just like a car but my only question is should i warm up the oil first to make it easier to drain? and can i just connect a longer bleeder hose that will reach to my drain plug and out the bottom of the boat? and what about the thermostat, should it also be replaced?
thanks again, cant wait to boat.
