Mikeg- looks great. Were you able to use the same roller shaft as before?

Replaced the starter on my 99' I was starting to hear some grinding coming from the starter during crank. Pulled out the starter found that the main shaft was loose due to the bearing (s) being shot. Found a place right here in St. Paul that rebuilds starters, Walters Restoration. Purchased a rebuilt starter for $140 in the same day as dropping mine off. Good as new!

Thanks.. the MCOCD got the best of me...lol so I added them - no more hull gouge if I ever goof at the ramp... I don't want to show up in the boat ramp blooper thread...

I got the rollers from http://www.easternmarine.com/catalog...sult/?q=stoltz

You need the longer roller shaft http://www.easternmarine.com/5-8-x-1...er-shaft-86041 - and they you need to take about 1.25 inches off. I cut it with a jig saw with a steel cut off blade

and pal nuts of course. http://www.easternmarine.com/5-8-rol...pal-nut-10801c

And the New.

Went with a symmetrical style since my boat has hydraulic steering which doesn't keep the wheel centered like cable steering.

Mike G,

Did you add the keel roller to your trailer? How high does it sit above the cross-member? My trailer has a rubber pad on that cross-member.

I didn't add the roller - a quick measure indicate the center of the roller is 3" above the top of the cross member.
