Man, what a morning! Pulled the one piece silent master to get the starter out to grease it up. That was a chore! Pulled the shaft out. The strut was tweeked as I already suspected. (pics to come) I saw it when I bought her from the PO. There's a spot on the shaft where she was scratched as well as the strut. I pulled the Cutless bearings out and put the shaft back in and you could see it was tweeked bad. I un-tweeked it. lol The shaft is in OK shape but it's gunna have to work for another season... 400 bucks can be spent other places.... (new bunks) Changed the fuel filters..... last time the lower one was changed was, get this, 11-11-03!!! YIKES! I have pics and I will post in the right places when I get some more time... Busy day!!! I need to see how much it's gunna cost to rebuild the wheel... It's an OJ. :-)

water temp is still in the high 50's air temp is in the 60's. Since the drought killed my 2011 season I figured well start early this year before the water is all gone again...

Good for you... my water 38 degrees right now..air temp hi 30's. Last season sucked up here in the north because of all the flooding...some areas were 25 feet above flood stage.. just opposite of you. Water did not settle until July.

People are driving on our water, but at least it's smooth as glass.
Don't think I've ever posted on this forum before. That's why I like my MasterCraft, don't seem to need to do much to it aside from the occasional buff and wax.

You can rig up a drill pump to the drain hose and suck out the oil.
