I started my trans rebuild. Unfortunately I broke my forward clutch cylinder in the press. I could't get the snap ring to pop in and gave it one pull too many on the ol press. Fortunately found a replacement for $40. I can live with that.

Started the spring prep.



Sanded and teak oiled the platform.

Finished up Depth Finder install. Thanks Cloaked for the tip about removing the forward center panel. While this a a bit of a PITA, involving removing drivers seat assembly (and modding seat bottom to reach the two rear center #12 x 2" SS screws), it was the right way to do the job. Nobody panic, the wiring was properly secured to the muffler post picture...





Which led to the relocation of the hour meter to the engine compartment. Bonus points for proper purple wire from ignition to hour meter (thanks NAPA).



Installed new exhaust manifold bolts on left manifold (did right side last year for a different reason). They were original and corroded a bit. I like shiny things too.



New shifter knob, shiny things are good.

Sub mounted under the drivers seat as well as all new speaker wires ran. Need to clean it up a little bit yet and make a kick panel for it.


Boat Buckles, LED lights on trailer, prop cage rollers.


Teak refinished with the Star Brite 3 step process.



Hopefully ordering a depth gauge this week as well as a new jack wheel.

Where did you get those prop-cage rollers? Looks like a good add on.

Having trouble with the battery light indicator, keeps coming on (flashing) when the boat is running.

13.1. - 13.2

My first thought was the voltage regulator, what's yours?

Got them from caltrailerworks.com which bought out the DHM trailer business so they fit perfectly on my DHM. They custom make each unit shipped so I think they can make them for just about any trailer.
