Pretty much, though there was some ice near Prescott, WI last weekend. the little lake near my house just had the ice go out. Couple more days and we should be done with the below freezing weather and I will be firing up the '77 for the first time this year.

This is great. Could you make the template available once you have it finalized?

DS...you are welcome to the template. No warranties on its fit. However, I am starting to think that the sheet of insulation needed to lay down the template it going to be too big and/or very expensive. It would also need some trimming along the bottom edge. All the crazy angles are hard to measure too when the engine box has radius-ed lines. Still working on it..but thinking of simplifying as well.

BTW...if you were willing to tape the four corners with a 2" strip, I think what I have will work without a hitch...but there could be variations between motor boxes of the same year.

I think taping the pieces together might be the way to go. Mine is also a 96 ProStar....should be a perfect fit

DS...there you go. Attached is a template 1"=1'-0". No way to plot that out on paper. You will need to transfer dimension to paper and/or cardboard. Please check it for accuracy before cutting any expensive stock.

Thanks mgs96ps. Was that the right file you attached?? We have a large format plotter here...I may be able to plot it out 1:1

Put old leaf spring back trailer. Was shipped wrong load rating. Now I need to find the correct spring. 27 inch eye to eye 1750 or 2000 pound load rating and an unloaded arc of 4 inches ... Not readily found

Mike think that it's the same around as my 90 190 had on the factory trailer? If so I replaced one of mine and it worked perfect, I can get you the part # or even a couple springs if need be.

I looked all over for these springs when I had an 89 prostar. I found them in stock at Northern tool. I think this is them. http://www.northerntool.com/shop/too...5447_200365447
