A boat is a hole in the water in which you throw money into. No matter what you paid for it. Some boats only take large bills. LOL

Reading this thread made me check my transmission cooler yesterday...

There's usually nothing in it, but yesterday there was a significant amount of pinestraw and a couple small twigs!

Sorry for your bad luck, but thanks for the heads up!

UPDATE: My insurance company sent out the (independant)investigator to look at the boat and motor. He determined from the pics and Mastercraft Dealer's statement that weeds were the cause. The insurance compnay has authorized the breakdown of the old motor in order to investigate further. So I should know more next week.

On another note maybe related: Perfect pass is unable to hold surfing speed (10.2 MPH) now- it just cuts the speed down until you loose the wake. Like I said it might be related or not to the installation of the new motor. For now just using manual.

Its the can shaped part in line with the intake hose. It is between the bottom of the boat and where the intake hose feeds the motor. It has two hydraulic hoses connected to it also.

Does the can have a see through top or something to see if it has debris in it or do you have to take it apart? When someone else said "visually inspect" it sounded like there is a way to visually inspect without removing the filter from the line.

Does MasterCraft make this in brass? We have a plastic one on our 2010 X-Star.
