Do a search on the site - there has been plenty of posts concerning this. You may need to disconect the tube where it attaches to the speedo and blow it out. I assume you have pickups that measure the pressure and not a paddle wheel like the newer boats?
Again - use the search option.

If this is the boat in question, I would jump on the hose or pick up having debris in it. Clear it out and test again. Make sure it is attached at both ends when done.

As said before...search this site, check the pickup, clear hoses, cut a new end and reattach hoses, and check brass tubes for leaks.

Thread Jack.

My speedo pick up broke this weekend, anyone have any luck finding a Airguide Black Round Base from a dealer? Haven't had any luck...even searched Ebay. I know Airguides been out of business for a couple years now. But anyone know of a place or have one to sell?

I am about ready to order 2 of these.

Also, if I could buy a decent paddlewheel speedometer for $150 or less, I would. Does anybody know of one?
