Having recently purchased a 90 Mastercraft Maristar. My winter project will consist of making sure that it is ready for the water this spring.I will be pulling the prop and getting it repaired/trued.I will be installing a tower, and installing perfect pass.
Any advice on the following:

1. What types of towers would work well on this boat

2. What prop mfrs should I look at as far as a new prop if I decide to go that way.

3. Will installation perfect pass be a problem on this boat. Indmar 302 motor.

Thanks for the input/help.

1.I would go with a monster tower, it is solid, no too pricey and easy to install
2. go with a 4 blade cnc prop.

3. perfect pass will be tricky trying to get rpm readings off a carb. engine
good luck

JJ,

I second the Monster.

In addition to Jason's prop suggestion look at the newer 3 blade Acme, it actually has more surface area then the 4 blades. OJ has been getting a beating lately so you might be able to find a deal on one, they are still a close second to Acme in my opinion. I actually still run an OJ 3 blade for top end since I need the speed for barefooting.

Installing a perfect pass on a carb boat is just like an EFI boat, just a slightly different bracket for the throttle linkage. The RPM input comes from the tach lead not the carb. The perfect pass does not care weather it is a carb or throttle body.

PP will not be a problem I had it on my '82 Nautique and it worked great.

I installed PP in my carbed boat in under two hours. The paddle wheel is based off speed for wakeboarding, not rpm.

Let me know how your projects turn out. I have the same boat. Thinking about adding perfect pass this winter and an auto ballast system. I have a pylon for now so I am waiting on the tower.

Good luck!

make sure you install a return spring on your carb when you install perfect pass. i didnt a thought the thing didnt work for about 2 weeks.
