I burn E10 all summer long when the boat's in regular use. In the fall I switch over to ethanol free for the last few tanks, just so it's not sitting with ethanol in it all winter. So far, no...

Around 75% of the surfers around here drive that same way - spending most of their time looking back and not paying attention to where they're going. At least they're moving pretty slow relatively...

That vintage - would assume it's just the standard 3.5" gauge, which would use a 3 3/8" hole.

23 psi is way too low - should be like 35-40. I'd look hard at your fuel pressure regulator. I think there's a test where you can test both the regulator and the pump by blocking off the return...

Yea, sounds like you need to adjust the brakes. Generally, it's just adjust the star adjuster until you have trouble rotating the wheel forward, then back off like 10 clicks.

Yea, most sliding surge actuators are going to have a mild clunk (nature of the design somewhat), but I know in my before/after shock replacement, it quieted it down a ton and had less of the metal...

Don't know what actuator you have, but in the case of UFP's, if it's clunking, it usually needs the shock absorber replaced or you have air in your lines (or both). The shock replacement is pretty...

This is why I carry spare bearings/seals/grease on longer trips. I can do bearings in a half hour roughly. Sure, doing it on the side of the road sucks, but sure beats a $600 tow. If you carry a...

My non-tech version is just to put my hand on each hub every time I stop, as my dad taught me long ago. You won't have your hand there long if you have a problem.

For long trips - first order of business is cover on or off. Cover off prevents cover rub on the gel and rub-rail, but can let the boat get pretty damn dirty. Personally, for that length of a trip,...

Sadly, too far away to take you up on that Jason (in Minnesota). I hear you on engineers needing to be involved in their build-outs. I have a large hand in several O&M contracts, and we end up...

Cali, do you have disc or drum brakes? If you have drums, they'll reverse just fine so long as you're not backing up a steep incline. If you have discs, you either need the lockout key in place or...
