Re: titan 60 disc surge brake coupler and bleed questions

buy one of these and open each bleeder one at a time on the calipers, bleed from there and you will get all the air out.

Re: Electric Winch on trailer

Guess I shouldn't travel to the north for boating, never heard the term "powerloading" we just call it driving onto the trailer, been the only way I've ever loaded my boats in 40 years of boating. Not sure how my prop wash can damage concrete, and my "prop wash" is traveling aft of the ramp area whe...

I talked with my dealer yesterday and they suggested I try this prop

Any thoughts on this suggestion?
13 pitch with a 150 4 stroke, no way, you’ll lose speed and over rev.

Re: Rigging new motor questions

I cannot think of any reason why they would object to bundling the two together as long as the span of distance they will be together there is no movement created by the steering cable which might cause fatigue on the wire over time?

Re: Rigging new motor questions

yes for bundling together, as far as the trim, never worked on a Tohatsu but most trim indicators I've ever worked with are adjustable, if your motor has power tilt and trim that pin wouldn't be used, because the TTU controls the trim of the engine from full negative to all the way up. the only adju...

Re: "Instant" transducer mount. Flex Glue?

The clear epoxy is for an in-hull ducer mount, you epoxy the transduce to the inside of the hull on a fiberglass boat for what is referred to as a "shoot thru" transducer set up. If you are going to bond something to your toon, I would use a 1/4 to 3/8 thick piece of aluminum stock, (small square) l...

Re: bugs in gages?

Re: Location for a second battery

2 are not NEEDED, but nice to have. It mainly depends on your boat, your operating habits and the usual loads on the battery. You mentioned sea legs, that pretty much puts you in the market fro a second battery as I would think they pull a fair amount of amps during operation. As far as weight distr...

Re: Location for a second battery

I worked on a friend's tracker fishin barge, added a second on the stern against the railing, mounted a battery box to the deck, ran the wires into the box in the corner where the original battery was located, and mounted the 1/2/off batt switch in the original battery compartment, very little wire ...

Re: Trouble Removing Brittle Tube Vent Plugs - Ideas?

Put some pipe thread dope on them, and call it a day. I have brass ones in the back/bottom of all three tubes on my tritoon, and they stay submerged when in the water (saltwater), haven't seen any corrosion to date. There were steel ones in there from the OEM, they got nasty quick. You could use PVC...

Re: Trouble Removing Brittle Tube Vent Plugs - Ideas?

I was restoring a tracker for a friend, same deal, red plastic plugs, I heated the area up with my micro torch then just dug it out, I think I may have used an easy out that would fit in the hole after the square tore off, probably just drilled it a little then did the heat and easy out, they all ca...
