Gee, didn't see that coming... Good on them for making a more efficient operation and canning employees. It's what the liberals wanted.

Indeed. Ethanol mandates are a subsidy for big business. Not picking on big business, all subsidies are bad as it's just theft. Ethanol mandate wastes natural resources for a net natural resource,...

Sweet. I picked up a Parker 8" opening a few years back when I broke my old vise. Want to say I paid $80 for it. It's not a Wilton, but I'm very pleased with it. Stripped it apart, cleaned, painted,...

Ah, misread that and thought you were talking about circulation pump. For the raw water pump check for scratches in the housing. Anything particularly deep and you'll need a new pump. Absolutely...

I'm a regular over at the Supra forum. I've found the guys there very knowledgeable and helpful, a wealth of information on these boats. SupraBoats is like CCF but with fewer members likely because...

You could measure up the seal and replace just that if the shaft is not grooved. Impeller would hopefully be brass or stainless and clean up nice. Backing plate hopefully stainless and not rusted...

If you're getting plenty of water out the exhaust it sounds like your raw water pump and intake are functional and not plugged up. Does the PCM 351w have any sort of check ball/valve in the...

It'll work fine, but I wouldn't do it. The insulation on welding cable is very different from SGT or SGX though. Works fine in a pinch or handy for cheap jumper cables and such, but not ideal for a...

Titlt the drive too high and turn it much past straight and you'll be replacing ujoints. That's a lot of work to clear a few inches at best. These things vary from boat to boat, but generally draft...

^ This. Mine is positioned with inlet and outlet down. To winterize I just disconnect the line at intake and before raw water pump and blow some air through the intake (high) side.

How is that backwards I/O drive cheaper than or superior to a BW, ZF, or Velvet Drive? More complexity in the drive as well as the hull and likely more labor intensive to service. I don't get it....

Compare the cost of dropping in a trans and a new prop and possibly shaft to the cost of building your engine for more power. What engine are you running? Maybe time for a stroker or a big block?

I would just pull it apart and assess damage. You may get away with just replacing the crank and balancing the whole shebang along with a new balancer. New Forged 383 stroker crank about $600-$700, a...

Something fishy about that SunSport. Composite boats are usually in the $10k-$13k range, maybe a bit less but $6k is very cheap. Maybe a scam. Maybe some damage not disclosed. If it has freeze damage...

Looks good, clean tight fit. Appears more clear than the glass in the pics, hopefully it stays that way. I need to make a new side vent/wing window for mine and may try this. Mine is flat so should...

$20-$30 per rider is appropriate for a typical day of 3-4 sets each. If you're not riding then I don't expect anything. I don't require money but most either ask how much for gas or get the idea...

That's a solid $2500 truck, maybe up to $3500 for the right person. The problem is it's 2wd. If 4x4 you could double that price easily with a price ceiling in the $10k-$12k range for a 4x4 manual...
