    Need Help Before I Pull Out What Little Hair I Have Left.

    My Skipjack is the Open model. I removed the floor cover that was screwed down and sealed. You have to get that shut off valve off,then the pickup tube. Its threaded into a welded on the tank thread. It was 15-18" long. It maybe too long to get out without removing the tank floor cover.

    Need Help Before I Pull Out What Little Hair I Have Left.

    My Skipjack had a problem on high loads. I finally pulled out the pick up tube to check the screen. Mine didn't have a screen,but looking at the tube I noticed a fine crack just below where it was soldered on. I bought the same size copper tube and soldered it to the top fitting.

    Which reel for poppers

    I have the Penn Spinfisher Ssv 9500. It has 375 yards of 80 spectra,plenty of line. The rod is a Phenix Megladon popping rod. I first had it on a non popping rod,and that was a mistake.(too flexible) Popping rods are very stiff,helping you take up the slack line quick after casting.

    Sorry to say I think you would have been better off buying plain steel lug nuts. Different metals together in saltwater create electrolysis,corrosion. Crome lug nuts are not the best either. If you get new brakes and hubs from Pacific Trailers,they usually include new lug nuts.(plain steel)

    need boat mechanic or engine advice urgent

    Does it look like lower unit oil or 2 stroke oil? Lower unit oil is thicker (75-90w). Check the lower unit oil level and if it's full,more than likely its 2 stroke unburned oil.(from not starting right away) I would clean it off and restart it.

    There's some good advise already. Only other thing I would try is tapping on the bolt with a punch and hammer. Also impact air tools have a hammering effect,sometimes breaking frozen bolts loose.

    Opinion on Transmission Shift Kit

    If it has electronic shift solenoids (computer controlled) I wouldn't use the shift kit. You could cause all kinds of check engine light "shift solinoid codes". On non computer controlled transmissions I would consider the kit.

    Sea Fox 199 Commander

    The Fiberglass cracked and it was leaking. We went out 40 miles tuna fishing only to find out there was about 30 gallons of water in the bilge . He had it repaired twice with no luck. His only had a 5 year warranty and the boat was a few years older than that. Maybe the new ones are...

    Sea Fox 199 Commander

    I would check their hull warranty. My friend cracked his 19' ft. Wasn't covered. The stringers ended about 3' from the front of the boat and that's where it cracked. He had it repaired by a boat builder,but it cracked again.

    Any auto air conditioning guys on BD ?

    I've replaced a number of shorted out clutches. Unplug the ac compressor clutch wire connector. put a fuse in,turn it on and see if it still blows. If it doesn't,it's the clutch.(clutch disconnected,isolated). Simple as that.

  674. skipjack

    Any auto air conditioning guys on BD ?

    Try turning the ac compressor by hand. Grab the center,not the pulley.it should turn with some resistance. (This checks to make sure your compressor is not frozen up). If it turns the problem is most likely the magnetic clutch is grounded...you could check this with an ohm meter.
