  1. Raymarine discontinued the SportPilot some time ago and I wouldn't recommend buying a used one. There are other affordable units out there that will serve you well. Hyd or cable steer?
  2. From past overall experiences I would steer clear of Jasper. There are several very good company's that deal strictly with marine rebuilds and/or new long block assembly's, one being the for mentioned Michigan Motorz & another is Marine Engines Inc. out of Mass. If your going that way I would both consider the difference in price between a new vs rebuilt long block & also stepping up to a 5.7 over the 5.0 while your at it.

  4. New swivel only. No mounting plates with them. 3 available $50 each or bo prefer not to ship
  5. I was referring to the filter not the tank. If its been a season or more I would change it out and check it for water again after a few trips to see where you stand. **The amount of water is not extreme for that time frame & shows the filter is doing the job it was intended to do.
  6. When did you drain it or check it last?
  7. Which model Sport Pilot & what do you need? Sent from my T790S using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Kits are available ( 435070 ) but complete pumps are about nonexistent although there is a guy out in Ohio ( pettys marine ) that advertises complete pumps on an exchange basis only. I know nothing about him but it might be worth a shot if your isn't rebuildable.
  9. I believe you'll find that titles started in 1987 for boats 14' and over in NYS.
  10. Quality grade Dextron III ATF

  13. Good point, you need a minimum of 10" behind the dash, but unless it is an older Morris rotary helm/cable or a rack & pinion set up any existing Teleflex rotary cable is compatible with the octopus drive.
  14. Steering the boat with power assist steering is most always hard on a mechanical drive pilot with the engine not running but the octopus is a more direct and stronger unit than the X5 was & has a full disconnect so you should see no resistance in steering in standby or pilot off mode.
  15. If you have the X5 version Sport Pilot you can utilize the Octopus Type S drive in place of the X5 drive
  16. This system will work out better if you plan to install a hydraulic auto pilot system to steer both the kicker and outdrive with the engine not running. Pilot will be much more responsive not having to drive the power assist cylinder with the engine off.
  17. Channel always fills in over the winter months John. It should be dredged & navigable the 1st week of April.
