    Lead Core preference

    Is there a big difference in the quality of Lead core by brands. Looking for advice on what brand to use. Thanks

    4.3 Mercruiser Overheating

    Makes sense that that would be a problem when trolling. Thanks.

    4.3 Mercruiser Overheating

    I had an overheating problem with my 260hp 350 merc that I tried to figure out for a couple of years. Mine was running hot while at low, trolling speed. I did everything I could think of to fix it. Changed the impeller, thermostat, water pump, temp sensor and even the temp gauge. After a long, time consuming couple of years If found an article about the check valves in the cooling system. it's just a couple of nylon balls with springs on a threaded rod. I'm not sure what they are designed to do. I bought a set for under $15 and took care of my problem. I think the some 4.3s have these. Your problem sounds a little different than mine but might be worth a shot. You can actually adjust them by tightening and loosening the balls. Maybe Hank can tell us what these are.

    Releases for copper and leadcore.

    Usually using it on the backing but on the lead or copper would help if I didn't want to let it all out and it didn't damage it.
  12. Wondering what was the preferred planner board release for Copper and leadcore. I'm using Cannon offshore releases I happened to have but figured there must be other releases that will hold them. Thanks, Rick

    to many wires going to my batteries

    This is what I used on my batteries. Cleaned them up nicely. Not sure if this will fit your needs. Just be sure to use in line fuses. http://johnnyraysports.com/terminals.htm
