  1. I have a 2003 mercruiser 4 cyl 3.0. Looking to adj idle mixture screw. It has a cap over it that doesn't pop off easily. It is on such that it wiggles a bit but wont come off. Thought I would ask if there is a procedure to remove the cap before I get rough and break something Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Hate when the phone picks a misspelled word for you. Meant gunwale mount Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. SOLD. I have 2 Cannon 18 in gunwale mounting tracks. They fit into gunwale rod holders. Great for quick removal of multiple rod holders or riggers. These are new, never used , still in boxes. I don't think they are even available new any more. $60 each firm. Mexico area. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Electrolysis has nothing to do with the "softness" or "weakness" of metals but is totally controlled by how Noble a metal is. This is the term used to define its resistance to corrosion (oxidation). Gold is a very soft and mechanically very "weak" metal but is very noble. It can lay on a sunken ship in the ocean for a thousand years and look like new. Magnesium is one of the least noble metals and oxidizes very easily. In fact, a thin strip of magnesium will flash burn when subjected to a flame, ie rapid oxidation. Aluminum is of low nobility so you need something lower to corrode faster, ie Magnesium. Brass has a generally high nobility and stainless steel, depending on the type, Is very high. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. I will check how many I have on next trip to camp and let u know. I think I have a few 28 size also. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. I have some of the same NK spoons but without the ladder back tape. The tape may have been put on. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. There are usually a single or more anodes mounted on the out drive or outboard motor transom bracket that will be under water even when the motor or drive itself is trimmed fully and out of the water and much as possible. If you buy a full magnesium kit they will be included. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. It seems not much people know that zinc anodes are not of much value in fresh water. They are recommended for salt water. Aluminum anodes are a bit better in fresh water but are recommended for brackish water. Magnesium anodes are best for fresh water issues. They are available for most out drives and outboards.

  9. If you just want something for the kicker, get the Lowrance hydraulic outboard pilot and just buy a hydraulic cylinder instead of the complete hydraulic steering system. Put the cylinder in the steering tube of your kicker and hook up the lowrance outboard pilot to it without an actual steering wheel (pump). Should work well.

  10. Lowrance makes both a mechanical drive and hydraulic system. The mechanical for rack and pinion is a bit more expensive. Both need a HDS gen 2 or later system. The hook and elite and some others wont work. The HDS Carbon and Live will work. The Hds Carbon 7 can be bought for $800 on line now. I have good luck with a hydraulic outboard pilot and a HDS gen 2 touch for about 3 years now. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. When I was at my cottage on the pond I believe the water was as high as it had been in 2017 and going higher. Way over my docks. I fished sat in the pond sat and did well around rocky areas. The fish were not in their normal areas for this time of year due to water temp. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Been through there numerous times this year. No problem getting out. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Launched there yesterday at 5am. Water was 2 in. from top of wall. Pulled out at 11 after slow, slow morn. Water was 2 in. over wall. Park workers were removing benches and tables from underwater. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. The problem is that they will probably close everything soon as was done in 2017. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Pine grove is also open but boots are needed to cross the walkway to the dock Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
