  1. nice fish! how thick was the ice out that deep been thinking about taking the wheeler out there since i can only get on at the penn yan side and thats too far to walk to get to 120ft
  2. thanks bassn247. went out sun on long pond from 8 to 12 got 10 10in+ perch couple white perch and lost somthing big on the tip down. carefull if anyone goes out there was 5 to 6 gas pockets 10ft in diameter now with the little snow and somewhat cold temps they might be skimmed over but not thick enough to walk on. the ice was 14in+ where i was fishing just spud your way out

  8. i have had an 1986 75 hp motor sitting around for somtime now with a broken crank finally took it apart and looking for a crankshaft for it have tried ebay with no success was wondering if anyone knew any places to try to dig one up. thanks
  9. does not stumble at high speeds just takes awhile to get there, can push the throttle all the way down and does not accelerate takes a min to get to speed . new plugs last fall with only had the boat out twice with new plugs, new gas about a week ago. checked the wires they all look good. the motor is a 1986 and the prop is brand new a year ago. i had problems a couple months ago with gas coming out of the vent jet so i took the carbs off cleaned them and the boat ran at full speed put would not run at trolling speed so took them back off to make sure i didnt miss anything put them back on and now idles fine runs at low speed good but just wont jump to full throttle right. thanks guys
  10. i have a 75 hp mercury 2 stroke. the motor starts right up idles fine trolls perfect but when i go to full throttle it does not rev up right away and even when it gets to full speed its not as fast as it should be. just had the carbs off and cleaned them. anybody have any ideas on what it might be? been missing alot of fishing this year bc of this motor lol . thanks in advanced
  11. thanks guys i did know about warrens and hills just dont want to drive that far rather be fishing but if if i do lose that one lure who knows how far ill go to get it . Zebedee i would love to fish the big fish friday but unfortunately i wont be coming up till late friday due to work. good luck to everyone in the tourny
  12. i will be staying just outside dresden for the derby this weekend only be the second time fishing seneca for trout and salmon. i was wondering if there are any tackle shops near by just in case i need more of a hot lure lol . thanks
  13. thanks everybody for the responses. i took the carbs out took them completely apart and. thanks again cleaned everything, changed the gaskets re set the floats put the engine back together and no leak out of the carb the primer bulb stays hard and the engine is running mint cant wait to get out there and slam the browns again
  14. thanks for all the replies guys. so heres the scoop i changed all the lines filters and bulb i noticed after 2 pumps of the bulb it was coming out of the carb and out of the air box and still couldnt get it to start , so i let it sit for 15 mins and the engine started but died after 2 mins and could not start it again. so i figured carbs needed to be cleaned i took the carbs off and took them apart they look clean as i can see, jets looked fine. maybe somthing to do with the floats? thanks again
  15. just put a new primer bulb on the arrows facing the right way checked for a leak couldnt find any. i was told to hold the bulb upright and itll prime better have not tried it yet but have had the boat for 15 years never had to do that
  16. well had trouble last weekend with the boat motor wouldnt start when i changed gas tanks. founfd the problem with silicone in the lines, fixed that got it running. about an hour later my dad decided to try it again and forgot to turn the water on and fried the water pump. fixed that. but now cant get the engine to run seems like its not getting gas. will start when i put starting fluid in the spark plugs then dies. could this be a carb problem? primer prob? or somthing with putting the lower gear housing back on? when it ran with the starting fluid it was pumping water out. thanks for the help in advanced
  17. may has always been good for me out of wilson.
