  1. Main Duck over the U.S./Can. Border. Used to fish that area for eyes before the 911 incident and things got a lot tougher crossing the border.
  2. I had a crest liner years ago I needed to remove the two seat pedestals and remove the floor piece and the unit was right there, six screws out and there it was out!! I got one from crest liner and it looked like the same universal ones you get at West Marine, mine I had to calibrate which is nothing more than bending the float rod. Mine was a 1750 with a 30 gal tank.
  3. How did the Ducks treat ya?? Thanks for any info. PAP.
  4. Absolutely great job!! The great outdoors is where common sense and a lot of other meaningful things in life are learned. Not in front of the idiots box killing your opponent as he or she gets up time after time, not how it goes in the real world!! Reel em get the fish off the hook and in the water so “It doesn’t DIE is stressed” in the fishing world. Nice going dad. Looking forward to the end of softball season so my daughters can hit the water also!!

  6. Yeeooww those were some hungry ladies!! I find it amazing what these fish can inhale when they are aggressive, which adds truth to the Muskie hunter stories, claiming they catch these pain in the A$$ walleye on there 8” gear they are pulling or casting!!

    Carb help

    The Rochester carbs are simple to rebuild and the merc carb is just a tad different just to screw with ya, I found this out on the 3.0L and the accelerator pump took a dump, the hardest part was getting the spring in the accelerator valve to be in the right position when the top of the carb is installed, sounds to me the low idle metering body is fould up, that’s what was the ailment with mine also, the corn juice just turned everything the $hit. After we rebuilt the whole carb she purrs like a kitten.

    Power Trim Question

    When I was in business having a starter & alternator rebuild shop, we got a lot of calls from guys who had these issues, most of the time it wasn’t worth the time to replace parts, as the water just rusted everything to hell and we could get replacement units cheaper than the dealers hourly wage just to look at it. Give your local auto electric rebuilder a call you might be surprised!!
  20. I made a personal purchase which was nice and the price was nice also!! I just got lucky!!!

    Carb help

    What motor are the carbs off of?? What’s happening to say it’s carb troubles??
  22. Yea buddy, the lake looks like a mirror, great job on the silver fish!! Congrats to your outing!!!
  23. That’s a scary feeling to be way out there and to be able to get back safely is the main objective, my uncle was completely wrong in his bearings as which way is home that’s for sure, I followed my hand held unit which has a mount took us back safe and sound!! I still use that unit as my gps speed. That was before the sonars had the gps available to the average Joe. And they just made a square block line. LOL
