    Installing Hydraulic Steering

    Vetting, I have also been having problems with my sportpilot steering as the unit becomes tight and almost binds when in manual mode. Where would the spacers be placed ? There seems to be adequate clearance between the wheel and the drive unit. I have also re torqued everything. The standard steering is very easy when the sportpilot is removed. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks , Jack

    Four years ago I had the carborater and fuel lines replaced. No major work needed since I've owned it. Previous owner had motor rebuilt about ten years ago. The out drive has had the water pump and hoses replaced three years ago. The motor is a Merc 140 which is actually a four cylinder Chevrolet four cylinder chevrolet engine- very simple maintanance - plugs, points & condenser.The out drive has much the same needs an an outboard with respect to lubrication. It is also important to visually check for cracks in the hoses on a periodic basis. What I like best about this size I/O is that it will run smoothly at 550-600 RPM which allows me to troll anywhere from 1.75 to 2.5 mph without the hassel of drift bags and stiil do 30-35 mph when you want. Hope this helps. Jack

    Not enough use to justify the expense of the slip at the marina and the 500 mile round trip, often solo. I also own a 1999 Starcraft Superfisherman 196 which I use to fish Lake Champlain occasionally and Quabbin Resevoir on a regular basis. I enjoy fishing lake "O" and will probably make an occasional trip with the Starcraft.
  14. Looking for windshield glass and/or windshield parts for 1986 Sylvan 22 Offshore . This is for the windshield which sets above the Cuddy Cabin. Will consider a complete windshield. PM me or call 413-519-3509 Thanks , Jack
  15. Thanks , rolmops You list several that i wasn't aware of. I'll get busy. Jack
  16. Thanks, rolmops I've contacted several that I found on the internet without success. Will continue to look. Jack
  17. Thanks thork9, I've spent a lot of time on the internet with much the same result. The side vent windows are the principal problem - Port side broke and gaskets for both sides are shot. if I can't find the parts , I may simply follow your advice and simply install them as non-opening. Thanks again, Jack
