  1. Got them in the mail. They seems to work as they were meant. Never used Sam's though so we'll see how it goes.
  2. Well OK...I'll let you know. lol.
  3. Yes....Zam's. I currently use rubberbands on the front of my inlines to release but wanted to try "Russel's" Sam's pro release method. FishUSA has been on backorder for about a year so I went to Ebay. Found these "knock off" Zam's pro release. Anybody try them yet?
  4. 2 New Spypoint Link Micro cell cameras. 2 used Spypoint Link Micro cell cameras. (Still in the woods sending pics). 8 months old and on original batteries. 1 New never used Spypoint Long range antenna. 1 New Universal Antenna. The 2 Cameras that are used work perfectly. Our property drops down into a swamp/valley and has no service so we're going to go with the cuddelink system. 4 Class 10 16gb SD cards also included. $400 TYD Much easier to contact me by text. 814-671-5131
  5. Just purchased a pair of older Cannon Magnum 10a for mainly Lakers this spring out of pa waters. I don't have any weights yet and I've been looking at either torpedoes or fish shaped weights in 10 or 12 lb. Anyways these Zwings keep popping up on my FB ads. Looks like that would be the ticket. Only 3.5lbs and supposedly less blow back. Basically a giant cool shaped dipsy from what I can tell. Anybody ever use them. I can't really find anything about them other that reviews on amazon that I don't trust.
  6. So if I would have revved the boat up it would have perhaps pumped it through the system better or would it also have to be in gear and revved up? Again, it's definately NOT how I'm going to rely on winterizing I was just basically curious as to if that impeller was working properly. I already ordered a new kit to install here pretty soon.
  7. I'm kinda hoping the same thing. Normally I'd do what you did and drain first then fill. This is the first winter with this boat and I just wanted to see how much made it up through the engine with just pouring in through the outdrive. Got my answer. I was just surprised which made me think something was wrong.
  8. I think we're on the wrong page. I drained the entire engine when I winterized it. I drained the manifolds (heat exchanger) directly after I ran antifreeze through the out drive. I was expecting to see antifreeze come out of the heat exchangers after I ran antifreeze through the outdrive. That's where the heat exchangers and manifolds get there cold water from the lake from right?
  9. It wasn't a question of if I winterized it correctly. I know I did that. Thinking about putting the boat back in the garage "heated" and getting prepared for the season. My question was after 2 (actually I think it was 3) gallons of antifreeze I would have thought there would have been some sort of sign of it in my manifolds (heat exchangers) when I drained them. Again, I pulled the thermostat out so I was sure it would be an "open" system. My only guess is that my impeller is getting weak and didn't pump it up through the whole block. Even though it came out the exhaust isn't there a bypass at low RPM that allows water to circulate from the intake on the outdrive right back out the center of the propeller without actually being pumped up through the engine? Never had any overheating issues on the water last year. I was just expecting to have antifreeze in my manifolds when I drained them.
  10. I winterized my 4.3 I/O Alpha one last fall. While in the garage I took the thermostat out and put the "cap" back on so that I was positive that it was open. Next I connected the ears to my outdrive with a hose to a funnel. I had my buddy start the boat and I poured two gallons of antifreeze down the funnel until it was pouring red out the exhaust so I figured it made it through the whole system. I then pulled the plugs on my exhaust manifolds "expecting to see antifreeze" but pure lake water poured out NOTHING with a red or pink tint whatsoever. Is this normal or does it sound like that impeller in the outdrive needs attention? I thought that the antifreeze should have pumped through the whole system.
  11. Dixie Bluefin 821 4.3 Mercruiser with 9.9 fourstroke mercury kicker. Garmin Reactor 40 kicker autopilot. Had it strip one part that was covered under warranty. Love it .
  12. Came on a boat I bought and I took it off. I put power to it and the fish finder 525 powers up but the screen doesn't come on. Could be a wire or something simple could need the screen repaired. Comes with the transducer. Willing to trade for just about anything, let me know what you have. Or $100 for everything. The FF525 is $270 alone new.
