    Third downrigger location?

    Put it where it will fish the best and take the platform off if you need to. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Installing Hydraulic Steering

    I have the Raymarine sport pilot, I removed all the hydraulic original equipment, steering wheel, to control arm. All of it gone, including all the hydraulic lines and power steering pump. I installed Sea Star HH5261 helm, hoses and SeaStar/Teleflex Inboard ATM Cylinder Part #HC5313 and the incidentals. Done works perfectly with motor off.

    What flares?

    I just get flares at the Walmart, they are fine. I think the electronic stuff needs to mature. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Dark plugs

    Start with high octane gas and E3 plugs and it will help alot maybe enough for what you need. What jarred said is very true, thats why kickers are made different than regular motors.

    4.3 Mercruiser Overheating

    You have to start with the water pump in the outdrive. I know you said it was done, but what your describing is very -outdrive water pump- sounding. Boat in the water, pull the hose coming from the outdrive water pump off where it goes into the motor or heat exchanger and stick it in a 5 gal bucket and time it. Then measure how much water it pumped in the time (you can find what it is supposed to do in many places on the net). Then you will know if the problem is the outdrive water pump or ahead of it. One time the pickup tube from my outdrive water pump got pinched when assembling it and caused the same problems.

    Installing Hydraulic Steering

    If you get the right fittings they will fit right threw with no issues make sure you have some 5200 sealants to seat the new ones with. They have a fitting that comes with a front half (outside of boat), that threads into the back (inside the boat) and it comes in all different configurations. If it were me I would not get plastic, only brass or aluminum. I wouldn't take the chance of it breaking, I hate threw the hull fitting, as they have sunk alot of boats. I did almost the same conversion on my boat and am very happy with the results, you are going to really like the steering on it.

    Reviving Fish in Open Water

    The real problem is with how deep your bringing them up from and the water temperature you are releasing them in. You need to get them back down to depth with a reverse hook and weight. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
