Question about Boating
Steering went out yesterday, we're told to remove the steering wheel and check the wires. This is a Sportcraft Center Console fishing boat.
Is your steering using the cable / pulley and springs, or has it the through the tube steering? If it's the later, undo the nut that holds the cable to the transom bracket, Then try and turn the motor, If the motor won't budge, the pivot is seized, If the motor moves, your cable is seized or the steering box needs help! How to remove your steering wheel, There will be a cover hiding the nut in the centre of the wheel!

temp sensor or oil sensor, on that motor, thats gonna be the only 2 options for an alarm. You might need a new water pump impeller or clean the intake out. You get grass and sand etc in there and it will restrict water flow

Have a look along the cable housing.At either end it will have some letters and numbers on it.Different makes have different ways of sorting these numbers.The common thing is it will have a length on it.If its hard to work out,just write down the entire sequence and the parts shop will be able to give you the correct length of cable.Hope this helps

are you sure about this or guessing with the boat on the trailer . they do move the motor in the opposite direction as one would think they should .

Use a pencil to mark the holes for the extinguisher mounting bracket. After marking the holes,apply smal pieces of masking tape over the holes. This will prevent the Gel coat from chipping while drilling the holes for mounting the screws. If the side of the compartment is thick enough, you can use self taping screws. If there is access to the other side thru an access port, you can use machine screws and lock nuts to secure it. Keep in mind that you will want to use a 316 stainless steel fastener, and also apply a marine silicone in the holes before screwing the fasteners in place. 18-8 stainless will corrode/rust overtime, especially in a saltwater environment.

Testimonial: "This information was very helpful. Hate to pay someone to mount two screws. The masking tape was a very important step that I would have missed. Thanks a lot! "
