Bilge pump on 1996 nitro bass boat inop


Check to make sure the fuse is good and you have power going to the switch and then to the wires (brown for positive and black for negative) in the bilge area using a 12 volt tester. If you have power to the brown wire while grounded to the black wire then the pump will need to be cleaned, have the impeller replaced or replace the pump. The pump is located in the rear compartment attached to a board mounted to the inside bottom of the boat at the center near the transom.

Need to change steering unit 1987 Bayliner cuddy


I have a 1988 Bayliner with Power Steering. If you are asking about removing the steering parts on the transom, they are just like a Rack and Pinion.

You want to turn the steering to shorten the rod and drive it back into the case. Then you will unbolt the case from the transom and the motor.

The hydraulic hoses are another challenge. You want to remove as much fluid from the steering pump as possible. Leave the fluid coolers alone and just uncouple the hoses at the steering case on the transom.
You want to BE PREPARED to cap the ends of the hoses and raise them as high upwards as you can keep them.

The steering case will then drop fluid. In an ideal situation you would have plugs to close the holes the hoses are removed from. A bucket to catch the fluid and plenty of rags to keep the fluid out of the bilge is about all you can do. You may get lucky and be able to wrap plastic wrap around the steering case to seal off the leaks.

You reinstall and then bleed the air out of the system by steering lock to lock a few times.

Trying to find original placement of 48 spl (johnson). loaned my boat to a friend (first mistake) he thought it would be a good idea to move the motor up or down a notch on the transom to get a little...


When the engine is in the full down tilt position then you want to have your anti-cavitation plate level with the very bottom of the transom. The anti cavitation plate is the bigger horizontal fin that sits just above the prop.

Bravo one water on tiller arm


Assuming "tiller arm" is the steering arm (connects to steering actuator and disappears into transom plate, lay on top of engine - not running - and have a friend turn steering wheel, black arm that is coming out of transom and moving is steering arm), problem is most likely the seal on the vertical steering shaft. This shaft connects the steering arm to the gimble ring. Problem can be confirmed by visually checking for water coming from just below the steering arm with boat in water, or residue starting in same area with boat out of water. If this is confirmed to be the problem, repair is quite extensive. Entire transom assembly needs to be taken apart - sometimes requires removal of engine - then the seal can be replaced and the transom assembly put back together. Other items to check in the area would be the wiring for trim sender and limit switch and through hull gear lube fitting (if boat is new enough).
