    Fishing pro stores sells transducer and devices for modern green box and sonar devices. I am sure thy can provide transducer and cables. Contact them and ask if modern parts can fit in yours one.
    The best place for finding vintage spares it is always ebay, have also a look over there.
    In the meanwhile , if you can give me model number or model name at least, I can try to find cable and transducer that surely fits your model.

    I tried to find a transducer for old green box, but I found none at the moment.
    I dont think you can adapt a modern transudcer like this hummingbirds here

    You need to monitor ebay for a while and grab the parts when you find them, when you search on ebay put fish-lo-k-tor, it is the real name for the green box.
    You can also periodically check this ads in here sometimes green box spares pop up

    best regards

    I found the transducer for $10.99, the cable should be included, ask them if they sell the bracket.

Could you please tell me the transom angle on a 2006 lund,SSV 14,need to know,to mount a transducer correctly.thanks

Don't over think this. Mount your transducer so it will set parallel to the lake bottom when the boat is in the water. If your off by a degree or two it will not affect your sonar performance. The human eye can measure differences in angle down to about 1/10th of an inch. "Eyeball it" and you will be good to go.

I getting ready to order a 1197 unit. The box states that it has the in dash mounts. Do you know if the unit comes with the knobs & u bracket to mount unit on side of concol? Thanks

It does come with everything in the box you need to rig your boat. If you are going to rig it on a fiberglass boat I would mount the Side Imaging transducer right under the jackplate and make sure you can see from side to side without anything blocking it on either side of the transducer. Then I would epoxy a transducer (XP 9 20) in the hull of the for high speed readings and then use a Y cable (AS SIDB Y) to tie the 2 transducer together.

I have an Eagle Fisheasy fish finder & need to replace transducer do not know witch one to get. All i know is,it is a wide angle skimmer with a two prong connection

You can find out which one is serving the device you wish to repair by waving a small spade or wide metal object about a foot from each of the existing transducers and have someone else monitoring the insruments on the concole.

383c transducer gives nothing but noisy red feedback at medium or high speeds

If it works at low speeds fine but has problems at higher speeds, basically you need to lower the transducer down further as it is lifted by the boat at higher speeds, or is getting caught in the turbulence of surface water created at higher speed. Lower the transducer a half inch at a time and re-test.

A65 Transducer


Sound like your getting turbulence from the hull or your angle is allowing cavitation under the transducer. Look under the hull where the traducer is mounted and look for a part that has no obstruction including saltwater pickups, hull relieves, etc. The other thing to check is to take a strait edge on the bottom of the transducer to ensure the angle is slightly forward than the hull.

Installing an old used lowrance fish finder

I don't think your old fish finder is the LMS-332C GPS Receiver listed above in the description. You don't need the speed wheel for the fish finder to function just the transducer and transducer mount. You should mount that on the back of the boat towards the center but not too close to the motor and not too close to the side of the board. Don't let it hand below the level of the boat. That should keep it from getting hit by the trailer or dragging on the bottom. Try to make it as level as possible. The green and white wires may be for the speed wheel but i'd need a model number for clarification. Hope this helps.
