Carbon Fiber Prop Coating

I wonder if anyone has had the experience of applying any product to their carbon fiber prop to make it slicker and easier to keep clean? I know Sensenich will do it for a fee, but I would like to try something on my own.

Replacing Gearbox to Flywheel Bushings

The green gearbox to flywheel bushings on my 500 Caddy have started to disintegrate and need to be replaced. Where can they be purchased and is there any special procedure that needs to be followed to install them? Gearbox is a Stinger 1.7/1.

Would it be good to use Amsoil 250 in my Stinger 1.7/1 that is fairly old instead of 75/140?

Oklawaha Prairie Snipe

This area is basically an overgrown swamp with very little likelihood of holding many snipe or being hunted on foot. How FWC decided to make it a snipe quota area is hard to understand.

Re: Need info. On hunting Oklawaha Prairie

Snipe prefer areas where there is very little water or just muddy ground as you may know. I would think gators would only be a problem in or adjacent to deep water. Have you seen them well away from open water? I would think snakes would be a bigger threat to a dog.

Need info. On hunting Oklawaha Prairie

I have a snipe permit for Oklawaha Prairie and have not been there before. I wondered if anyone that has hunted there before might shed some light on the area in regard to water depth, boat use, best areas for snipe or anything else important to know beforehand?

Re: Need help to find steering cable.

Thanks for the info. Mako told me they only make 3/8" cables with 8" travel. I'll check out Teleflex or the other sources.
