Re: primer balls

James not sure you actually know what you are talking about. Continental fuel injection almost always will need the mechanical pump primed before it will start

Re: Liability insurance

All this talk about insurance got me thinking and I got a quote from Charter it seems very reasonable. What kind of limits are most people carring for personal liablity and pollution liability Is $100,000.00 enough for each?

Re: Rollers on trailers

Thanks for the replies and to Tonythedouche its not a problem of loading its an unloading problem. You see I go out by myself (im not afraid of the lake like you probably are) and I just thought it might make it easier to unload MORON

Re: Rollers on trailers

Thanks for the reply Cat. Didn't think it would be a good idea to let even a glass boat rest on the rollers but thought I would see what better minds thought. Looks like either try to engineer some retractable rollers or simply spray down the bunks as you suggest would be the best route

Rollers on trailers

Has anyone ever modified their trailer to have rollers that could be raised and lowered to make it easier to unload dry. Dad used to have a kicker boat trailer that you could do that with but it has been so many years ago that cant remember how it was engineeered. Or can you tell me it it would harm...

Continental engine surging

Have an IO-520 that just took out for my first extended ride today since i bought it. Going around the lake and through the marsh ran great but would suddenly start surging when I was crusing and various speeds. It would accellerate if I wanted to at just the touch of the gas, no stumble or anything...

Re: dura -skin report

Just got my blades back and MAN they look sweet. they had a couple nicks in them and were beginning to look pretty bad from all the exposure of the prevoius owner keeping it outside uncovered all the time.

Re: Fuel injection primer pump

its not an issue of whether the primer bulb works or not just trying to make it easier to control from the drivers seat. It might sound lazy but hey I'm not getting any younger and this boat is one cold natured son of a gun

Re: Fuel injection primer pump

Thanks for the feedback will probably try to find the Facet with 1/4 pipe fittings. The Facet pump I have now just has 1/8 pipe fittings and was afraid the step down in size might make a diff. under a heavy load but wanted some more informed opinions

It is a free flowing pump when no power is applied but it only has 1/8 in. pipe inlets and outlets. Has anyone...
