No way a five blade 66 will work on a go-435. Most are 260 to the gear box.

Re: What gps do you like?

I just got the lowrance elite7hdi. It came with the navonics gold card and a $100 dollar rebate. Which made it the same price as the 5" garmin or lowrance. Right at $600. Hard to beat that. It's still on sale for another month I believe

Pe-90 carb issues

Looking for some recommendations for an alternate carb. It has a Holley 350 on it now but seems like it's running out of fuel. It has the stock jets. It's a stock gpu ,no upgrades at all.

Re: Spray tank liquid

That poly control 2 is the same as liquid polymer. They are great just dilute them to the consistency of water. They way they don't clog Up the pump. They are a
