crankshaft key

Thank you Macgyver, That figures out what I did wrong. I only tightened it as hard as I could holding the flywheel by hand #-o . Atleast the keys are cheap. Live and Learn :)

No Kill Switch

I got my cut off switch at boaters world and you would wire the normally open contacts to the positive side of the coils so they would short together when the lanyard is pulled. I am in the process of doing mine but I ran into the problem. So it will be delayed for little while. Fowlmood posted a li...

Kill switch or not to kill switch

What is tthe mechanism you us to ground the coils? Is the kill switch a push button or lynard type? If push button type, us the normally closed connectors, when you push it opens circut. Put the switch in between the coils and what ever you are using to groundd them now. My motor did not have any t...

Kill switch or not to kill switch

Alright I bought a kill switch, but when I got it home it is not what I thought. It has four connectors two are normally open and two are normally closed. I know the normally closed will not do anything for me. Right now I am grounding out the coils to shut the motor down. I cannot do that with only...

Kill switch or not to kill switch

I am thinking I am going to go ahead and add one to the outboard. They are not that expensive and not that hard to wire up. It sounds like some of you have heard of somone getting bounced out and I really dont want to be one of those.

Kill switch or not to kill switch

Do you have a tiller or remote steering? It's the law in Louisiana. In LA you also have to wear a life jacket while underway on a tiller driven boat. I had a accident with a rouge wave and every since then I have used it. Its a tiller steer motor. I dont think its a law in FL. (I will check and mak...

something to ponder?

Quachita, I saw that awhile back. I really like what you did nice and clean. That is what I will do next if this does not work out for me. Right now I am using the stuff I have laying around the house. (wife says I have too much money wrapped up in my "cheap" fishing boat as it is) :). I will see ho...

something to ponder?

How are you gathering your bait? Cast net? A lot of those guys can't handle being handled. Just the fact that they get trapped in a net and then grabbed and put in a bucket is a death sentence for them. Yes I am using a net. I never thought about touching them. I know trout are sensitive to human t...

something to ponder?

Thanks Guys for all yhe great ideas. Im going to vent the lid and see how that holds up. Bassboy, My bait dont have red noses they are just floating.Pin fish have no problem with (they are durable), the problem lies with the greenies which I know tend to die alot easier then other bait. Thanks again...
