SoCal Lakes / Quick question...
« on: April 03, 2018, 05:54:59 PM »
Hey guys! I was going to take the boat out to lake perris in 2 weeks. Was planning on bringing my 2 dogs with the family. After reading their site it says no dogs allowed on the beach. Dogs are allowed in the boat but not in the water. I was hoping to find a local lake that we can take the dogs with us so they can play in the water. Can anybody steer me in the right direction? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Trailers / Chinese wheel bearings?
« on: March 14, 2018, 03:01:33 PM »
I am replacing the wheel bearings on a trailer I just bought. The bearings that came out are koyo brand made in the USA.  I was looking online and all I see is bearings that are made in China. Is there a big difference in quality here? Does anyone have experience with these Chinese made bearings? Where can I go to buy USA made bearing kits? Any help or info on this subject is greatly appreciated!

Jet Pumps / Ever seen one this bad?
« on: January 22, 2018, 03:03:34 PM »
So I started my pump rebuild project today and I thought some of you may get a kick out of this. I just bought the boat and was trying to figure out why it was so slow. I think I figured it out... Pics below are of my impeller hahaha!

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Starter sound like it needs a shim?
« on: December 12, 2017, 03:53:02 PM »
Hey fellas! Was having issues with my starter making noises so i pulled it off and found one of the bolts was broken. Got new starter bolts and had the starter tested at AutoZone and they said it's fine. I put it back on and it's still making the noise. Does this sound like it might need to be shimmed?

Jet Pumps / Impeller damage too much to fix?
« on: December 07, 2017, 05:48:23 PM »
I was checking out the impeller in a boat I recently bought and it looks pretty banged up. I was hoping someone could tell me if this could be repaired or if I need to buy a new one. Thanks guys!

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / What's with the price gap for starters?!?!
« on: November 30, 2017, 04:19:01 PM »
So I'm in the process of replacing the starter on my 4.3 volvo. I know I need to use a marine starter so I go online and search and come up with several options in the $50-$75 range that all say they are marine starters. When I call my local shop they quoted me $250 for a marine starter. That's a huuuuge price gap... So are the ones I am finding online not really marine starters? or is the shop stacking huge profit margins? Can anybody fill me in here? I want a decent marine starter for my application but I would also like to save $200 if possible. Thanks in advance, any help is greatly appreciated 😁👍😎

Jet Pumps / Looking for volvo pump info or manual
« on: November 24, 2017, 12:00:20 PM »
Hey guys I just bought my first boat recently. I took it out for a run and it ran great but really slow(30mph). Now it's not supposed to be a fast boat but I feel it should run faster than this. I was looking inside the pump and I see a few rocks wedged in the stator vanes. I tried to get them out but they just fell back inside the bowl. I am looking for a manual for my volvo pjx pump so I can take it apart with confidence. I'm not super mechanically inclined but I'm also not a moron haha. I just want to make sure I put it back together correctly and it would also be nice to find some maintenance info so I can take care of it properly. Anybody have a lead on where I might find a manual for this pump? Boat is a 1999 larson 176 with a volvo 4.3 litre.
