Didnt quite make it.
Theres a blockage between the filler bottle and the leg so they couldnt fill the gearbox up.

Theres a few other small things needs doing like earth the fuel tank.

Put a fuse straight off the battery.

Battery isolator.

Trailer needs tyres.

They said it looks good, i just gotta pull the drive to see whats going on.

Hopefully its nothing too major Juddy. All the other stuff looks pretty easy to get sorted.
Keep plugging away at it. It'll be on the water before you know it!

Nice work Juddy, old school fault finding. The manual would never suggest plugged line.

There wasnt much on the internet either.
Heaps of guys telling u how to fill it 10 different ways but nothing about blockages.

It was only because the transom was open with no hoses for 6 months.

Cut a hole in the fuel tank for a fuel level sender and didnt blow up.
Aluminiums supposedly doesnt spark so I just took it easy and drowned it in lanolin INOX.

Ran pretty good, it sits low in the ass. Might have to throw a few bags of cement up the nose to get it down.

Only issues we had was we lost oil pressure (15-20psi) when we backed off to a idle
Im hoping its just the angle of the boat and the pick up or its pooling somewhere. At speed its (50psi)

Woo Hoo. Success! I like the flash of smile in the 2nd video. That is a smile of satisfaction!

I don't think it is that low in the rear end. It is a rear mount.

Some nose weight may be worth experimenting with though. We ran a bit of weight in the nose of our old outboard for years and it helped keep it level.

The oil pressure doesn't sound all that low to me. A rule of thumb is that engines need about 10 psi per 1000 RPM. If you idle at about 800 RPM that would seem about right. Rules of thumb are just that so don't take it as gospel, but I think you are in the right ballpark.

I reckon that scoop looks bloody cool :) Possibly not suited to a brand new wake boat, but on yours it is spot on.

Yeah its pretty mad max looking.
Just sussing out a spare fuel pump, not sure what pressure the old one is but ive gone from a ~420cfm carb to a 700cfm.
Back to work tomorrow so hopefully this rain clears up and i can go for another squirt in it.

The low oil pressure light comes on, its supposabley come on at 5 psi.
I'll see if i can beg, borrow or steal a set of gauges off a mate to suss it all out.
