  1. Power Pole Service

    Thanks, everyone. I'll relay this information to my friend. Brian
  2. Power Pole Service

    Ahhh! I'll tell him. Thanks! Brian
  3. Pull the transducer cable through the bilge. Why bother with the tube? PITA!! Brian
  4. Power Pole Service

    Hmm.... didn't ask him that. He was told by a PP dealer that some of the older PP's has a lifetime warranty on the piston, but that he needed a serial no. on the unit. No luck finding it though
  5. Fishfinder/Chartplotter HELP!

    I talked to Garmin about replacing my old 178C. What I learned was that for shallow water fishing, which is 95% of what I do, I don't need any fancy-schmancy fish fining technology. I wen wit the EchoMap Chirp 54CV which is a god size for my 16RF. Of course, I am not a techy-smart guy, so simpler is always better in my book, I've been out guys who have the to of the line stuff and al they do is push buttons instead of fishing. Just sayin'....

  6. Power Pole Service

    Hello all... a buddy has an older power pole that has a bad seal in the hydraulic piston inside the "clamshell" of the power pole. No one here in Vero seems to be able to service it. Any ideas? Thanks, in advance! Brian
  7. Ignition Switch Replacement

    Thanks guys! I'll pull the switch and see what I have. Brian
  8. Ignition Switch Replacement

    This looks a bit more complicated than what you described. BTW it is an F115
  9. Has anyone out there replaced the ignition switch on their Yamaha? I have noticed some black goo coming off the switch housing. I looked at replacement switched and it looks a bit complicated, considering the small space in which to work. Anyone? Thanks! Brian
  10. 2 GPS/Fishfinder head units for sale

    Is the Garmin still available? If so will it take the Garmin 178C transponder and power cable? Thanks, Brian
  11. Hydraulic Fluid

    And where does one find such an item?
  12. Hydraulic Fluid

    A question for you motorheads out there. What type/grade/service hydraulic fluid do I use to fill my Yammy trim/tilt reservoir? Is that the same for the steering? Many thanks! Brian
  13. GPS PLotter Replacement

    Thanks, Don. I sent Dino a message. Brian

    Dino, do you know if it takes the same Transducer/Power plug as the 178C? Brian
  15. GPS PLotter Replacement

    I have a Garmin 178C on my 16 Redfisher. Right size and features, BUT the screen gets "burned". This is my second one and as they are now discontinued by Garmin. I am looking for a replacement. The Garmin people recommended a 547 (?) but said that the transducer and power plugs do not match and that there may be an adapter so I can use my existing TD. Does anyone out there have a recommendation? I do not want to have to run a new transducer cable. Getting too old for that stuff. Thanks!
