    I have a 1983 30ft Scarab S-Type w/twin 330 TRS outdrives. I am experiencing while driving at any speed on plane a condition where my steering veers on it's own either to the left or right. When I compensate to the opposite side it veers drastically to the other side & I cannot control the...

    At the end of 9 laps, water temp was 280 degrees. Vanes intact and block flows water freely. The shaft of the pump turns roughly/grainy.... Are the bearings replaceable or do I need a new pump :confused: Anyone know where I can get new bearings?

    I have a 1986 Dana ss 21 foot with inboard outboard set up. It has a Volvo 290 outdrive. For some reason my power steering fluid is building up so much pressure it is spraying out of the cap. If I drive it 10 minutes and check the power steering fluid level its almost dry and have to fill it...

    Hello all, I have recently purchased my Eliminator Eagle that has a 454 MPI/Bravo One. When out on the lake this last weekend, I noticed the onset of a loud squeaking, which I had thought to be my serpentine belt. Upon further inspection, I noticed a couple of issues. First, all pulleys are...

    So yesterday was the first time putting my Placecraft in the water since finishing the build. I have a calgo steering setup and it was in the boat when I bought the hull. On the trailer it seemed to be ok and would turn both left and right with minimal tension. Now I dont know if that is...

    Ran into an issue while replacing my shaft seal. When I took everything apart, I noticed that the shaft had been wearing on the side of the log. I thought maybe it was because of a worn seal or something. Now that I have the new parts from D21, I'm in the middle of putting it back together. Once...

    My 92 Eliminator has dual 20 gallon tanks and one gauge. I have a 2 position toggle switch wired to the gauges, when I select the left tank it registers the fuel in the tank and I pull fuel from that tank and vice versa when I select the right tank. At this point I am only pulling and...

    I recently bought a 1998 CA Performance and it has a 454 punched out to a 468. I'm pretty sure the pump is stock. The previous owner told me that he had the GPS at 74 mph. One of my buddies had the same setup that I am running and he had his GPS at 80 mph. I took my boat to the river and the...

    Well I have a few questions, 1st question is, the magna flow pump seems to have a bigger drive or slot at the end of the shaft than my original neovane, I measured and its about .050 , the cam drive slot that fits in the pump shaft is a little smaller, I don't think this will be a problem so I...
