  1. Decided that for piece of mind I should replace the impellers in my ballast pumps. PO said that one didn't fill as fast as others, but never checked the impellers. Figured I would snap some pics along the way. I also don't think I've seen any posts showing the steps. For consistency with my last post on a scale of "Anyone Can Do This" (1) to "Pay Someone Else" (10)... This project is a "1" very quick and easy. Uses only tools that everyone should have around the house. Standard screwdriver, and possibly Philips screwdriver. I also used a mechanics pick, but only because it was alre
  2. I’ll go out and see if I’m missing anything I’d like. Did your parts boat have the master craft cruise control? A previous owner installed perfect pass so the original cruise doesn’t work. I’d like to replace that panel with one that doesn’t have switch holes in it.
  3. Thanks berndtmj and Rugger. I've learned a lot from forums over the years, and thought that this was a good time to start giving back. It does make easy to see how simple some of these things are in the end. Rugger, I actually read your Glide system post before ordering the Flex Gland. I was looking for it or something similar when I found the new style. Figured I would try it, since without the waster attachment it would be a little more straightforward.
  4. When I purchased this boat it had a leaking dripless seal around the prop shaft. After looking around I decided to go with the new style OJ flex gland. Seemed like it wouldn't be too difficult to install. https://i2.wp.com/www.ojprops.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/OJ-Props-Flex-Gland.jpg?fit=1000%2C1000&ssl=1 https://www.ojprops.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/OJIconIpad.png Flex Gland Shaft Seal System - Johnson Propeller Company Inc.

  5. This year I decided that towing with surge brakes is not my idea of a good time. Based on that I did some research and settled on electric over hydraulic as the best option for my boat trailer. Shortly after converting to electric over hydraulic, I decided to buy a new(er) boat. This time I documented the process so that I could share here. Why don't I like surge brakes? I don't like the feeling of the trailer sliding when I start and stop while driving. It just bothers me. I currently tow behind a truck with a truck camper on board. The action of the trailer pushing int
  6. This is the brake kit that I used in my post. Will need 1 set per wheel for the trailer: from: etrailer.com : Titan Disc Brake Assembly - 10" Hub/Rotor - 5 on 4-1/2 - Dacromet - 3,500 lbs Attention Required! | Cloudflare WWW.ETRAILER.COM These ones are a better deal, and probably fit better (The Kodiak calipers are smaller, making brake rotor and wheel clearance less of a concern). Kodiak Disc Brake, 10" Integral Rotor / Hub Style, 5 X 4.5" Bolt Pattern, Dacromet Finish, Sold As Each WWW.TRAILERPARTSDEPOT.COM Kodiak
  7. Thanks! I will post some links to the parts I used, after I get off work. I also need to make a post about adding the electric over hydraulic system too. I’ll add my parts list to that also.
  8. Over the weekend I decided to tackle a project on my trailer. Recently purchased a used X10, but the trailer needed some love. Brakes don't work, bearings and seals were never serviced, and the trailer guides were a little wobbly. Digging in the trailer guides were broken at the frame and one had been "repaired" with self taping screws and aluminum angle. https://content.invisioncic.com/r268692/monthly_2020_09/1050879219_IMG_1702(2).jpg https://content.invisioncic.com/r268692/monthly_2020_09/1050879219_IMG_1702(2).jpg.5736b4b55c3afecd96e15be6b4d2e02a.jpg https://conte
  9. Mentioned in my last post that the brakes didn't work. I was planning to convert to a electric over hydraulic system anyway, so great brakes wasn't a priority when buying the boat. However, I was hoping that they would work some to save some money. After finding out that they weren't working I decided to bleed them and get them doing something before making the trip home. I was near some family, so I stopped by their house and used their drive way to get these things working. It was about 4 PM and I wanted to leave first thing in the morning. Great news though... the
