    Note on pollution. Lake Tahoe , in California and nevada now ban all 2 stroke water craft. Pyramid lake in Nevada allows PWC but charges double daily fees. $9 BOAT- $ 18 PWC Going in the right direction.

    thermostat replacement

    Question on thermostat replacement. Eng 5.0 mpi, year 05 is there an easy way to remove the plastic sleeve that holds it in the housing or should the sleeve be replaced as well ?

    Bow anchor for 246ssi

    Did the same as Brian. Cut the cross bar, if the shank is to long you can cut and drill a new hole and put a heavy ring in. If $ are not a problem, buy the chap anchor.

    I did the same thing on my 5.0 mpi this winter,destroyed the filter. Stumped until I saw my super size channel locks hanging on my tool board. Clamped them at the base of the filter next to the mount. Came right off no more damage. Next year this is my first filter tool.
