  1. Hello! I have a Chaparral 260 2004 and I was cleaning the engine compartment when I noticed the lube oil container was half way down, I tracked and didn't see anything! until I checked the outdrive and saw a small leak! I look on youtube and they talk about replacing the gasket, which I believe It is to keep the bearing greased. any help here or recommendations. thank you so much. pictures are in the link if they can assist. https://flic.kr/p/2k1B9gp
  2. Hey all, I am currently on the hunt for my first boat and came across this 2006 Chaparral 276 SSi from https://www.boattrader.com/boat/2006-chaparral-276-ssi-7422852/ it has pretty low engine hrs but I am not experienced in these engines or out drive. Can anyone say yay or nay on this boat simply by looking at the stats? Motor: 8.1 Liter Volvo OSi DuoPropHP: 375Outdrive: Volvo Penta 1.78 DPS-B (Installed New in 2015) Again, I’m new to boats and welcome all advice. I’ll be using it in salt/ brackish water. TIA
  3. Just washed boat and getting ready to go fishing for first time this year. Discovered this hole in the top part of my outdrive. I had the impeller replaced last October. What is missing and could the shop have forgot to replace? Thanks!
  4. Let me preface by saying that you all have been so helpful in the past, and it is greatly appreciated. I love this forum. Excuse the long paragraph, but I am trying to give all the details to something that no one has been able to figure out: I own a 2012 287 SSX with a Volvo 8.1 GI=J Dual prop. Just hit 200 hours. Bought the boat from The Boat Rack in NC in mint condition in November. My boating is East coast southern NJ salt water. Got caught in a thunderstorm last weekend and on the way in at about 45 mph, I hear a grinding noise, and small thump. Not a noise
  5. Considering purchasing a pre-owned 1999 2330 SSI. Current owner says he thinks gimble bearing needs to be replaced as he feels something in the out drive when he turns to the right. Any other items I should be concerned about or ask about? thanks, Joe 1998 Chaparral 2330 SS bowrider (24’) with a 5.7 L Mercruiser with Bravo 3 dual prop outdrive.
  6. I went fishing today, and after I loaded my boat on to the trailer I noticed some blue fluid on the ground. I checked the drive fluid reservoir in the boat, and as you can see by the pictures below it did not appear to be too low. This leak just started today because I've never noticed it before. I called my local marina to determine what the problem could be; however, due to the holiday weekend coming up they cannot look at my boat until after the holiday. So I did some poking around and took some pictures for you all. Initial leak seems to be due to a cracked or dry rotted line:

    Hi guys, just bought a 2000 196 SSI. I'm trying to figure out what exactly the engine and outdrive are? i have a 5.0 with a carb. 220hp? I'm just trying to figure out what the outdrive is? Is it an alpha gen 2? I want to buy the service manual so I can keep up with the regular maintenance of the engine and outdrive. Thanks Trep

  9. Have a 2000 240ssi with the 7.4mpi and Bravo 3. Shift cable, outdrive service, u joints, bellows... were all done this year. Shifting was extremely quiet & smooth, but it hesitated for 3 or 4 seconds going into reverse. Had the cone clutch, shift fork, and bearings replaced. There is no more hesitation going into reverse. Shifting into forward and reverse is instantaneouse, but it shifts into gear very hard. I almost feel bad putting it into gear sometimes. Didn't realize how bad it actually was until my friend was docking it for my while I was on the floater and I could hear it from 15 fe
  10. Hello everyone! Im new to the board and am in need of some help. While taking my 1994 24ft chaparral out for the first time this year, the outdrive locked up on me. Once we got it out of the water and had my mechanic look at it, we determined that there was an unknown crack in the foot of the outdrive that allowed all of the oil to drain out, running it dry. He determined that the entire outdrive needs to be replaced (foot cracked, gears destroyed). We currently have a twin prop bravo three outdrive, and that what we want to replace it with. My question is this: where can I order a new outdri

  12. Hello Newbies - copying and modifying this from an earlier post in hopes it might give some information to new and recently new boaters who are still getting acquainted with how to operate your new toy. Many new boaters are intimidated by the trim button, mainly because the boat seems to do okay when it's all the way down and if you accidentally raise it too high then you get a really disconcerting sound out of the back of your boat as your props blow out. So, better off to just leave it alone, right? Not really. It's not all that hard and there are some real benefits you will gain. You can ha
  13. I have a Chaparral 190 ssi with a volvo penta 4.3 liter v6. I am having to raplace the outdrive, because of a gear oil leak which resulted in a locked up outdrive. my current outdrive is a volvo sx. I have a friend who has a volvo dp outdrive. Does anyone know if the outdrives are compatible? Can I use the DP outdrive on my boat? Please let me know if you need more information. Thanks.
