Boats, Gear and Gadgets / Re: osmosis on aluminium boat
« Last post by morrie on Today at 08:32 PM »
Thanks so much guys for the in depth replies. My last little Clark aluminium lasted 40 years and was still sound when I sold it. Always a worry with aluminium boats, operating in a hostile environment, we have to be so careful to protect our investment.

Fishing / Canoeing on wyaralong dam first time
« Last post by DenTA22 on Today at 07:49 PM »
Hi I went to try out my new home made canoe today on the dam, I took along a rod and some lures but had no luck. I've never really been fresh water fishing. I saw a heap of Carp and would like to have a go at catching these to do my bit to help eradicate this pest. Also wouldn't mind someone coming along to give me some pointers. I'm planing on going out again possibly Friday for another go hopefully a bit better prepared.

OK so on saturday morning I got the gearbox back, new seals and impellor brought it up to $430,I attached a pic of the new caseing and how its supposed to look compared to the other pic of the damaged one! much better than I had first thought so after chore's etc I started the reassembley in the early arvo!
Well I had a small amount of drama lining up the selector rod to its slot, had to adjust all sorts of things to get it all together n ready!  rolled the boat out and fired it up!!!  well it was supposed to start but didnt!
I then found myself going all over the motor looking for a broken wire or a plug I may have knocked apart but everything was good!  tried to jump starting the thing off the 4X4 coz I thought the battery was low but nope, still wouldn't fire, would turn easy but not fire! I tried everything but all was lost
So by this time its dark, everything underfoot is soaked from the water running through the muffs and its time to give it away and have beers and tea!
This morning I returned to have another shot!  got one of the kids in the boat to shift gears while I watched everything moving and working! I noticed that the 2nd start in gear sensor on the engine block wasnt being triggered when the control was in neutral, theres  a sensor in the control at the healm and another on the motor so the donk cant start if either the gearbox or throttle control are not in neutral position! basic science to anyone who has removed a boat gearbox before but news to me ha ha !  So now I got the water on and get the young bloke to kick it in the guts while I hold the sensor button in......Boom off she went! was over the moon she's going again, I noticed a bit of play in the controller when shifting gears so I made some adjustments to help it out, we then ran it for a couple of minutes then shut it down!
I then went about putting all covers on  and tidying up!  before I put the boat away I thought id fire it up again just to make myself feel good! so muffs back and away we go!  alls good so far but I then notice its not changing into forward until im quite a long way through the shifter gate on the throttle. So now all covers are back off and were back looking at adjustments again, I then find out that I have moved the selector rod out of its height adjustment too far from when I took the box off, Apparently its common to lose where the calibration point is for the height of the rod to hook up to the selector shaft up top.  this was also news to me so I then spent the next 3 hrs dropping the box just enough to turn the selector rod but not remove all the bolts and then doing it up again, starting the motor and checking where the kick in point is for each gear then undoing it all then repeating again Grrrr, I made the mistake of adjusting things I shouldn't have adjusted and now im in no mans land!  the kids took turns at shifting the throttle control so I could get it just right, It was a team effort in the end that got us through!
So now she's all good to go and haul some fish over the side!  I must say ive experienced the highs of the highs and the lows of the lows with this repair, just glad to come out the other end all happy n cherry!
Merry xmas everyone and thanks for watchin!

Bretty!
