    I've had vapor lock issues on my boat before and from what you described in your original post it just doesn't sound like vapor locking. If it's going to vapor lock, it should do it on the initial...

    Quick and easy things to check first. Lanyard switch and transmission linkage. I say those only because you're getting nothing when you try to start it. The lanyard is pretty obvious but I've had...

    Just a thought, but I'd be paying very close attention to the engine temp and checking your impeller and cooling system. It might be a little bit of a stretch but I had something similar happen to...

    I'd personally consider finding an equipment rental company or a local contractor and see how much it would cost to get a backhoe for an hour or two. Use some lifting straps and attach it to the...

    I changed mine with the tires on, no problem and very little mess. An allen wrench with the ball head on it helps so you can turn it from an angle. If you can find a socket type allen wrench that...

    Check the pump manifold where the strainer and valves are. The valves that control the water flow are solenoids and are pretty much the same as those used for water sprinkler systems. There should...

    Hmmmmmm.....I don't know about your setup, but I specifically remember on my '03 LS with the hard tank that the drain pump would pump the water out of the hull fitting and not back out the fill port.

    Good luck. I had the same thing happen with my white 21V. Gas expanded, ran out the filler and the rub rail channeled it around to the back of the boat where it ran down the hull. I keep my boat...

    I doubt the ball valve on the tank will keep the water from running out of the line for very long but it probably helps a little. The pressure switch can be kind of a pain to mess with. If your...

    It's also never a bad idea to fill the oil filter before installing it. It will save the engine a little wear and tear by not have to fill it the first time you start it up after the oil change.

    Sounds like you've got a voltage sensitive relay on your '08. Who makes the ones that they're using on the new boats? I may upgrade from my switch to one of these so I don't have to worry about it.
