  • Tips on starting Ski Doo 583 with primer
    It was a broken recoil spring, about 2" on the end broke off. With help from the neighbor, we grinded down the end smooth, heating up and put a nice curl back in it, reassembled and worked as good as new!
  • Help! Ski-doo mx583
    2 stroke Snowmobiles only have oil in the fuel so there is no oil to leak out of the crank case. Probably just unburnt fuel and the oil on the front of the engine is probably leaking from the seal where the exhaust connects to the engine.

  • Fly Rod ID
    That's a pretty cool old rod, I bet it was a fairly good rod in its day, which was probably in the sixties. You don't see a lot of 3 piece glass rods, the reel seat isn't just a stamped metal thing, and the ferrules look to be high quality. Since it doesn't have any markings, it [...]
  • How to fix speedometer on 2007 Yamaha 115?
    It runs on water pressure; so, if it's not reading anything the water pressure is blocked somewhere. Did it work initially, and recently stop working, or has it never worked? marine_man
