  1. I have a 1998 ski centurion elite direct drive. The steering has gotten very stiff and I think its time to replace the steering cable. Does anyone have a part # for the cable?
  2. Awesome, cool video. I bought my 6 year old grandson a traxxas stampede 4x4 vxl that is has been tearing around with.
  3. Hey Timr71, beautiful boat I see it around on other fourms that we both belong to. I have a 98 ski centurion elite with the 350MPI motor. It has been a great boat and I have no complaints. Wish I could post some pictures.
  4. 50% white vinegar and 50% water to get rid of water spots for me. Once a year a cut and buff with Mequires marine polish or depending on the real bad areas a heavier cutting compound. Follow up with a good waxing with Mequires marine wax. I trailer, so every time it comes out it gets wiped down and then a quick spray wax.
  5. Thanks daz28iroc. That's my plan is to lock tight them.
  6. I have a 1998 Elite open bow direct drive, I just hit 1000 hours this last weekend. I noticed a noise that I thought was coming from the motor but after further inspection it was the output of the transmission where the drive shaft and transmission meet at a coupler. There was 6 bolts that were finger tight and must have been causing the vibration. Has this happened to anyone else? I guess I will add it to my must check list. I wish I could post a picture to better show what I am describing.
  7. How many hours do you have?

  8. 94 Falcon Project

    Skibumm, Post some pictures when you can. I am interested in this project. I have a 1998 Elite ob that I would like to add LED lighting as well as stereo upgrade.
  9. What is the best way to change the oil in a 98 ski centurion elite with the 350 MPI ski motor? It has the tube hooked to the top of the motor that comes from the oil pan. Do I fish the tube under the motor and down through the bilge drain plug hole? I do not have a oil extractor pump. Also what oil do you guys suggest.
  10. I have a 98 elite open bow and I agree with skibumm, your never going to be able to dial in the wake to get it flat enough to really be able to ski aggressive or be able to ski short line. Any thing shorter then 15' off is damn near impossible. My boat is best for free skiing and just going out to carve a few turns and throw some spray. Great family boat though.
  11. I know most of you like big ,huge waves, but I need to ask if there is any way to make my ski wake a little flatter? I have a wake plate and it has some adjustment arms on it but I haven't touched them. Right now im at 15' off and speed is 32-34. Skibum, I'm hoping you might have some advice.
  12. Changing the prop out tonight. Wish me luck
  13. Sure would love to see some pictures of that new carbon pro! Even better would be to ski behind it!
  14. Trailer winch

    I cant seem to post pictures here. Nothing is lose or bent, but only one tooth in the sprocket engages in the spool take up. Weird.
  15. I was loading up the boat last night, and had to use the crank the last few feet when it start skipping. I backed a little further in the water so there was less weight to crank up and dragged the boat out. As I was wiping it down I noticed the the gears in the winch assembly didn't line up all the way. Any fixes for this? Maybe add a few spacers to line it back up?
