  1. Sounds like a fuel delivery problem. Hopefully it’ll be resolved soon. Keep us posted. Could be that nugget of info that helps the next person spend more time on the water.
  2. Did you run it after crankshaft position sensor was changed? Did it run well? Not sure what “normal” operating psi of fuel system is. Is there a fuel/water separator? May need to be changed. Plugs? Wires? If those check out fine, I’d talk with the mechanic that did the work. Could’ve adjusted something a little off causing the problem.
  3. 1991 ski centurion falcon

    Get a hold of Centurion and give them you hull ID #. They may be able to point you in the right direction. Take measurements and pictures for reference. Local boat shops could be a source? Also see if a boat salvage company may have parts from a similar model. Good luck
  4. I have a 2005 T5 and I believe it’s between 250-300# bag. You can always add a smaller bag in floor ski locker to help. DD’s can be surfed. You’ll have to fill rear bag and maneuver bodies to help with weight. I’d say that an intermediate level could do it. Won’t have the same size wave or push of a surf boat, but can be done. Good luck.
  5. Looking for help on Faria GSC002A multi Speedo. The gague was stuck at 50. I'd like to see if the gauge is bad, or the paddle wheel sensor. So I read somewhere about Faria tachs, that you could reset them by using a magnet. Basically drag the magnet over the needle toward zero. So I thought I'd give it a try on the Speedo. It worked! The needle is set at zero. I hooked all the wiring back up. Well, after turning the key on and looking like a Jack wagon spinning the paddle wheel, I got no reading on the Speedo. I've talked with Faria and for $130 they'll fix the gauge and warranty it for three years. If paddle wheel sensor is shot then I'll go with GPS unit. I'd still like to see if the gauge works. Any ideas Gurus?
  6. Give Great Lakes Skipper a try. They may have the tower bolt you need.
  7. Just wanted to thank Wakemakers for shipping new prop from Oregon to Michigan in 2 days. Flipping sweet! Also, thanks to the countless threads on good companies to purchase from. Admin, could we start a "Crew Trusted" link? Might be easier to do a search for needed parts/service from trusted places under a special link instead of multiple crew post. Just my .02.
  8. Welcome to the Crew! My suggestion is when you have a question or issue come up, post and I'm sure your fellow Enzo group will step in with ideas and solutions. If your manual is anything like mine, the info on this forum far exceeds the book. Plus these guys have a hands on knowledge that's better than drawings.
  9. Tube rope. Funny how those tube ropes find their way on to a ski boat.
  10. I know that everyone's busy with driving family and friends around,or maybe just chillin' in a cove with some tunes and pops. Be "that Guy"(or Girl) that notices the other boat that seems to have not moved in a while. Don't worry if you think you're bothering someone, it's easy to ask if they need help. Maybe they're having problems with their boat and feel funny asking for help. Be "That Guy" that turns his expensive toy into a trash hauler,or log transportation rig. I know you don't want to mess up everything you've worked hard on paying for and maintaining, it might be the thing you do that keeps someone from a ruined weekend, or large insurance claim. Be "That Guy" that creeps through a shallow channel and sees a log with a bunch of prop whiskey licks on it, that gets out and moves it knowing it could be your prop that gets saved next time. Not judging here, I'm not perfect by any means. A bent prop from this weekend starred this thread. After creeping into a channel I caught a log on my prop. Slowly got to a nearby sandbar and anchored for the day. Luckily, my father in-law was their with his pontoon. We went back to the spot where the incident occurred. I picked up the submerged 10 foot log that had maybe a dozen prop licks on it and tossed in the woods. My reward, a standing ovation from 3 boats waiting to go through the channel. Oh and a $500 order o Wakemakers for a new prop and prop puller. Feel free to start a "That Guy" thread of your own. Could be a good or bad thing to be "That Guy"
  11. Check your transmission fluid, spark plugs, wires? Even heard of new distributor caps having cracks in them. I'd try the trans fluid first and go from there. Welcome to the Crew.
  12. Be "That Guy"

    You guys have restored faith in boat humanity. Keep good karma going! Good posts guys. I pulled a buddy back to his dock because of a dead battery. Figured I need help at some point and it was the right thing to do.
  13. Be "That Guy"

    Honestly, I think most boaters know what it's like to need help. Probably you guys that have been boating for years, have done your fair share. I'll say "thank you" and "cheers". You're the reason why it's a great community. I think I'd take a chance on helping a stranded boat liability or no liability. How's that turd going to know you even own the boat you towed his with?! I'm sure your insurance company has a lawyer that would love to expose a guy like that.
  14. Fat sac full in rear locker and 5 kid ballast. My buddy normally surfs behind a Malibu. He said wake was decent with good push.
  15. Just thought I'd check the trans cooler. PO had impeller changed before I bought the boat last year. Direct Drive 5.7 MAG MPI cooler is located behind engine above transmission. My temp has been fine, running about 175. To my amazement, I pulled out some old impeller pieces and a few weeds. Might want to put it on the checklist of things to do.
  16. Thought I'd clean the under side hull of my boat. Was looking for something not to aggressive, but would still take the dirty water marks off. I had some 2" Velcro from a project left over. So I cut a piece of the loop (soft) portion to use as a scrubber. You can use any cleaner, but I chose Simple Green. Pretty impressed with the results.
  17. Sorry, before and after pics loaded in the wrong order.
  18. I'm all about having fun on your toy, or the one your parents purchased, but damn those guys ride to close. Lake Lice is what I call them. Sometimes boat drivers are just as bad. Have a bunch of spotters on the boat, more eyes help.
  19. I'd like to know what these factory guys are doing to the boats. As tough as these things are, what kind of hell can cause these problems? Hook that sucker up and do a diagnostic. See how at least the motor was treated. Might give some insight. Maybe the factory rider had issues and gave it back,who knows. Good luck Dark and feel free to let loose here.
  20. I have a T-5 and think with a bunch of extra ballast you can surf it. Now, if surfing is your main goal, don't mess around, get a more surf type boat. I think that you'll have less headaches dialing in a good surf wave than trying to make a ski boat surf. You'll have to decide if it's worth the hassle/cost to make a ski/wakeboard boat surf, or throw down extra money for a surf boat that can ski/wakeboard. Welcome to the crew and good luck.
  21. Flat out sucks Dark. Thumbs up to the dealer. You're getting very little use and headaches out of a "new" boat. The dealer is taking most/all of the warranty hit. Seems like the boat manufacturer would step in and say enough is enough? I understand things happen, but when a normal guy wants to slap down the kind of cheddar these boats garner, there should be some kind of protocol on making it right. Not just nickel and dime fixes. How about, we are so sorry for your troubles, give us the boat. We will diagnose and make it right. In the meantime, you can use a factory New boat until a decision is made. Heck, you get to drive a loaner when you take your car in for service(some cars). Rant over.
  22. Check engine light

    Might need a boat trailer to bring a generator along.
  23. I just wish I had all those pimps to label. Ha!
  24. Battery should be big enough. What's the likelihood that there was a bad run on starters/solenoid? When was the last time you checked the distributor cap, rotor, and plugs? Might not solve the clicking noise, but it will sure help know the cheaper stuff doesn't factor into the equation. Check the connection on the start battery. If you have a battery selector switch, check that too. I had to replace both my batteries this year because of a no start issue. Had enough juice to run it one day, then the next time, no runny. Have a buddy help, it's a good excuse to acquainted with the boat and everyone needs an assistant (insert favorite beer brand here).
