  1. Awesome....mine turned out great, fits like a glove (cover is black...pic makes it look gray cause of position of sun). You can trailer with it too, several others with evolution swim covers have said they had no issues trailering with it installed, which I plan to do to protect it
  2. There is no filter for trans or v-drive You don't screw it in when checking level, it does specify that. Good idea to measure what you remove to put new fluid back in. Even a tiny funnel will be tough to not spill in that space...but I have a really long funnel with very small end that may end up working for this. Thanks for direction
  3. (2014 ZR409 CES) This had me confused since I only saw the dipstick for the v-drive and no separate transmission fill/dipstick. I see that Trans is listed as Dexron III in my manual....but in my manual the pics were confusing me at first and made me think the v-drive oil and transmission were the same (cause its called "PCM trans" & PCM v-drive trans"). I see now that it has pics of the system split apart and they are joined together. I looked more carefully at my actual engine a few mins ago and I would love to verify what I need to do here from someone with the knowledge since I don't have it yet. I took some pictures and attached 1st pic....is view of both trans and v-drive. 2nd pic....Must be the Mobiltrans SCH 50, Just behind and too the right of where shaft spins....there is a small square fill cap (just behind the wire cover that is black with blue stripe on it). This must be the power plus transmission that does not require changing unless contaminated and with that small hole, it would be very difficult to not make a huge mess anyways, I do see where they say to remove both caps to help vent it if you do replace the fluid since its so thick. This is where the tag is that says 1:48. Does this take roughly 1.5 quarts if I do end up changing it down the road? I had not even check this fluid before, so I am gonna do that. Boat has never had a bunch of water in bilge that I am aware of, but this is my 2nd year with boat so anything could have happened beforehand. I am gonna open it up and check it to be sure its not milky or anything. 3rd pic...Then where the yellow dipstick is, the manual says for, PCM 80 Series 1:1 trans....(there is that green tag that says 1:1), to use the Dexron III. (Manual says to change once a year). It looks great, but dont know if its ever been done so I am gonna change it for sure. Says 2 quarts. BTW, Thank you for the response cause this made me realize that I was wrong and I went back to look. Appreciate that! While I am asking....anyone know where to get the right thermostat for this boat? Its the FWC-160 degrees. I was gonna order thermostat (just too stay ahead of the game) and a new horn cause mine sounded like crap (found a match for hidden horn on Amazon for $21)....but I ended up removing my horn last night, re-built/re-sealed/cleaned it and now it sounds great. Besides compressed air.....what do you guys clean the flame arrestor with? I want this boat to be flawless for the summer and going over it with fine tooth comb.
  4. Got out this weekend on a buddies new Supra SE. He had it set up pretty good, water still in low 60's cause water is deep where we were at. Nice wave setup. Got my boat ready to go, just need to re-install all my bags and gear, was gonna take it out this past weekend but realized that vinyl guys had installed the panels and left my vent lines behind them, so had to take it all apart to run the vent lines out so didnt have time to do that, just jumped on with these guys. It was a full boat. I did get a chance to lake test my boat tho for an hour cruise and took my daughter...like a dumba**, I had my Ramfill gates open when I dropped boat tho and didnt realize what I had done till I pulled the boat back out on trailer and put them in trailer mode....and boat dumped a crapload of water, lol.
  5. Dealer can do the flash, they get the most recent update from Fineline. Its downloaded to a USB key and plugged in under helm, you access the dealer options to perform the update tho if screen wont come on, it may not be possible to do. (I had mine flashed last summer). I would make sure batteries fully charged/tested, unhook battery cables for 10mins to fully reset the system (I unhook 1 post at a time, zip tie together and label so I cant screw up how they go back together) and then hook back up and see what happens. If it still doesn't work then guess dealer would have a way to test screen to know if its bad or not. You should call Murphy and see what they say once you reset and test batteries cause I am sure that is the first thing they will ask you. They may be able to give you a way to test it to verify....Good luck man, that sucks for sure.
  6. Have you flashed the system with an update to be sure that is not the issue....and know for sure you batteries are in great condtion? I know you said it starts, but heard a lot of screen issues can be caused by low batteries. Just something to check before you go that route
  7. So last question about maintenance this Spring. I was planning to change the v-drive oil since I figure being a 2014 is right time. I have the PCM "power plus" v-drive 1:48 trans. Recommended is the Mobiltrans SHC 50 synthetic transmission lubricant (R190250). In owners manual, it says that the "power plus" trans are designed to be "maintainance free" and to check after 25hrs and annually after that and only replace if evidence of contamination is present (which there is none). Is there a reason they don't recommend to change fluid or is that just a selling point so you don't have to worry about it?
  8. Looking really good! Glad to know when I get GSA I will need those pieces and be ready to do the same work you are. Nice looking job
  9. Got a chance to take the boat out for a cruise today to double check all was good before taking it surfing sometime during this next week and managed to also pull my first dumba** move for the year. After launch, idled for a bit checking everything, making sure temp did not climb and no leaks... and then started throttling up, noticed she seemed a bit back heavy....didnt want to plane as quick/well and after 10mins or so or warming up, I took her up to WOT for about 30 seconds and maxed at 37 (only taken the boat WOT 1 other time and it was slightly over 40). Didn't really click in my head, but was thinking that I did not remember the boat riding back heavy before. Anyway, got her back to dock and loaded it up, pulled out of water and did my normal procedures to trailer home, one of them being to open the Ramfill gates, not only to dry out but cause I find they rarely stick if I leave them in opened position when not using the boat. Dang boat DUMPED water for a full 20 seconds, must have had both sides of Ramfill tanks 3/4 full, washed my sandal's into the lake, lol I realized that I did not key up the boat before backing it into water (which closes the gates automatically), I normally turn on the blower before backing in....so gates were open the entire time I was doing startup pre-checks and I took my time since it was first run of the year. DUH. Bet I wont forget that again this season
  10. Thanks, I will check them out. Its a 2014
  11. What....I thot they lasted a lot longer than that, read a lot of reviews where people said they lasted quite well? I got 60k out of the factory tires and heard these tires can get 60k if you rotate and keep the right psi in them (I am running 48psi). Guess it depends a lot on driving conditions tho. Dang, hope these don't wear that fast for me, I do a lot of highway miles.
  12. So....same truck, same boat.....both General Contractors. Brother from another mother! Just put the BF Goodrich KO2 tires on the truck, so figured I better have a way to protect boat since they will kick up rocks a lot quicker than the factory tires that were on there. 10ply too, so will tow and last longer.
  13. I just greased my rudder....not fun to climb in there. Took about 5 shots of grease and I could hear it filling, so it needed it. I noticed there was a phillips screw at top of the rudder, but it did not appear to be a vent and I did not see anything else (some have a vent you remove to fill grease), I assume the newer style boats do not? Besides that, I was unable to find any other zerk fittings in the engine area of boat, am I right to think that is the only one that needs maintenance? Also read something about how the Boatmate axles do not require grease as they are sealed units, so nothing on trailer I need to do either besides check brake fluid and pads? (already done) Oh yea...noticed something in manual about putting a little oil on each end of the throttle cable and shifter cable, this something you guys do regularly? Know I have posted multiple threads in last month with misc questions, just determined to get every possible item serviced/spruced up on boat/trailer this Spring so its taken care of and I been making a "master list" so every Spring I can refer back, know exactly what I gotta do and not miss anything so I can put aside a 2 weekends and bang it all out. Besides fact that I may keep this boat a couple years and want it perfect, I am generally pretty OCD about all my stuff and even if I was not keeping boat I would be doing this all. Anyway, thanks for any info you know know about this or any other misc things I may not have thot of yet. Only 2 maintenance things I have not done yet (that I know of) but plan to sometime soon is change v-drive fluid (Dextron III) and flush the coolant system (DEX-COOL) completely. To change v-drive fluidI guess I will need to buy an extractor. I bought hand pump last year for the oil and it works well, but might as well get extractor so I can do both quickly.
  14. Is this one you are looking for? Stumbled across it when looking for how many zerk fittings there are to grease on newer enzo.
  15. It is the surf sized. Super easy tho....$2 piece of clear plastic from Lowes or hardware store, trace the outline and tell them what thickest part of your swim platform is
