Re: 1980 Mercury 2 stroke 40 linkage

Anybody have a tiller steer 40? I’m thinking this tab on the shaft assembly is for connecting the tiller shift cable. Anybody?

Re: Redecking a Bass Tracker

Well, it’s been a year. Lots of flooding around here this spring. Not too great for getting out on the Tracker. But there’s still hope. Hope your fishing days are plentiful.

1980 Bass Tracker II rebuild.

You need to formulate that color and package spray cans. Great job on the trailer.

Redecking a Bass Tracker

Thanks, yea they are soft. Real easy to strip. Local Fastenal store, and but box store. Didn’t have any. They had the stainless steel coated ones. Didn’t want those because they will rust over time. And I do like the way they pull down. And disappear in the carpet Iam using. Sent from my iPad using...

Redecking a Bass Tracker

Well, it’s done far as I can get it. Need to make the maiden voyage before I hand it over to them. Runs good out of the water, but needs to be ran a while to make sure it’ll restart hot. Hope this has been helpful to someone, and thanks for your help. Let’s go fishing!

Redecking a Bass Tracker

Second try on the windshield was better. It’s not perfect but it’ll work. Also took the wheel hubs apart on the trailer. New bearings, races, seals, washers, castle nuts, and hub savers. I polished the axle shafts and seal land, too. Surprised it made the 35 mile trip home.

Redecking a Bass Tracker

Well, tonight I tried bending the 1/4” plexiglass blank I had cut out for the windshield. I have a few hints if you’re interested. Cut a scrap piece and dink around with it. When you bend the real McCoy, clamp it down to a flat surface on foil, use a piece of wood to hold the bend line where you wan...

Redecking a Bass Tracker

Onthewater102: I can’t take credit for the bow storage compartment. It was already there. I did simulate it for a 24”w x 16” deep stow hole under the bow deck. When they are finished they will have a rectangular door on them. Good for cords, rope, lunch, rainwear. Silicone doesn't play nice with alu...

Redecking a Bass Tracker

Looked into building up the front deck and read the “decking when or when not to” thread. The rear seat is going to be up on a deck over the top of the two flotation wells, so I decided to keep the front deck stock height. If it seems stable, maybe next year we’ll raise the front deck, but I’d rathe...

Redecking a Bass Tracker

Got the foam board installed last night. Was able to do the bow flotation foam out of foam board with spray foam in the gaps. Finished the top of the stacks with some of the original styrofoam. It’s better than the random chunks that were in there before. Might build up the bow deck higher to meet t...

https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180418/003c4e31ce37d1fbb4a590c8e0682385.jpg I will be using this, to replace my foam. It’s use by a lot of the boat racing community. And it can be sculpted to your needs in areas where drainage is a must. Then Iam spraying truck bed line from cans. On top so wate...
