Garmin vs Lorance

I am going with a garmin 7 unit on the console with a cheap lowrance hook 2 unit up front on the trolling motor this year. In the past I've used birds and eagles. Just felt it was time for an upgrade since I'm hanging onto the boat for a while. I like the simplicity of the garmin units, personally. ...

Quantum Smoke SL100HPT Beware!

I've only owned on Quantum in my life. I bought it as an emergency replacement the day before a tourney when one of my primary reels was damaged. Never did perform for me. It didn't show all that corrosion, but it needed torn down and lubed about once a month or the bearings would start singing. It ...

Johnson 25hp question

Installed the new regulator, tach is still inop. So, looking like a bad gauge after all. I'm going to try the wrap a wire around the spark plug wire type tach just to see if I can get a read on the RPMs. Take a look at the prop and see if you think it can be refurbed or just becomes the emergency sp...

Johnson 25hp question

Finally got out last night for a while after the downpours last weekend. Motor in second hole, less one battery (now two), a little over a half tank of gas and I can get 20-21 mph on the clock. Regulator is on the way to see if that will make the tach operate normally. Re-stuffed the pedestal seats ...

Johnson 25hp question

Don't know how far you venture from shore/ramp, but I only run one battery. I don't see a need for more than one in 99% of the rigs we sell/service/rig/use around here. I think most of us are within 5 miles of shore and on inland lakes and rivers. I could see having 2 if you trolled a LOT but in my...

Johnson 25hp question

Small update, while I was chasing an electrical issue with the anchor winch I found something important. The electronic winch had a broken negative wire at the terminal where it was attached to a 27 series battery. It was the ONLY thing attached to the third battery. The third battery is now out of ...

Johnson 25hp question

No, the tach may not be the issue........ The warning lights and the tach are powered up by a keyed b+ signal and ground. That is working. The warning lights are on a chip and designed to test each individual circuit once powered up. That function is also working. The tach signal is driven off one ...

Johnson 25hp question

Okay......... Having someone sit in the front and noting that there wasn't much difference is a comment I would expect. You are asking for help. Proper suggestions were given as to moving weight forward. What you did was add weight forward but left all the stern weight.......in the stern. Move weig...
