Leaky Rivet Locator

Something I discovered was a dent puller for automotive hail dents works on flat surface, it has a suction cup and when placed over a rivet it will not seal if it has a leak. I got mine from harbor freight for 5 bucks it's about 3 inches round and works great. I do like the ideas of Jonny and yours ...

1981 Bass Tracker II

The controls should have a pin and a wire hairpin holding them on, if they set low and you can't reach them you can take off the side cover by removing a few screws, take as many photos of what your taking apart and it will help you with put it back together. I'm working on the same thing but my out...

Sea Nymph Bass Attacker Rebuild

The part your looking for on the controls is going to be a dealer part or online from a Johnson supplier.

I find it hard to trust online stores if I can't touch and hold what I'm buying to see if it's what I need.

Fish Finder on a Tracker 1036? Other questions

You could use a radiator hose clamp and attach to the bottom of your trolling motor for the transducer and the electric should be alligator clamps, just remember not to drop the motor on the ground
