  1. Mate that is reasonable amount for a high end reel.i had a Shimano charter special that was about 3 yrs old serviced cost around $20 less than the reel.next time around got bearings from Shimano to do myself still cost small fortune last time it started to play up was going to throw away gave it away instead bloody ridiculous
  2. Yeah put stainless steel ones in surprised there not standard
  3. Hi I had to get a new trailer a few years ago and wasn't sure about weight so got a braked one.now I wish I had of done weighbridge to see if I needed brakes as cost of reform has doubled + need inspection every year .I put a post up recently about pads falling apart even though trailer only about 3 years old worth checking anyway
  4. Hi I have mc40 so not sure if connection the same to remove top part of selector shaft from bottom part mine just has a pin you knock out have you tried moving selector on motor(not control box) and See what happens may be something obvious
  5. Hi all I always take chicken for bait normally covered in garlic or parmesan cheese also a good bait for bream and snapper.as for the price it's cheaper than Phillies and about a third of good prawns even cheaper when you take 1 breast from the dinner menu
  6. May be as simple as a head gasket if you decide to take head off spray bolts with a penetrating oil for a few days before you try anything it's not that hard to do if you can use basic tools another motor is expensive
  7. Hey mate make sure choke working could be stuck on may be worth getting clean petrol if you don't no how old it is new plugs wouldn't hurt either as well as cleaning replacing filter
  8. So decided time to do annual wheel bearing change trailer is 3 years old so wasn't expecting any hassle.turns out it was fitted with standard pads not marine I don't no if this is a regular thing but not ideal.1 pad had completely lost the actual pad part they all looked like they he'd been under water for ages trailer all ways washed down have swapped for marine ones hopefully better I'll try to take a picture cheers
  9. Congratulations always good when a plan comes together I hope to go better on Jews and kingies Kkmyself this summer .only problem I love a feed of flathead so I can get impatient keep up the great fishing
  10. Mate I would be surprised if you can't fix that if only parts needed. I had to replace my trailer about 3 years ago I went with sales trailers I won't say they are the best but good value as my boat is not worth a lot.no problems with rust at all but I do give it a good hosedown each use no problem with lights but they did use cheap bearings
  11. So I know blue spots live in deeper water but I always get a bit of a surprise when they chase a hooked fish to the surface. Makes me wonder about inshore flatties where we usually fish lures on the bottom would a midsurface work in a few metres
  12. Hi all went out 5,30 start for blue spots a bit of moving around till I found some legal fish kept about 7 for family and let heaps go as I prefer to keep mid size around 40 to 50 cm good news is surface action was around warmer water not far off cheers
  13. Mouth of hawkesbury I've seen up to 10 during the week they are prawning everyone has to make a living
  14. I know you should make sure impeller is installed on proper direction but wouldn't rotation place blades correctly if you bugger it up
  15. Are you getting steam from relief vents had that with my motor was a blown head gasket. I'm trying to see about a fix for small hole in block where gasket blew but saying that motor running fine just the steam at idle a concern
