^ ya same question since I got my spark June 1st. I heard the depth finder was $300 not sure how much extra to install
Depth Finder is a waste of $$$ Unless your a fisherman? At 15 MPH you would go aground in about 1 second if you go in shallow water? The depth finder will just reaffirm that you bit the dust?^ ya same question since I got my spark June 1st. I heard the depth finder was $300 not sure how much extra to install
Its a depth finder which gives you depth below your keel just as on more expensive Jet Skis or larger power or sail boats.How does the depth finder work. Can it kill the engine at a predetermined depth to prevent sucking up debris? Does it have an alarm to let you know your getting into shallow water?
That would be a bushing. Also, it isn't hydraulic, it is just an electric motor that pushes the arm forward or back. Good info for those who dismantle their iBR.I have disassembled my ibr to toss a new wear ring and impeller in twice(once to put in a new wear ring and fix my impeller, and once to put in my new solas impeller)... there is a thick washer that goes through the composite arm attached to the ibr gate with a washer on each side, if this is assembled without the "washer"(I don't know the technical term for it) it would definately put a lot more stress on the hydraulics than what it should normally have to put out.
All pressure should be on the metal washer going through the ibr arm and the ibr arm should be able to move free and easy even with over-tightening the bolt.
