    I havenít forgotten about this thread. So far I havenít had any time to mess with them. Been busy with work. It was my week to hold call and just came off this afternoon. Also been raining when I did have time to work on them. I did reposition the winch strap post. I didnít even notice the damage the previous owner had inflicted by negligence or stupidity.

    I did purchase a battery and a new battery charger, but I returned the battery tonight as I didnít really want to shim it so it would be higher for the battery bracket to make contact. Wal-Mart agm pwc battery. Think Iím going to just order the deka you mentioned earlier from amazon. The battery I took out is only a year old so hopefully the new battery charger will bring it back to life.

    you need the battery space which actually should have been in the walmart battery box. harrrmp.

    all deka ETX 16's come with the height adapter. You can buy them at big chain auto parts stores under their own brands ( autozone for example) . Looks for the distinctive thread attachment points unique to east penn/ deka batteries

    they OEM for over a dozen different resellers.

    just let us kow what happens next. DI info is really scarce these days, so we like to keep refilling the kettle

    Replace the original Triton blue rollers with much nicer Stoltz orange

    I moved them to this position last week, but like how you have yours under the bumper and the addition of the safety strap. Thanks for sharing those links!

    When positioning the bow roller and strap, think about what would happen if the tow vehicle as to brake very hard, or in the worst case, decelerate as a result of a collision.

    You want the ski to stay on the trailer even during an extreme event. It is not good to have the watercraft lurch forward and ride up over the bow roller. This is why the winch strap goes under the bow roller, so it holds the bow down against the roller. Same for the safety strap.

    http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthre...=1#post2190810




    By the same token, the straps at the rear also need to be a lot stronger than you might imagine and well angled to hold the hull down to the trailer. You donít want the hull to be able to bounce up and away from the bunks, even if the trailer encounters a huge pothole or bounce.

    Imagine holding the trailer upside down and shaking it - would the ski stay in place? If yes, that is about right.

    I use BoatBuckle G2 transom straps for the two read hold downs and for the front safety strap. I use the stainless steel G2 since I sometimes launch into salt water.

    Update for today. I purchased a Duracell agm etx16l battery yesterday from sams club and charged it last night. Then this morning I repositioned the winch post straps to the highest position possible. I put the battery in the running ski just to test it out. Fired right up. So I took it to the non running ski and installed it there. Got two beeps but no fuel pump priming.

    I opened the front storage up and removed that plastic covering that the fire extinguisher is mounted to to gain access to the fuel tank. Removed that breathing tube and disconnected the wire harness to the fuel pump. Tested voltage with a test light and had the far right wire in the harness light up. Plugged it back in and put the key back in to my surprise the fuel pump primed. So I hit the starter and the second ski fired up. I took a video and Iíll upload it after I cut my grass.

    But now thereís a new problem with the second ski. Itís pumping water inside the hull. Iíll also upload this video later tonight.

    tuned out to be a pretty sweet deal....

    have fun!

    as far as the water leak, check the stator cooling water supply. there is a quick disconnect there that was know to fail with age.

    Here’s the video of the water leak in the hull. The water from the hose was turned off in this video, but you can still see where it was being pumped out from. Hopefully this wasn’t from me brain farting and hitting the stop button before I cut the water from the hose. I realized immediately and turned the hose off. This video was taken after that incident.
