Thread: Cavitation override question

  1. #1
    ok heres the deal i have a 69 Aqua-Craft v-drive with both up and down pedal set up in it .. the rod from the lock out handle going back is 7/16th size rod .. 1/2 way back there is a coupler where it Changes to 3/8th rod to the rear of the boat ... This boat does Not have a Spring kit installed and at upper speeds the plate has no spring tentions and wants to lift the Bow so you have to ride the pedal the whole time .. i checked a few kits but they are all for 7/16 or larger rods .. does anyone make one for a 3/8th rod or am i gonna have to replace the 3/8th rod and make it 7/16th then add a spring kit to it??? im on a budget due to torn rotator in shoulder and not working now and would like to make it work with the 3/8th rod but i cant find a kit that works with 3/8th tho .. any help would be Awesome cause i wanna get this to ride right and i cant with out a Spring kit installed.
    thanks , Bill

    Try placing a coupler on your rod w/ an eyehook then install a garage door spring. Hook the other end to a eyehook attached to the stringer. That the we did it for years.
