Hey guys.
I am new here, but have been reading for a while. Very informative.
I had a 93 and a 94 24 exp and loved them, Just recently (2 weeks ago) traded both for a 2005 one. Lots of upgrades and improvements and I am still trying to learn and get used to her. I will appreciate any hints and help and I will post my updates willing to help anyone with older models.
Thanks again.
Have fun and be safe.
Capt., AL.

Congrats...

I have a 1999 (certainly not new) and can answer questions you might have about the new set up. Mine is a JS version.

Hint one - keep the JS fittings at the u-joints lubricated...do it monthly.

Thanks for the hint.
So far during the first 20 hours I encounter 2 problems.
1) One of the nuts on the left side of the bracket holding the jack shaft and bearings, right before going to the out drive came loose and put the shaft out of alignment.
2) The steering gets stiff during the take off, even after bleeding.
I don't know about the 1999 ones, but the new one have the power steering pump right under the helm. Maybe it is me being used to the older one as how easy you could turn the wheel.
I guess, I just have to get used to it.
Thanks again.
AL.
