new member--- prop ?
hi, I just bought a maxum 2005 1800 sr3--4.3 liter--- a few days ago. I have not had it in the water and have not even heard it run, its still winterized. it has 70 hours on it. I have all the maintenance records back to 2010 and don't see any record of an impeller change. so I guess , based on time, it needs one. Im not sure if I will do it myself. also, the prop is alum. 23p probably the original. id like to get a s.s. can anyone recommend a brand and should I stay with 23p ? boat looks new, was kept inside a garage. I gave $8000 for it, which I think was an ok price if all is well under the hood. I am located in central ky. also, I would really like to know how important it is to use 25w40 oil. I have a good supply of royal purple 15w40 syn. but don't know whether to use it in the 4.3.----dale
