Assuming it’s a portable, it’s an oil change, spark plug and air filter. Maybe 20 min of work and YouTube research....am I missing something? If it’s not working, just buy a replacement carb....

re: Frying a turkey - Redlos
Safety tip, after getting oil to 375 deg (initial temp that should drop to 350 for cooking), kill the flame BEFORE dropping bird...if you get a boil over there is no ignition source). Lower bird in slowly and wear a glove, then after bird is dunked and cooking, relight the burner......

re: Prop Help - Redlos
56-57 seems pretty fast for a bay boat hull and real world loading with a 175hp....think low 50s is more realistic. [link=(https://www.yamaha-motor.com/assets/products/otb/bulletins/bulletin_4stroke_hpv6_rel_k2m-frontier210-f150txr.pdf)]LINK[/link]...

re: First gps/fishfinder purchase - Redlos
I ha e a Garmin EchoMap 74DV and the Garmin satellite map. It works Ok, but Id probably go with Lowrance if I could redo....their map has better contrast of water/marsh and I often have to take off my Costas to see during the day. Other than that, I’m pretty happy with the EchoMap. Agree that you...

re: Orange beach surf fishing - Redlos
Find and catch live mole crabs (aka sand fleas) in the surf and put 2 live ones on a double drop rig, put rod in sand spike and open beer. I'd also bring a big top water and some spoons to throw if you see stuff busting the surface. Normally it's blues, or lady fish but they can be fun to catch. ...

re: iPilot runtime question - Redlos

As others have said, check water levels and test or bring to Auto Parts store and have them do it with a load. If you can swap out (probably for...
