    Looks familiar. Ha! Could you show me a pic of how your separator is plumbed? PM me and I will give you a cell number if that is easier. I need to do some learn'n.

    My bad. The title says 2005 and yes the hull number matches.

    Fuel Line and Controls help

    We should get together and talk about our mechanical. Our boats are very similar. I have a fuel/water separator in my Stryker.

    My throttle is also the same where the reverse seems like it’s a bit tough? It was the last inch of reverse that gave throttle above idle speed but now it doesn’t. Guessing it’s the cable issue that needs lube.

    Problem with that one is you might not see the information, on my Stryker it was under the floor boards and stiff as all get out. Moisture will creep into the cable housing too, including over here we have freezing temps......Jetspray

    Use any marine fuel hose you can get that is rated for outboard/external applications. Anything sold these days has to be EPA compliant and will also be ethanol resistant. I’d use 5/16 hose, 3/8 is overkill and will be bigger than the barb on your kicker’s quick connect fitting.

Orient your fuel lines so that the primer bulbs hang vertically, with the arrows facing up, the check valves in the bulbs will function correctly this way.

    Spot on!!!! We have a winner. Thank you SacPerformance!

    I just got off the phone with a Modesto boat dealer and as soon as I told where I bought and the age of the boat he asked, "Do you have grey lines with red lettering?" I said, "yep". "The fuel ate your liner. You need grey line with blue lettering." He even said the plastic flakes usually just pile up at the quick disconnect which is exactly what happened.

    What fuel line do you think I should use Mr Sac Performance? I will put in a water/filter separator 3/8 inlet and outlets. Is the updated grey line OK or something else?

    Thank you much everyone!

    You can tape the new one to the old one and pull it through with the help of another. Just tape it up good so the end doesn't catch on any other cables while pulling and pushing.

    Be better to replace the throttle cables. The old ones will have a number on the cover to tell you how long they are. I would just order a new set.

    Hope to see you on the water soon.
