tassaly81 posted a topic in Maintenance, Tech Info & TroubleshootingHELP!! We have a slow leak into our bidge (1999 Malibu Response Lx) and cannot, for the life of us, figure out where it is comming from. Water is entering (from somewhere) into the cavity between the bilge and the hull (see images below) I have inspected the hull (after pulling up and off the trailer with our sling hoist) and noticed the water temp sensor cable (as it enters the hull) may have been the issue. I sealed it up but apparently it did not fix the issue. It seems to have slowed it, but still has water coming in. Nothing seems to be comming in through the prop shaft ente
So I picked up a 2009 response Lx last week with 300 hours on it. It had no stereo or speakers from the factory. I have installed speakers in our last couple boats so I was not worried. I found the holes behind the leather in the rear but not the front. Then I realized the speakers are supposed to be dash mounted. I am really conflicted here on what to do. Should i cut in the dash mount speakers? I understand that also requires taking the windshield out. Any ideas or input would be greatly appreciated.
I've had the Response LX for about 5 years. It came with a 4 bladed stainless prop on it, and has the 330HP Mercruiser black scorpion direct drive. The Mercruiser has a rev limiter at 5180 RPM, or thereabouts (it stutters around 5180, maybe it's 5200). We're running pretty hard into the rev limiter, I think we can hit it on about 3/4 throttle. We get 72kph (45mph) at the rev limiter with 1 person aboard, about half fuel, not much spare weight in the boat. It feels like we're giving up quite a bit of top speed there. I've looked at the prop and it doesn't have any clear identifyin
I have a '97 Response LX with the Monsoon engine. Late in the day on Sunday, I had the throttle cable break. The cable core (wire) broke where it is crimped on to the solid leader on the throttle end of the cable. Is this a common failure? Is there any kind of repair that can be done, or do I need to replace the entire cable assembly? Can anyone help with a part number for the cable assembly? I will also need to replace the cable end that attaches to the throttle linkage (the part that threads on the cable and is cotter pinned to the throttle.) Anyone have a part number
