    Trim installation

    I just got a trim kit today I had won off ebay. My ski didn't have ti already. I'm reading the instructions in the shop manual where the motor goes. Am I going to have to cut a hole in my hull?

    Yes you are. Measure twice, cut once. Good luck.

    1 big hole, and 3 smaller ones for the mounting screws.

    You may have a dimple molded in to reference where you need to drill. Pulling the pump and ride plate will make it easier.

    Thank you god

    It was drizzly, cold, and new englandish when I posted my question 5 minutes ago. But after I'm like "come on, am I that lazy". I went outside and looked. Miraculously, the hole was there with the mounting screws. So at one point this thing had the trim system in it. Looking closely...I think I have an extended ride plate too.

    I'd love to see the history behind this thing.

    You got any pictures of your ski? Maybe it was done up already once before. Hmmm?

    I have a few, nothing really speical though. On the first one, if you look hard enough you can barely see where the mountain hardware is for the trim motor. Also..is that an extended ride plate?

    The inside of the hull was so nasty...the old owner treated this thing like crap!

    Definately an extended plate, just not the stock one, or an OP.

    The only hardware that I can mke out looks like the exhaust outlet???

    Some Extreme Simple Green or 409 will clean that right up...may have to give it a second application though.

    It looks like the Twist ride plate I got on my 750. Twist engineering / MSD ignitions sold them. They also sold a total loss electrical system back in the day, and sponsons. You know two or three Polaris parts and tons of goodies for the other manufactures.

    Edit: bigdaddy I found some picture of the ride plate here on one of my old posts. It works great on smooth water, not the best for the ocean. http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/show...ighlight=board
