    question for the PRO's... about PV's

    What would cause the plastic coupler between PV 2 and 1 to snap in half? this happened 2 times now, back to back...

    I can turn PV 1 by hand and it feels very smooth. took off the cover of PV 1 and all looked good...

    More info needed.

    Year? make? model ?

    GP 800 ? or what?

    You mentioned PV 1 was free & easy to move- what about # 2 ?
    Is it siezed up ?

    My expirience on the 1200's is that they can get gunked up with 2stroke oil ?
    Also- are both cable attached to the PV motor ?
    And- when you start the boat for asecond- then turn it off- do you hear the PV motor run its test cycle ? IF so can you see the cables moving and verify they are both attached properly.

    they cycle fine. since only 2-3 are hooked up, they move like they are suppose to. I put a new plastic coupler between 2 and 1 and rode for about an hour, then lost 300 RPMs I knew what it was imediatly, went to shore, and sure enough, it had broke again

    Gas valves will fix that problem.

    only thing that comes to mind is alignment if 2-3 cycle fine how does it feel when all three are hooked up? does it have issues returning or opening?
