    What Trans do I have?

    How do I tell what trans I have in my boat? It's a 1983 Chris Craft Catalina 251. The original 305 engine was changed to a Mercruiser 350 some time before I bought it.

    Would there be a way to adjust the transducer to read correctly all the time or is this just the nature of the animal?

    Re: Outdrive problem
