    Yea, that Texas heat is a b**** The previous owner was on either their 3rd or 4th factory cover. I only know that because the tent/ poles/ cover bag for the other 2 or 3 were with the boat when I bought it. Vinyl was noticeably more dry/ hard than my other X14's. (granted the boat was older, too). It will be worth doing a full set of skins and replicating the 40th graphics.

    No worries! I have no reason to check tranny cooler, temp has been great since having the replumb kit added. Just thought the PSA was a good idea next time I’m sitting on the dock and wondering what else I can do with the boat!

    Agreed on the TX part, no matter how much Babe’s seat soap, and 303 I use those back seats can’t be fixed, and have only cracked more. It’s a shame because going to be next to impossible to match the vinyl, so a full reupholster will be in the future cards most likely. At that time, hopefully MC will share the 40th badge embroidery file...

    Thank you, I feel less stupid now. The hose from the seacock goes directly to the impeller on my boat, not back towards the transmission. Not sure which of those other options I have, JohnE will hopefully chime in on that, ha. I do know the transmission is a powerslot, so not sure that makes a difference. I guess the last question I should ask, trans cooler, is referring to something on the transmission or at least near it correct?

    Thank you both, that’s why I love this group/thread. Something for me to check and add to my periodic maintenance check. On a different note, my bilge pump did not have that screen.

    Example of why I was confused. My 5.7 Indmar was the similar to this one

    My mistake sir. Apparently the MCX is different than my old 205 and my new LY6 and routes as you say. In this picture it’s the steel cylinder with the two hoses after the impeller. Pull the hose from the bottom.

    Yeah, not sure how the LY6 works in DoubleD's ride. On the MCX, the trans cooler is mounted on the front port side corner of the motor. It is the first thing after the raw water pump. It is a cylinder shaped piece that will have water hose in/out on each end with 2 transmission hoses connected to it. There is a screen on the water input end, I've never checked mine, but it is probably a good idea.

    Also be friends with your tech. Take the crew breakfast biscuits when you get the 1 hour turn around on a mid season oil change. They will show you everything you need to do out on the water. As bad as some of the stories on here are, these guys care about their trade, they are bad *** mechanics, and sometimes just need a simple thank you. Sorry for the rant.

    I'll definitely be here looking for suggestions when I'm making the template. I plan to make it compatible for boats with/without ballast, so all hatches should work. Also plan to leave the engine hatch sides carpet if that is what you meant.
