Hey, I looked at the pic of the prop, looks awesome! Im hoping to get out on the water this weekend to do some prop testing. Im currently running a label 28 pitch but its not enough. Im pretty much down to either a straight 28 pitch or a 30 pitch. I will let you know ASAP though with what I find. If its the 30 pitch I need consider yours sold!
Also..... just was doing some reading on the forum and see you have a procharger installed.... This is why Im going threw the prop testing now as I installed one on my boat in the spring.... Very interested to pick your brain on your prop selection and what you found with your boat.... If your interested my email is bobbygillis@hotmail.com

How did you make out with your prop testing?
with your name of 2002xjr, does that mean you have one, if so, have you ever had your rear differential seals replaced, I have a 2003xjr R1 and the seals leak?? thanks, mark
I do but never had a rear diff leak.
Clean the differential breather and refill with lubricant.

Many leaks have been caused by a clogged breather causing high internal pressures which push lubricant past the seals. Cleaning the breather eliminates the cause and the leak goes away.
Hi Glenn

Dave Arthur here from Nova Scotia. I believe you are the same Glenn Kornett that I roomed with at Mohawk College back in the early '70s. If so I would love to get in touch and swap stories about the last 45 years :)

Wow, I certainly remember you Dave. I have lived in the USA since 1988. Have you degreased any Cortina engines in a bathtub lately? We are both old men now, time has flown.
Looks like you got a convincor, what model do you have now?

Hey there. Yes we moved up to a 242 sport a few years ago. The ole Persuader was a super fun ride but little too small for the big weekends on our lakes here. You still have the same Convincor?
Yep, I still have the same 259. Motor is currently out getting refreshed for the second time since I have owned it. Last summer I sure missed that old stock 350 mag LOL but you are describing why I sold it, I did not miss it on a busy Saturday that's for sure. It is a fun hull with 1' of shop or less though. and i always wondered how it would run with about a hundred more hp like a 383 or 400 small block.
