Hello guys I’m new to this I have a question I have a 1996 playmate 120 hp where can I find parts for this or is there a website
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.
