Tom,

I don't think there's pressure there, it's before pump.

You should be able to just twist it open. You will loose some gas, so get rags to catch the spill. Also be sure to get o-ring out and reposition it correctly when installing.

Valv - whats is your recommendation for cleaning the filter?

Thanks,

Usually they are stainless steel, regular carb cleaner should work fine. If it's plastic I would just blow some air to clean deposits and reinstall

I havent done anything with mine yet so I dont know this for sure, but I think you just replace it, I think the filter assy is sealed. Although I never tried to turn it off.

I thought that too and when I went to the marina to buy a new one the guy in service said just twist it off and clean it. I haven't tried it yet but today looks like a good day to do it.

a'ight - I was able to take a look tonight and it was very easy. First, disconnect the filter assembly from the bracket it is attached to - careful not to drop the nut. I did this so I could get a grip on the filter cup. Then I used a little muscle to unscrew the cup. If you are steady when unscrewing the cup you won't spill a drop of gas. I dumped the gas and found a couple small particles of junk in the bottom of the cup and blew it out. Then I went back and looked at the actual filter - it just pulls out(the filter looks to be paper). I checked it out and it looked clean but I blew it off anyway - be careful here - I had my compressor turned up full and gas went all over when I hit the filter with air. I turned down my compressor and hit the filter a few more times. Then I put it all back together and pumped the bulb a few times to fill the filter cup. Hope this helps.

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
