I did Excalibur repairs for friends a year or so, many coils needed replaces so New coils would be purchased and installed, some were stock coils. ON storing the machine away, wash it down with fresh water, let dry.....then coat or spray the cables and O-rings with McNett Silicon spray (And not the one mixed with water like the Trident pump spray). I have coated the cables with Dow corning 101 silicon grease but I'm sure plummers grease would work fine. Recheck once ever few months to make sure they are well coated.

Last fall I tried this..................I aquasealed the knobs I don't use, top discrim knob, then the volume, then the PP.......basically using silicon grease on the knob shaft orings then sealing them with Aquaseal. NO turning / untouched........Just a few months ago I pulled the knobs off to check all since it had been 10 months, Amazing the Aquaseal was still in place, so I pulled the Aquaseal off each.. looked like I had just put silicon grease on them.. SO I redid the Aquaseal and will recheck next spring. And remember I hunt several days a week, 20 plus hours in saltwater. but this time I am adjust them to see how they fair.



Effort is Important, But knowing where to make an effort can make all the difference!
