    Replacement gas tank for 1078 Robalo R190 CC.

    I can give you the measurements this weekend as I replaced my tank in my 1976 R190 ( My 1969 is in a complete Restoration) I went with a roto cast one with 50 gal and can give you those too if you want. You can see it in the ROBALOBOATING.NET Forum that we started for helping older and newer ROBALO owners . Look under restoration for the Dottie Q restoration. I can also answer any questions if needed.

    Robalo Boats built before 2001

    First off Welcome to the ROBALO family that has been bringing innovations to the fishing boat market for nearly 50 Years . There were no actual model specific owners manuals back then . I do my best in helping owners of the older boats as well with other forum members on RobaloBoating and there are other members with your same models . As with all older boats the past owners have customized there boats to best suite there type of use. With that said it helps to have Pictures to go along with some of your question (it tremendously helps ). So with that said, hope to see you there.

    1820 repower

    The main concern on the 4 stroke is the weight. You want to make sure the motor you go with is not heaver than the 150. On the other side of the coin is ROBALO's are a LOT heaver than most boats in the same class which means if you went down to a 90hp you would need to be cruising at 4500-4800 RPM's where the 150HP would be 3400-3600. Also with a boat that old you need to know what size motor you have a 20" or 25" inch . You can go to ROBALOBOATING.COM and you will find a forum of ROBALO owners with all the different sizes and years Like my new ROBALO is only 42 years young . LOL So hopefully we will see you there.

    Livewell intake clogged

    Is the boat on a trailer ? if so I would try to take a dermal tool into the fins and see if you can cut them out. You should be be able to also take a screwdriver and chisel out the rest of them. Once done you could then use a 1 gal paint stirrer wrapped with course sandpaper and get the remaining out,clean with solvent and use bottom paint mad for the brass unit. Thats my 2 cents worth.

    1978 R190 Below Deck Gas Tank

    Hellp Mt , If the tank was a original tank I could tell you it is 60 gallon. Go over to ROBALOBOATING.COM And you can post there and I or some of our other members can help you out. If possible try to take any pic you can as that will help me see if I can get you going without removing the coffin lid. At least your tank is in it's own area and not in the belly. What caught my eye is the way they explained it as the fill,vent as well as the fuel hose are different sizes as well as originally all located in the area under a inspection plate. Also the problem could be as simple as removing the pickup elbow going into the tank. Once out unscrew the hose barb from the elbow and if you cam't see through it it has a anti-syphen valve in it and it is clogged as well as a screen that you can use a small pic and put it into the pick-up hole and push to the side and pull out. If there is a screen there it will come out. You can now instal the elbow and hose barb back in without the parts you pulled out and it will be ok if you have a spin on water separator. And as always I want to thank staff here at ROBALO who are nice enough to let us post and help out the older boat ROBALOHAULICS. See you there.

    buying a 1970s robalo center console

    Jeff, I try to be around when any of the owners of the vintage ROBALO's need any help as well as I have learned about the newer ROBALO's also. The one thing we all have in common regardless of the year is the commemorator we share. Up until I started to do the makeover (due to a fiberglass fuel tank and ethanol problems)you would be amazed at the number of people that would come up to me and ask about my boat. They had seen it at the Miami show in 1989 or the Florida sportsman anniversary issue the same year. But no matter who asks me about ROBALO I can always tell them once you own one you will always remember the great memories she brought you and well like some other brands out there you will have more time staying on the water and not in the shop, So take the splash and you too will start making memories.

    buying a 1970s robalo center console

    Jeff . There were never any complete teak floors in the ROBALO'S no matter how old. We did have teak fishbox ,battery boxes ,gunnel boards along with teak trim in various places on the different models.When you go over to ROBALOBOATING.com there are members pictures of the different years .If you have any questions just ask as I am always cruising the cyber docks, We even have different types of care on teak refurbishing and care.See you there.
