07' Lund Pro-V IFS Driver Pedestal Replacement

7 posts in this topic

Isn't that the one that is permanently screwed to the floor? IF so you don't have too many options... another springfield pedestal probably.

Yes it is - I am not sure if you can just purchase the pedestal or if you have to buy the complete base and pedestal? I have not pulled the bad pedestal out yet because the boat it is up at the lake so was wondering if these are the type that go through the base and floor? Does anyone know I would like to purchase a replacement down here in the cities and bring it up this weekend?

Thanks

If you want the best, it is a Springfield Heavy Duty Mainstay Shortie, but they are hard to find, and about $250. Possibly a dealer who specializes in higher end walleye boats can order it for you, I know there is aplace in MI that carries them, but can't recall the name.

It is shorter than most so you are not sticking up so far, and has air ride, and is HD. Lots of walleye pros have used them and recommned them. I have yet to get one, but I sure would like to. Combine that with an Attwood SAS seat and you are in cush heaven. I am getting the SAS seat yet this summer, and possibly the pedistal if the seat itself doesn't do the trick.

edit: BTW I see you need it fast. You might be able to just get the plastic collar, as that went to heck on ours (springfiled basic drivers ped.) this spring, and I just took the collar of another one we had laying around, and it is now good as new... but I want some "air ride" wink

good luck,

Doesn't Lund cover this under warranty? If I'm not mistake Lund uses Swivl-Ez pedestals now.

    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
