Re: Engine stalls after getting to temp

Ok as I understand it is always the Port Engine?

Next time switch STB Coil with Port (do this from a cold start up) see if the Port continues to run and the STB drops.

Running Pertronix Dist. for 7 seasons no issues and NO resistor.

Re: Boat in the wet, but shafts won't drip

I had a simular problem years ago with GFO packing. I finally went to 2 rings and have had no problems for 10 years maintaining a drip rate.
The GFO can run with very little drip and still run cool.

Re: Solar panels & house bank

I built a Solar setup for a video camera . I used a Renogy 100 watt panel and a Mourning Star Controller. Now the reality is... At peak sun which is 4-6 hrs per day... max. output of a 12 volt panel is only 5 amps! This works great for low draw devices such as LED lights and in my case a 1 amp draw ...

Re: Help! Scentry 410 Vapor Sensor

Do not depend on the test button on the monitor... it only tests the head not the sensor! Check every season. Place sensor low in the bilge but high enough where it will not get wet. They do not do well when submerged. Test the sensor with a butane lighter (Not Lit) Flick your lighter outside in the...

Re: Hard Starting

It is common with quads that after sitting a week... the fuel will drain off. Actually this is a good thing. Fuel sitting in the carbs for long periods can cause problems. Anyway you do not need to crank for 30 sec. (that is a long time and very hard on starters) . Crank for only a few seconds... st...

Re: Zincs- More is better?

There is still confusion regarding galvanic protection. I have used a mag. hang over anode for 15 years now to bring my numbers up. I have the correct anodes on my 29 provided by BoatZincs.com. While the numbers increase they still fell short of the recommended -.95- -105 . mv By using the mag anode...
