  1. Re: 454 crusader port side exhaust manifold running hotter then starboard manifold

    how old is the engine?

    where do you boat (saltwater, lake, etc)?

    how old are the risers/elbows?
  2. Re: No power topside, only below deck in 1985 Celebrity 225V

    The ignition switch harness gets its battery connection from the battery connection at the starter. in that time frame, OMC had one or two fuses in the smaller wires connected to that terminal...I'd...
  3. Re: Does a Breakerless ignition ever require a ballast resistor?

    as a rule, the need for a resistor is determined by the coil.....if it says to use one, it will last a lot longer with the resistor in line.

    As far as measuring the coil, you need an accurate ohm...

    Re: Alpha 1 leak issues?

    2X on the quad ring missing being a likely source and getting the correct manual.

    I would also be prudent to get a water pump kit if you know it hasn't been changed lately....
  7. Re: 1977 Chris Craft Twin Inboards turning over hard and running labored.

    The lab that does the analysis will scan the oil and tell you what they found and the likely source(s)....Blackstone is one of the leaders and you can check their www site for more info. they can...
  8. Re: 1977 Chris Craft Twin Inboards turning over hard and running labored.

    may be the gasoline washed one or more bearings....an oil analysis on what was in the sump may have been revealing but that opportunity is gone.

    I'd suggest comparing the effort needed to turn...

    Re: fuel pump not pumping

    Pin 30 is the fused feed from the battery (PNK/BLK)
    Pin 86 powers the coil, and should get battery voltage with the ignition switch in RUN (PNK)
    Pin 85 goes to ECU which grounds it, internally, to...

    Re: fuel pump not pumping

    if you measured < one ohm on the pump side of the relay, the description is a bit misleading....its the 'battery feed' that the relay provides to the pumps....

    Re: fuel pump not pumping

    sounds like the harness.

    I think it would be prudent to test both pumps with the jumper...I suspect they are functional but its always prudent to verify something vs assuming....

    Re: fuel pump not pumping

    if your meter is accurate, the fuse should not be popping....

    it would also be good to see if each fuel pump runs....you can use a fused jumper on the positive wire's connector.

    Re: fuel pump not pumping

    the first will tell you what the resistance of the pumps (in parallel) is...the second will tell you what condition the harness is in, from the relay to the pumps.

    sounds like an old TRS drive, with the gear behind the engine....

    I would think the new coupler would bolt up - depends upon the hole pattern drilled in the current flywheel...worse case is drill...

    looks like the the wire supplies +12VDC to the circuit breaker, the starter relay, and connects the alternator output back to the battery.

    that suggests the issue is downstream of the relay...so remove the relay and measure the resistance between the gray wire...
