    Re: Question about DP-C1 drive

    Thank you for the quick reply! You are right, as always, the boat is powered by a V-8 (5.7L). The drive has about 1300 hrs. on it and I'm pretty sure that nothing outside of regular maintenance plus...

    Question about DP-C1 drive

    About 7 years ago I was able to replace my PDS bearing, U joints and shift shaft seal etc. with the info I obtained from this forum and my Seloc book. Everything went almost exactly as it should have...

    Re: problem with Quick Start

    Thank you for the replies. I'm looking for an analog needle meter and may even invest in a dva meter. Ignition system testing isn't quite as intimidating once you get into it a little. Thanks again.

    Re: problem with Quick Start

    The motor ran good all weekend and the new power pack and optical sensor cured the original Quick Start problem. Life is good again. Mr. Reeves, I was wondering if you could answer my question about...

    Re: problem with Quick Start

    Got the boat back. The repair shop checked the ign. system and found that the power pack and optical sensor were bad. It runs good now but I got to thinking about that black/yellow wire at the PP...

    Re: problem with Quick Start

    I found the old PP that I replaced last year. The motor was running when I replaced it, just not very well. Put the old PP on and it would definitely fire better but still wouldn't start. Didn't want...

    Re: problem with Quick Start

    Went to use the boat and all of a sudden it won't start at all. I believe it's related to what was causing the Quick Start to act up. It would fire but only enough to kick the starter out. Checked...

    Re: problem with Quick Start

    Thanks for the reply. I was thinking it may be the temp. switch also. I believe it's the white/black wire that either turns QS on or off - not sure which. Will do some testing when I can get to the...

    Re: Tilt/Trim sensor readings in ohm's??

    Chris, It has been several years since I did this and my memory isn't what it used to be. It seems like one of the connectors was different but the wires were the same color so I spliced them. I...

    Re: Tilt/Trim sensor readings in ohm's??

    I have a 1994 DP-C1 and had a the same problem several years ago. Replaced the sensor and that didn't help - the gauge was still erratic. After alot of searching and testing and poking around in the...

    Power trim electrical problem

    I have a 1994 DP-C1 and the trim UP will not work (most of the time) unless I press both the trim and tilt switches together even if the drive is all the way down. Trim Down works fine. I checked the...

    Re: DP-C1 power trim electrical problem

    You are right- the FC is charcoal gray. I guess I was thinking about the part of the transom shield inside the boat that is pale green. Had to go look at it- the memory isn't what it used to be....

    Re: DP-C1 power trim electrical problem

    When I did the PDS bearing last year the one that came out was an open bearing and I'm sure it was original factory installation. My FC is VP white?/green with no zerk. The cavity between the 2 seals...

    It started working- not sure why. I found some more connections that I cleaned and turned some screws on that black box that looks like a hockey puck- only square with lots of wires. One screw sets...

    I have a 1994 VP 5.7GL with a DP-C1 drive. It's a good combination and with the help of my Sealoc manual (sometimes) and this great forum I have changed the PDS, U-joints etc. etc. Anyway, the power...
