Re: WABASTO HEATER PROBLEMS

If you took a wave and got sea water in the exhaust, that could cause your symptoms as well due to no draft shut down. Remove the plug at the low spot on the exhaust and see what comes out.

Re: Ford Lehman air filter replacement

K&N RC-4570 is a good fit. 2-7/8" ID, and it's offset so you can vent the crank case into the top of it if you want. I like Bjorn's idea for venting though!

Re: Higher temperature in port engine

Not to confuse things, hopefully, but that port temp looks pretty normal for a 6BT @ 2200 rpm's. If anything, the stbd is running cold. Is your stbd motor plumbed to a hot water heater heat exchanger? You still might benefit from boiling out the exchangers anyway, but see if you can get an IR thermo...

Re: 3 way valve operation

Counterclockwise. If the waste is now going to the holding tank, the handle points to the hose in use. Align it with the overboard hose. If that’s where you had it before and it didn’t work, then there is an obstruction somewhere between the valve and overboard. Is the though hull valve for the disc...

Re: Starboard Rudder Bracket

Don, I replaced both my rudder brackets with stainless steel, and have one good one available. The other was rusted out. The bracket can be done with the boat in the water, but not the packing. Put a couple hose clamps on the rudder post just above the packing nut to keep it from dropping. PM if you...

Re: Stewart Warner Ammeter Gauge

Unless your ammeters were upgraded or rewired at some point, the original set up didn't have shunts. It was a pass through directly from the alternator output. Below is a link to a DC schematic for your vintage from the "manuals" list on the site. Doesn't solve your problem, but hope that ...

Re: Remote starting from Bridge

CharlieO, The wiring explanation and diagram are for the alarm switches only. The upper helm start and stop buttons are simply wired parallel to the lower helm start and stop buttons. If they were factory, they would have worked at some point. That they are buttons suggests that you have stop soleno...

Re: Remote starting from Bridge

Your existing main alarm switch at the lower helm will have two connection points. The new single pole/double throw (SPDT or On-ON) toggle switches at each helm station have 3 connection points, usually in a line. One of the existing switch wires gets connected to the center (called "common&quo...

Re: Where is the likely place for fuel leaks?

Look close at the return lines. If it was the tank, it would leak all the time, not just underway.

Re: Remote starting from Bridge

It's not factory, but I took out the lower helm master switches and installed SPDT (on-on) switches upper and lower instead. You'll need three wires (per engine) from the lower helm to the upper helm switch locations to hook them together, wired just like house 3-way circuits that FrugalWife mention...
