  1. Un plugged the drive lube sensor and no alarms at all. Add that to the list this winter. Thanks for the info guys!
  2. Thanks, that's what I'll try.
  3. Indy- It is frustrating, I know. I don't think it is anything major but still makes me nervous. MonkeySeall- I will check the Clymer to see if I can check that sensor before replacing. I'd rather put that 60 in the gas tank if I can! TXTWIN- All of the alarm legends I found cite some kind of rythmic or repeating pattern to reference. This beep happens randomly and only once or twice. Thanks
  4. WTF.... Sorry about that not sure why the font changed. 1998 2130 Mercruiser with Bravo 3. Wanted to make sure I got all of the alarm info in I over looked the rest. Several people I have talked to tell me to keep an eye on the fluids and gauges and not to worry about it until something changes. I would rather figure out what is going on. If I have not given a piece of the puzzle please let me know. Thanks again,

  6. I have searched high and low and cannot find pertinent information to my problem. If this has been covered I apologize. 1998 5.7L carbureted engine. Boat runs great, gauges all work, fluids all full. I have been getting random single, short, soft beeps at various times. Recently I think I have narrowed it down to getting onto and coming off of plane, but it does not happen every time. This system does not have a data link hook up so I don't think checking codes is an option. I am guessing there is a short somewhere or the alarm itself is bad but I do not know where to start without just replacing sensors. Any help would be greatly appreciated. -Steve
  7. I'm not sure of the technical name or part number but it sounds like the butterfly in the exhaust manifold to prevent water flowing backward.
  8. Sorry not too much of a mechanic but I generally leave my drive unit down to reduce stress on the bellows. I'm sure someone will be able to provide some insight. Good Luck
  9. Coming to the rescue again..... I hope you've at least gotten a few cold ones along the way somewhere! Thanks again for all your help last year.
  10. Beautiful boat! You will find a lot of useful information here; I know I have!! Happy boating...
  11. nrbsr, Do you need to change the "fouled" plugs in the spring? Thanks
  12. I used an entire can at idle and couldn't get the motor to stumble off. The exhaust was smoking and engine running rough but that was it. A long time boater, (and mechanically inclined) friend at work said that is ok. I am hoping he is correct. Boat was warm at slow idle, 350 w/ 2bl. Building my tarp tee-pee tomorrow.....
  13. Haven't had the pleasure of advice from Wingnut but thank you to Shepard once again. We purchased our first boat this season and got off to a rocky start with mechanical issues. All of those issues appear to be ironed out and we had a great (half of a) season. Although Shepard had A TON of direct advice the site in general provided a wealth of general knowledge. Thank you to all of those who unknowingly helped as well! As much as I love snowboarding I am hoping for a short winter and quick spring!!
  14. Thanks for all of the advice. Haven't been able to get down to the garage lately but hope to get it back together tomorrow night and in the water for a quick dip. Drive is back on, bellows changed, drive sanded and a quick wipe down is all I've been able to do with work. Gimbal bearing is in great shape so I left it alone. U joint bellow was good but figured it should be changed anyway. So far the only surprise was finding what was left of shutter assembly in the drive. Picked up gaskets and shutters today. (Should have checked with Shepard first though....) Oh well, live and learn! I am really glad we ended up with another Chaparral after all. This forum has been a big help along the way. Thanks to Shepard and everyone else who has helped. (Most without even knowing!!)
