    Chap 330 owners which grill stows topside?

    Thanks for the feedback. I will go take a look at the magma A10 and wait to see if the Cabo fits somewhere. My swim latter is on the same side of the boat as the gas cap, so not sure if mounting the pedestal there will cause any danger... thoughts?
  4. After reading grill reviews I went and purchased a weber q 1200, and now have to take it back since it won't fit under any of the seats on sunbridge. I know I can store it in engine compartment but it seems like a hassle to move everyone to front of boat every time I get the grill out. So just wondering which grill do you have that can be stored someplace easy? Thank you -Jeff

    330 Signature DSM250 location

    well I checked all over engine compartment, under the seats, every compartment I could find, and don't see it. I don't have a speaker under the throttles. If I trace the old cable it goes into engine compartment and is then bunched with all of the wiring that goes up the side of boat. It could be in the dash under the gauges, I will try and check there I guess.

    330 Signature DSM250 location

    I ordered the replacement p66 transducer and found a manual for the dsm250 in with my Raymarine C80 Manuals, does anyone know where this unit would be mounted? I have the wiring for the old transducer I can trace but after it comes in the boat it looks like it is fed in with a zillion other cables into the front somewhere. Any advice or help would rock Jeff 2004 chaparral 330 signature

    Engine won't stay running - solved

    Thank you Wingnut, it was the IAC valve. I found and alternative part for 65 bucks at Napa and the engine runs like a champ now. May order the the Volvo version in case this one acts up down the road.

    Engine won't stay running - solved

    Ok thank you. I will keep Googling until I find out what items to check.
  11. I have been out on the chappy twice now, and have some issues with port side engine. Starboard side cranks right up and runs smooth. Port side only wants to start when I give it some throttle, and will stay running fine while the throttle handle is forward a bit. When I shift in to Neutral it dies, most of the time, no matter if engine is warm or cold. Sometimes it doesn't die, but thats 1 out of maybe 6 times. usually dies. It will start right back up with some throttle forward, but when I go in Neutral to shift into gear (FWD or REV) it dies again. Also of note, the throttle/shifting on that engine is pretty rough feeling when I shift, like significantly harder to move and "Sticky". It needs to be pushed quite a bit further ahead than the starboard throttle to engage the engines, and needs to stay further ahead to keep engines synced... Could it be the throttle or shift cable? The boat is in a slip and I can have the cables changed in a week or so when it is out of the water, meanwhile what else can I check on my own before calling in paid help? I have some time this weekend. Volvo Penta 8.1 GI-E Last service on engine was just in March they changed the fluids and filters, impellers have been a few years its on my list.

    2004 sig 330 questions

    330- Thanks for the ideas. Down in the cabin there is a flat screen TV along with a DVD player and stereo. The stereo isn't really working but seems to be hooked up only to the speakers in the cabin. Up top he has a stereo mounted to the left of the raymarine nav unit that runs the speakers in the Radar Arch. Not sure if there are two stereos stock or if he added the second one in cockpit? I replaced that unit with my Fusion already, not sure if I'm going to try and tie the whole system together or just keep two stereos. I do like the idea I've seen where there is a tv mounted on arch might try that after I get a few months under my belt and finish all of the regular maintenance items... I like the kumma mount idea, seems easy to store and clean. Wife already wants a tender not sure how that complicates the use of swim platform. Suns out tomorrow we are going to spend a couple hours on the lake!

    330 signature gas piston question

    330 signature gas piston question

    I have a 2004. I looked up the specs in the parts guide and bought a piston with the same specs - 20" gas piston, compressed length 12", 8" stroke. bought it from amazon. But it seems the two mounting locations need to be just a couple inches from each other when the door is shut all the way, unless the top or bottom mount allows the piston to "slide" in somehow, I don't see how it would work. Can someone confirm theirs is mounted with fixed mounts?
