    Add a battery

    A fuse goes to the ACR side not the main cable , use a fuse rated for your alt output

    Replacing the fuel water separator

    And if this is a standard type spin on that was installed incorrectly you may have to remove the complete assembly, drain, heat area where rubber O ring is ,then twist off. When installing, OIL the rubber ring AND HAND TIGHTEN ONLY

    Twin Mercs Trim Pump Schematic

    in most applications the trim pump wiring for a single is the same for a twin. You dont want to raise or lower both drives with 1 button. Most are wired directly to the starters main lug thru a 90A fuse link while some are wired to the motors starting battery

    Trace the cable from the starter and put Red tape on it,If the battery was reversed you would blow the 90A fuse link so you would get no power anywhere

    H20 Fuel Vent Fix/Problem

    A few things can help eliminate this issue. All fuel vent lines must have a loop atleast 10-12 inches above the vent. The vent should be facing aft so water cant just splash in If necessary install a clam shell over the vent angled to the stern. For the engine install the larger spin on type filter/sep BEFORE the small volvo filter/sep at the pumps. Sierra 1879911 or install the racor rac320RRAC02. It has a metal base and drain plug to check for water without unscrewing the filter

    Need help replacing coupler to Bravo 3

    Might want to look into a standard Alpha type coupler. your not pushing the horsepower to require a bravo coupler. It will do the same job

    Need help replacing coupler to Bravo 3

    No, The rear housing is removed first, but the dust cover bolts cant be reached with the motor in the boat. then you unbolt the coupler from the flywheel. You have to atleast raise the motor up far enough to work on it . Coupler failure is from engine /coupler misalignment and thats usually cause by collapsed rear bushings so plan on replacing them too.

    Help with Engine Shutdown, Fuel Filter?

    It`s the reason I remove the ships Red power lead and go directly to the starters main post. See no reason to fuse 90A and have a inline 50A main power breaker too. I leave the 90A in the alt charging circuit only

    Electrical issue

    IF the batteries are good, AND IF all the connections are good then a soft click is a bad slave solenoid, a hard crunch is a frozen stater or motor.. You say 2 items on the same battery exhibit the same condition then suspect a bad battery or a corroded connection
