    2006 330 Signature Engine Mount Cracks

    Last boat I did had a similiar issue, test boring found wet wood from the forward bulkhead thru the engine bed stringers and mounts all the way to the transom.Being under the motor mount itself is an issue if the motor starts trying to torque itself over

    175-200ft of anchor chain instead of chain & rope

    Anchors dont work going straight down ,so using a modest 5-1 scope your looking at a depth of 40 feet 10 feet of chain and 600 feet of 1/2 inch is more than plenty

    2012 287 SSX BLOWER MOTORS

    That would be so that in the event of a fire, the system discharges, and the blowers shut down to stop feeding fresh oxygen to the fire. Sort of a oxymoron considering the blowers actually suck air from the bilge

    Two New Batteries Dead

    Should use the battery switch according to the odd or even date . Never have the switch set to both except to emergency start the motor. A quick check for the alt is to turn the key to on, look at the voltmeter, start engine, look for a rise in the voltage to around 13.6- 14.0. No rise in voltage = no charging

    To Forward Face or not, that is the question...

    I would stick with a mercruiser drive but in any case stick with a traditional facing drive With a traditional drive the skeg and lower bullet end hit first. Most hits destroy/damage the prop anyway but a soft strike might not. Foward facing props take the first hit and I bet the prop shaft will be destroyed too

    Thru hull exaust and reversion

    To put a finish on this post the reversion was cured by extending the exaust outlet approx 10 inches and cutting in a 10 deg uplift to center it on the 4 inch exaust so not to burn a hole thru it again .2 inch SS thin wall tubing was used to extend the outlet.

    Lube leak

    i did bind the shift linkage slightly when i started to bolt it together. Well you could have cracked the shift shaft plate that has a seal in it but that would be leaking from the lower unit, If you see oil coming from above that like from the upper part of the shift shaft then its leaking into the bellow

    Lube leak

    To leak into the bellow means the carrier seal and/or yoke have gone bad

    trim switch works one way

    short these 2 wires and see if the up trim now works, Yes= trim limit switch is bad. Plug at the pump supplies 12v to the wires at the helm, they activate the trim pump solenoids. If you hear clicking when you hit the up trim, the up solenoid is bad, you confirm this by shorting the 2 large posts
