    496 mag ho power issues

    Thanks for the response wingnut. I will pull a couple plugs this weekend again. When I replaced the original plugs they were all in excellent shape. I couldn't find any with soot, wetness, or carbed up at all. I am going to replace the fuel pressure regulator also this weekend as they are cheap and will eliminate any questions there.

    496 mag ho power issues

    Hey guys, I'm needing some help on my 256ssx 2007 model. I have a 496 mag h.o for an engine with 400 hours logged. I am not getting close to WOT rpm's that I should be. I can not get over 4300 rpm's and 45mph is a challenge. I am also getting a very slow plane time, (I couldn't pull a skier if I wanted to!) Here is what I've done to the engine just so everyone is up to speed. I replaced the following: 1. spark plugs 2. fuel filter 3.plug wires 4. checked all compression in cylinders and they are fine 6. checked the fuel pressure and is 43psi. any help I would be grateful... I would take it to a marine shop now that I know the engine block is fine, but they are 3 weeks booked out. The boat runs fine, as far as idling and cruising, it just simply does not have power at all. I checked the prop and it looks fine also. thank you.

    2007 256 ssx anchor light

    I don't have the popup light that is listed in the parts catalog. It has the pole light unfortunately. Here is a pic.

    2007 256 ssx anchor light

    yeah it's just a plug in one. I can see it is a 2 terminal connector. maybe somebody swapped it out at sometime. thanks for the reply.

    2007 256 ssx anchor light

    I can't find the front anchor light (green and red lamp) that plugs into the bow for night boating. I think I will have to order a new one. But can anybody tell me where it is supposed to be stored when not in use? I don't see any bracket to hold it in the anchor locker itself. thanks for your help.

    2007 256ssx arch bimini question

    Hey all, I'm new to the forum and glad to be a new Chap owner! My question is how do I fold up my bimini top so I don't have to completely take apart my entire unit every time I travel. I live in the Midwest where I am trailering my boats 40 to 120 miles. It takes me 30 min. Every time I disassemble it from my arch and the poles don't break down into smaller pieces. Any help would be great! Thanks.
