    Starts one day, all day, next day wont.

    Nope, mpi 2001 i have tried all throttle levels, none help but at full throttle it pops a lot. owned it for two years, this just started a month ago
  3. This has been going on for a month now. One day, it runs great, starts in less then a second. I can restart it 20 times, and it starts every time. Come back another day, and it doesnt even try to start, just turns over. Even if I advance the throttle, it seams to ramp up a little, but still doesnt come close to starting. Come back a few days later, still wont start. Come back a few days later, and it starts in less then a second and runs great. It started great yesterday, after last week not starting, but before i started it, i had removed flame arrestor. Thinking i was on to something, i cleaned the arrestor but before putting it back on today, i tried to start the engine and it wouldnt start. It is a 5.7 mercruiser.

    exhaust shutters

    I give up, time to call a mechanic.

    exhaust shutters

    I had the hanger on it, and it just pulled off it, so i twisted the other end into a hood so it would be twice as strong, and i still cant get it out.

    I have. The parts are a little wedged in, so this tool isnt strong enough to pull it out.

    It appears the lower ports are called idle relief ports. It that is where the flappers are lodged, can this be ok? it is my understanding that if the flappers are under the divider, the main port is unobstructed and water should not back pressure.

    Not exactly. I just ran pex hose up from the water outlet with a duct tape bump every 10 inches to try to catch the flapper, but no luck.

    I have figured out that the y pipe has a water passage at the bottom and exhaust at the top with a "shelf" separating them. I had been putting the conduit in the exhaust outlet, effectively missing the water outlet, therefor NOT hitting the flappers. I found the water outlet on the bravo 3, but it is much smaller, and has some impossible turns to stick something up there. Still at a loss.

    My daughter was able to get her arm down and remove the second one from the port side, but she could reach the two on the starboard side. Everybody always posts how easy this is. I have been trying for 6 hours.

    I know its been talked about extensively, but i cannot get the old flappers out of my y pipe. I know its what caused my exhaust to leak from the top of the y pipe from backpressure. I was able to get half of one side out, but the second piece is a little further down and nothing seams to work. I pushed a flexible conduit in from the top and the bottom (no bellows), and it doesnt seam to do anything. I can see the pieces with camera, but they never seam to move no matter what i push down there. I even tried a hose with a strong flow of water, but that doesnt do anything.

    Windlass anchor

    Its been a few months since I used it, but from what I remember, the grabbers still spin, it just doesn't catch the rope.

    Windlass anchor

    Trying to retrieve it. I purchased brand new Anchor Rode 200ft 1/2" 8 Plait / 15ft 1/4" G4 Chain. It is what was called for. It pulls it up until there is about 3 feet left before I get to chain, and then it just spins. I have to go pull it up the rest of the way.

    I have a 2001 300 that I installed the pro fish 700 on about 5 months ago. It was a pita, and I am not all that impressed with the retrieval. It seams to slip more than it grips.
