  1. I bought it in October of 2016 and started using it after the winter in June '17. I did tune up and everything that was recommended by the Marina before I put it in the water. I put about 20-25 hours on it. Thanks!
  2. I have a 2002 Chaparral Signature 260 with a Mercruiser 350 MAG MPI. Since I bought it that I felt it was not giving me all the power it could. Now, it's been acting up even more. It does not start unless you accelerate it and it smokes quite a bit. A mechanic that happened to be at the marina stopped by and connected his laptop to it. No error was found. He said he did not have all the tools he needed, but his next step would have been checking fuel pressure. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated. The engine has 520 hours. Thank you!
  3. Thanks everybody! #iggy: I'm not sure about J1939 diagnostics. I assume this is a device you connect to the boat to get diagnostics on the boat? Is this something that can be bought? Where would you connect it? Thanks! #TNBrett: yes, it goes from zero to max as soon as the key is turned on. The mechanics from the marina have been messing with it and I lost confidence in their work so, yes, they may have replaced the wrong oil pressure sensor. I will take a closer look myself. #jdsdls05: I will try what you suggested. What does a transducer look like? Thanks!
  4. I have a 2002 Chaparral Signature 260 and it has a 4-in-1 (voltage, trim up/down, oil pressure, temperature) gauge. Oil pressure is always maxed out. We replaced the sensor and measure oil pressure and appears normal. It seems to be the gauge. Any idea of whether these can be fixed? or where to get a new one? See pics attached for part # and look. In the picture the boat is turned off so the gauges are all the way down.
  5. Thanks Wingnut. I will verify tomorrow.
  6. Thanks Paulswagelock. I did a quick search online and it appears the trim pump assembly has two solenoids (one for up and one for down) and one of these needs to be replaced. These are not relays as I expected unless I'm missing something. Thanks again!
  7. Hello All, I recently purchased a 2002 Chaparral Signature 260. I am having issues with the trim down; it's intermittent. I think it's the down relay but since I do not have an electrical diagram of the boat, I am not sure where the relays are located. I found two relays above the engine but I am not sure these are it (see attached pic). Any help verifying these are the trim relays or help finding these would be very appreciated. Thank you!
