    Signature 350 aft drainage

    I always have water in the first or front floor compartment, which i believe comes from the thruster compartment under the bed. Thruster might need to have gasket tighten. But why isn't the water in the first compartment not draining toward the aft pump which is under the stern room. I think it must be blocked and water simply doesn't go back toward the stern, if it is suppose to communicate?.

    Sig 350 alternator wiring

    I'm checking what i beleive to be wiring hacking from previous owner, where should the wires from the alternator be hooked on (merc 8,1 stern drive)? directly on port and stbd batteries? Or maybe alternator should be connected to starter, so that switching off the DC switch cuts current from going to batteries.

    Chaparral 350 2007 hardtop

    I need to bring a cable up the hardtop. Seems like the pad on the arch as a hinge at the bottom. What is holding the top? Can i just wedge something and pry? or i'll break that pad? The speaker as a ring at the back that will come off if i remove the speaker.

    Genny Cuts off when Air Conditioner turn on???

    Check if water is coming out of exhaust. If so, change plug, if not change impeller or coupling driving the impeller. If you change impeller make sure to close valve at water inlet port, so you don't sink you boat, ;-)

    2000 sig 300 4 in 1 gauge stud???

    On my 2000 signature 300, There is a sticker and the bottom of the 4 in 1 gauge, but its worn out and cant figure out which are for the trim sensor resistance? I want to adjust the trim sender and check the ohms. The connector on the engine is far being and wanted to read ohms at the back of the gauge. So which studs or wire i need to check. I have the wiring diragram but only thing i can figure out is that 6 wires are connected to the 4 i n1; lt blu, tan, br/w, pur, yel, blu

    Trailer trim question

    I have a 2000 Signature 300. with volvo sx drive. On the control i have the 2 small button that i beleive to be for trailer trim. But, unless i do not know how it work, those 2 buttons do nothing. When i trim up the drive using the up down button on the throttle levers, the drive do not seem to go all they up way up to the maximum stroke of the cylinder. But you can clearly hear the pump change in sound when you seem to mechanicly reach the max. Now i'm wondering, are the 2 buttons dummies that are there but not wired and that my boat simply does not have trailer trim? AND some kind of bushing are installer on the cylinder rod to shorten the stroke? If i trim down and up and measure the stroke on the rod and compare it to the length of the cylinder housing, it is clear that it is not completely out something seem to mechanicly preventing it to go any further? I'd love to be able to raise my drive all the way up, i would be able to anchor closer to the beach.
