    Kohler 5Kw Generator - High Voltage Issue

    I replaced the Voltage Regulator after trying to adjust my original unit without any luck. It worked like a charm and was an easy fix. Thanks guys.
  2. My Kohler 5KW generator seems to be running fine. However, when I switch to off shore power and on to the genset, the meter is off the chars at 150V AC. I had blown the 10A Voltage regulator fuse which prevented the unit from running. It may blow again, i'm afraid to keep the thing running at 150V. I can't find anything in the docs to adjust the voltage regulator. Has anybody seen this issue? Thanks, David Bright Side

    Kohler Generator wont stay running?

    My Kohler 5KW gen set won't stay running. It will start but as soon as you release the start button it quits running. I'm thinking maybe it's related to the broken impeller sleeve issue that I had and fixed. Is there an overheat sensor that need to be reset? I can't find it in the docs. I have seen this mentioned several times online, but no solutions yet. Thanks all. David Bright Side Myrtle Beach SC

    Flip down Tv in my 260. Let see what you did.

    Check out the 12V Naxa NX-555 DVD/HDTV LCD combo. Tons of external connections so you can hook it up to your stereo or multiple screens. Pretty cheap too. David Bright Side Myrtle Beach

    kohler impeller shaft not turning

    Correct. The sleeve was indeed cracked. I have replaced it. The impeller was OK. Now the problem is it won't stay running. It will start but as soon as you release the start button it quits running. I'm thinking maybe it's related to the broken impeller issue. Is there an overheat sensor that need to be reset? I can't find it in the docs. I have seen this mentioned several times online, but no solutions yet. Thanks all.

    kohler impeller shaft not turning

    My Kohler Model 5E PA-19905 Generator is not working. It will start, the filter is clean. The impeller looks OK. THE DRIVE SHAFT FOR THE IMPELLER IS NOT TURNING. Anybody had this happen? Thanks, David Sig 260

    Trim Not Working Sig 260

    Problem solved. Actually two problems.... The first issue we found was likely the culprit for the other issue. That was a bad (like not attached at all) ground to the engine block. The main ground from the battery to the block was hanging loose. Check this photo of the original crimp style connector. http://www.flickr.com/photos/njboy/4992191022 The Second issue, which I think was caused by the faulty ground, and everything taking ground from wherever it could - was a fried connector. This is the connector from the main wiring harness to the motor. I could not get it apart to test it while in the boat. This was because it was melted solid. After pulling the entire pump assy out of the boat and putting it on a bench, it took all of two minutes to find the problem. http://www.flickr.com/photos/njboy/4991584145 It's a miracle the boat even started. It did cough and sputter a little which I thought was a faulty IAC. Not so. It was this ground issue. It took several days to find these gremlins. It's a wonder it didn't start a fire. Hope this helps the next guy. BTW: MUCH easier to relocate the pump from the port to starboard side. HAPPY BOATING Y'ALL David

    Trim Not Working Sig 260

    Found it - Kinda... Had positive on the up relay on both sides of the relay - odd.... We put a ground to one side, and the up control worked the pump. I also have negative on both sides of the relay on the down side. Not a fuse, not the pump. Scratches head - thinking it's gotta be a bad relay. I'll keep looking at it. FYI Bright Side. - (Thanks Jerry)

    Trim Not Working Sig 260

    My outdrive trim stopped working on my Signature 260. I have checked all the fuses (That I could Find) including the 10 amp fuse located on the pump, both breaker panels, the fuse panel under the steering wheel, and the fuses in the black box behind the air cleaner. I hear the relays respond, but the pump won't start. Am I missing a fuse somewhere or is it just time for a new pump? Any suggestions? Thanks!! Bright Side

    Hatch Leak, Plywood Rot

    Hi all. I have a 2003 Signature 260. Great boat, BUT... The hatch has leaked for what appears to be a long time. When I pulled the hatch to reseal it, I found water had gotten under the fiberglass decking and is rotting away the plywood pretty much all the way around the hatch. Can anyone give me advice on the best way to remedy this? Thanks!! "Bright Side"
