  1. Just replaced my starter. Took me a few hrs. Pulling the old one was fairly easy. Getting the new one back in place was tough tho. I removed 1 battery and he exhaust hose. Took a while but success! Didn't realize how slow the old one was actually cranking until now.
  2. I am having a high pitch whine from the engine compartment between 10 mph and 30 mph. I have been told it's the idler pulley and is a common issue. Anyone else have this issue and if so are there aftermarket replacement parts that can keep this issue from coming up again. Engine is 496. Thanks

    HELP!!

    I just purchased a 2005 256ssi with a Volvo 5.7 liter and a duo prop drive. It has twin stainless steel props on it. and a through hall exhaust. I have a couple of questions as to what my reasonable expectations of speed should be versus what the previous owner said they were for him. A. The previous owner told me that he gets "every bit of 50 mph." Although I was skeptical, when I maxed at 44mph @5000 RPM (gps speed) I was a little shocked given the engine and drive combination. The conditions when I got 44 were smooth water, 3 people (400 pounds) and (lets say) a full tak of fuel (70
  5. While attempting to repair another switch contact I have apparently pulled a connector loose from the engine hatch switch on the dash. I have a 2005 256ssi. There is not enough wire to allow me to pull the dash panel forward enough to get my hand to the back of the switches let alone the ability to pull it out far enough to inspect. Is all of that nest of wiring connected to a harness somewhere under there that would allow me to disconnect it and pull the dash panel completely out? Suggestions?
  6. Well The Toddler is almost awake. Uncovered it yesterday and changed the impeller. Three years ago it took 2 of us 4 hours, this time a little less than 2.5 hours. Hawks Score !!!! Notes: I aways disconnect the hatch and prop it open a little more. I removed the battery trays and CC exhaust tube. Makes it easier to get in there. Take belt off climb in hole Disconnect the red supply hose (pull pin) loosen return hose clamp forward of tee. Remove the tension pulley, 2 - 10mm bolts 2 nuts on pump, 2 bolts on tension pulley bracket remove bracket (two different sizes can't remember) Slide pu
  7. Howdy, Just an FYI posting of my experience with my new-to-me Chap. Occasionally I have been getting an alarm at prolonged high speeds although the water temp was not high. So I replaced the impeller in my 2006 256SSI (VP 5.7). It appears to be the first time the impeller has been changed since there was still red paint on the pump bolts. Boat has 215 hours. Anyway, the old impeller was missing two full blades and they were nowhere to be seen in the pump. Ayeeeee! Bad news for an amateur mechanic. I then traced the water output line to the thermostat and removed it (it was much easier t
  8. Sorry for the duplicate posts, not starting off on the right foot here. Hello all, Sorry for the lengthy post. Most is background on our new boat although I do have a head question. Thanks very much for reading and letting me in the club. I have lurked a bit and found some very valuable information here. In December we purchased a 2005 256 ssi with the Volvo 8.1L GXi, captains call exhaust and arch (270hrs) and have naturally been itching to get on the water. We got lucky here in VA and had some good weather to do a sea trial with a surveyor, Capt. Emory Shover based here in northern VA. High
  9. Hey boaters, I purchased a 2006 256ssi with the Volvo 8.1 375hp - f5 duo prop. The boat is a dog out of the hole, plows forever. Top end can hit 45mph (speedo) at 4400rpm. The motor seems to be running strong. Anyone else experience this?
