Electric Choke Switch Options

Howdy folks! My new, 2016, Yamaha 9.9s have an electric choke and no manual option. The original Yamaha Ignition Switch panel does not include an electric choke switch. The original panel still works reliably, so I'm not inclined to replace it. Although I can flip the choke to the 'on' position afte...

Re: galley sink faucet

Hi Bob, Happy New Year! I've attached pics of my galley setup with Scandvik 10474. The Starboard spacer serves the purpose of minimizing the intrusion into the cabinet storage and covers up the poorly drilled holes of a "Marine Professional". The Whale fittings can be matched with just about any thr...

Re: Replacement engines

They posted the wrong picture. Although they describe it as an XPB and XPA, there is no XPA version. The write up describes it as a remote model that requires control cables. Tiller models do not need that. I suppose someone would call if interested. I would. :idea:

Re: Replacement Engines for 32 Altair

The 2016 and newer T9.9 XPB (remote, long shaft) fit better than the mid 2000 era engines. They come with the ten pin connector, which was plug-and-play on my 2000 PDQ36. They do not have manual choke, so you will need a 'push-to-choke' ignition switch. You could probably pull the manual choke rod o...

Re: No manual choke on 2016 Yamaha 9.9 XPB

I'm going to delay the change of ignition switch since I can manually rotate the choke into position if needed.

I'm still interested in any ideas you may have.

Thanks.

2016 T9.9 XPB only has electric choke, i guess. Here is a pic.

No manual choke on 2016 Yamaha 9.9 XPB

I just replaced old T8s with manual choke with new T9.9s with no manual choke. My 2000 PDQ36 has the standard single key switches that do not have the 'push-to-choke' option. Has anybody else dealt with this? I'm guessing the only option is to replace the old ignition switches with new ones with the...

Re: Replacing Fixed Windows

So, you think 1/8" is enough?

We've got some evidence to support this.

I'll try it.

Re: Replacing Fixed Windows

I found this reference from Dow Corning: https://www.dowcorning.com/content/publishedlit/62-1112-construction-us-tech-manual.pdf I think it says minimum gap and grip are both 1/4". It specifically talks to the much heavier plates on the outside of skyscrapers. Nothing about the lighter lexan applica...

Re: Replacing Fixed Windows

On this page https://blog.koehlmann.ca/marine-maintenance/replacing-the-main-port-windows/ , Koehlmann suggests "about a 1/4 inch" of space is needed for correct bonding. Iriemon from this forum suggests 1/8" is sufficient: http://www.pdqforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=2968&p=11897&hilit=port+sealant...

Re: Replacing Fixed Windows

Hi Drew, Although I'm not replacing the portlights now, I am interested in using Dow 795 to adhere the existing portlights. This article by Don Casey in Sail Magazine describes a method using Dow 795 and VHB tape: http://www.sailmagazine.com/diy/maintenance/replacing-fixed-portlights/ I have not yet...

Re: PDQ 36 mainsail dacron weight?

The sails I replaced were Triton made.

I'll keep them for emergencies.
