Dingy motor hoist

Does anyone know where to get a motor hoist for the dingy? What research I have done shows very expensive systems. Maybe something to clamp on a rail that can be portable. Would love suggestions

Re: stuffing box lock nut

The stuffing box for the prop shaft is what I was referring to. Just want to slow the drip a bit. The lock nut is on there pretty tight so as to loosen it so I can tighten it a bit. I want to put off repacking them with new cord until I pull her out in the winter for a bottom job. I know they need t...

Re: bleeding process when changing fuel filters

thinking I soloved the filter problem by changing them I still had the restriction and thought maybe it could be in the fuel injectors or motor so I tried to eliminate the motor as a possible problem all together.. I simply used a 2.5 gallon can of diesel and routed the fuel feed into the racor into...

Re: bleeding process when changing fuel filters

my update to my fuel filter problems and some advice to others who may or may not check this area when changing filters. I had a fuel restriction problem. My first thought was to change the filters and hoped that solved the problem while I was underway. As my copilot was running us home on one motor...

Re: bleeding process when changing fuel filters

I would advise people to write this down because you never know when you may have to change filters on the go.....I like most everyone carry ext...

Re: 100hp yanmar starter replacement for pdq 34

thanks duane…..I did get your boy jeff to come out and he looked at it....I am glad you told me about the solenoid placement as he hasn't done the work yet....seems like a good guy and I will see if he can put it in a more accessible spot.....there is enough visible corrosion on the starter to warra...

genius windlass

has anybody encountered their windlass just turning itself on? I woke up to mine just running non stop at 7am and have no idea how long it was running but the unit was extremely hot to the touch. The only way I could turn it off was to unplug the wired remote. If anyone can offer a solution to this ...

Re: 100hp yanmar starter replacement for pdq 34

the problem is on the port side which has less room to work with. It is a intermittent problem. I believe I can hear the clicking sound from the solenoid and the battery underload is solid. That alternator removal looks like a good idea. I may call that guy you use from PGI as I don't want to invent...

100hp yanmar starter replacement for pdq 34

I am not quite sure how to access the starter as there is not much room to work with. If anyone has any ideas what may need to be removed to get at it I would be extremely grateful for the advice. If it is too much of pain what recommendations do anyone have for a mechanic in the port charlotte area...
