Re: Yanmar 1GM warning horn

It's back to some value of "fixed". I say that because I maintain that boats are always broken, but on a sliding scale. Mine is back to where I can use it. I replaced the oil pressure sending...

Re: Yanmar 1GM warning horn

Thanks everyone. I'll try to get up there this evening with a circuit tester. And, maybe a rum.

Re: Yanmar 1GM warning horn

Ahh, that's interesting. Got any pointers on how to start that diagnostic? Pull the alternator and take it to the car parts store?

Re: Yanmar 1GM warning horn

I have the B panel. I'm certain that I have the right manual. I suppose that it's possible that someone has changed the panel sometime in the life of the boat. I'd post a picture of the panel, or...

Re: Yanmar 1GM warning horn

Why do you say that? It says, "Yanmar Service Manual Models 1GM 2GM 3GM 3HM" I'm pretty certain that it's right.

I'll see about getting a real gage. Where do I hook it up, though?

Oh, and...

Yanmar 1GM warning horn

Hey, all.

I've got a 30 year old Yanmar 1GM that mostly runs pretty well. Recently, however, the warning horn came on. I checked the lights and shut it down, but I need some help diagnosing it....

Re: Thoughts on Nicro vs. Sunforce solar vents?

WD-40 is not fish oil. It is mostly hydrocarbons.

Re: Squeel while in gear

I'm not exactly sure. Things got a little crazy for a while, and I thrashed some not knowing what I was doing.

About $400 to get it hauled, launched, and power washed. About $360 for 24 days in...

Re: Squeel while in gear

I'm just following up here.

I pulled the boat and did the normal stuff while it was out, and fixed the problem described in this thread.

It was the cutlass bearing that was binding the prop...

Re: Interlux 2000E question

Thank you. I did indeed find the gallon jug to not be full.

Interlux 2000E question

The documentation on the Interlux site and the cans for 2000E both say to mix it in a 3:1 ratio. Yet, it comes packaged as 1 gallon of A and 1 quart of B, which is a 4:1 ratio.

What gives?

New cutlass bearing - indexing mark?

My new cutlass bearing has arrived, but before I installed it I wanted to ask you all about a curious mark on it. It looks like an indexing mark, or alignment mark, but I don't know what it should...

Re: Bottom sanding. Kill me now

It is a 27 foot Cal. I'm wearing a respirator.

VC17m is what I was planning on putting on, over 2000E.

Bottom sanding. Kill me now

I've started sanding the bottom. I've read the line that says, "If you don't know what the previous paint is and you're putting hard paint on now, sand to gelcoat".

Holy ****.

Because it looks like it was right on the edge of the hose?

Re: Shaft log? How's it disassemble?

Looking for replacement parts, I see that pictured is the stuffing box. What the hell is a shaft log?

The other question about disassembly still stands.

Shaft log? How's it disassemble?

Is my vocabulary right? This is the shaft log? I've never been quite clear on that.

More importantly, now that I've got the prop shaft out, I'd like to replace that hose. How does it come...

Re: As long as the boat is out of the water . . .

Thanks for the replies so far.

It doesn't *sound* like a tremendous amount of time in terms of work. 8 hours to sand the bottom? Painting can be done in a day, from my reading. Cutlass bearing,...

As long as the boat is out of the water . . .

I'm sure there are other threads like this, and I apologize if I offend anyone for posting it again.

I've got to haul my boat (1983 Cal 27) for cutlass bearing replacement. I tried to do it in the...

Re: Squeel while in gear

I contracted a local fabricator to make a make-shift press and tried to press the cutlass bearing out in the water. That failed miserably, so I've negotiated with the...

Re: Squeel while in gear

Exactly. With the shaft unbolted from the transmission the prop is still very hard to turn. From under the boat I could only turn it a half-rotation at a time by grasping both blades of the prop...
