View the latest post Closed cooling overheating - solved

In the interest of saving some fellow boater a trip "down a rabbit hole", I offer. My 1995 Santego 5.7 TBI had overheating problems, especially at idle in long no wake zones. After impellers (several), one new / rebuilt, raw water pump, professional heat exchanger cleaning, new thermostats - I finally got serious about pulling some hoses and troubleshooting. It appeared that the engine coolant circulating pump was weak (no noise, no leaks). So I hustled on down to Carquest and picked up a replacement for about $50 and a couple gallons of antifreeze. Port engine now rock steady at 170*. Starboard replacement pump is now in hand and going in ASAP. I hope this is helpful to somebody.

View the latest post Need some help in san diego for a crusader 350

Hey guys I've got a 89 carver 3207 and over the last few months I've put I don't know how many hours and how much money trying to restore the boat and really get the engines in order mechanically and I've done that for the most part , I've got just a few things left til she's really turn key. I posted a few days ago about the starter for the port side engine I replaced but when I start the boat there is a terrible noise that is the fly wheel hitting the tip of the ring on the end of the starter. The brand new starter I put in I matched at a boat parts store with the old one we matched them up side by side on the table and I can't for the life of me figure out how this is happening, I took it out and put it in there twice just to be sure. The new starter has been damaged after inspection. Does anyone have any ideas I'm lost on this one.

View the latest post Battery Question

96 380 Santego

I have two systems a house set up with two AGM‘s and a cranking set up with two lead acid batteries. Both systems have the 2nd battery wired in parallel but system 1 is isolated from system 2 on the + side unless of course someone puts the battery switch in the BOTH position. HOWEVER ALL the negatives/ engine grounds are tied together.

My question: If my house system call it #2 is low at 9V and #1 system is good at 12.7 . Without hooking up any charger they will EQUALIZE… How does that happen?? Is it through the negative side of the circuit somehow?

Thanks so much for your wisdom I’m still learning.. should I separate the negative/ grounds for each system?

View the latest post Voltage problem

Recently purchased 2000 Carver mariner 350. My problem is my boat runs great for literally six hours bringing it back home then all of a sudden when we brought both engines down to 5 miles an hour in a no wake zone the left shut down and will not restart limp at home on one engine, wait until the next day and it starts up like nothings wrong. Ran it for a couple hours. The next day ran like a top slow down to another wake zone left onion shut off limp at home again next day it starts right up. Somebody suggested that it might be a voltage problem anybody else have Any input on what might be my problem?

View the latest post Windlass problem on 2000 396 aft cabin

Yesterday, we took the 2000 396 aft cabin out for a day on the water. When we anchored, the windlass operated as usual while deploying the anchor. When it was time to leave, the windlass was frozen and would not retrieve the anchor. I tried to use the manual handle but the windlass would not budge. We had to pull up the anchor by hand.

Any ideas as to the cause of the problem and suggested fixes?

View the latest post Re: Some Information alluding me, PLEASE help!!

Greetings!!!! I am a new owner of a 1986 Carver 3697 Mariner. I have two rather vexing questions. ONE! I have found a few of the needed through-hulls, engine cooling for example, however, I do NOT think I have found them all! MIGHT there is someone who can help me locate ALL the needed through-hulls? and Second!!!!! While checking fluids on the different engines, I am NOT finding where to check the oil, or even drain and refill the oil on the Onan 6.5 Kw Generator onboard. MIGHT someone be able to help me with where to check the oil? and then also to change the oil? I am GUESSING, for both engines and the generator, it might be easier to use an oil evacuation pump to drain the oil. But help from those who know would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thank you in advance!!
