View the latest post Attachment(s) Priming AC water pump
Greetings. I am looking to confirm what seems to be the common way of priming the AC water pump.
If we put a water hose in the discharge, do we just put enough water in to fill the discharge and then turn the on the AC?
Also, can anyone confirm the AC discharge is the far left discharge with the stain in this photo?[image][/image]

I have. 2000 Carver 396 with a Kohler 5kw diesel generator. It ran when I bought the boat last summer, I had someone come service it but didn’t try and run it after. Last weekend we went out and it wouldn’t start. Battery is charged but it does nothing when you flip the start switch. No crank, no click, no nothing. I am wondering if there is a battery disconnect somewhere. The space is tight but I don’t see one…. Anyone know where it would be or have other ideas?

2006 396 MY with Volvo 8.1 Gi won’t throttle up past idle on the port engine. I swapped out the throttle body from the starboard engine and still had the same issue. Replaced the throttle position sensor and still not working right. Engine will start and throttle up after disconnecting the battery but when shut off and started again won’t throttle up. It’s almost like it going into a safe mode. Strainers are clear and no overheating issues while idling. Any ideas?

View the latest post Attachment(s) Fresh Water Pump Plumbing
I've been fighting my freshwater pump for the last 3 days my body is very sore from reaching underneath things and man handling pipes.
My current dilemma is this 90° fitting that goes into the filter. I can't seem to get an angle on this to loosen it enough to get the filter off. I had to remove the entire pump and then twist it around and circles to unscrew it. Anyways what I want to do is replace this elbow with something that has fitting on both ends so that I can remove it without having to remove the entire pump assembly.
Is there an easy option for replacing this Qest elbow?

2006 56 Voyager has Logo lights on each exterior side of the Bridge Deck. The Bridge deck rocker switch has LOGO label. Has anyone changed the light bulbs? The Logo emblem is either acrylic or hard plastic and I don't see any screws or pry open slots on the exterior. Rather than taking apart panels on bridge deck I'm hoping someone here has replaced the bulbs and can advise how to access them.

I have a 2003 396 with Cummins 370 engines.
Been chasing a Diesel leak for a while now and have finally found it! the transfer pump mounted on the aft area in the engine bay behind the port engine. I have isolated the transfer pump but shutting the valves at the tank to the transfer pump, and turned off the breaker to that pump (which is actually always off for me unless I'm going to use it).
So my real question is; has anyone rebuilt one? if so where do you get the parts? I have looked up the part number in the Carver Manual and found nothing online:
Carver Part number:
Pump: Fuel Transfer NO SW - 6007401 - ENG=960, or 9D6, OR=962
The electric motor is fine, but the gaskets that enclose the pump itself is where the leak seems to be coming from. Any thoughts?

I previously traversed this waterway back in 1997. At the time my boat was a 1996 Bayliner 2855 Ciera Sunbridge one of the best boats I have ever owned. I've been wanting to go back again but if I were to go in the Carver it would cost me $4300+ just for fuel so I am going back the first week of August during my vacation.
I've decided to tow my jetski up north and will, weather permitting do the waterway on my Yamaha. Really looking forward to this trip. It will be great to cruise that waterway once more. Not getting any younger 71 at the moment so it's now or possibly never.
Here is a link about that waterway: http://www.fishweb.com/maps/inlandwater/index.html
Driving up to Mackinaw City Tuesday August 3rd plan to do the waterway on the 5th if all goes well. If Lake Huron is calm enough I may launch and take the ski out onto Lake Huron and possibly cross under the Mackinaw Bridge into Lake Michigan. Have already had the jetski out on Lake Erie and Lake St. Clair. Would like to add lakes Huron and Michigan to the tally.

View the latest post Attachment(s) Breaker Panel
I have a 1986 32 Mariner with a windlass switch issue. I cannot find the breaker.
I have been told that there may be another panel other than the main panel in the cabin.
Appreciate any help
