  6. Generator wonít start

    Onan Geni. Hit start switch for 20 seconds, it does a split second crank then nothing. Pulled starter. Jumped with cables, it works fine. Rotated engine with wrench, it rotates. Put back together, same issue. Took boat out for 2 hrs, got back to doc, started like nothing was ever wrong.

  9. Possible new owner

    Im looking at an older 56 Hatteras MY with Detroit diesels. 600 hours since last rebuild. My understanding is the starboard side smokes a little even after warming.

    For the second time now I've had to remove a side plate off my 6v92ta in order to get a zinc out for service. These are 3/4 pipe thread with a square head on them.
