  1. 43C Glendinning Help

    A friend here at the marina has a 1984 43C with 6V92s. His synchronizer is out. The indicator light at the helm illuminates, but that's it. I've been all over that boat and can't find the ECU. Can anyone give us some guidance on where to look or where there may be fuses for the Glendinning...

Regardless, what would be The simplest way to change out the coolant? The...

  3. What is this?

    Is this something anyone's seen before? Something to do with the toilets. My old Hatt had Galley Maid toilets. It didn't have all this stuff..

  4. oil change on perkins 40 kw generator

    Anyone, Just got back from Puerto Rico. I have a home there with a 40 KW generator ( perkins diesel). The sales company says I should change oil every 200 hours. Their mechanic says every 150 hours the service manual says every 500 hours. (On my boat it changed every 100 hours.) The unit uses...

  5. 43DC - 6kW Generator enough?

    I'm thinking of replacing my existing 7.5kw OhNo MDJE on my 1976 Hatteras 43 DC with a 6kW unit. I rarely use the generator as I have inverter, but when I do below is typically what is running. Does anyone run a 6 kW generator and get away with running similar load? I can get a really good deal...

  6. Exhaust hose leak

    I discovered a leak in the rubber hose that connects the two separate pieces of exhaust pipe on the starboard engine (located under the sink in the aft cabin). This boat is new to me so I am still learning but apparently this pipe sits at/just below the water line and also discharges the fresh...

  7. Were lead pig ballast common from the factory?`

    So I am pulling a fire extinguisher cabinet to gain access to the back of one of my heads and see 25 lead pigs strapped in the area. Was this common or more likely something a PO did? As I have developed a slight list and can find no water accumulating anywhere, is there any reason not to add...

  9. Exclamation Oil change help

    I have a 53' 1977 convertible with twin detroit deisel 1271TI engines. The reversco op6 oil drain pump has 3 hoses connected in series to the engines and generator. I do not see a switch that would allow draining the oil 1 engine at a time. It appears all 3 will drain at same time. Is there a...

  10. Major freshwater pump concern

    Since we purchased our 55c we have not been away from the dock long enough to necessitate freshwater but are planning an extended trip so I was looking over the system and discovered this on my freshwater pump. The breaker is off to ensure no power running to it, looking for ideas what would have...

  11. Swaging wire rope

    Any pointers? Im going to make a lifting harness for a 13 whaler tomorrow with a swage tool from west marine that uses two bolts to crimp. Is it pretty straightforward or is it easy to damage the rope/cable?

  12. Davit Flex...how much is normal?

    As per my other thread, I successfully lifted my whaler aboard today. I was watching closely how it loaded up as I know the whaler is heavy and likely near capacity. When coming under load, the tip of the davit comes down a good 6 as the whaler hangs. The arm itself is not bending. The deck...

  14. 12V71tic Injector Timing: What are you doing?

    My motors are Covingtons rated at 850HP originally equipped with 9215 injectors and a specified 1.496" timing height. At some point, a PO installed M15's. Someone penciled in a timing height of 1.508" in my book. I do not know who or when or if that value was for the original injectors or the...

  15. Sentry charger surging

    My 32v sentry charger occasionally surges, meaning it will come on for a few seconds, shut off, and repeat several times. I can "reset" the unit by flipping the breaker for awhile and it seems to correct itself. I have tried to pinpoint whether there is a certain electrical source that would...

  16. 8V71TI Emergency Shut-down Air Damper Function?

    I have a 1976 46C Hatteras with 8V71TI engines that I bought about a year ago and have been doing a few repairs during that time. One of the things I noticed early on was that the cables from the emergency shut-down t-handles on the flybridge were corroded to the point that neither of them would...

  19. Help with part name or gasket part number
