Re: 89 mid cabin nav lights

Mine went out and found the issue to be at the port and starboard nav lights. Wiring and connections burnt and shorted due to heat from the lamps. Replaced with LED nav lights and problem solved.

Re: 1990 International Mid cabin cutlass bearing replacement

Barry you can replace cutlass bearings without removing the strut. You will need to remove your prop and slide a pc. of pipe ( smaller size than cutlass bearing) over the shaft. Check for set screws that may be securing cutlass in place. Drive the pipe forward into strut and the bearing will come ou...

Re: Quadrajet Vacuum Hose Issue

Fuel pump has failed. This is doing what its supposed to do by sending fuel back to carb in event of failure.
Only marine fuel pumps do this as not to leak in the bildge. May have a pump at the house (new), will check later. Let me know if you want it and its yours. Fits crusader 454cu.in.

Re: Mid cabin windshield ground

Bob, I found the same connection when I replaced my horns a few weeks ago. Assuming it grounds to the DC side as the wire is white but not sure, I can not find it on the electrical schematic. My washer nozzles are not leaking but read good advice about avoiding it and put a shut off valve in line at...

Re: genorator frustration- I am about ready to throw it in t

Check for 12voltsthe to fuel pump, if none check it at the oil pressure switch. If both are good check all temp. Hi limits, they should be closed. Also make sure oil level is correct.

Re: 1985 - 10 meter electrical horn issue

Sounds like you are describing the round pc. With two pins. If so it is a typical flouresent lamp starter. Have seen it on mine but did not know what it does. Should be available at local hardware store.

Re: where to start? Fuel gauges not working

Yorklyn, do you know what type of sending units are on the tanks? I have one not working and its a bugger to access. Perhaps a picture of it, I have seen pictures of your deck with inspection plates. Did not want to do this unless no other choice. Thanks in advance.

Re: alternator wiring

Use a 12 volt muti meter and measure voltage at battery terminals while running. Should be at least 13 volts if charging.
Or take it to auto parts store and run on there machine.
