If your Mfgr. says:
That motor's 7 years old!! Part is no longer available. We lose $$ on service! EPA made me do it! Part's at central warehouse, you'll get it next month. We don't make parts for those. We only do warranty work. Our techs only fix late models. No clue what's wrong! So we'll work time & material.
Here's some quick tips to help you in preventing and troubleshooting starter problems!
WORN OUT BATTERY!
Batteries cause more trouble than any other component in a marine electrical system. Always make sure the battery is FULLY CHARGED and LOAD TESTED before making any replacements of other components.
Be sure to check all the connections and make certain they are clean and tight. In saltwater areas especially, look for any damaged insulation on battery cables and switch leads, and associated corroded wiring. OPEN UP BATTERY CABLE ENDS first, install on posts, THEN tighten up.
Corrosion - the enemy #1 of your cranking circuit! Undersize wire, loose and dirty connections will cause high resistance, heat at the point of the problem, and voltage drop to your electrical components. This heat will BURN YOU and also destroy your electrical components.
Incorrect wiring can easily cause burnouts. Always tag the wires when removing an electrical component. If you are unsure how to connect an electrical component, contact the vendor or the MASTERTECH Questions about what battery to use in your marine application? Here is
