That's possible but I would still like you to try running a ground from the splice to the battery negative. As I posted, they had a bulletin for these and that was the fix at the time. If that doesn't fix it, then I would look at a new MDC box. Also, look at the terminals on the plug and if the box opens, look inside- if the speedos have pitot tubes instead of a paddlewheel, water can get inside if you have hard freezes in winter and the tubes aren't cleared out when winterizing.
Hi Jim, I've sent you a couple of replys but get an error message so not sure if they are making it to you. The moderator has moved the thread to engines/drive trains under maintenance, thanks for any assistance.
Hi Jim, I'm a newbie but I have a post in the general discussion about a 1999 x-star with a hot start problem. Your responses to other posts have been very helpful and gotten me as far as the post indicates but I could use a little direction. Any assistance would be appreciated...thanks
How's life treating you. I thought you were going to visit me at my new shop? In case you forgot I'm wrenching at Summerset Marine in Delavan, yes ,Wisconsin. Hope all is well and greasy! Hope to hear from you soon. Will
Been reading all your posts today and yesterday tryin gto diaganose a fuel pump issue on our 1995 LT-1. Used the boat all day Sunday, went to go back out, wouldn't run. Cranks, has spark, juice at pump relay on post 30 only-pink wire. Fuse for pump good and juice to fuse good. No power at pump. Checking right now the tether, again, and giong to make sure the pump power is tested within first few seconds of turning on the key. Looked at all wires, seem good, no corrosion on any connections either. What are we missing ? Heelppppp!
We sold it today! Sorry to have to tell you that but it was a great 11+ years. I hope the guy who bought it has good luck and as much fun as we had with it.
I guess I will still hang in as a team member for opinions, we all have them.
We plan on down sizing to a ski/fish boat next spring like a Dual Imact Mirro with about a 115 E-Tech on it, the day of the big engine and boat is over for us. I just wanted to simplify my life.
Looks like we may sell the M/C due to lack of interest and high cost. What do you think it could be worth? 940 hours extra prop and boom runs perfect.
Hope you can give me a price to start at. NADA says about $13,500.00. Is Team Mastercraft a good site to sell it on?
I don't have an idea about the salvage value but I would recommend replacing the whole electrical system. Once that stuff gets wet, it's only a matter of time before it has problems, some of which may be dangerous. Changing over to diesel sounds like a good idea, though. Have you contacted them to find out how much they want? If you call an insurance agent, they should be able to tell you more about its salvage value. If the owner's insurer does total it, you'd be buying it from them, not the boat owner. Offer low- the worst they can say is "no".
