    Hey Diesel,
    Just stumbled upon your foldable platform thread. I'm looking to do the same and am trying to see if it is a project I can do myself for if it's best to bring it in to the MC dealer. Do you know a good place to pick up these brackets? I treid the link on your thread but it doesn't look like they have those anymore..

    Thanks,
    andy

    Hey Diesel,

    I found an old 2006 thread about the false low oil pressure alarms. Your last post on that topic was about building a resistor pack to fool the electrical oil pressure gauge. I have a 2001 Maristar 230 VRS with the LTR 330 with the same problem--alarm goes off at hot idle. I hooked up the T with a mechanical gauge and am getting good pressure. I tried grounding out the electrical lead, but the alarm goes off for the high pressure too. Did you ever figure out a fix?? my email is lukehart7@gmail.com

    Thanks
    Gordon

    Hey Diesel,

    I saw your comments about aerator pumps/ballast/priming issues. I'm having some problems and wanted to see if you have any advice. I put in a system using the rule 1100's, one fill, one drain on each bag. Drain works perfectly, fill not so much.

    I teed the fills off the engine intake line - engine runs just as cool as ever. The pumps start very slow - and after 3-4 minutes they seem to get fully primed and pick up speed.

    I have them sitting on the bottom of the hull, the engine intake is getting water - i pulled one out while in the water just to check and it seemed to flow well. My checkvalves are horizontal up by the bags - back flow not an issue at all, and no build-up that would cause the pump to have back-pressure. Even took the check-valves off to see if that made a difference - nope.

    Off the engine intake line I have it teed, then a 90 bend, then a plastic full-flow ball, then another 90, then into the pump. The pumps are about 3 inches below the engine coolant intake line.

    Could it be that there is actually backflow into the pump causing the issue? As far as I know, the pump should have water in it, but only so much - was thinking they needed to be at the same level as the intake line? Any other thoughts/advice?

    Thanks -

    JB
