Arcing? That alone doesn't increase the current flow, it just reestablishes it momentarily assuming the circuit is unaltered from stock.

No ignition might suggest an open circuit by itself. But,...

Popping fuses means too much current is flowing. (Duh!) Sounds like a short to ground somewhere.

I wouldn't be upping the fuse size on anything. Follow the suggestions guys are throwing out here...

Are these two events unrelated and just coincidentally occurred so closely together?

Looks good, Dynamite Spike!

I collected a few items (clamps, silicone, etc) yesterday and hope to launch into mine today. Bought a new length of intake hose (1-1/4" ID) so I could retain the...

Snow squalls here right now. Everything is still locked in frozen slumber. Nothing over 40 deg for a high temp in the forecast and mostly under freezing. Spring can't come soon enough.

In my world, a true Mastercraft person loves both skiing and wakeboarding. The more ways to experience the water the better.

Speaking of which, can't wait for the ice to melt around here.

One of our employees way back when put a letter "S" in front of Hyster on one of our fork lifts. I actually thought it was kind of funny, though I didn't let the employees know what I thought.

Water too low. Can't get boat off hoist.

I guess this is a major disadvantage to cantilever hoists; they can only go a fixed distance up and down. Well, it's been incredibly dry with minimal rain around here, and we just haven't had the...
