Hi again,

If you look at the picture that is a couple of posts up you will see what I'm talking about. The two big red wires are on either side of the solenoid. One comes from the battery, one goes...

I think your problem is in the starter solenoid. I've encountered this many times. If the starter clicks but does not engage, but will if you try enough times, it is not the battery or the...

Two drains? Hmmm. I only seem to be able to find one, between the bilge and the locker. Is there any way for water to enter the locker at the front somehow? It doesn't seem likely but it seems that...

Water in ski locker

Hi all,

I have been breaking in a new to me 1993 Prostar 205. I really like the boat but have been experiencing a strange problem with it. The ski locker seems to stay quite dry while the boat is in...

So, are you saying that the starter engages but the motor won't spin, or does the starter not even try to spin? If the motor is hydrolocked I have seen the starter get stuck but it would be a strange...

Window latch

Hi all,

I have a 1993 Prostar 205. The two latches that hold the walk through window closed are broken. I thought it would be relatively simple to find a replacement but it is proving to be...

I did exactly what you are doing with a PS 190 a few years ago. I had to build the complete interior (seats, side panels etc.). It cost me about $1,500 for a shop to so all the upholstery, including...

Jim,

I was thinking of doing the valves while it was apart and had thought that it was probably wise to do the rings and bearings at the same time. I did just the top end on my TR6 motor once and...

Thanks guys,

I like the idea of removing the bolts from the engine, thanks Jim. I was thinking about freshening it up a bit while it's out. It's had one weak cylinder (#7), indicated by having less...

Engine Removal

Hi all,

I need to replace the rear main seal on my motor (351 SO in a 1990 PS190). I am trying to decide if I should pull the transmission, damper plate, flywheel and keep the motor in place or if...

To remove those allen bolts all you have to do is cut down a regular allen wrench. You cut the short end so it is only about 1/2 an inch long and it is easy to get the bolts out then. The design of...

Thanks guys,

That's good news for me. Before I get too excited I need to make absolutely certain it's not the pan gasket but I'm pretty sure it's not.

Pulling the transmission is not too bad of a...

Amber 6, Thanks for the reply. I gather yours was leaking transmission oil into the bell housing?

I'm really wondering about the rear main seal on the engine. I believe sometime in the late

Rear main seal

Hi all,

My engine was leaking a fair amount of oil into the bilge this summer. It's not coming from any of the easy to fix places (valve covers, timing cover etc.). It appears to be coming out at...

That looks like it should work. Nice diagram. I think the ballast resistor just becomes a junction box once you put the jumper wire in place.

Hopefully that will fix the hot no/start issue.

I don't know why there would still be a ballast resistor in there if it's converted to EI. I think the only purpose of a resistor is to knock the voltage down to prolong the life of the points. No...

Jim,

Litres/quarts - close enough :)

Mine is the same. If I drain all the oil and then fill with 4 1/2 litres it will be way over the full mark on the stick. I have been too lazy to scribe a new mark, I just know where it should...

Hi there,

Having gone through a similar rebuild a few years ago on a PS 190 I would recommend you go straight to wet sanding. It's time consuming but is likely the only thing that will bring the...

I still think you might want to check the damper plate. I suspect the sound you are hearing when you engage the transmission and the backfiring are separate issues.

Hopefully it's not too expensive...

Kingu,

If it helps, you should be able to do away with that orange wire that comes from the solenoid. It's purpose was to provide 12 volts to the distributor when you were cranking, and only when...
