Post pictures - we're much better when we can see what's going on... this way you can spend less time fixing and more time skiing, boarding, footing, surfing, partying...did I say skiing?

On the blower, does the switch light up? If so, check the actual fan inside the blower housing itself. Try to give it a spin with your finger (switch off). When I got my boat last fall, I spent a good bit of time tracing/testing the circuit, only to find that the fan itself had seized from not being used. Once I "broke" the fan free, it worked fine for a while (but ultimately i did replace as the bearing became noisy). Got a replacement for about $30 (mine was a 3" diameter). Good luck and welcome to the forum--great folks here always willing to lend a hand and sometimes a little humor or sarcasm. Oh yeah. . .pix are kind of a big deal here too!

When a bilge pump gets hung up, its usually due to corrosion and time to replace so it works when you need it. Sometimes they will suck in some debris and plug up. Put a garden hose against the pump outlet and give it a little backflush. Sometimes that is all it takes.

I'm heading to work now but I should have time to work on t and take some pics for you guys on Sunday. The whole engine compartment definitely has some nasty buildup and the bilge does look pretty gross.. It's getting definitely getting replaced but I will try to see if it's just plugged up also

Well, I just learned something about that. Thanks. I will be going to hardware store to get a new spring. Mine is not so bad that it is able to be pushed, but the button does get stuck every now and then. Do you by chance know the size of the spring. The boat is an hour and a half away, so I cannot remove it.

Sorry CC2MC - I did it a 2 seasons ago. I also had to clip the spring to size. I took the remaining bits of spring to the store and rummaged thru the spring boxes till I found something I believed was the right diameter and strength.

I also was able to repair my boat buddy in the same manner..

When I took my throttle assembly apart last year, I couldn't believe how much sand was inside with what appeared to be vintage 1977 grease. Spent some time cleaning it and adding a reasonable amount of grease and it works great. Didn't even need to change the spring. Be careful when you take it apart.....the check ball can go for a ride.

A 6-gauge set similar to my boat is only about $160. I think this has a speedo compatible with pitots; mine needs one compatible with a paddlewheel. Yours probably needs a set with two speedo gauges.

When i had multiple guage failure this was the cure. Pull the pitot tube lines off the box or open it to see if water got inside.

The fuel, oil pressure, and rpm gauge basically do nothing, and the blower and bilge do not work at all either. We are basically looking to replace all of the gauges, blower, and bilge pump and I was wondering where the best place to order all of the parts is?? Have never bought parts for it... Once I replace everything I'll check out all of the wiring and see why nothing is working. Thank you!!
