Where is the crank sensor you speak of?

V drive. Go down from water pump to bottom of block. Just to the starboard side of crankshaft pulley. There are two of them.

that's awesome LaRue, it's a bad feeling when you put the boat in and nothing. even better though that you didn't mess anything up pulling into the car wash. you should have gotten a lottery ticket or two...

We are headed for Lake Shasta for a week this coming Saturday. I knew I would be due for an oil change around mid vacation so I went ahead and changed it this morning.

Eventually my son had to hold door up so I could back out. Amazingly no damage done.

Floating boat off trailer. Turn key. Engine turns over but will not start. First time this has happened since I bought it 5 years ago.

Check kill switch. Still nothing. Scratch head. Feeling embarrassed. Call local mechanic. He says he doesn't work on inboards. Mechanic who does is out until Monday.

Call Midwest Mastercraft. No mechanics in this late on Saturday. Guy working helps me as best he can.

Call another Mastercraft dealer. He helps me confirm fuel pump is working and kill switch it not the problem. Boat still won't start. I've been by loading ramp for 45 min.

I am now that guy.

Sick to my stomach I am resigning to the idea of pulling boat out and leaving on trailer until someone can fix issue...likely 2-3 days

Guy staying at resort comes down and starts asking questions. Indicates he is a mechanic.

After about 15 minutes of asking questions and looking around engine he suggests maybe the crank sensor is the culprit. Sure enough...it had worked loose. I suspect I bumped it a couple days earlier when I lubed steering cable.

Sweetest sound I heard all day was that engine start to rumble. Man, was I thankful!!!

He put his boat in a short time later. Evidently angels drive Glastrons.

What a day.
Outstanding that you got it working... I was doing some testing when I bought a backup fuel pump and some inspection... turned off fuel valve and forgot to turn it back on. When to the boat ramp and started motor and it died. Would not restart... Finally remembered what is was 3 hours later... luckily that day had friends boat to go out on...

lifted the floor board and noticed the fuel line hose clamps had rusted away. Replaced them with new. Never know what you will find in the bildge.

Had to run to the lake this morning. I looked at her on the lift and wished I could take her out...
