1989 Mastercraft Tristar 220 454

Hi, I'm new to the Mastercraft owners world. I just bought a 89 220 Tristar ( project boat) and I have a few questions. I'm in Arkansas and would like to know if there are any local places to buy parts for my boat ( wiring harness ). With the boat turned off are you supposed to be able to put the boat in gear? Mine will not

Hi Coffems,,
Welcome to TT... My wife and I have owned a 1990 TriStar 220 since '96.. We love it!... I'm not sure about your issue with putting the boat "in gear" while turned off... I've honestly never tried it. The throttle lever will move but I'm not sure if the trans actually engages... I always pull out the trans engage button when starting anyway... As for parts it's pretty hard to beat skidim.com "Discount Inboard Marine". Those people are Fantastic! and have most of what you need.. If you have questions just call them.. VERY helpful and Knowledgeable... Show us some PICs of your new baby!! and good luck!

Transmission is hydraulic, so no it won't engage if the engine is turned off. You can hit up Deb on here for parts or like mentioned above discount Inboard marine is where 90% of my parts come from.

I've always wanted a TS 190 or 220. I have been seeing this boat behind a farmers house for a few years... asked him about it..... bought it. It is definitely a project boat has not been tagged for about 6 years. Critters have made a home in it. needs to be rewired so I'm looking for a wiring harness if anybody has one.

Here is your wiring harness. http://www.skidim.com/WIRE-HARNESS-E...info/R121025A/

If you need tires or a carb rebuild, I can take care of either for you.

Nice boat. I am really surprised skidim has that, and at a really reasonable cost!

I would call SKIDIM and ask them for their opinion on a wiring harness. The Ford harness might be compatible.
