That's already a replacement, and not the one that came with the boat.
Would you be able to explain how to test it, either describe it in detail or attach a sketch? I would hate to change it if I didn't need to.

Would you know why in "mtajpa" thread:

the old seader (like mine) does not measure correctly but the new one measures correctly, is it a different style, electronic compaired to mechanical slide?

Thanks, Steve

Your MC will be a world of difference from your old boat. My guess is you'll wonder why you didn't make the move years ago!
Thank you for the compliment!! I guess I didn't know better with the Bayliner. I got an awesome deal on it and it has been a good boat but the quality of the MC is so much better!!

BTW, here's another project I've been working on for over 3 years, a 1972 Camaro.


but for some reason I keep getting sidetracked with other projects.

I had a friend at work strip and powder coat the ski platform brackets for me, I gave him $25 to do it. I think they came out good.





From the factory what held the teak platform "L" bracket down in the bracket that bolts to the boat? When I bought the boat it just had a couple of steel cotter pins in the holes at the bottom of the brackets.

I will step out of this conversation now; his write-up is authoritative and excellent. Apparently that style is not electronic like I thought, and yours definitely looks like it needs replacement. BTW, I ended up with a replacement that looks exactly like the new one he got, from WEMA. I'm quite satisfied with it.

Thanks, Steve
Does anyone know what this is?

Thanks, Steve

Sorry Steve, it doesn't look familiar.

Looks like it might be a relay?

Should there be a 160 degree t-stat in here? When I pulled it apart there was nothing there?



I found the 140 degree one but not the 160. Is it missing or am I looking in the wrong spot?

Thanks, Steve

Normally with a relay, you'd need at least three connectors on the bottom - one for +12 to activate the relay (grounded through the case), and a guzinta and guzouta terminal. With only two terminals on this one, I'm at a loss - perhaps a circuit breaker (although it appears to be labeled with "12 v", not a current rating), perhaps something else. Really hard to tell.
