  2. I’m looking at purchasing a 2006 21 LSV Sunscape with a little over 300 hours on it. The only thing that jumped out at me during the initial inspection was the deeper cracks in the gelcoat around the prop shaft support plate. Images in the below links. As I assume this is a high stress area - should I be concerned or are these typical gel coat spider cracks? https://ibb.co/gwLcSNF https://ibb.co/SsHfpCV https://ibb.co/yF730s0 https://ibb.co/MMS5krw
  3. If switching the relay does not help, try tapping the starter with a hammer while someone holds key in start position. If it goes, ge a new starter.

    Frozen engine ?

    Could it have froze over the winter? Cracked the block and or heads then it would have taken a few minutes for the engine to get warm enough for the crack to separate and let the water and oil to flow out.
  5. yes, starter solenoid gets juice from that starter relay. it will have yellow wires in the relay socket. there should be two other relays (ign and fuel pump) in the same location. all 3 relays are alike. swap one of the other relays into the socket w the yellow wires and see if that changes the situation. change == bad starter relay. no change MAY indicate a bad starter or solenoid (if battery is healthy and charged).
  6. I really appreciate everyone’s advice on here if your ever in central Florida give me a call. Pulled people all day on it had a blast. But I ran some more carb cleaner through it yesterday and checked the carb real good looks fine and is running better now. Had to change all my spark plugs because i sprayed a bunch of carb cleaner in there when the motor was off like a dumbass, and now it’s running like a champ. But taking like three cranks to fire up and have to have it in neutral wide open in reverse and once it fires up runs great. What could be causing this issue? I was thinking spark plug
  7. I took my 2013 vlx 21 to get serviced last week and took the boat out yesterday. Turns out they somehow managed to reset my passcode on the bottom screen so I can no longer start and stop the engine through the screen. Also when I got it back the speakers no longer work. The head unit and amp seem to be getting no power at all.
  8. I have a 2013 vlx 21 and previously couldn’t get the wedge to do anything then I found a fuse that goes to it, I replaced it and it automatically put the wedge all the way down. Now I can’t get it to come back up

    Frozen engine ?

    Would that happen even if the engine was running fine and it never overheated ?
  13. Is there a start relay mounted to the MEFI mounting box? When I turn the key I feel a relay trying to engage but nothing at the starter. 1996 Response LXI 320 HP 5.7 GM Indmar Monsoon TBI

    Boat Lift Capacity

    That's not a good idea. At minimum I'd want to be on a 5000# rated lift for that boat. Even that would be pushing it. My previous boat was 3500# dry and was pretty heavy for my 5000# lift.

    Frozen engine ?

    The only way I know of how to get water from a fake a Lake into your engine to mix with the oil would be a blown head gasket or a cracked head. Pull the plugs and see what comes out. If water pours out you have a blown head gasket or cracked head. But to get that much water oil in your engine bay I think you cracked your block. Look around for water oil coming out of a crack. your engine won't turn over due to hydrolock with water in the cylinder and liquids don't compress.

    Dock water pump

    If you are not going to have a tank you would not need a pressure switch. Switch is to turn off pump when pressure in tank builds to the target pressure. I am guessing most of these installs just have an on/off switch, just need to make sure it only runs when you are using water. If it sits running and not moving water the water in the pump will heat up and eventually cause damage.
  18. First start after the winter, changed my impeller, hooked up the “ fake a lake”, tuned the water on, started the engine, started, within 1 minute saw smoke, shut the engine off, saw that alternator pulley was frozen, got it loosen up, restarted the engine. 2 minutes later, engine oil and water everywhere in the engine bay. Shut the engine off and ended up pumping 10 gallons of water and oil from the engine, I think the water from the “fake a lake” was going directly in the engine. engine won’t turn over at all now. Can someone explain to me what happened ?

    Not cranking.

    When you say it won't crank, you mean it won't fire? Sounds like you're getting spark so it's a fuel issue. Can you put a pressure meter on the rail and check fuel pressure?
  20. Just as an FYI from my digging and finding. If you have a 2021 Monsoon LT4: Oil: Mobil 1 ESP 0W-40 (this is the only dexros Gen 2 oil I could find, not many places stock it, you will need to order it from somewhere) Oil Filter (shorter newer version) Wix 51212

    2022 Changes???

    That is everything I remember as well . Ordered a t250
  22. I'm pretty sure the 2006 power wedge should have 2 lenco actuators, but even if one goes bad they are normally replaced in pairs. They can be removed from the wedge bracket, disconnected from the harness, and tested individually using a fused jumper wire to power and a ground wire at the actuator connector.
  23. I would start by checking the wedge actuators. They can be removed from the wedge bracket, disconnected from the harness, and tested individually using a fused jumper wire to power and a ground wire at the actuator connector. Both actuators need to extend and retract at the same speed to prevent the Lenco box fuse from blowing. A faulty actuator should be replaced with a new pair. A damaged or improperly adjusted wedge bracket or a direct short to ground in the wiring harness or lenco box can also cause the fuse to blow.

    1990 Malibu F3 Trailer Input

    You are close enough to Tampa to pay a visit to Loadmaster with your old trailer in tow. I bought mine in the fall of 2019. I only waited a few weeks. In my opinion, you could order a new one and scab yours together while you wait. That's basically what I did while I toyed with the idea of just building my own trailer and taking it to Mobile to get galvanized. I'm really glad I went with the aluminum option instead.

    Boat Lift Capacity

    Can a shore master with a rated lift of 3800 lbs lift and hold a 2006 23vlx the specs are at 3900 lbs

    1990 Malibu F3 Trailer Input

    Thanks gary, I'm in Lecanto, My initial findings are dealers are telling me 2-3 month's out. So I hope to find a good used rig. But I keep turning over stones hoping to find something.~How long ago did you get yours & what was the waite time?
