Exclamation Urgent Requirement - Solinoid

Hi,

Today the Solenoid of one of the engines on the Bladerunner decided to screw itself. Now I need badly to get a replacement solenoid....

The engine is a 300 Promax.

Anything that can help will be much appreciated!!!

Any mercury starter selonoid will do, may not have the same fixing pattern but one from an inboard engine will do the job.

You could even use one from a offshore trim pump.

Yep as above Marc, there exactly the same a the xr2,2.5 efi etc starter, and the heavy duty trim pump ones,
About 50 quid from merc but theres a place by lil daves and apperently you can get them for about 12 quid new and there identical!

let me know if you want me to investigate for you.

OK,

Aparently the replacement solenoid also 'does not work'.

So I am moving on to an electrical issue: Anyone know someone GOOD who is actually in the country at the moment??


Looks like the feed is not getting through to the engine from the switch on the one side...

Is the main isolator ok. Sometimes they breakdown inside and wont handle the current req for starting.

when you turn the ignition on does it beep and have you got power at the gauges?,
Check the start feed from the ignition,
put 1 terminal of a 12v bulb/buzzer to the (i think, havent looked in ages(the other wire is ground)) yellow+red wire and ground the other pole of the bulb to ground, then turn the key fully round, where it would be to start the engine, and see if your light comes on,
if not then your looms fkked, easiest and cheapest way would be to run a wire from the solenoid where the yellow/red wire is, to the dash of the boat, then have a button and a live from the purple wire of the ignition, this way the engine can only be turnd over when the ignition is on, it will also mean youve got a cool push button start engine

Ok, I can check that... What is it? Is it the red kill switch or something in the engine?

OK,

RHS key creates a loud BEEEEEEEP when you turn the key. The RHS fuel pump runs from the front tank to the rear tank.

LHS key does not create a loud beep, or any beep. The LHS fuel pump does however run to pump fuel the the rear tank...
