Re: Stewart Warner Ammeter Gauge

Unless your ammeters were upgraded or rewired at some point, the original set up didn't have shunts. It was a pass through directly from the alternator output. Below is a link to a DC schematic for your vintage from the "manuals" list on the site. Doesn't solve your problem, but hope that ...

Re: Remote starting from Bridge

CharlieO, The wiring explanation and diagram are for the alarm switches only. The upper helm start and stop buttons are simply wired parallel to the lower helm start and stop buttons. If they were factory, they would have worked at some point. That they are buttons suggests that you have stop soleno...

Re: Remote starting from Bridge

Your existing main alarm switch at the lower helm will have two connection points. The new single pole/double throw (SPDT or On-ON) toggle switches at each helm station have 3 connection points, usually in a line. One of the existing switch wires gets connected to the center (called "common&quo...

Re: Where is the likely place for fuel leaks?

Look close at the return lines. If it was the tank, it would leak all the time, not just underway.

Re: Remote starting from Bridge

It's not factory, but I took out the lower helm master switches and installed SPDT (on-on) switches upper and lower instead. You'll need three wires (per engine) from the lower helm to the upper helm switch locations to hook them together, wired just like house 3-way circuits that FrugalWife mention...

Re: copper tube

The fixed window drains are for interior condensation. Look between the lower teak trim and the glass, all the way aft in the channel. The hole is probably plugged with stuff so you can't see it easily. Try running a small screwdriver through from the outside. If the tube came out easily, then water...

Re: Cost of Diesel

One thing to think about is trim. Having the fuel aft will tend to lift the bow a bit, which may not be a bad thing at all depending how she currently sits on her lines. Maybe try using your aft tanks only for a while and see how she rides. Loosing the capacity sure does not seem to be a problem. St...
