    You have helped me before. Hopefully you can do it again. I bought a new to me 87 supra. PCM. Starter is turning over very slowly. New battery, cable connections, I cleaned all the connections. It is original starter. Boat only has 302 hours on it and it's VERY clean. The last owner had the small battery connections coming from the cables to the battery(trolling motor), they were also melted off and he replaced with replacment connections. So, it's been hot before (battery)
    Do you think new starter is next ?
    Is rebuilding the starter just as good. Is there anything else to check ?
    Thank you.

    I am planning on hooking the hull on my 2001 prostar 209. I have contacted Houston Master Craft and the drawing I got from them is no help at all. It had no dimensions on it! It looked like they wrote it on a napkin while drinking at the bar. I have a reputable fiberglass company here in Houston call Northwest Fiberglass to do the work. However I need the dimensions for them to be able to do the work. If you can help me in anyway it is much appreciated.

    Jim, you seem to be one of the more knowlegable trouble shooters for electrical issues on this forum. I posted an issue yesterday titled Gauges Problems (yeah I know bad choice of title to get attention). I was hoping you could take a look and reply if you have any thoughts on what the issue might be. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have a waterpump seal leaking on my 98 w/LT1. From the looks of it, the engine circulation pump is camshaft driven?
    What's the best way to replace that seal. Can it be done by removing the front watrepump cover, or do i have to take off the whole pump and reseal that way?

    That's possible but I would still like you to try running a ground from the splice to the battery negative. As I posted, they had a bulletin for these and that was the fix at the time. If that doesn't fix it, then I would look at a new MDC box. Also, look at the terminals on the plug and if the box opens, look inside- if the speedos have pitot tubes instead of a paddlewheel, water can get inside if you have hard freezes in winter and the tubes aren't cleared out when winterizing.

    Hi Jim, I've sent you a couple of replys but get an error message so not sure if they are making it to you. The moderator has moved the thread to engines/drive trains under maintenance, thanks for any assistance.

    Hi Jim, I'm a newbie but I have a post in the general discussion about a 1999 x-star with a hot start problem. Your responses to other posts have been very helpful and gotten me as far as the post indicates but I could use a little direction. Any assistance would be appreciated...thanks
