View the latest post fuel pump not getting fuel or fire to carburetor

I have a 1989 Wellcraft Marine 170 Classic, just bought it, has a Mercruiser fuel pump (3.0L 4cy) and it won't turn over all the way, seems the fuel pump isn't getting fuel or fire to the carburetor. This is my first boat, so everything is new, just wondering if there were any other options besides starting with replacing the fuel pump, don't know if it's bad or not. Any help would be great!

View the latest post Attachment(s) Bottom Machine not running at speed

Hey there guys,

This is my first post here...but I have been a behind the scenes reader for about a year now.

I'm stumped and thought y'all might have some experience with this as alot of us run a similar hull. I have a Wellcraft 252 fisherman and put in a B175M thru-hull ducer in it. She reads very well at slow speeds...anything under 14mph or probably less. But as soon as I speed her up passed that or jump on plane she completely stops reading. All I get is lines and color all over the place.

I'm looking for a solution to fix this issue. Any help or advice would mean alot as getting her up and running for the past year has been a work in progress but she is good to go now except for this problem.

Thank you!

View the latest post Simple project

Here's a simple project to bring your old Wellcraft into the 21st century and it only takes an hour. Replace that rusty old cigarette lighter/chart light with a USB charger plug in. If you have the room, get the double kind, one 12v plug and one USB plug. Otherwise get a single 12v plug and a USB insert.

View the latest post NMEA ADAPTERS FOR 1994 MERC O/B?

I've got 1994 mercury 225 XL saltwater outboards on my boat. Talked with the factory and the don't have anything that will allow them to communicate/interface via an NMEA 2000 connector. My OEM gauges are shot, and I'm upgrading the electronics (Radar, GPS, MFD, etc) so am wondering if there's any aftermarket connector adapter that would work? Thanks!

View the latest post MANUALS FOR '94 SCARAB 34 SUPER SPORT

The Wellcraft website doesn't have the '94 manuals. Called them and no luck. Does anyone know where I can get the owner's manuals, shop manuals, wiring diagrams, etc. for my boat?

View the latest post HELLO FROM THE DESERT

I live in Arizona, plenty of beach front, not a whole lot of ocean.

My son and I just picked up a '94 Scarab 34 super sport. Needs a little mechanical and electrical work and TLC. While we've owned boats before this one is by far the biggest and baddest. I already have a ton of questions as to where the best places are to get parts and information, so I will be posting in the appropriate forums for help. Looking forward to meeting you all.

View the latest post What a difference new engines make 94 Martinique 3200

two brand new engines make....holy cow and such!!!
So our 94 Wellcraft martinique 3200 - we got her for a song but have always struggled with the engines - they turned over every time- she always got us where we wanted to go but she never had the power - honestly by the tail end of last year we struggled to hold 3500 RPMs wide open with the twin Crusader 350XLs..

We had multiple marina mechanics and friends look at it and work on it -hubby is quite talented too... yes we tried a host of things - would really rather not relive them, and she was just slowly getting worse. So at the end of season - husband was just DONE with worrying and said we were going to upgrade... boat shopping ensued - found a couple of likely prospects and then - life happened and less money became a factor. So we had to go with plan B. Repower a 24 year old boat. We looked at long blocking and new engines. We found a local marine mechanic with new old stock on Mercruiser 350 with carburetors. WORTH EVERY PENNY and 60K cheaper then the boat we were looking at.

HOLY COW. Damn. WOW and OMG. You don't know what you don't know and we DID NOT KNOW that this boat could be so freaking fast and sassy!!! or that she could be (dare i say - nimble)

We finally cleaned and painted her bottom put in all new gauges ( ha! zero hours was a treat) - are currently working on getting the rear upholstery redone and THANK GOD ITS BOATING SEASON!!!!!

there is no point to this other than my excitement and sheer joy. Happy boating to all and to all sunny days!!!
