View the latest post Generator not firing

I have a Westerbeke 6.5 generator that will not start. It will turn over but not firing. I have done all the test that I have found on line for the coil and the spark assist. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

View the latest post Any general thoughts on this as a first boat?

Fella said he'll trade me for my firearm: I haven't seen the boat yet..
Anything of note to point out with this particular vintage craft?
I realize of course, no one is in front of the machine, so comments are taken as such...
This would be my first boat: and I'm not shy about tearing into things to do repairs etc...
Seller says motor is: "40 horse Johnson"
I asked about any other repairs needed, aside from what the ad says, and seller says: "Correct, i had it out at the beginning of summer and it ran great but hasn't been run since been to busy with work"
The ad states:
"I have a 1985 Thundercraft Tri Hull the motor just got serviced over the winter it runs good just need the
driver and passenger seats replaced and a little reupulstry but floats and runs mins and just needs a hose
clamp for the gas line i just dont have time to use it and have my eye on
something else."


appreciate it fellas,

View the latest post 2003 330 Coastal - Seacock Locations?

Can someone please tell me where I should find the various sea cocks?
The previous owner didn't know, and I cannot find it in the Owner's Manual.
I searched the web and this site, to no avail...

Thank you.

View the latest post Can you identify this engine?

This is a boat I'm considering taking on as a project(my first...) and I appeal to the vast knowledge here...
Owner says:
"I have a 18.5ft 1987 Wellcraft with an open bow. It was a project boat that I dont have time for anymore. Made some progress over the years. I used to wakeboat on it as is until the alternator died on me.

I had it serviced last summer with Mansons Marine to try and fix the problem. They said there is an alternator kit that could be installed but it was about $700 and it would also need a new trim pump.

I'm wondering what engine this is, as I see there are several that were offered for this year boat: I'm actually not even sure what the model is yet...
I might go look at it tonight

Thanks fellas,
