Thanks Mark,

If this is the case, Is this an easy repair?

Would this cause the tacho to start to fail after the motor had been running for an hour or so? Would the tach not appreciate the drop in voltage?

Cheers Spritely

Appears that you may have blown the rectifier.

Hi Team,

I had to remove the starter motor from my V6 150 Merc Brown band to fix a slipping clutch pack on the bendix gear. This was no problem, however I stupidly did not connect the Earth lead from the battery to the starter motor. When I attempted to start it i heard a small 'crack sound'. Will I have burnt out a low tension wire somewhere on the outboard or loom?

Once I reconnected the main earth strap to the starter the boat turned over well and ran fine, however the voltage gauge is running under 12 volts and I don't think it's charging now.

Went out for a quick Ski morning yesterday and after about 1 hour of running the tacho started to fail !!

Any suggestions please?
Cheers Spritely

Looking for a Hydrodyne as a project if any one has one for sale or can track one down?
Could trade/swap deal with a Powercat

Thanks Neil,
I had a very good look on our Javelin list before I posted the pic, I'm quite confident this vessel a new "find".

130 Javelin hulls, who would have thought that many Javelins were built? I wonder what the total number of Savage branded hulls were "popped out" during all  those years of manufacture?

Best Wishes to you Guy ,Deb and all members  for 2018 .

The Javelin I thought was probably already on the list but was to 'lazy'  to check  Wink

Happy NY to you and Kerrie, Neil.
Thanks for your post, it was a good buy by someone. Wasn't me!

I've added the vessel to our Javelin count.
