SOURCE: beeping sound from console when at wide open throttle

temp sensor or oil sensor, on that motor, thats gonna be the only 2 options for an alarm. You might need a new water pump impeller or clean the intake out. You get grass and sand etc in there and it will restrict water flow

SOURCE: i have a 06 2001 century center console. how long

Have a look along the cable housing.At either end it will have some letters and numbers on it.Different makes have different ways of sorting these numbers.The common thing is it will have a length on it.If its hard to work out,just write down the entire sequence and the parts shop will be able to give you the correct length of cable.Hope this helps

SOURCE: How to install a fire extinguisher on side of

Use a pencil to mark the holes for the extinguisher mounting bracket. After marking the holes,apply smal pieces of masking tape over the holes. This will prevent the Gel coat from chipping while drilling the holes for mounting the screws. If the side of the compartment is thick enough, you can use self taping screws. If there is access to the other side thru an access port, you can use machine screws and lock nuts to secure it. Keep in mind that you will want to use a 316 stainless steel fastener, and also apply a marine silicone in the holes before screwing the fasteners in place. 18-8 stainless will corrode/rust overtime, especially in a saltwater environment.

Testimonial: "This information was very helpful. Hate to pay someone to mount two screws. The masking tape was a very important step that I would have missed. Thanks a lot! "

I went to Goodyear to get an ailment for my s10 truck they did it and when I was driving I notice that that steering wheel wasn't straight so I went back to get it fix and they told me the gea


They should center the steering wheel and then do the alignment. This insures that the steering wheel is in the correct orientation. Sounds like they goofed up and don't want to fix it.

How do you take the steering wheel off of a 1986 chevrolet c10


1. Turn the steering wheel from side to side until it locks into place. This will make the process a bit easier, as the wheel won't be turning as you work.

  • 2 Remove the horn button in the center of the steering wheel by pulling it off towards you. This will expose the steering wheel nut at the center.

  • 3 Unbolt the center bolt from the steering wheel, using the 1/2-inch ratchet, extension and socket. This might free the steering wheel right away, but most likely you'll have to proceed to the next step.

  • 4 Position the steering wheel puller on the steering wheel such that the center bolt on the puller is on the center shaft of the wheel. Then thread in the bolts supplied with the puller into the two threaded holes on either side of the center shaft on the wheel.

  • 5 Tighten down the center bolt on the steering wheel puller using the 1/2-inch ratchet and socket until the steering wheel pops free. Then remove the steering wheel puller from the steering wheel.

    Stearing on my 4yo 60hp mercury outboard will not budge


    if you have "rotary" or "rack and pinion" steering. what your dealing with is rust. 2 things you can do to test the steering system. (1) tilt engine all the way down using the trim an tilt system. On the engine, you will see a steering rod that is parallel to the transom. One side of the rod is connected to the engine(ignore that connection), the other side curves down and connects to the steering cable. Disconnect steering rod from cable by unscrewing the nut counter clockwise. Once you disconnect the steering rod from cable. Push steering rod forward towards bow swinging it out of the way. Engine is now free from boat steering system. “Testing the engine steering tube“ all you have to do is manually turn the engine port and starboard using your hands. If your able to turn engine, the problem is the boat steering system. which you can fix. If you can' turn the engine then the job will require the engine to be removed from boat and transom bracket rebuilt. Take it to a repair shop.(2) with the engine still disconnected from the boat steering system. Get in the boat and turn the steering wheel. A good steering system you should be able to turn the wheel with just a finger. If wheel does not turn, you have one of two problems. Bad cable or bad steering helm. I always tell my customer to change both as a kit as a safety issue. if you are trying to save money. pull cable from helm, turn wheel if it turns easy replace cable (keep cable don't throw it away you have to get it matched) if wheel still stuck replace helm.

    Can not remove the plate the steering weel sits on


    Get under the dash and look at the back. You will see a big nut on the rotary part where the cable feeds into the steering system. Loosen that nut all the way. With the nut loose you can turn your steering wheel until the cable comes out. Then you can remove the steering wheel and the three bolts holding it on.
