I would wait for summer, and then block it in place with wooden props internally to force the warm plastic into the correct form. Then see how that works.

This one?

RT is normally reserved for transmitting, this is a receiver. Or is it linked to a two way transceiver and automatically cuts out music for telegraphy transmissions coming in?

I can't find the manual for it. The reviews at the lower part of the page suggest it is a bargain basement unit. I have a Jenson :>)

the #1 failures all all things with batteries are.....
1: battery bad.
2: battery bad.

not only that, but a bad battery makes the charger lie..
do you understand why, that is easy an old battery may still work some, and have 1/10 capacity left, but the charger does not know that, so lies to you. (only load testing proves any of that)

My E4RCCS 1988 outboard has a diagram at the fuel inlet that says 100:1 fuel mixture

If its under warranty, send it back. They will say you grounded it or hit log. If not, buy a new one. You can't fix them.

It is an entry level fish finder. It doesn't have GPS tracking which is used these days to mark distance traveled against time to display the speed. 'Old fish finders had a wheel on the transducer (yours doesn't), and nothing in the manual leads me to believe that your unit displays speed. The only measure of speed is in relation to how fast the chart speed is. I am a Humminbird person, but that is what I see after studying the unit.

If you plan to sell the simrad CR44. Im willing to buy it. Thanks

Simrad Boating | Answered on Jan 29, 2020

I have seen the threaded terminals on batteries where the threads do not go all the way down the terminals far enough to actually provide enough threads to tighten down wires!...whew..
Make sure the charger wires terminals are actually crimped on the wire and not the insulation..seen that too.

Hello. You have two springs in carburetor and one in Magneto roto. No spark I pick the Magneto. For complete brake down illustration I suggest Sears parts on the web. Good luck & happy fishing.

Boating | Answered on Jan 22, 2020

I don't know if this will be helpful, but I would check the compression and see if the rings are holding compression. If they are, that would indicate the cylinder should be drawing air in through the carb. If there is poor compression in the cylinder in question, that could mean that cylinder is not drawing in the air through the carb.

This is probably the best route to take. Get the Service Manual if you intend to do your own servicing.

This shows wiring thumbnails but don't lead the the wiring diagram
