Directional indicator misaligned How do I fix

On the head of the unit (where the direction indicator is) push down and turn the round plastic plate (this plate has the direction indicator on it) clockwise until the direction indicator mark is in line with the alignment bar on the non-moveable part on the head. You will hear several "clicks" and this means that the indicator plate is clicking around to the proper directional alignment with the motor in the water. If it is still not functioning then, Take the head apart...just 3 or 4 screws up from the bottom. The direction arrow is "driven by a plastic gear that may have a "C" type ring holding the arrow and the gear together. The arrow sits on top of the gear with knurled splines. If either one is stripped or broken you'll have to purchase a new head housing.
Depending on the year some of these are as simple as lifting up on the arrow and turning it to the direction you need to line up with the motor. These simply ratchet around the internal gears but I would recommend taking the three machine screws out from the bottom of the head, lift the cover off, align the arrow with the lower unit and reassemble. Check to see if the six sides of the plastic drive shaft below the directional arrow or the drive gear that the drive shaft sits down into are worn. These are replaceable parts and the problem will continue to get worse if they are just forced back into the proper direction. For warranty issues and techincal support I will include the motor guide websit link for your convience. If there is something els I can hel- you with please feel free to ask and thanks for using Fix ya and I hope this problem is solved. http://www.motorguide.com//
Thanks

Does a 1979 Mercury 40 HP 2 Stroke have a fuse in it? If so, where is it located?

Does it turn over? But won't start? Have you checked the spark? My thought, if it turns over it's not a fuse. See if you have a spark at the plugs, YouTube will show you how. If spark! Next is fuel. If no spark, Probably blown ignition module, not fuse.

1984 Johnson 50 horse outboard runs great for an hour or two then will not run to make it back to the dock ???

Service the carburetor. Check cooling system. it may clogged. Run it in a tub and monitor heat buildup. When it stops running, do you have ignition spark? If no then the ignition coil maybe shorted when hot or it may have moved due to untightened screws.

Raymarine c120 classic intermittent no data source

"Finally convinced him that **your** specs requiring the 4c cable at those lengths was correct" You know we are Fixya and not Raymarine? We just have a Raymarine category for handy filing of questions and answers. This question needs a factory service department technician on the phone. As a boat owner, who doesn't have radar, and reading your post carefully, I would suggest the connection at the top of the mast. It is far more hostile up there, and it has been up there a long time.
