Replaced my 200 HPDI's with drive by wire Suzuki 200AP's (inline-4). I now have 85 hours on them. I'm impressed with their performance and improvement in fuel mileage (like 10-15% better). Time will...

IMHO, I've run both and I won't go back to mechanical controls. MC's require manual sync'g if you care about that, are prone to shift/throttle cable failure after several years of use - which mine...

I used to run a pair of 2002 200 HPDIs and I've rebuilt them twice. Earlier in 2019 I just couldn't get one engine to idle and the cylinder pressures were down to 90 psi despite religious use of...

Use them all the time. Quality has been good enough for me over the years and they're standing up to the test of time.

If you're going to do this, I'd recommend that you use duplex (2) wire that is tinned for marine use. Be sure to use heat-shrink connectors and do it right the first time to keep from having to come...

Not that this helps, but I had a similar problem with my port 200 Suzuki. After a lot of fussing around, we changed the fuel line between the water separator and fuel tank. It turns out that the fuel...

One lesson I learned a long time ago is that *all* non-stainless brakes will rust out and cause problems. I started out with regular steel brakes and after everything was said and done, I should have...

Stainless steel actually needs to be open to air in order for the chromium oxide to form correctly and apparently this happens very quickly. But in the past I've waxed my SST and it never hurt...

This doesn't directly answer your question, but thought I'd offer up what I did in this situation.

I replaced my POS Tie-downs with all SST Kodiaks about a month ago. Yes, it was expensive and I...

Well, there's a couple of things I want to comment on that may be related.

Hi Everyone,

It's been a long time since I've been on THT since I've been out in the field. Plus I couldn't figure out how to list posts since my lost logon... but I digress.

Re: Amps

Most multimeters (even the $10 ones at Harbor Freight) can do amperage, but usually only up to 10A. The easiest way to answer your question is to measure the amps directly and write these down in a...

Re: Fridge works on AC but not DC?

I think the point of confusion of a light vs a multimeter is this. You can read voltage on a power feed, but this doesn't tell you about impedance. Voltage yes, but possibly no amperage. This is why...

RE: dvi cable terminations

DVI cables are a lot more tolerant of cable/connection quality than the older analog (e.g. DB15) styles so in your case, you can probably give it a go and see how it works out. Personally,...

RE: Fridge works on AC but not DC?

Probably the controller board. The compressor is more than likely AC (b/c the true DC flavors are more expensive) and if it runs off of AC, but not DC - sounds to me the inverter portion of the board...

RE: current draw of computer monitors??? which are lowest?

I'm assuming you're considering LCD's. Tube styles are horrendously inefficient. I think you can look up the wattage draw for about any model you're considering and work from there. There are even a...

RE: Yamaha Ring Free Question

I've heard both ways that Chevron Techron isn't exactly the same as Ring Free (similar, but different). If so, is the Techron applied at the same concentration as Ring Free (i.e. 1oz/10g)?

I have this setup, primarily for running long distances offshore where weather becomes more of a concern. If you're buying it for SST, the resolution is coarse. I've used it to run to temperature...
