    Ingnition Starter Help-gctid348441

    Hello, I recently purchased my 1984 bayliner Ciera. The guy I bought it from was in the process of replacing the ingnition swith so in the mean time he had a toggle switch on the boat to start it. The toggle seems to be pretty testy and takes a few tries to get the boat started. The other day I was coming back from getting gas and the boat just cut off. I tried starting it a few times and it wouldn't turn over, although, it sounded like it was almost there. I notice a little smoke from the starter where the toggle switch wires connect to the starter. Any suggestions on what could be wrong?

    If the starter motor is an OEM motor, recycle it, and replace it with a HTGR/PMGR motor from Richard at Seamanufacturing out of Florida.

    Tell him that you want a Volvo Penta SBC 153 tooth flywheel starter motor with all steel reduction gears.

    This is the straight across bolt pattern motor.

    Get the mounting bolts with it, as the OEM will not be the correct length.

    Richard will fix you up.

    Pull your engine harness/hull harness interface connection apart.

    It will be a white connector at your transom and may be hidden underneath a black plastic boot.

    Spray the terminals with a corrosion blocker.

    Put it back together, then pull it apart again, and repeat this several times.
