new 276 owner with lots of questions!!!!
nosvet posted a topic in Technical DiscussionHello everyone, We just purchased a 1995 276 and its in need of some TLC and some replacement items and I'm hoping that the mass of experience here will be able to help us. The boat's generator is missing and I'm wondering what the original equipment consisted of and what everyone is currently doing for replacement units. Also, the camper top and hardware is missing and we'd like to get a new camper cover made but we really do not know how much is missing or needed. Currently, it has a cockpit Bimini, approx 3 pieces of old yellowed izing glass, and a cockpit type cover that snaps on at the windshield and goes around the edges of the boat with tent pole in the center to stop pooling water. And finally, what gps units will fit into the factory bezel to the left of the helm? although that seems awkward to see its better than the small unit currently screwed to the top of the dash that I can't read due to sun glare. What radar setup original came with these boats of this year and where would it have been mounted. I want to try ans bring it back to original configurations. Thanks in advance for your patience and assistance we look forward to enjoying our 276!!! Thanks Chris
Generator issues question
patrinif posted a topic in Technical DiscussionHi guys, i own 2008 270cr with a westerbeke 60hz, 3.0 bpmg generator raw water cooled, the issue i'm having is that it runs for 20 min (cold start, and with or without load) then shuts down, afterwards it maybe runs from 30 sec - 1 min. i can put my hand on the top of it and leave it there comfortably for about 15 sec. The troubleshooting i've tried so far from the techical manual are:I have changed the oil pressure switch, exhaust temp switch, raw water pump impelle (although when the gen is on it is picking up water and throwing it overboard as normal), fuel filter, sparkplugs, oil filter and oil. I also checked the thermostat (it opens), and the oil pressure readings. The boat fuel tank is 3/4 full (i only use non-ethanol gas with valvetech in it). Could not check the fuel pressure (not sure how on this gen, but I do have a fuel pressure test gauge) and the overspeed switch also because I don’t know how as well. One thing I did notice when I was changing the impeller was the magnetic pick up was loose, i tightned back in but i know that is finely adjusted. A little about the boat i bought it used the generator had ~50 hrs in it, now it has 71 hrs. i use it in brackish/salt water. if anyone has any ideas that can help me i would appreciate it. thanks everyone Sincerely Francesco
