    See if you feel suction on the inlet side before removing the pump.

    Diaphragm ripped or dryed out. That's my guess.

    No gas from the pump. Mechanical pump. Did I put it on wrong? Did it dry out sitting for years? Anything to do before taking it off? When I remove the hose at the carb and hold my finger over it while turning the engine over, I feel no pressure.

    Will do Steve. She is ready to be fired up. Long time coming. Hope it preforms as good as it looks.

    I would use a circuit breaker with 20% higher amperage than the max alternator output. Cars and boat use fusible links but airplanes use breakers, it must be due to cost and simplicity.

    Thank you, Steve and Chris. So just connect the alternator to the battery with a breaker and I'm good. Thought so but electrical terrifies me. Somehow, I lost a wire while the boat was laid up. Thanks again.

    Generally, the alternator output is wired directly to the battery (or battery stud on starter relay) I would consider adding a fuse or large circuit breaker that is a bit higher that the max alternator output current. I'm not a fan of fusible links, make it easy to check and replace or reset.

    Have 12v at starter but not at alternator. Yes testing to block. I don't see a fuse between starter and alternator but on my other boat there is one. Starter and alternator are not connected. Did I lose a wire somewhere? Just connect starter and alt?

    I'm suspecting a fuse link in the wire between the starter post and the alternator.
    Are you testing for 12 volts from starter post to engine block?
    Also test for 12 volts from alternator output post to engine block.

    Problem. No power at the ign switch. Nothing at the breaker. The ign and trim are wired separately from the rest of the panel. Everything else has power. Wire feeding ign has no power and goes through the harness to the alternator. I'm pretty good with fiberglass but I have no idea what to do here.

Looks like my 20'er has a hot wire coming off the starter to the alternator. Click image for larger version  Name:	26 breaker panel.jpg Views:	2 Size:	2.83 MB ID:	34392
