Main Message Board / fuel shutoff sticking
« on: June 18, 2017, 01:01:41 PM »
I have a 1986 with an M-25 engine. When I pull the fuel shutoff the engine stops . Then I push it back down the return lever on the engine stays in the off position I just move it back with my finger so it will start. I put a extra stop on the cable to push it back down no help. Is there some kind of spring return I am not seeing. Charlie

Main Message Board / roller furler failure
« on: June 26, 2011, 05:30:41 PM »
Had a problem with furling jib would not come out. I have a 1986 pro furl. Got back to  the dock furler would not turn.  Took the jib off every thing check out OK.  Put the jib back on every thing is OK now. I think maybe the halyard shackle got caught on the furling foil. Has any one had a problem with the furler. Charlie
