Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone else’s topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when it’s posted at the end of someone else’s topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • ‘71 Johnson 60 HP any one installed a “113-7123 - Amplifier, Battery Power Pack“

    I have a 1971 johnson 60 HP.... very new to boating. Not a mechanic. I have called 8 places and they won’t work on the Motor as it’s “to old”.
    So the Power pack went back. I got the CDI version of it. But it also came with a coil (?).... does any one have a photo that you can share of your power pack??? Is the blue or red wire suppose to go to this coil? I can’t find any help. Anything be great!!

    What, no instructions with it? CDI changed several things from the original. Original setup had blue wire going to coil. I can't answer on other issues. Might have to call CDI

    I assume you properly diagnosed the system before buying a new amplifier.

    Here is the original diagram

      My brother had said it was the part under the fly wheel. But poking around the motor I saw the 3 wires were all bare coming out of the pack. 1 wire broke and fell apart. So I knew the power pack is the 1st major issue. All I get from CDI was have a mechanic install it. I just found a paper on their website that tells you what each wire kind of is... sounds like blue goes to the new coil pack... thanks for the image!
      The paper that came with the device is confusing as there are 2 parts and both say CDI on them. This photo helps a lot!! Thank you.
