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 threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

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

3. Do not take over someone else’s thread (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 thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread 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 thread.

5. By starting your own thread, 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 thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread 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 thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread 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 thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

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

  • VRO pump & tachometer wire connection.

    I'm in the middle of a possible VRO problem related to over oiling and have not yet had time to run the necessary tests on my 150 Johnson 1995. I also have a non-working tachometer and have been reading posts related to the gray wire and the rectifer. Is it possible that these two problems are related? I believe the gray wire from the VRO connects directly to the gray rectifier wire and the purple wires connect the vro to the rectifier. Do the VRO wires have anything to do with regulating the oil and fuel or are they simply "sends" for warning horns?

    Re: VRO pump & tachometer wire connection.

    If your Tach does not work, make sure your charging system is working. Check the battery volts with the engine off and then again with it running. You should see an increase in voltage while running. If not, the rectifier is probably shot. The wiring has nothing to do with the VRO regulating oil or fuel supply to the motor. They are for warning horns only.
