  • Dear Community Members,

    Over the last two years, there have been updates to the environment that have introduced challenges in usability, performance, and security. Efforts to improve the technology, user interface and site performance have revealed weaknesses in the platform and outdated software our site uses. This has made it increasingly difficult and frustrating to support and upgrade to more modern reliable standards that users deserve. This is not the experience we want for the members of this community.

    Members want a fast site that performs well across all devices, to be able to find relevant and interesting content, and easily share through text, images, video, and messaging on a secure platform. Our goal is to provide this user experience to all members. We will be updating to a new platform to better meet the needs of this community and allow us to provide support more efficiently. Our focus is to create a sustainable platform that performs well and loads faster on all devices while offering seamless ways to search and connect. Technology is constantly innovating - by creating an environment that we control we can maintain the site with more frequent improvements and maintenance updates.

    Although change can be difficult, we are here to support you through the process. We make every effort to review existing settings and make the changes needed so the migration goes smoothly. If you notice something doesn’t seem correct once the site goes live, don’t panic! We’ll have a dedicated person monitoring as the site goes live to answer any questions and provide support through this change. What’s next?

    When will this be happening? The plan is to put our current forums into maintenance mode (off line) at around 9am MST on 9/30/2020! The whole transition should take 24-36 hours. We recognize the user experience is slow and there are bugs from the outdated software. The sooner we can change that the better we can make the experience for you. You’ll start to see activity related to cleanup in preparation for migration very shortly. We will post an announcement to the community prior to starting the actual data migration.

    We appreciate each member’s contribution to this community and look forward to an improved experience for you all.

  • looking for 4.3l wiring diagram, 1997 gl motor.

    picked up a real project boat, motor out and in pieces. wires cut, and replacement wires run outside of the harness. i got the engine together & installed & remarkable cranking from the key but no spark & no fuel pump. 1 wire in question is a purple one from the coil area. the coil wires are cut & spliced and there is no oil pressure switch/wiring so i know that is 1 red flag. so ,if anyone has a wiring diagram i can view, id appreciate it

    I could be wrong but I have a 1998 4.3 GL and I think the purple wire is the the hot lead from the ignition switch that powers the ignition coil. I also think it enables the fuel pump relay to operate also. When the engine is cranking, the starter provides the power to the fuel pump. When the engine starts, the alternator is the fuel pump power supply. I think if you trace the purple wire from the ignition switch, it first goes to the emergency kill switch, then to the fuse panel. Dave-R
