New Navigation Light
« on: March 20, 2019, 09:46:19 AM »
I need to replace the navigation light with a new one. Would these Butt connectors do the trick? Also, the current holes are wider apart and a different size. Donít have the tool you used to melt the screw receptors into the boat, anything else I can use instead to melt them into the hull?

Soldering is the best way to go but the crimp connectors will work for that. As far as the mounting holes, just mark the new holes and use some stainless screws and nyloc nuts. 10-32 is what size I use for stuff like that.

Not bad for a novice electrician. Tom did all the wiring, I just connected the red/black wires to the new light. Might have to get myself one, canít have Orinoco out-shine me.
 Should let other boats see us from miles away, also light up the shore and path back to camp.
So bright that I still canít see the letters on the keyboard in order to type this post. Lol

The new light should work well for her. Weíve used them more than I anticipated. Mainly to stay out on the water to see sunsets and getting back late after fishing.
Now I need to tackle the ignition coil you sent? Might be a good time while I have everything off the motor. I could use a short tutorial if you donít mind. Then I can get the carb, muffler and intercooler back on. After those, might be time to buy the much wanted Fishfinder and get it mounted.  Canít wait for Mokai season number 3! Hard to believe itís almost 2 yrs since we picked them up.
