What number is your boat?

Hi
9124
It is not the thought of falling out i fell is the problem, it's two ton of boat traveling at 30 knts with no opperator (probibly safer than with me behind the wheel).

I am going to the marina today, so i will take some pics for you.

Not the best photo, just one I had hanging around, but it show the flap in red, the top of the solenoid middle bottom, the turbo of to the left connected by two jubilees and a rubber hose. There is a second latching solenoid in the console which means you have to switch off and on to re-engage. Des

Ian A, If I remember correctly, JK has a link for freebie image manipulation software in his thread about posting pictures.

Pete
although mine is not connected, while the engine was ticking over i fliped it down, the engine didn't stop but was very close to it, tried to pull it open again but couldn't shift it, had to stop the engine an then it fliped back on it's own, there is a very small hole in the flap, which is for what, f**k knows, i would imagine that if this was activated at full speed it would be like hitting a brick wall, with a petrol engine it just kills the spark, this seals off the air so the engine would stop very quickly, might smoke a bit as well.
There is also an up side to this arangement, the turbo would be forced to slow down quickly and would not be spinning like the clappers with the engine is stopped and no oil being pumped around.

Pete, I may have a spare complete assembly if you want one. Dont want anything for it (if i can find it!) Sometimes they have been connected in with the alarm so they also shut down the engine in case of fire.

The circuit is very simple if you dont have it already. The hole is so it can spring back up easily without getting a partial vacuum & to not stop the engine too quickly.

The other way as you will know is a mechanical stop solenoid on the pump .

I remember seeing a similar solenoid on a p22 last year which was very efficient, it stopped the engine dead in seconds, in fact, so quickly we removed it because we thought it may damage the engine !

It works

One of the kids pulled out the kill cord while we were doing about 10 knots and the engine stopped so gentle I didnít realise what had happened. It re-started fine. I was told there is a mercury switch in the circuit some where which stops the engine if you capsize, I havenít found it but what Neville says makes sense because with the early development of this boat Halmatic were very worried about engine fires caused by the turbo hence the port hole and access point in the engine cover
