So starter took a dump in nov. No biggy as stuff happens. I send it off to IMI and I just spoke to them. Starter is fixed and on its way back to me. He said the start was “Full” of water I mean he asked me if my boat ever sank is how much water was in it. It’s not biggy and they were totally cool about it and I would do business with them again. However I got a question….
My boat has never sank or even come close to sinking. I have however sprung a leak and had enough water in the bilge to hit the flywheel but that was it and that wasn’t that long.. How does a marine starter actually get a marine certification? Isn’t it supposed to be sealed? Regardless I may need to look at a top mount solution.
