How difficult to remove and reconnect fly bridge on a 40 ft silverton aft boat?
i did it w/o help, until it was ready to move onto the bow. Put 2x4's in position like rails from the cabin roof to the bow. Slide the bridge off and onto the rails, to the bow. Tie off the bridge before you move it and pay out line to control it. Used thick carpet to cushion the bridge when on the bow.
Take pictures of the wires under the bridge, so you can put them back. Have wire in same colors on hand for replacement. Cut ties which hold harnessed wires, then pull harness apart. Cut other wires toward middle of length and use connectors crimped onto them for future assembly.
Remove power steering lines and cap off to stop hydrolic fluid leaks.
Remove screws which hold bridge in place on cabin deck. Be prepared to use calk into screw holes so fresh water rain doesn't get in.
Remove seats and stanchions and rails from bridge to reduce height below max limit.
You can use machinery like a lift, to assist you.
Talk to the workers at your marina for ideas. Try you tube video help.
How do you get the oil change required light to go out on a 2006 crown Victoria after changing the oil and filter?
Look to the front left of the engine where the transmission mounts to it, you will see the starter there and it has several large wires bolted to it. Remove those wires ( after you have disconnected the battery ) and then remove the two bolts holding the starter on, replace with the new one and reconnect the wires, then reconnect the battery and off you go.
Most Ford trucks are the same. First thing you do, is disconnect the battery cables. Then get underneath the truck, disconnect the negative cable from the starter. Remove the 2 bolts holding the starter. Remove, and replace the starter, and reconnect the negative cable to the starter, then reconnect your battery.
If the bridge has an adjustment then use that. If not it is more difficult and depends on the desin of the bridge- it may be possible to remove the saddle (strip that strings press on) and reduce its size - can be tricky. If you over reduce there is a danger of getting string buzz on some frets which may need CAREFULLY sanding down if they are too high.
that depends on what engine the truck has if it is a 7.3 l remove serpentine belt remove bottom radiator hose and dump coolant remove radiator hose from water pump remove water pump install new pump reconnect radiator hose reconnect bottom hose to radiator fill with coolant replace serpentine belt start engine let it get to running temp check coolant leve;
Disconnect the negative battery terminal. Remove tension from the tensioner pulley and pull the serpentine belt off the alternator. Disconnect the alternator electricall connectors. Remove the bolts that hold the alternator in place. Pull out the old alternator and put the new one in it's place and replace the bolts. Reconnect the electrical connectors. Put the serpentine belt back in place. Reconnect the battery.
