Hi Lakey, Can't believe that we are in the same boat, literally. My Cav32 was also meant to be my transition boat, to get some runs on the board. However I have been so impressed with her performance, I was considering her as a keeper. I am also in the middle of working on the steering
area, Found I couldn't drop the rudder
without pulling the prop-shaft. All of this led to a voyage of discovery and cost. Almost finished the refit
through. New Prop-shaft and redder shaft seals
, ($$$) new quadrant cables
etc. A compelling motivation to also keep her longer. Refurbish of the rudder etc. BTW you may be able to help me out. I was about to post a cry for help.
Cavalier Lady is fitted with a Bukh
; most were. While working on the switch panel, it fell to the floor disconnecting all of the pins on the back of the key ignition switch!! I don't have a clue which colour goes on which pin. I searched the net and the best thing I can come up with is that the white wire likely goes on pin number 30 (the pins are actually numbered). This is also likely to be the power feed. If you happen to have a Bukh
DV20, I wonder if I could impose on you (and anyone else reading this) to take a pic of the back of the ignition switch with the wires attached. It seems that the factory wire colours are the same globally.
Cheers, also happy to chat Cav 32's till the sun comes up. Keith
