As a pilot I have learned from the mechanics that there are resets and then there are RESETs. First turn off the equipment circuit breaker. Leave it off for TWO minutes! I don't know why two minutes is key but I have seen it make a difference on many occassions. If that fails remove all power (AC and DC) from ship (airplane/boat) and then repower the ship and then the effected equipment. Depowering a jet half way through preflight is not done lightly but it is occasionally the only thing that can be regain the effected equipment. This especially true with electronics.

spinaker75is correct in respect that there are different forms of "RESETs".
Most electronics have two forms of memory. Volatile and Non-volatile. Volatile memory can be erased (reset) by a power dump. However, most error's and error codes are held in Non-volatile memory. Which as the name implies, stays latched after a power dump and/or power failure.
To erase these, a memory erase must be done. Which is what you are doing when you do the Fridg-O-Boat's reset.

In Avionics, this is referred to as a B.I.T.E. (Built In Test Equipment). If the fault is a phantom error, the unit will reset and then operate normally. But if there is a hard fault, it will fail the B.I.T.E., throw a code, and continue to mess up until the fault is corrected.

Kinda like your "Check Engine Light" on your car. You might be able to reset it with a OBD II tester, but any hard faults will come back. Causing the light to come back on.

Soooooo...
A power dump will sometimes get rid of nuisance errors. But any latched errors will need to be reset using the manufacturers procedures.
If it comes back, then you have a hard fault.

Thomas O'Brien replied to the topic 'Yanmar Exhaust Mixing Elbows' in the forum. 3 days ago

I contacted Hake Marine/Island Packet. They were very helpful. On the IP 440 and IP420 they removed the Yanmar mixing elbow and commissioned a company called Suncoast Specialities (727-584-3252) in Largo FL to manufacture a different mixing elbow. The company is still in business, they charge $442 and it takes about 2 weeks to manufacture the part.

That makes a lot of sense. I was able to get the shaft to ~0.002" after fixing the mount. I'll check it again in the water after a few weeks and see if it changes.

Geronimo

The mast is grounded also by the shrouds and stays which connects to the chain plates which are connected to the grounding green wires. I had the IP 27 for 10 years and I do not recall a wire on the step plate. So, your mast is grounded.

William replied to the topic 'Shaft Alignment tolerance' in the forum. 5 days ago

Michael, it seems like we are supposed to measure and align the shaft after the boat is back in the water. something about the flexing of the boat or whatever. I think i read that in Nigal Calder's book. But I'm getting old and might be mistaken.
One thing I am sure of is that aligning the shaft was much easier on my 31 after I used a block and tackle between my engine and the boom to take some to the weight off. I loosened the bolts between the mounts and the floor. Then I was able to move the engine around by hand and rubber mallet, get it aligned side to side and then let off the tackle. Then i took another measurement, did a few minor tweaks, and we were good to go. Don't forget to recheck the alignment after you give the new mounts a chance to settle in. While your down there suffering, you might as well repack that shaft seal!
