Which breaker is popping? The 50 Amp?

Sean,

I like your grounding block and agree that is some high-quality work! Where did you get it? Looks like you are using all of it! There is a lot of stuff to ground.


I used the same ones that Brian did. They come in two sizes. Used the larger one for grounds and one each of the smaller ones for power.

It's the ignition breaker,
Not sure the amps, I have seen 20, 40, and 50. depending on the diagram listed.
the 351-wire-diagram-1 identifies the starter breaker as a 20 amp.

looks like the 50 amp is on the motor, it was fine, the dash mounted breaker is the one that pops


Thanks.

I just replaced mine during my rewire job. I think it was 30. I replaced a couple of the most used breakers and cleaned all the rest. I first sprayed them full of WD40, worked the button for a minute and then sprayed contact cleaner and worked some more.   I would try cleaning it and see if that helps.   You can do it with WD40, contact cleaner or rubbing alcohol.

Also, the starter doesn't draw current through that breaker so it should be OK but the starter relay does. Did you replace the starter relay with the new starter?

I did replace the starter relay, forgot to list that part number, The old one cracked in half when I moved the + cable while replacing the starter.

Steve,
Have you gotten any voltage readings when cranking the engine on both batteries? I suspect somethings up with that new battery since you trip the ignition breaker with it and not with the old battery. The two batteries are the variable. Get the VOM out and check the volts. A low voltage will cause a higher amp draw (Ohms law) and that may be overloading the breaker causing it to trip?

BTW, why the 1000CCA? Bigger in a battery isn't better in my opinion.

Here is the wiring diagram that I believe was being referenced above:

First problem there is the Everstart - never been a fan of those for a cranking battery. Cars, boats, ATVs, garden tractors ... seems they rarely last longer than 2 years no matter how well you maintain them.


First off the proper battery size for that boat should be a group 65.

Secondly I’m not sure where KC is getting his information on EverStart it’s probably one of the best on the market for the $ as long as you get the EverStart MAXX. They are made by Johnson Controls the same company the makes Interstate, Sears and Optima Batteries
I have one in my ‘85 ‘95 SN’s with no issues, I also have two in my Power Stroke F-250 that are close to 8 years old and just started my diesel in - 20*F in Quebec last month.

everyone has an opinion about battery's, I respect that. I worked on a project for a Battery mfg, and thats when I found out most readily available batteries are the same mfg, just a different label.

I was in the neighborhood of a Walmart and they only had the 24MS (maxx) in stock for $65 it's a deal. No other reason for that particular battery, I needed 2 quick for my Monterey and one for the SN. I know the hight issue on the SN, and I don't like that the battery sits so low in the hull. (we don't get a lot of rain, but when we do it's usually 1''s at a time. I want to move the battery(s) forward to keep it dry and in it's own batt box and eventually run two. One for just accessories.

As far as the breaker I haven't actually tested anything yet, looks like a weekend project. It's strange that the old battery starts the boat just fine, and I know it's still good with no voltage loss. I think a little work there will tell me whats up. After reading everyones comments, I think I may know right where to look.
This has been a great free project boat as I have taken it from a stuck motor, all the pumps dried up, starter was a big block of rust, and almost no steering to fast water over the last few months. I'm trying to wrap up the last few issues as I will be handing the keys to my son for his birthday next month. Free boats are not free as the old saying goes, and this one has produced some interesting challenges.

Items to go
-trouble shoot the breaker issue
-new carpet
-fuel sending unit
-repare some chipped gel coat at the transom tow point
-if needed reinforce the transom at the tow point
-detailing (maybe some new decals)

The battery box has a drain that goes into the bilge where the pump will take it out, no need to move it.
I hope after all this work you put a cover on the boat so the 1”s of rain doesn’t end up inside.

the end goal is to have two batteries. Battery box is small/ room for just one.

as far as the cover goes, with these winter storms, 1" of rain ends up being a full hull when the storm is over... Don't ask, just don't LOL to loud if your at work. I have to pull the drain plug on my Monterey, I only just installed a lift for the SN so I can keep it high and plug out during the winter months. (of course we had a storm roll through while on the lift recently and plug was still in UHG!!!

Just part of dealing with a boat.
