    Default Navico 5000 Free

    This came installed when I bought Dura Mater. I took it apart to see how it worked but didn't re-install it. Does anyone want it?

    Did it work before you took it apart?

    Yes, but then it stopped. If I were an electrical engineer I could probably figure out which little doo-hicky came undone, but I'm not. Maybe you can, Steve?

    Did you unplug the motor (the red plug)? But I'm just a bean-counter so what do I know?

    Do you mean the red wire? Brian Cline (s/v Maris, Transpac 2014) un-did that when he installed my new TP 1000 for me. That was the one I had before my beauteous Pelagic. Thank you again, Brians.

    No, the red and blue wires on the inside. In the bigger photo:

    1) Turn the left hand half end-for-end and snuggle it right up against the right half.

    2) Grab the little red plug that's next to the motor and plug it into the other end of the white thing where the red and blue wires plug in on the right half. A little bit of dielectric grease might be good on it first. It might snap in and lock (hopefully).

    3) Put the two halves back together, first carefully fitting that red gasket between the halves to keep the water out.

    Bob might be your uncle (not me, that other Bob).

    Good advice from BobJ there. Play with it, wiggle the wires, clean contacts, put it back together and see if it works again. If it still hasn't found a home I'll take it.

    Oh, it fits together just fine. But it was interesting to see its insides. Steve, where is Dianne? I'll put the Navico in her cockpit.

    DIANNE lives Brickyard Cove dry storage #80. The row closest to the office buildings, about 3/4 of the way to the east. Next to Dragonsong. Trailer looks like a yard sale with sails, milk crates and a bike. Easy to find. If you want to save a climb up the bow ladder just leave the goods in one of the milk crates. e mail me for tool box combo

    I agree it is fun taking things apart to see their little guts. Maybe I can get it to work. I'll have fun with it anyway.

    DAZZLER (Wylecat 30) came from the prior owner with a well used Navico TP5000 tiller pilot. Two comments:
    1. As best I recall, there's a fuse inside there somewhere.
    2. Mine failed where the wires connect into the wired remote. The result was unexpected (surprise!) course changes (Oh, you mean you didn't want to tack?). I tried, but could not figure out how to get the remote apart without distructive measures. I found the AP still worked with the wired remote disconnected and ended up selling it (through the the SSS Forum) to some Brit who really wanted it for his cruising boat on Lake Maggiore, Italy.
