Default Maxum 27 scr

Hi guys,just joined onto this site. I have imported a 1995 maxum 27scr to sydney australia from Sacremento California,what a long process,but iam hoping it's not a waste of time and money. I've had a few problems with the boat since arriving,so I've replaced,starter motor,altinator,belts,sea pump,batteries,fresh water pump,changed all lighting to led bulbs. I've had the carby over hauled to.
I picked up a fuel injection system for it to,but mite wait till it's running ok before getting this installed( what do you think ) the motor is a 7.4 with a bravo 2 leg, and I purchased a new prop for it to
Read some good blogs on this site,so this is why I joined all the way from Australia
Cheers
Geoff

What do we think of what?

Sounds like normal things for a boat this age and if it had been sitting the PO may have neglected to address them.

Is the fuel injection system marine rated?

Default Maxum 27scr

Hey thanks for the reply,the injection system is of a 7.4 mercruiser,it has all the parts,computer ,wiring harness,fuel pump. I've had my mechanic clean all the injectors on it and it all came out good. I just want to see what else my boat mechanic finds, as to why it's turning over but not starting,he has checked the fuel and changed the spark plugs,he is checking it for me in the next few days. I just want to get out and enjoy it before winter comes,mind you our winters aren't quite like yours,lol

We have a few members here from OZ.

Engines require air, fuel, and spark to run. Air is easy, if he verified fuel and spark then it's a matter of ignition timing to fire the spark plugs at the correct time.

Best of luck.
