Customer Question

I have a 1987 Chaparral 198 f boat with a Mercury 4 cylinder 165 hp motor. The motor number is ***** I do not see a alternator or generator so how does the battery get charged? There is only one belt that runs off the crank pulley and runs the power steering pulley.

Hi Allan, my name is Jason.

Are you having a problem with the battery not charging, or are you just curious as to how it works on this engine?
