JA: Is there anything else the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?

Does the boat have Mercurys Smartcraft gauges on it?

Hi Jason. it does not have Smartcraft gauges. Mercruiser 8.1S HO FWC, 2007 Regal 3760, 185/190 hours on engines.

Hi George. Without smartcraft gauges the engine is going to have to get hooked up to a scan tool in order to pull the codes, and see what is causing the alarm. There is only 2 ways to pull codes, either via Smartcraft, or a scan tool.

thanks. not much help. Guess I have no choice other than to go to a mechanic that has the scan tool. Thanks anyway.
