Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Engines not starting

David, Thats interesting , because when the engine would not start over the last several months on occasion , I found if I switched the switches on and off several times the engine would start . I figured that the contacts inside were poor , but then was never sure if it was a coincident . I tried pulling on the handles , there is a small hole in the handle , I figure with a pin to hold the handle on.

I had the same problem on my 1989 Maramu (no generator) until I replaced the main battery on/off switches, which I obtained from Amel.  The switches were tired and current wasn't passing through sufficiently to operate the solenoid and starter.  Failure to crank was intermittent.  I think the red handles just pull off.
