Thats where a mechanic comes in,I'm not a merc guy but under the flywheel is a charge coil that only sends charges to the batt, the other coil under the flywheel is a charge coil for sending a high charge to the CDI and coils.
Your right that it maybe a Rectifier/Regulator, only testing will tell,But if the motor is running it may be the charge coil or the stator, a good mechanic can OHM test and find the problem of 1 of the 4 possible causes.good luck.I have found so many repair shops dont electronically test parts! Bring the motor in explain the problem,get it back after paying and the problem is yet there.Thats guessing an lots a shops do that!! Then charge to bring it back for more replacement parts till someone spent 600 bucks for a 200 buck problem. Its disgusting watching and reading of repairs like that!!

do it yourself , order part and its plug and play


2 different parts that do different things? Instead of throwing money towards parts an guessing a mechanic that can test for the problem is best.

RH what makes you believe its 1 or both of those 2 parts?? Their both easy to replace BUT if that aint the problem you will spend $$ for non-needed parts
Whats the problem you notice?

Heres a read.Class5 roadway mix is great.However if in the furture you want to asphalt or concrete it holds moisture and heaves plenty in spring
I have 600ft of class5 roadway if graded and draged every spring its great.Its the spring frost heave that would ruin future asphalt/concrete applications.
I like what I have just takes some grading and draging every spring once moisture is low. I would never asphalt it with out grading and at least 4 inches of sand applied so the ashphalt/concrete wont crack.

qoute from you >>just paid to replace the fuel pump which the place we brought it to said was the issue and it "runs good now"

Sounds the problem is or isnt solved? I dont work on Mercs cause of costs of parts and hard to solve problems.Do you still have the loss of prime problem??
New fuel line,have you tried a different fuel tank? If I'm not mistaken Mercs have o-rings on each end of the fuel line have you replaced them?

So... I charged the battery to full with the charger set on 10 amp setting according to Some advice I got. (Until now, I have always used the 2 amp setting.) After fully charged, I removed the charger and let it sit for about 12 hours. Volt tested this morning at 12.72 at the battery terminals.

I turned on the master switch and volt tested again, and it read 12.70.
I turned on the console graph and it volt tested at 12.65.
I turned on one of the bow graphs and it volt tested at 12.55.
I turned on the 3rd graph and it volt tested at 12.50.
Finally, I turned them all off, and turned off the master switch, and the battery tested at 12.62.

What, if anything, does this tell me?
console graph had a draw of .05. bow had a draw of .10 twice the amount? then the other 3ed graph dropped voltage .05.the master switch dropped .02.I think you have a wire short somewhere between bow graph an master switch.Seeing the other two draw .05 and one draws .10.Turning on a master switch shouldnt draw any power not untill a source to use power is turned on. The battery drop leads me to think a short in there

I have an older Minnkota that requires the Legacy foot pedal, and trying to find a new one in stores is proving to be difficult. Live near Cloud and struck out at Mills, Gander, Dicks, Scheels. Hoping to get a new one before Thursday evening. Anyone have any suggestions on potential places to check between Cloud and Alex? I will be heading that way for the weekend. Not a fan of online ordering... any help appreciated. Thanks
I'm just east of Willmar in Atwater area,I have 4 of them somewhere all work 2 new 2 used.

The difference between a marine battery an auto is only how many solder points the plates have to hold them in place,Marine have more solder points
Heres a battery charge/discharge list I think you may need a larger and newer battery.Your battery will yet work but it just aint taking a full charge.
You wrote " I volt-tested the cranking battery and it reads 12.20."
Charge it fully let it sit 24 hours then check the volatage again.at 12.20 your less than 50% capacity of charge



* Fully charged batteries store at 12.75 volts
* 50% state of charge is 12.3 volts
* 100% state of discharge is 11.90 volts

I used to work in sales for the second largest bearing manufacturer in the world. All the major bearing manufacturers ( timken, koyo, ntn, nsk, skf,etc) all have manufacturing in various countries. Not every application needed the tightest tolerances or best surface finish.
Aint that the way we went down hill WOW

Honesty is the best policy! sloppy bearings/Parts wear out.Used to be a time I remember late 50s to early 70s when tolerances were the go to for a long lasting fit,Not so anymore most junk is loose an not made for a lasting fit.Pay the price order from Germany with exact measurements on your behalf.last place left for a decent machinest!!
