    Very nice install.

    (Although my OCD would go crazy having the new Raymarine logo on the Axiom and the old one on the VHF. Sorry for pointing that out if you never noticed. :))

    What do you have installed just to the left of the helm where the cockpit radio usually lives?

    Anybody else need to replace their anchor rollers? My forward roller is so shot that the anchor hangs up on the roller, and trying to find 4" wide (not diameter, width) rollers is like searching for gold.

    Anybody find a source?

    CH Yates has 4" rollers (and others too). Part number is 4163-4 or 4163-5. The 4/5 selection depends on bolt diameter of 1/2" or 5/8" respectively.

    I changed from a regular Danforth to a 37# Fortress and turned my own pulpit rollers out of Delrin and used a stainless steel sleeve in them to get the lighter Fortress to nest in the pulpit quicker and easier.

    I've noticed a lot of black smoke out of my port side Cat 3126 upon start-up. It lasts only a few minutes. Struggles to idle until it warms up to about 160. Also, when powering up plane out, a puff of black smoke that lasts a few seconds. Bad injector?

    Question please.

    Working on the fridge and notice that when using DC power only, the interior light of the fridge cycles on and off. First thing I'd like to check is the battery(s) that run the fridge but.. the 450 has five batteries. Two for port engine, two for starboard engine (recently replaced) and a single battery for the generator.

    Which battery is the DC source for the cabin refrigerator?

    Have you replaced your fuel filters recently? If not I would. I had the same issue and my fuel filters we're nasty. Works great now.

    Black smoke typiclly means partially burned fuel in the exhaust. On start up the governor could be set to rich or you may have an injector with carbon on the tip causing it to spray instead of atomozing the fuel. Neither condition is healthy for the engine, so you probably need to get a Caterpillar mechanic to diagnose tis properly. Also, Cat 3116's are not like a John Deere, Yanmar, Cummins etc. You cannot just pull an injector out and stick another one in because the injectors are cam fired and they require gauge blocks and a dial indicator to time them correctly.

    No longer available from TaylorMade. You have to buy a generic gasket by the foot and cut to fit. Miter the corners and seal with silicone. Not an optimal solution, but it is what it is..........

    Looks great, where did you order the gages from? Both of my fuel gauges don’t work. I was thinking of replacing them but no idea where to order them from.
