    maybe I need more information, its 36ft steel hull. The component looks like a transformer and is supposed to hook to the starboard shunt

    I suggest you search the forum for capac. Essentially, this unit runs a counter current through your hull to help keep it from rusting out. Dissimilar metals in the presence of a conductor, like water, act a bit like a battery ànd will degrade the metal. It's really important that it's working, especially in salt water.

    I know about the the hull voltage capac system, so Im guessing the transformer powered that system. With it disconnected that system is operational, so also guessing the battery charger is powering it now. One of the problems of old boats is that its hard to know what has been changed over the years, thanks for your help

    Amen to not knowing whats been changed over the years. Sorry I miss understood your post. I know how some of this older stuff gets a little sketchy.
