Re: Hard Starting

If it turns out to be the fuel pump, you can purchase them at Go2Marine.com. I had to replace mine (starboard engine) last year. Cost was 94.32 .

Re: Mildew removal

Launched the boat yesterday. Found, during the trip to the summer marina, that I'd missed a few spots.... drawer in galley w/ kitchen utensils...
set of binoculars that had been left on boat over the winter.

Re: Mildew removal

Getting the boat ready for spring Splash Day. Ran into a situation when I went down to start getting her ready. Boat's been buttoned up since last October. When I went inside I found an unbelievable amount of green mildew (,or mold?) throughout the boat. I started cleaning it today using 20 Muleteam...

Re: bargain Marinette

Has to be a typo! Maybe 165k when it was factory new. And even if the "1" at the front was added inadvertently, 65K is a long stretch when there have been 41' Marquis in pristine shape going for low 50's and lower. Wish him luck.

Re: Engine Temperature spike

If you want to ensure you know when you swapped out a t-stat, you could take a file (hardened steel) and scratch the date of change into the t-stat. It's brass (softer metal) and there are plenty of spots where the date could be etched and it won't affect t-stat's functionality.

Re: Exhaust manifold removal

Since you have the manifold removed and it's loaded with rust you could try Jeff's process of "rodding them out". I'm not sure of the process tho I suspect it entails using a stout screwdriver(?) to carefully dig out / scrape surfaces of the rust in all passages in the manifold. This might...

Re: Mechanical to electric fuel pumps

I spent (too much) time last season dealing with 3 separate fuel delivery issues on the starboard motor. One of them was that I couldn't get fuel to flow up at the end of the fuel line where it entered the carb. I remembered from the old Marinette site that Jeff had mentioned electric fuel pumps as ...

Re: Fuel Tank Removal

John, Unsure on placement. If you're trying to remove with fuel still in the tank, that's gonna limit the different ways you can maneuver the tank. My 32' FB has 2 tanks. The starboard tank (bless Marinette...) had its sender port and fuel pickup ports on the inside which made it majorly easy to go ...
