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 ...

Re: Fuel Tank Removal

This may sound "off the wall" but I'd suggest an internal video inspection of the tank to check for pitting. How...? I can't say I've ever used one, but there are inexpensive long neck cameras that could provide you with information. If worst came to worst (and cost comparison of just repl...

Re: sherwood raw water pump

I have printed off a copy of Jeff's pic above years ago and to this day it sits on the shelf where I put the disassembled impeller parts for each engine. The following spring (like in 2 weeks!) it comes down off the shelf as my "go to" assembly instructions!

Thanks Jeff!!!

Potential use of heat exchangers in non-exchanger 318

Folks, There are times when the Admiral and I will be on the boat during the early, or more frequently, the later part of the season when it's chilly outside while we're cruising the Ohio. Under such instances, running the genny to power the AC's heating system comes into play while underway. I was ...

Re: Flying Bridge Restoration

Great pics to go along with an amazing job. I'll probably never take on such an extensive project, but your detail offers a lot of insight into taking on one or two individual upgrades!

Thx!

Re: Help! No waste holding system. Starting from scratch.

Dave,
From a purely logistical perspective (cuz the "look" of the shower stall is gorgeous!)... Does that much tile cause the boat to list to starboard?
