Re: Reinstalling heads/exhaust

I find it helpful to get the studs to hold the manifold and gaskets in clace. I also use a long bolt with the head cut off to hold the exhaust hose in place to get the bolts started. Go back and re torque when it has been run.

Re: Shaft Stuffing Box hose size and source.

Can someone clarify stuffing box hose size & length for 1" shaft. Is it 1 1/2" ID or 1 7/8 " ID and 4" or 5" long?
Thanks, Wayne

Ask for Jill. Tell her you want Bluff view dock.
It has a security gate and is a floating dock.

Jeff reminded me one time to check the "check valves" in the fuel lines from tank. They can get stopped up.

Re: Fuel System Restoration: Tanks to Carbs...

I put a fuel pressure gauge in line before carb, that way I can tell if it is a fuel delivery problem or carb problem.
Sometimes finding out what the problem is is finding out what is not.

Re: CHART PLOTTER ON THE CHEAP

Update.
I got a k10 Dragontouch tablet with Navionics mapping software and works great, especially at night in low light conditions. The only problem I have is the map doesn't move as I move. I think it is a setting I haven't discovered yet. A lot of chartplotter for $120.

Re: Engine Warms up and wont stay running

I believe Some electronic ignition systems require internal resistance coil and some do not . might check that.
Good luck.
