Re: Facebook v. Marinette Forum posts

Noticed that awhile ago. Seems to be quality vs. quantity. Often I advise people to look on this site for the correct info, sometimes I see unbelievably wrong info on the Facebook group. I think most people are on Facebook already, so that's what they use.

Re: New member with questions, Sedan 32

Welcome to the group. #1. Does it just stink, or does it smell like gasoline? ( the engine will only smell a little oily when it's hot) If it is gasoline, be very careful! Open everything up and turn on your bilge blowers. Then fix the leak. Most likely it is a skunky smell from the shower sump, the...

Re: Trim Tabs

Very happy with the Bennett tabs and the company. I replaced the switches and the solenoids on mine.

Re: Low Engine Power, White Smoke

Hold it! You can not use the PCV hose for your vacuum source when adjusting the idle mixture screws, or you're adjustments will end up way too rich. Yes, I was aware of that. I have a different engine and different carb. (Chev 350 with a Holley carb) On mine , I am able to disconnect the PCV hose f...

Re: Low Engine Power, White Smoke

Not familiar with your carb, but see what you have and try it. If you have PCV you can unhook it and put the gauge there. Gauge is about $20 at NAPA.

Re: Low Engine Power, White Smoke

You HAVE to adjust the carb. And set the timing. I would use a vacuum gauge to get maximum vacuum.

Re: No Fire

Good to hear! For my engines to run on land, I just put a hose from the input of the sea strainer into a 5 gallon bucket. Run a garden hose into the bucket. At idle the hose will barely keep the bucket full. Rev it up and it will empty the bucket and you have to stop the engine. You just have to kee...

Re: whistle noise when shifting in gear

I have a whine too, but mine is from the engine. I would tie the boat to the dock securely, then you can run one engine at a time and put it in gear and pull against the dock. You can climb down and check the transmission by yourself. Run it in forward and reverse until the transmission is warm. Shu...

Re: whistle noise when shifting in gear

Make sure you have plenty of good fluid in it. As noted, hot, shut it down and check right away. Sounds like low fluid or slipping clutch discs.
