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

The capacity of a fuel tank, whether it is square or round is easily calculated using a "Tank Volume Calculator" link found online through a Google search. I measured my rectangular tanks length, width and height and input those measurements into one of these programs and it spit out 75 ga...

Re: Aft Deck Restoration

Joe, I haven't touched the rudders or their packing boxes at this time. When my boat gets pulled I will be dropping both rudders, inspecting them and replacing the packing boxes at that time.

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

Both fuel tank sending units are now wired. I turned on my ignition keys to energize both circuits and both fuel gauges bumped up to the "Empty" hash mark. I'm calling this installation "Tested SAT" for now but anxious to see what they read as I fuel both tanks up. Both tanks are...
