Re: Forward berth leak

I'll check the through hulls. I have caulked the hatch and the shore power plugs, small port in berth, etc. After rain the headliner is soaked pretty bad. I feel like it's coming in through hatch and running to the starboard side. I found the captain Tolly crack creeper(new name) on Amazon. I'll giv...

Forward berth leak

I have a 1979 37 double cabin and there is a leak somewhere on the top deck above the forward V berth. I have siliconed around the hatch and tried various things around the drain in the corners of the forward bench where it drains to the side decks. I can't seem to find the problem and wanted to see...

Re: Water out of spark plugs hole.

I'll accept crossed toes also if that's a option. Lol yea I really was counting on luck to get this thing running without too many big issues. I hope to get something in the cylinders this week. Unfortunately the location it is blocked up is between 2 buildings with no room for any equipment to even...

Re: Water out of spark plugs hole.

Would this mean a engine rebuild? Or would it be possible to pull the heads and clean this piston and hopefully break it free?

Re: Water out of spark plugs hole.

This may explain why the closed cooling system on this engine seemed low on antifreeze?

Re: Water out of spark plugs hole.

Jeff not yet just pulled the plugs and was going to get some sort of light oil such as transmission fluid, MMO, etc. Sounds like I need some good rust remover if that's possible to get into the cylinder. I need to get a funnel or something with a tube to get to the spark plugs holes.

Re: Water out of spark plugs hole.

Oil is fresh looking but doubt it has been started in a long time. Story I have is boat set for 10 years. It was plug closest to transmission end of motor if that means anything. Oil looks goof, plug actually looked good also. Water smelt of faint gas but was crystal clear.
