Re: Fuel Filter inside our gas tanks

We have one 120 gallon tank with two pickups on either side and the gauge in the center. Thought I had a pickup problem as well, turned out to be one of the anti-siphon valves, changed both out, ran perfect. Try running the port engine off the starboard tank.

Re: It may be official...

Trim Tabs

Not wanting to be left out with everything else that has failed my trim tabs have now fallen in line, starboard to be exact. The fact there original to the boat makes me want to gut out everything, except the tabs themselves and replace with new. The pump runs but seems to drag and I'm sure the actu...

Re: Fuel prime

Don't know but can tell you mine have been on for several years. After the boat has sat for extended periods I squeeze the bulbs until I can see pressure on the gauges and it fires right off. One thing I will say is crank it over several times before priming to get oil to the top of the engines, avo...

Re: Fuel prime

Put a primer bulb between the tank and pump. It will also give your starter motors some relief.

Re: Fuel prime

Disconnect the fuel lines from the main tank and try running from a remote tank, if it runs replace your anti siphon valves. You sure your pumps are good after sitting for twelve years?

Re: Prop cupping

Contact Bblades, 920-295-4435, have used them for years on my hot rod boat. There's a little art and voodoo that goes into prop tuning, much like welding "anyone" can do it but few have the true talent.
