Re: Exhaust manifold removal

Compression test, doesn't matter much if it's cold or warm in my opinion. what you want to look for is one or more cylinders that vary greatly from the others, 10 percent or less differential is the rule of thumb.if they are all low squirt some penetrating oil in each cyl and test again.

Re: Mechanical to electric fuel pumps

Good advise, for mechanical pumps are more reliable in the long run. The main advantage of the E-pump is priming the carb. Jeff I myself am a fan of seeing some oil pressure on the guage before my engine fires up so I've never let a long crank time scare me. If your engine is tuned up and you have ...

Re: Stantions and railing mods

My '78 28 express had an opening in the transom rail, directly in the center. The opening had a chain to close it up, just like the openings to the cockpit on the port and starboard sides.

Re: Dual pocket water pump plumbing.

Now I've got them routed properly per your directions and it is getting too hot, upwards of 180*-200*.... tstat is opening, I verified by pulling...

Dual pocket water pump plumbing.

Does anyone have or can someone take some pictures of how your dual pocket water pump hoses are attached from top and water pump side of the engine? I have a feeling mine may be plumbed incorrectly. Thanks in advance for any help, I am seeing conflicting diagrams on line.

Re: Electric fuel pump issue.

Or throw the electrical stuff away, buy a replacement mechanical pump. There are mechanical pumps out there that have the boss for the overflow/vent line to the carb, you just have to drill and tap and install a fitting.
