Re: Fuel tank/pickup question

Also make sure all your lines from the tank are new and the correct size. It could be that you have a diameter hose that is to small to keep up with the fuel pump. Is your pump electric or mechanical? A fair amount of the line is still the original copper, there is a small amount of rubber line to ...

Re: Fuel tank/pickup question

Thanks for replies guys. Screen filter at mouth of carb is clean, just had it rebuilt and double checked the screen again.

I've got it running reliably after fixing numerous issues, carb, timing, comdenser, wiring and a weak coil among some other things. Once I had it ru...

I had a family tragedy that has taken me away from it for most of the winter and spring but I've had a little time to work on it now...and I think I have it all straightened out.

Re: Gaskets for San Juan Bellingham strainer

Nothing wrong with good old bulk cork and rubber gasket material either. Napa carries both and I keep a supply of each on my boat.

Re: Engine access from under the cabin step true or false

I thought it looked like it would be easy to pull that panel behind the steps my 1978 28' express too..... no such luck. I pulled the stairs and the screws from the stainless door threshold to no avail. My boat got crushed by a tree before I got around to cutting an access hole in that bulkhead behi...

Re: How to remove pump from wheel?
