Re: 360 valve cover gasket replacement

Agreed. I replaced an oil pressure switch a year on my old 32 footer. Used standard "idiot light" switches. Jeff PS: The temperature switches (for the alarm system) need to be removed and tested now and then. (Use a pan of boiling water and an ammeter to test them.) Of the four that were o...

Re: Paint Stripper

Right! Soon as the water from the rinse is gone.

You have to watch the weather forecast and plan this move out carefully, starting early in the morning. Lots of fun!

Re: Paint Stripper

You need to treat the aluminum with a prime containing acid that etches the surface, turning it unto something paint will adhere to. Lots of brands out there. Spray or roller it on, let it sits for X minutes, then hose it off. When dry, then on goes the epoxy barrier coats (at least two) followed by...

Re: Changing Habits with age

You, like so may others, have learned the value of a floating condo on the water. What others have found is that, having a smaller boat used solely for the occasional cruise, makes even more sense--sort of like having your cake and eating it too. One thing I must disagree with you on: going up and d...

Re: Alternator / Ignition / Ballast resistor questions from a dummy

..."The original 5 pin ignition modules needed a ballast resister in order to reduce the voltage to the unit the newer 4 pin do not." I do not believe that is correct. In fact, I know that running the switch box on a full 12 volts will cause it to fail after a period of time. Both of mine ...
