Re: Thermostat Housing

If they broke off, it's gamer over! I used to pull the t-stats at the end of the year, but found the motor still fills up with Pink Stuff with them in place--there's a t-stat by pass circuit hiding in there someplace. I always drain as much water (and rust) out of the motor and exhaust before pumpin...

Re: Thermostat Housing

I assume your housing is so rotted the water bypasses the t-stat around the edges.

Had that problem with mine and solved it by making a "gasket" out of stainless steel, glue and riveting the t-stat to it, and using two gaskets. Worked perfectly!

Re: Fresh water pump & accumulator

It reduces the number of starts, but the pump runs about the same. Worth it.

You'll find the Sure Flo is a LOT better than that belt driven clunker.

Re: Flying Bridge Restoration

Actually, that's a superior way to arrange the throttles and shifters. Less chance of making a mistake that way, and it makes syncing the engines easier.

Re: Engine oil, transmission fluid and filter types for Chrysler 360

There's supposed to be a screen in the lower right fitting going to (or from?) the oil cooler. Mine didn't have one, however. You can suck out the oil from the dipstick opening and refill it a few times to get a good change. Be sure to get ALL the oil it needs for so very little oil is in the fool t...

Re: New Boater, New to me Marinette.

You MUST get it moved close to home since you'll be working on it a loooong time. Lots of potential there.

Re: Calcium Chloride, Will it eat my M?

Shower drain water WILL eat the hull badly if allowed to sit in the bilge--one of my friend's boats had that problem--so get it all out of there. (A wet or dry vacuum works well for this.) Agreed on venting the boat. I never shrink wrapped mine and only had mold in the damn refrigerator for some foo...
