Good info, thermostats are on my list of things to change, my port engine runs significantly hotter than my starboard. Being in fresh water, Lake Lanier, what would the optimum temp to run?
Eric appreciate the offer of the regulator but think I'm going to bite the bullet and replace both with Arco's. Spoke with them today and they walked me through the conversion, not much to it. By the way we're down in Flat Creek, last cove on the left just past FC9, drop by.

As I dig through the fuel system comes the filters. There are two bronze filter housings, copper lines in and out, just forward of the fuel tank, began to screw the top off the port housing only to have it stop about an inch up.
