Re: LM 318 140 thermosts

Before replacing, I make sure they really are bad... - put in pot on stove - heat water to 130 deg (use a Harbor Freight infrared tester) - raise water temp to 140 deg (or in the neighborhood) and watch that the copper pellet / spring system reacts (would equate to openin...

Re: Hard Starting

If it turns out to be the fuel pump, you can purchase them at Go2Marine.com. I had to replace mine (starboard engine) last year. Cost was 94.32 .

Re: Mildew removal

Getting the boat ready for spring Splash Day. Ran into a situation when I went down to start getting her ready. Boat's been buttoned up since last October.

Re: bargain Marinette

Has to be a typo! Maybe 165k when it was factory new. And even if the "1" at the front was added inadvertently, 65K is a long stretch when there have been 41' Marquis in pristine shape going for low 50's and lower. Wish him luck.

Re: Engine Temperature spike

If you want to ensure you know when you swapped out a t-stat, you could take a file (hardened steel) and scratch the date of change into the t-stat. It's brass (softer metal) and there are plenty of spots where the date could be etched and it won't affect t-stat's functionality.

Re: Exhaust manifold removal

Since you have the manifold removed and it's loaded with rust you could try Jeff's process of "rodding them out". I'm not sure of the process tho I suspect it entails using a stout screwdriver(?) to carefully dig out / scrape surfaces of the rust in all passages in the manifold. This might...
