Re: Mechanical to electric fuel pumps

I spent (too much) time last season dealing with 3 separate fuel delivery issues on the starboard motor. One of them was that I couldn't get fuel to flow up at the end of the fuel line where it entered the carb. I remembered from the old Marinette site that Jeff had mentioned electric fuel pumps as ...

Re: Fuel Tank Removal

John, Unsure on placement. If you're trying to remove with fuel still in the tank, that's gonna limit the different ways you can maneuver the tank. My 32' FB has 2 tanks. The starboard tank (bless Marinette...) had its sender port and fuel pickup ports on the inside which made it majorly easy to go ...

Re: Fuel Tank Removal

This may sound "off the wall" but I'd suggest an internal video inspection of the tank to check for pitting. How...? I can't say I've ever used one, but there are inexpensive long neck cameras that could provide you with information. If worst came to worst (and cost comparison of just repl...

Re: sherwood raw water pump

I have printed off a copy of Jeff's pic above years ago and to this day it sits on the shelf where I put the disassembled impeller parts for each engine. The following spring (like in 2 weeks!) it comes down off the shelf as my "go to" assembly instructions!

Thanks Jeff!!!

Potential use of heat exchangers in non-exchanger 318

Folks, There are times when the Admiral and I will be on the boat during the early, or more frequently, the later part of the season when it's chilly outside while we're cruising the Ohio. Under such instances, running the genny to power the AC's heating system comes into play while underway. I was ...

Re: Flying Bridge Restoration

Great pics to go along with an amazing job. I'll probably never take on such an extensive project, but your detail offers a lot of insight into taking on one or two individual upgrades!

Thx!

Re: Help! No waste holding system. Starting from scratch.

Dave,
From a purely logistical perspective (cuz the "look" of the shower stall is gorgeous!)... Does that much tile cause the boat to list to starboard?

Re: Help! No waste holding system. Starting from scratch.

Dave, You (probably?) have a thru hull pickup for your original system (there's just not a readily (if any) thru hull valve to close). So that part's done. In fact, you can, and should keep the existing "processing" system (macerator, toilet, pickup). What you're wanting to do is eliminate...

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

HonestCharlie...

Starboard's pressure (as I remember from last season) had gone from about 60 (?) psi to 45.
Port pressure - rock solid at 60
