Re: Dual Helm switching procedure/rudder issue

I did. Not sure if I am using the right terminology but it thinks its called the keyway. The piece that the linkage connects to that slides down on the square shaft that connects to the rudders. There is a cotter pin under the keyway that sheered off and allowed the key to drop a couple inches. Just...

Dual Helm switching procedure/rudder issue

Is there a recommended procedure for switching from lower to upper helm and vise versa? I'm having an issue when I turn the wheel all the way to port all I get is a strait rudder. When I turn all the way starboard it is a very slight angle. Generally I put the wheel in the middle then pull and turn ...

Re: LM 318 140 thermosts

I went with these 160 degree fail safes after loosing an engine due to a thermostat failing closed. I can watch the temp go from 160 to 180 then back down to 160.

Re: rear couch/bed

I don't have any drawings but mine just happens to be in my garage right now since I am finishing up an engine replacement. I set it out on my trailer and snapped a couple pics for you. If you are looking for a specific measurement let me know. Notice the back does not have a 90 degree angle. Its mo...

Exhaust Manifold Options?

Apparently i didn't get all the water out of on of my manifolds when pulling the engine out for rebuild over winter. Nothing like adding insult to injury. Anyone know where to get a used or reasonably priced exhaust manifold for a 1987 318?

Re: Mildew removal

I've used hydrogen peroxide for mold cleanup in residential cleaning. Not sure how the works on Teak. Has anyone tried using peroxide? On drywall it disintegrates the mold.

Re: Oil Filter Adapter plug?

Thank you EWRice for the confirmation and piece of mind! This is my second go at replacing the motor I was hoping this wasn't something I over looked on the previous motor that broke a valve that destroyed the piston in cylinder 1. Is it safe to assume that other oil passage plugs that come installe...

Re: Broken valve new engine

Thanks for the info, I will check that on the next engine. And yes that is the reverse rotation engine. This really stinks as I am not getting re-embersed for the labor, good times! This sucks as this was not a small job as you know!
