    Possibly One of My Best Ideas Yet.

    Ahh that make sense! I forgot about the whole bleeding thing. I've played with similar connectors for hydraulics before and it is impressive how little fluid leaks when you connect or disconnect them. Nice work!

    Possibly One of My Best Ideas Yet.

    More systems should be designed like this! I'm not sure if there's any added benefit to doing this with your system but I shut off the fuel valve and let the motor burn up any fuel left in the lines before working on it. It gets most of it out

    Fuel Filter/separator selection

    I'm seeing fuel filter and separator combos in two different styles - one that can be drained and one that looks like an oil filter. Both products claim to do the same thing @Stu Jackson My 25 has a saildrive but it breaks a lot. My primary motor is an Evinrude 9.9 that runs off of the inboard tank

    Fuel Filter/separator selection

    Looks like one of the images got dropped somehow. Racor also makes both styles

    Fuel Filter/separator selection

    I went to purchase a new fuel filter/separator and noticed there was two different types available for nearly the same price - The all metal one that looks like an oil filter and ones with a separate chamber that can be emptied. What are the pros and cons of each one?

    Simple head question

    Thanks for the advice Peggie. I'll try to use a garden hose to loosen the sludge in the tank. When you say detergent, are you referring to a holding tank treatment product?

    Simple head question

    The head only has two seasons of use since new. Most of the hoses have been replaced. The last couple of feet is on the never ending to do list

    New Pop Ups

    That makes sense. I go with the bare minimum apps on my iPhone. I do avoid many sites. I always block unnecessary scripts, fingerprints, etc on websites and maintain a hostfile to block connections I distrust. The evil runs deep on the interwebs

    Enhance or replace the O/B motor lift?

    Wow that was fast! Does it lock in the down position or does it rely on weight?

    Enhance or replace the O/B motor lift?

    I'm curious about your modification to the notch less part. I'm in no hurry to modify my mount so no rush. I'm totally jealous that yo uhave a boat shed at home!

    Tabernacle replacement

    Are you sure they arent through bolted? A pic of the underside would help Try getting something under the head such as a metal paint scraper, pry bar or my favorite, a body panel remover.Push against the threads and/or pull upwards while turning it. I suggest using cordless drill with socket
