    Hoses from somewhere going nowhere.

    Thank you, I put the sending unit in when I replaced the fresh water pump and replaced all the hoses. The temperature gauge was also replaced, so now I have a separate sending unit for the gauge and the alarm. The present water heater was only setup for shore power, so the piping coming out of...

    yanmar water pump leaking after replacement

    Just put a new fresh water pump, sending units and t-stat on a 2gm20f, no leaks, and I check every day. However, before doing the install, I scraped the surfaces on the block and the t-stat housing with a razor blade, then I used a waterproof pool grease to hold the gaskets in place while...

    Yanmar Reface

    Don't want to be a smart ass, my interpretation of Showing their age: bolt heads are not crisp angles, corroded, threads are showing wear, rust. Thats age. another thought is when something is 33 years old and being in salt water, a good practice is when replacing components do the entire system...

    Yanmar Reface

    Did a little more homework with a parts catalog and found the bots on the heat exchanger are plated, so the grade issue I know is stamped on the head and always lock washers and a dis-similar metal tee-gel. Thanks for the advice.

    Yanmar Reface

    Presently replacing the sea water pump, fresh water pump, fuel lines, filters and belts, cleaning the heat exchanger and replacing all of the hoses and clamps. All the major pieces are for the most part Yanmar / Racor. The nuts and bolts on most of the equipment are showing their age, so my...

    Hoses from somewhere going nowhere.

    I have (2) 3/4" hoses that are sitting underneath my Yanmar 2GM20F on a Hunter 31. They are not hooked up to anything that I can see and when I have 'checked' them out as they come out of the starboard side engine bulkhead through a rubber gasket. There seems to be hydraulic fluid in them...

    Why does Hunter have a bad name?

    I hate phones. Like I was saying, quite a few boats. You buy a 30 year old boat and it needs work compare to a house they need work. What I have learned in the past 6 months is that if the previous owners didn’t keep it up then a boats going to be problems, I don’t care about make or model. When...

Theboat came with a very hard to read older Garmin Chartplotter/ GPS, and I mean old. Radio has a GPS interface. I am looking for a base...
