Guys, this thread is over 4 years old.
I changed that bracket out a week after the water pump, and documented it on SBO.
And with Stu's help, ironically. :-)
Yes gas. Fog your gas motors. Fog oil not to be run in a diesel.
I guess fog a generic term for prep for storage. When I was in the cold east, I'd run anti freeze through the raw water side, which pushed out the salt water from the exhaust path, replacing with AF. I'm wondering if that is a...
Local broker's story:
All powerboats, but applies to us.
A little Regal 24, Volvo inboard V8. Boat sat for a year. Owner listed it for sale. Boat started and ran for buyer. Then very next day after sale, engine wouldn't turn over. Seized.
Mechanic discovered that rusted valve stem on a cylinder...
Yes, seals! :doh:
In my mind they look like bearings, so subconsciously typed it.
But might as well change the bearing too while you're in there. I think it's plastic, and comes in one form of the kit.
Leaking from the weep hole is likely merely the common and intentional indicator that the bearings need replacing.
Bearing kit is I think $40. Rem pump and then press bearing in professionally or you can do it.
Reinstall pump and ready to go.
No need to buy new pump.
It of course was not assumed that she was pulling flush water from the holding tank.
I was thinking that if there's diesel smell in the head, it may be coming from the tank, even after flushing. Those joker valves never get replaced. ;)
I tested it just now on boat's MMSI radio and obtained your same results on 2 of the weather channels. Then switched to handheld non MMSI radio and heard same recording on those channels. So it's not your radio.
There's no way a broadcast station can know what your MMSI license status is.

I saw this video of a lightning strike yesterday morning on a Facebook page called "Bristol Owners", a page for owners of Bristol Yachts sailboats. The video was posted by a member, the owner of the struck...
Me using lefty irrelevant illogic:
"You sailors love wood. But your boats are now made of fiberglass. How come you're not mad about that?
You use a swiveling stove to cook, because your boat tilts. Why not fix your boat so it doesn't tilt?
Sailboats were used to carry slaves. By using a...
I too quit Nike after their idiot ad with the traitor.
This newest idiocy only cements it further.
And regarding "target customers", horse pucky. I have been an avid Nike shoe fan for decades. Nothing but Nike. Even on the boat.
There was nothing anyone could say to persuade me to change...
If you threw out the hoses, take the new or old pump to the parts store to match hose. Or there might be specs online via the above link.
I special ordered a Faria tach with both red and white markings, to break it up and be easier to read. And because I liked how the new volt meter lit up at night, highlighting the markings, so wanted the tach to match.
Well, the Faria lights up of course, but the markings are not highlighted ie...
I did the thread on this Aqua Signal topic about a year or so ago.
Installed the Marine Beam bulb. No issues yet.
I won't say it's brighter than the halogen, but it's certainly bright enough. And it's a nice moonlight color. Also I think the coverage is wider and more even. The whole foredeck...
