View Full Version : New to boats and need some help

04-11-2017, 02:50 AM
First of all, I live in Hudson valley NY. I bought my first boat late last season. It is a 1986 22' century cuddy cabin with a 454 magnum v8. I winterized it and today when i went to get it ready for the water, it started and all seemed to to be OK. I checked to see if both exsausts were putting out water and one side seemed to be great and the other minimal. Temp rose quick and i shut down. I did notice a difference in temp between the two.
Still learning and would appreciate any help.

Start a new thread in the proper engine and drive manufacturer. Is it a open or closed cooling system? Get a diagram of the cooling system and follow the path. Give as much info as possible if you dont know how old the raw water pump impeller is start there, does it have a thru hull water pickup or a power steering oil cooler?
