  1. Re: anyine got an easy way to flush a p/s system of water?

    So, from now on you'll be checking your fittings and pumps more frequently, right? I highly recommend using a Water Witch as your bilge switch. Has no moving parts, cannot jam or clog and will detect...

    Rather than begin a new thread every time a different symptom of the same problem occurs, please post in the original thread so that there is a clear picture of what you have done.

    Re: Engine swapping compatibility?

    Fuel is like number 45 on the top 100 expenses of boat ownership. I would just accept that as part of the fun.

    I'd pull the heads off that engine. You probably need a set of head gaskets and have...
  4. Re: Does one use an electric outboard motor while fishing?

    Welcome!
    They are not fast. If you don't mind walking speed, then yes. They are capable of getting you up on plane but you'll run out of battery mighty quick.
  5. Re: looking for an alternative to 8M6000623 - water pressure Sensor

    There are bazillions of these available cheap. Amazon and Ebay have them. None are OEM, so you may get a good one or maybe not. I assume you are having a bit of sticker shock at the $165 price tag...
  6. Re: Should Carb. settings be the same for a 350 and 350 Magnum engine?

    I'll bet that repairing that gasket does the trick.
    This is just my 2 cents but I don't trust "rebuilt" carbs from anyone except the original manufacturer and it has to have a warranty. Burned too...

    Re: 5.7 mercruiser with water in cylinders

    The Mercruiser owner's manual is pretty specific about how you do this. Do you have it? If not you can get one online in .pdf format. They tell you to use the engine's circulating pump to flush the...

    Re: 5.7 mercruiser with water in cylinders

    There are two ways to winterize. Method one, which I prefer, is to drain all the water out of everything until it is "dry" inside. Since there's nothing to freeze, there's zero risk of damage. Method...

    Re: V8 Mercruiser Cutting Off During Idle

    Now every time I fix something, it's just something else immediately wrong

    Plastic tank should be removed for repair. It can be welded up good as new.
  12. Re: Coast Guard warning about E-15 fuel thand to our dim witted president

    Oh, by the way, @Bt Doctor, if you're gonna call someone dim-witted, you should def run a spell check on your statement first.
  13. Re: Coast Guard warning about E-15 fuel thand to our dim witted president

    E-15 is brought to you by ADM, ConAgra and big agriculture. It's apparently not enough that we pay subsidies to farmers to not grow corn. Refusing to buy it won't make the legislation go away.

    Re: Volvo aq131a water in oil pan

    Yeh the trouble with pontoons is not much reserve bouyancy. Again, your best option is to simply not put the bow up on the bank. I am guessing you do that to make it easy for guests to get on and...

    Re: Volvo aq131a water in oil pan

    If the exhaust system is below the water line, seawater will flow in and fill the exhaust manifold. If there's any overlap, that is, where one or more exhaust valves are slightly open, then of course...

    Re: Volvo aq131a water in oil pan

    Then you should check to see if the top of the exhaust system remains below the water line with the boat beached. If that's the case, then yes there is a clear pathway for water to enter the engine....

    Re: Volvo aq131a water in oil pan

    You might pull the cylinder head off and see if it is merely a bad head gasket, but chances are that the block is cracked. I believe the correct term for the condition of your engine is "toast". They...

    Re: 1977 Mercruiser steering problem

    100 percent no bueno. You might want to get that spare drive as the one you have must be busted. The steering arm is connected to a shaft with splined ends. It is possible that the gimbal ring could...
