Re: Oil Filter Gasket Leak

The gasket kit was ordered and should be here by the end of the week. I'm assuming that I will not need to drain the oil to remove the oil filter adapter and replace the gaskets. Since the oil filter holds 1 quart I will be down a quart that I will need to add but I think that will be it. Thanks aga...

Re: Oil Filter Gasket Leak

I found this oil filter adapter gasket set on Beacons's website.

I'm assuming this is what I need. Can anyone confirm?

Re: Oil Filter Gasket Leak

I purchased my Mobil M1-301A oil filter at Walmart today. I looked at several M1-301A filters on the shelf. Some of the rubber gaskets were much thinner than others. On one filter the rubber gasket was barely past the metal canister. The rubber gasket on the filter I chose extended significantly pas...

Oil Filter Gasket Leak

The oil filter gasket is leaking on my Chrysler LM318. I use Mobil M1-301A filters. I plan on changing the oil and filter this Saturday. Hopefully that will fix the leak. Is there anything I should be looking for when I change the oil filter? I know to make sure the old gasket is off and I clean the...

Re: Trojan F26 Express question

The Trojan F26 has 5 degrees of deadrise. Most ocean going boats have 18 to 21 degrees of deadrise. With a relatively flat bottom the F26 is not designed for rough water. I wouldn't use an F26 on plane in waves that are more than 2 feet, but if you are off plane at displacement speed you can probabl...

Re: Sherwood Double Pocket Pump Cams

The new Sherwood D60 pump is painted and the pulley is installed. I could not get it to pump water spinning it by hand, but when I put water in the top it does not run through it. The water fills up the top outlet and overflows. I think that's a good sign. I'm installing the pump tomorrow and if eve...

Re: ☀️NEW AND EXCITED PLEASE HELP! 73 Trojan

Nice looking boat. My boat would shake at higher rpms until I had my propeller reconditioned. If the propeller is not true it can generate a lot of vibration once you start increasing the rpms.

Re: Sherwood Double Pocket Pump Cams

After doing further research I decided to paint the pump. Bronze does not corrode when exposed to oxygen but it will corrode when exposed to chlorides such as salt water. Because of this I'll paint the bronze to protect it.

Re: Sherwood Double Pocket Pump Cams

What exact problems are you having ? The pump impellers are spinning but no suction is being created. My water intake was completely clogged by sticks, leaves, etc. and the pump hasn't worked since. I shut the engine down as soon as I saw the temperature rising but I think the blockage of the water...

Re: Sherwood Double Pocket Pump Cams

I ordered a Sherwood D60 water pump. The Sherwood D60 has the same external dimensions as my current pump but with improved internal seals, bearings, etc. I'll install it next weekend. The Sherwood D60 is made of bronze. I am planning to install the pump unpainted. Is there a reason I should paint i...
