Re: One Less Trojan

If you could message me your email or post it here that'd be great just in case I need to run some questions by you in the futur...

Re: One Less Trojan

Sorry to hear about that. Due to the the age and book value of our boats its easy to be totaled even if the damage is not that bad . Have you thought about buying it Back ? During the thunderstorm a tree (not a branch but a whole tree) was washed into the river. The tree then became lodged under ou...

One Less Trojan

I regret to inform everyone that The Dog House is no more. A few weeks ago The Dog House was damaged in a severe thunderstorm while tied to the dock. The insurance company declared the boat a total loss. The boat had a good 48 year run, but I guess nothing lasts forever. :cry: I want to thank everyo...

Re: water flow

For a RH engine, looking at the water pump from the front (pulley) side, the hose inlets and outlets should be vertical on the left side of the pump. The inlets are on the bottom of the pump and the outlets are on the top of the pump.

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...
