Re: Twin engine, dual battery hookup on F 36

I believe the batteries are always put in parallel when starting the engines and the emergency start switch is actually a backup system in case the rectifier that parallels the batteries fails. Here is a picture of our boat on a travel lift with the factory specified locations circled in red. The tr...

Re: Cappy's f32 rehab

If you don't have a gas/water separator in your fuel system, adding one would be a good idea. Have you found a gasoline-rated vacuum gauge to accompany them? They have them for diesel. Otherwise, how can you determine filter performance? I haven't personally looked, but have heard from others they ...

Re: Cappy's f32 rehab

If you don't have a gas/water separator in your fuel system, adding one would be a good idea. We use Racor's 320 series filters with an aluminum bowl that you can periodically check to see if water has been captured.

Re: Considering 36 Tri Cabin

I'm 6' 3" and have been on a friend's tri cabin. I don't remember ducking in the salon or aft cabin, but its been a few months and I wasn't focusing on the headroom. Hopefully one of the folks who actually owns one will answer with a more accurate response. There is about 6' 5" of headroom in the ce...

Re: overheating 440.

You should not have to put soap in the pump every time you use it. The only time I use soap is when I am putting the impeller back into the pump body, and then only if I am having trouble getting it in.

Re: overheating 440.

Where does that hose that is hot come from and where does it go? If the heads, elbows and manifolds are staying cool, they are fine and probably not in need of service. Half of your dual pocket pump is functioning as your circulation pump. The other half of the pump is pushing cool water through you...

Re: overheating 440.

Have you followed the path of the water, checking temperatures with an infrared heat gun? Sometimes that will tell you the location of your problem. You can get a cheap one at Harbor Freight or go for a better quality one with laser spot indications of where you are taking the temperature. The more ...

Re: water flow

We have 440s with aftermarket Sen-Dure fresh water cooling. Their system is a bit different in that the raw water pump is a single pump and the engine mounted circulation pump is replaced by the belt driven dual pump that is normally seen on a raw water application. Raw water comes from the single p...

Re: water flow

If you are chasing an overheating problem, an infrared heat gun can help you follow the water circuit and see where the temperature increases.
