Re: cleaning edlebrock carbs

There are some carburetor cleaning solutions that come in a 5 gallon bucket with a colander-like tray for parts that you dip into the solution. The one I have will definitely get aluminum looking bright and shiny. You have to be really careful what you put in there -- it will destroy gaskets and sea...

Re: Why is Horn switch 12v- on 10mtr

Not having the schematics, I am guessing the high water alarm activates by completing a circuit to 12V ground. If that is the case, the horn switch would also be wired that way.

Re: Help with Water Tank access on 1980 F30 Sport Cruiser

I don't put antifreeze in either my water tanks or my water heater. I bypass the heater and drain it through the cold water fill line at the bottom of the heater. I also run the house water pump until the tanks are dry and then disconnect the pump from the tanks. Using compressed air, I blow out all...

Re: 10 meter Express New Dash/Console Project

An oscillating tool might work if the access is good. There are some release agents available that might also help.

Re: Lithium House Bank Batteries

Thanks, the reason I asked is that I was told you can't charge two batteries off one alternator, because if only one battery is discharged and one full the alternator/voltage regulator is charging both and you need a split charging system. You can do this using an ACR: https://www.bluesea.com/suppo...

Re: Hollow keel stink

Chlorine is a strong oxidant, so go carefully. It will accelerate rust on anything in the bilge. I do not use it anywhere in the interior of my boat except in the sealed waste treatment unit.

I would never use it on a regular basis!

Re: Trojan F44 Raw Waterpump question

Our F-36 with 440's has an aftermarket fresh water cooling system from Sen-Dure which uses the D55 for a circulation pump, so take this with a grain of salt! Both D55 pumps are mounted in the same orientation on the right side of each engine, and I SUSPECT this is true of the more standard configur...

Re: blower motor

By the time you are getting that noise, the blower motor is most likely ready to fail and oil will not repair the damage to the bearings. I would replace it before it fails and you are left without a working blower to vent the engine compartment before starting.
