Re: 1987 F32 TEMP GAGE

140 is normal for an open cooling system and 180 is typical of a closed system. Do you have a closed system and if so could it be that you have the wrong thermostat in one engine?

Re: No Fuel Drawing From Tanks

Try cleaning the one way check valve. It looks like a brass coupling located close to the tank outlet. Also check the vents are clear of spider webs or other foreign matter. I would bet that this is the problem as we've seen it happen to several members on this site over the years. Clearing the che...

Re: 1971 F26 Front Window

I replaced my 2 front windows many years ago with 1/8" tinted Plexiglass, this thickness takes the curve of the window frames easily. I did not have the retainers to hold the windows into the frames so I bedded them with GE UltraGlaze SSG (I don't remember the number off hand but I can find if for y...

Re: Help me please

Martino,
Is there a chance that you have debris moving around in the bottom of the fuel tank that can intermittently obstruct the end of the pick up tube?

Re: 1977 F30 318 cuts off under load

Ok, glad that you found the problem. Now for the root cause; What was it clogged with? Does the tank need to be flushed?

Re: missing mystery part

I have these on my boat and they are made of teak. They are held in place with screws and are sealed to the deck with Life-Seal. Without these the water that runs down the gunnels would end up in the cockpit. If you don't like the teak, a piece of starboard would probably do the job nicely.

Re: 1977 F30 318 cuts off under load

Might want to check the anti-syphon valve at the suction tube on top of the tank. Since it's before the filter, debris tends to get caught up in it and can reduce fuel flow. I experienced this exact problem and the symptoms were that I could run all day under 1800 rpm however as soon as I got on pla...

Re: Engine sound deadening....

Hi Paul,

The material that I used is from "QL Marine Accessories" which is a division of Volvo Penta. These sound absorbent panels are available in several different thicknesses.

Hope this helps
