Re: Happy Birthday America

Happy Independence Day to you too! Let us not forget that today's celebration is a direct result of private individuals who brought their personally owned unregistered, unserialized, untraceable firearms to fight what had become a tyrannical, oppressive government bent on disarming the people. https...

Re: Backfiring above 2500 rpms

With 2 filters ahead of it, i dont know how it ever gets crap in it, but it does.

Re: Backfiring above 2500 rpms

Assuming you didnt skip a link on the timing chain, backfiring means too lean. How are your fuel filters? Filter could clog suddenly and pass enough fuel to run at low speeds, but not at higher speeds.

Re: mid cabin fuel filters

I added 10 micron water separating filters on the engine room forward bulkhead in my tricabin, right near the fuel manifold, which i also updated. Prior to that, my first fuel filter was mounted on the rear of the engine. I refreshed the engine-mounted filter, then figured that the new filters would...

Re: 10.8 Trojan Fresh Water Mystery

And you'll want to do something about the two loose wires encumbering the bilge pump float switch.

Glad your mystery is solved.

Re: Bay Bridge Swim 2019

I cant post the video, but here is a screen cap of some of the ride home. Note towel over the gauges, and note how the wiper didnt hardly sweep the water as it passed through the deluge. Never green water over the bow, but no shortage of white water over the canvas. Yee ha! Last leg outta the bay wa...

Re: Hydraulic Rudder Control or lack there of

No power steering, per se. Your arms pump fluid when they turn the wheel. Think of hydraulic steering as easy to run mechanical cables, nothing more.

You said there was air. Is there oil visible in the sight glass on the transom-mounted reservoir?

Re: 12 meter mystery tank

I recall when the minuteman missile was being put in the titan silos. They were bigger than the older missles. The air force was recruiting skinny missle techs, so they could fit in the available space.

How about a kid, or skinny boat mechanic?
