Re: Plastic Fuel Tanks installed in a 1977 F-32 model 321

Its the fuel that makes the tank swell ( expand ) FYI, it does pretty much what the instructions say.I left a space around the bottom shelf it sits on and , a few small adjustments, the hard part was getting at the hold down fasteners as we had the waste tank, air conditioner etc all in the middle.

Re: Plastic Fuel Tanks installed in a 1977 F-32 model 321

Your tanks may be different , but on mine the hose pulled sideways on the plastic tank inlet fitting, so ran the hose thru the bulk head to get the drop right, with the appropriate chafe guarding of course, the only joint you really want is at the deck fitting and at the tank itself. After you run t...

Re: Windlass for 10 meter

Another vote for the Good. I installed the same one as RWS, even the same bow roller, worked flawlessly, nice equipment, quality parts, very nice family business to buy from and made in the US. Would not hesitate to buy again.

Re: 318 4 BBl carb

Just to add, your choke plate is fully open, but there is a small hanging tab on the linkage at the side which will not allow the four barrels to open when cold. Sometimes the tab is worn and sticks, have a look and watch the linkage as you work the throttle from closed to full open with the engine ...

Re: Plastic Fuel Tanks installed in a 1977 F-32 model 321

If you have the original deck fills, remove them from the boat, they come apart and you can screw a new correct fitting to it to fit the fill hose......access to the fuel fill hose connections is behind the aft panel in the side sliding storage areas.It is quite easy really, just cut the hose that j...

Re: 1987 F32 TEMP GAGE

Re: No Fuel Drawing From Tanks

Sounds like you may have air getting in from somewhere, that will defeat any fuel pump. Look along the fuel lines going back to the tanks for anything teed into the lines, check valves and fittings for tight, if you have a generator, where does the fuel line come from for it, are the empty tanks and...

Re: 10M 454 closed system overheating

Those hoses need to be installed at just the right angle on the riser to allow the water to swirl inside the hose to cool it.Sometimes people step on or sit on the hoses while working down there and push the hose down, just something to check if you have good flow from the riser as you say.

Re: 1981 F32 water tank problem

The water tank vent termination on our 78 was inside the boat attached to a support just behind the removable coaming panel Stbd side......only vents in the hull were gas tanks and holding tank.I can't imagine why you don't want to lift that back deck again.... :P
