Re: Petter AC1WM - Any other owners? Tips and tricks?
I had one on my Catalina 27 in the mid 80's. Engine was reliable, except that the salt water got the aluminum head, which killed it...
I remember there were was a spring washer that created the seal between the fuel injector and the head. You were supposed to replace it any time you removed the injector. Might be good to have a few of those around.
Enjoy your engine. Sounded like the African Queen!
