Re: Getting ahead of myself

Jim, congrats!
On your engine, I have basically the same one. (5416) Looks like you have an Oberdorfer pump for the R/W You will need the THIN paper gasket, and OEM impeller. the GLOBE impellers won't work. (too short) Interesting water injection elbow there.. seems 2 B an after market install?

When the boat starts motoring almost guaranteed the sludge will stir up and start clogging the fuel filter/s Suggest knowing how to change them and bleed the engine when (not if) they clog. The 5416 is easy to bleed.

good luck!

Re: Getting ahead of myself

Not a problem Jim, I'm paying it forward for when I go cruising (putting points in Vigor's black box if you know the reference).

I can likely help with rental car drop off's too, that depends on timing.

Check your chart, docking at my house can save money, but not time. Rock Hall for the weekend can get expensive, and you'll burn a hour getting out and around the bar at Swan.
I'm 45 minutes up river from the bay, about 18 hours from me to Cape May if you time the tides right.

Re: Getting ahead of myself

Denise,
Thanks for the info. I'm going to show my ignorance - I believe the 5416 is supposed to be fresh water cooled. Does the raw water cool the fresh water, which in turn cools the engine?

I'm looking forward to talking to the surveyor. I hope to learn a lot about the configuration when I'm there. I also need to start reading the manual - that's on my list for this evening.

Re: Getting ahead of myself

Jim the RW is pumped into a heat exchanger that cools the engine coolant via transfer. It's the cylinder thingy on the back of your engine. Has 4 hoses going to and from

Re: Getting ahead of myself

I'm happy now, I thought I owned the most inaccessible motor in the world.

Re: Getting ahead of myself

Tall rig with lead or regular with iron?

From the 1/25/2011 CW article....

<<
Beneath the waterline, the boat has a long, shallow keel, and the rudder is mounted on a partial skeg.

While the hull is solid fiberglass, the deck is cored with end-grain balsa. ....Ballast is internal and is either cast iron (as part of the standard rig) or lead (for the tall rig)....
Under sail, the boat accelerates quickly, but windward performance is hampered by its wide beam and shoal draft. Although the 31 will tack through about 90 degrees and is extraordinarily stiff and sails almost level, it makes noticeable leeway. Its best points of sail are off the wind....
....a prospective buyer should examine the keel cavity for signs of a hard grounding, especially on boats with cast-iron ballast. If a break in the outer skin has let in water, the cast iron can suffer significant and costly corrosion....

Re: Getting ahead of myself

Good question. I believe it is the standard rig, which would make it an encapsulated steel keel.

I'll be sure to have the surveyor check the keel cavity!

Re: Getting ahead of myself

Jim,
We are pulling my 5416 in the next couple weeks, I am repowering with a Beta motor becasue I plan on cruising the boat and my new to me boat is under powered with the 5416, well that and its not running. Several people have worked on it, some of the parts are in boxes and I want to go sailing and not spend weekends playing mechanic.

Actually I am just trying to get my 10 posts in so I can view the links on this site.
