My thoughts on paint...

... Can it be used to permanently afix your lower jaw to the upper one and perhaps paint all your fingers together?

Definitely want to use soap and water... the soap will help dissolve and wash away the organophosphate poisons.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

See PBooty, you can always count on Sailing Dog to answer your question and take a shot at me for being a lawyer. What were you asking again? I forget.

Rubber End Cap for Engine's Heat Exchanger

Ok, so I am going to remove the old end cap that is no longer good and buy a new one - I am pretty sure I can install it myself as it just hooks on with one of those silver circular deals that you screw on with a flathead screwdriver.

But the question is - how do I flush the salt water out of the system, so that it does not corrode the part of the engine that has the fresh water and coolant in it?

Suggestions? Offers of labor? Offers to cheer me on while I try my hand at mechanices (this will be entertaining and is likely to end in disaster, but that sounds fun to me!)

You don't say what make and model engine your boat has. That would help in eliciting advice regarding the heat exchanger setup.

By silver circular deals that you screw on with a flathead screwdriver—do you mean a HOSE CLAMP? If you want to know what I mean, see this page here:

You realize Sailing Dog that if she fixes the engine on that floating disaster she will leave the dock. Have you considered the citizens of California?

Yup... I live on the East Coast... so I'm not too worried... also, this will give her more options, when the inevitable Tsunami approaches and wipes out the west coast.

Thanks for the vote of confidence, guys.

And YES, I do mean hose clamp. But, by my wonderful description, you seem to have known what part I was talking about.

I have twin Chevy Crusader engines. I think they are called 270, but that is the model #, not the amount of horsies. The right one needs the new end cap and has some overheating issues, the left one has some battery problems, and a hard time starting up, backfires before it really gets going.

The owners said that they had repaired them, but they really just put a little band-aid on for the sea trial- they did not really get to the root of the problem. My neighbor said that they had the engines started and ready in the morning - so when I came out, the engines fired to right up and ran with no problems. Motorboaters really have NO morals!
