Re: Home made exhaust riser - mixing elbow

I'm doing the same project using the same web site for reference. Going to get started as soon as my new exhaust flange arrives. Planning a basically identical setup, maybe just a little more rise.

Re: What's the most absurd seller statement you've heard

"Just needs a carb rebuild".

Yeah...what...for it to have a rebuilt carb?

Re: Fuel in oil - where to start?

Hard to say. Looks production, but the boat is 40 years old, so who knows what's been done to it. It's not a good setup regardless...it just defies too much of the proper exhaust theory I've read...

Re: Fuel in oil - where to start?

In case anyone's following this...here's the latest.

Took the head and exhaust manifold off, both look sound. I'm 99% sure I'm the victim of a poorly designed exhaust system. With the exception...

Re: Fuel in oil - where to start?

Re: Fuel in oil - where to start?

PO winterized with antifreeze...only so many places it can come from and all are expensive. Going to pull the engine in the next few weeks and see what we got.

Re: Fuel in oil - where to start?

I have some of the mystery goo in a jar to see what happens. So far it hasn't separated. I've got some water detection paste coming that should answer the question for good.

Hey Paul-

No, old pump has been removed and the hole was covered with a bracket for the new one.

OK...carb is off and rebuild kit is ordered from Sweden (sheesh). There was quite a bit of varnish and the main gasket was ripped.

Now that I'm into it more, I don't have a good feeling about...

Re: Looking to purchase a Cal 33 - questions

I was looking at a Cal 30, and the 30-2 was the later, 2nd version of the original 30. Like a mark II.

Good luck!

Re: Fuel in oil - where to start?

Thanks guys...I'm going to mess with that fuel pump and probably send the carb off for rebuild if that doesn't work.

Re: Fuel in oil - where to start?

Compression checked out good...95/105. Praise the Lord!

So now I'm thinking way too much fuel is being delivered. The spark plug threads were soaked with fuel, and it hasn't run in two weeks. ...

Re: Project Phasing Help Needed

Re: Project Phasing Help Needed

Tim-

Yes, I've learned that. Have three rolls on the way from Maine Sail.

If you remove a fitting that uses butyl, can you reuse it or do you have to retape it?

Sage advice Ulladh and Tim. Thanks for your input.
