Re: Thawing frozen engine

"you are not likely to have any damage." I would say the opposite. When water freezes, it expands the most in the first few degrees below the freezing point. So I suggest you start the next season...

Re: Thawing frozen engine

The area is closed in. One suggestion is to stuff a few 100 watt light bulbs into the compartment, and run them 24 hours a day. I also assume you are out of the water and the temperature isn't going...

Re: Canadian Maritimes, winter 2015

Re: Synthetic Motor Oil for my Diesel?

It used to be, not to use synthetic for two reasons. If you burn a lot of oil, it was expensive. But not now. The other reason is if the engine is shut down for long periods of time, like the winter,...

Re: J 37 vs J 37c

Re: Engine problem vs Improper functioning of the Prop

The prop became overpitched and the 125hp couldn't rev up past 1500 rpm.
Always check the cheapest repairs first (prop), before the ideas get too grand (turbo) and expensive.

Re: High out put alternator

Is 50 amp a possibility, since the 35 amp is not a problem? The 15hp has to send energy away from the prop, to drive it.
