Re: Universal M25 Knock?

I have read about but never had the water/injector problem, that I know of. If there is water in the tank It would be good to get it out before it goes into/thru your filter/separator. From the...

Re: Universal M25 Knock?

The more I think about the intermittent nature of the problem the more I think it may be an injector problem. When knocking and putting out excess smoke one of the injectors may not be producing a...

Re: Universal M25 Knock?

Well, that would be good. I wonder why one valve could be so far out of spec?
Has there been any work done before the problem surfaced?

Re: Music Etiquette at the Dock

Many things are done in private so as not to offend others. Making loud music or noise that other people didn't pay to hear should be one of them.

Re: Anchoring under sail

If you don't want to go up on the bow you can put a "tag" line on the anchor line, about a boat length out from the bow, back to the cockpit. Motor/sail upwind slightly off the wind/current, if any,...

Re: Universal M25 Knock?

As it "comes & goes" it may be a valve that is not closing all the way or debris/water lodging in an injector. Not much you can do if it is a valve except to take off the head & have a shop "service"...

Re: Sail up to reduce rolling?

We always flew 2 stabilizers, one would pull up while the other would dive. They really slowed down the roll action. Right, most crab boats I have seen had their puller mounted about 2/3rds of the...

Re: Music Etiquette at the Dock

It was extremely rude. Sometimes I think these kind of people are looking for a fight. "Look at me & my $80,000 boat" Mentality level = 5 years old.

Re: Sail up to reduce rolling?

Right, "Snap" is the right word. We only tried it a few times on the sailboat and gave it up. Some of the other commercial trollers around us used to fly a small, flat, triangular "sail" from their...

Yes, our experience with RDF on the boats was pretty vague, maybe because they moved around a lot? Worked pretty well at home, however. Ah yes, KABL

"Near the coast"? Very good and...

Re: Music Etiquette at the Dock

We get the wake boarders on our lakes also. They are maybe a small step above jet skiers. I think the speaker thing is an adolescent "Look at me" thing, like their big pickup trucks with huge tires...

Re: Sail up to reduce rolling?

Ah yes, looks like you are off the Marin coast? We tried moving the traveler all the way over and tightening the main sheet. It didn't "flog" so much but would "flap" somewhat with the roll of the...

Re: No neutral gear

Did the problem just occur or did it come on gradually? Oil level? Type of oil? Water in the oil? Any work just recently? Does it go solidly into forward & reverse with no slippage? Any change from...

Re: Williwa Southbound: Inside Passage Alaska to Puget Sound

It appears you are no longer in Hawaii. I followed your posts about coming down the coast sometime back. We fished the Rivers Inlet & Hakai Pass area many years. There was an old cannery in Goose Bay...

Re: Sail up to reduce rolling?

We used to fish out of our Coronado 25 in open ocean waters off of San Francisco. Often there was little or no wind but large chop & swell. The boat would roll a lot at trolling speed. We tried...

Re: Salts in the oil

If it is salt instead of coolant & the exhaust manifold is salt water cooled, the manifold may be leaking salt water into the ports? If you are not losing any coolant the only other source I can...

Re: Maintaining an outboard

With the bow of the boat to your right the carb will be about 2/3rds of the way back. At the very bottom of the carb there is a slotted screw, facing you. Just back the screw out, doesn't have to be...

One more time, integral tank motor, either new or used on Craigslist, then sell the old motor on Craigslist, easy. :D

Re: Appropriate Size cockpit tank for small outboard

Oh my, $500, after tax & shipping, for a 6 gallon tank. They are really proud of their product. For a little more he could buy a motor with an integral tank, & sell his existing motor.

Interesting, sounds like Yanmar doesn't want anybody to tinker with it.
