Saw your post on this on Yahoo groups and I can tell you that I'm still interested as I never did come up with a suitable design or technique to accomplish this great feature. If you are able to...

Leaking at the shaft seal tells me it's time to repack the "stuffing box" of our 83 Newport 28. I've found plenty of instructional help on the web for how to do it properly but I don't know the size...

Answer found - Pink sludge in bilge

Got a chance to go down to the boat Saturday. Aasem was right - it was diesel fuel. I had filled the tank 6-7 weeks ago and the tank design allowed the fuel to press up against the point that the...

You don't say what year your 28 is. I have a 1983 28 II with a 5411. It has what you call a lift canister, or water muffler built in sitting behind the engine up above the exit of the drive shaft. ...

More on the 5411 operating temperature

For Hellosailer and others - I agree that the engine is running too cold. The thermostat and sender are both new and tested. The temp gauge is also good and I'm able to check temp with an infrared...

I have a 1983 Newport 28 with a Universal 5411 (raw water cooled). It seems like the engine never gets higher than about 120 deg based on the temp gauge and an infrared thermometer - but the specs...
