Re: diesel injector return line

I had my injectors on my 3HM35F rebuilt once. About 500 miles away from the shop that did it, I discovered one was leaking a small amount of fuel. I found a mechanic to look at it and we determined...

Re: corroding seacock drain plugs

I checked with Hamilton and they assure me that they are in fact bronze and not brass. They are also available from Fisheries Supply in Seattle and I see them listed on Amazon as well. ...

Re: corroding seacock drain plugs

Thank you Hopcar, that is what I have been thinking. The drain plug is centered on the ball, so it should be sealed from the outside. I am, however, certain that my plugs are bronze, not brass. At...

Re: corroding seacock drain plugs

Raindog, I agree the green comes from moisture, in my experience, salt water. Galvanic problems will turn it pink. My concern is that the leakage that is turning it green is caused by corrosion of...

Re: corroding seacock drain plugs

Oh yes, it was very clearly associated with the drain plug. It was concentrated around and below it. My bigger concern was that it was indicative of galvanic corrosion and was going to get worse,...

Re: Vetus Deck ventilator

I was able to free mine up by fashioning a square headed punch out of a carriage bolt to drive against the ring. I first tried a block of oak, but it wouldn't deliver a sharp enough blow to break it...

Re: Varnish removal: should I, could I?

I wish someone would develop a varnish or paint that all fell off at once. Instead a quarter of it falls off and the rest adheres tenaciously for years.

When I stripped mine, I didn't like using...

Re: Engine Access

I often do work in that area from that position. It works well.

Before I learned that technique, I once dropped a wrench that fell in under the shaft. While trying to retrieve it, I slipped...

Did those of you who cut access holes through the quarter berth have much interference with the scupper hose? It looks like it is right where I can put the hatch.

Re: Espar heat on 34

Yes, I have seen that one too, but with all the curves and such on a boat, calculating volume is non-trivial. My dealer is definitely an Espar marine dealer and probably the best in the area.
