  1. Converting a fuel tank from diesel to gasoline

    Engines
    Picked up an 77' Islander 30 and the diesel motor has been removed and an outboard installed. Anyone know any reason the original existing fuel tank (likely aluminum I suspect that's what they put in back then, correct me if Im wrong please) can't be used for gasoline for the outboard? (I'll...
  2. replacement fuel tank for 9.9 Johnson Sailmaster

    Gear & Maintenance
    I'm told I need to replace the fuel tank for my old Johnson 9.9 sailmaster outboard. I burn little fuel during the season so something like a 3 gallon tank would do. The tanks I have looked at such as the brp 5008625 do not appear to mate with the two prong OMC fitting on my fuel line. So the...

  4. Fouled Fuel Tank

    Gear & Maintenance
    I bought a Scanmar 35 in Norfolk back in May and motor sailed her 180 miles to her new home near Chestertown.

  6. Replacing Fuel Tank in E32

    Endeavour
    It's apparent that the fuel tank in our 1982 E32 has a leak. Not going to entertain the how and why- other than it's old, has been on the hard the last couple of years- and at least one of those two years bilge water was left and froze solid. In any event- it's time to take action. I have read...
  7. Diesel Keel Tank Replacement

    Gear & Maintenance
    I am contemplating the purchase of a 40 year-old center cockpit 42' fibreglass ketch project boat. The diesel engine and diesel generator both need to be rebuilt as the boat dragged onto the marsh during a hurricane and then took-on some water at high tide. Since both have to come out of the...
