  1. Universal 25 loses power

    Gear & Maintenance
    I have an '87 Newport 33 with a Universal 25 with electric fuel pump that has developed a nasty habit of suddenly (usually after 30 ' or so of running perfectly) losing RPM's and dying. I have polished the fuel, replaced the Racor filter, the spin on filter, and bled the lines but the problem...

    Re: Mirage 26. Does anyone know fuel capacity?
  3. Volvo Penta MD7A fuel problem

    Diesel
    Hello everybody, I'm having problems with my volvo penta (surprise). After fueling up at the gas dock, the engine started right back up, ran for about 5 seconds, and then died. Wouldn't start back up but cranks fine. I've replaced all filters, and vented the fuel system. The problem now is I...
  4. Mount above-deck gas tank below-deck?

    Gear & Maintenance
    On a new-to-me Cal 27, the p.o. installed an outboard engine to keep sailing despite a dead inboard (which I intend to remove). He just kept the gas tank sitting on the cockpit floor full time. Needless to say, I find this arrangement dissatisfying. Long term, I'll probably install a new...
  5. A portable fuel can that doesn't STINK!

    Gear & Maintenance
    Has anyone found a portable 5 gallon fuel can that doesn't stink ... Literally an figuratively? One that doesn't leak, is easy to pour, and doesn't try to incorporate some failing technology? I'm looking for a diesel can, but if it only comes in red, I will write "diesel" all over it.
  6. Biogas Producing Holding Tank

    Gear & Maintenance
    Hey, I've been thinking how it could be a good use of a holding tank, to collect the biogas that it produces, and use it for heating or cooking. Making and using biogas is even more environmentally friendly than doing aerobic composting, while also providing a useful resource. Depending on...
  7. Does anyone know GPH for a Yamaha 6ph (4stroke)?

    We are planning for a quick trip to Grand Isle (about 80 miles) from the lake, and we need a little help figuring out how much gas to bring. So, Does anyone know GPH use for a Yamaha 6hp (4stroke) 2008 model. We will be sailing/motor-sailing in my 1996 Hunter 23.5 Thanks for the help Todd...
  8. Yamaha 9.9 fuel issue

    Gear & Maintenance
    My outboard will not pull fuel into the carburetor. I have changed all fuel lines, diaphragms and rebuilt the carburetor. The only thing I did do was put a larger filter on the engine but was assured if the filter would fit within the casing, it was fine. The engine runs as long as I or my...
