I have an OB - so I got nothin' for you. Except, of course, don't smoke while you're working.
..might solve your problem, and would be a good investment in reliability, gas or diesel. The smallest size with a drain and clear bowl is what you need.Does anybody have any experience with removing the 17 gal fuel tank from a 1980 Catalina 27? I'm not sure if I'm getting water in my tank, or if it's dying from the inside out and needs to be replaced. Going to go mess with it tomorrow. Don't want to blow myself up. I didn't see any vent on the side of the hull, so I guess I'll find out where it goes tomorrow. Also going to cut some of filters in half to see what kinda stuff is in them.
Can you get the tank out through the hatch without cutting it (the hatch or the tank)? It looks like it might fit thru. Not looking forward to working on this! But having an unreliable iron genny is a drag!
My tank came out the cockpit locker in one piece - tight fit though.I know this is a VERY old thread - mitiempo, when you replaced your tank, how did you do it? Did you have to cut it out, or cut through the quarter berth to get it out?
