Re: Running engine without RW input

I wouldn’t do it. Worst way to warm up an engine is at idle under no load conditions. It is far better (healthier) to warm up any engine under light load. It will warm up faster and result in less...

Re: Awlgrip, Gelcoat, or Epoxy

Re: Fuel leaking into oil crankcase

Check if retainers (#12) are tight. These sometimes loosen if HP injection lines are loosened without holding the retainer with a second wrench. If not tight fuel will bypass internally in the HP...

Re: Simrad gear, best offer before going to the bump

I’m interested for cost of shipping to Canada if you could let me know what that might be. Thanks in advance.

Re: bowman heat exchanger venting

Height of the expansion tank does not matter. Mine is midway between the engine mount and the pressure cap. Same for the one I installed on my 1969 Dodge pickup. Both work just fine. Air will find...

Re: Alberg 30 keel repair

Our Alberg 30 had encapsulated steel ballast. It was the early version, Mark 1, easiest distinguishing feature from later versions was lack of spray hood for the sliding companionway hatch.

Re: I need to sorta replicate this part

El Pinguino is on the right track. Relatively easy to cut, taper edges, then set up and support in the desired configuration. Next connect across (on the backside) the resultant gaps with backing...

Re: Can I Turbo a Stock Diesel?

x2. Also consider the effect of added power on your existing drive. Will the transmission handle the added power or is it at the or near the limit of what it can handle. More power...more heat...more...
