My dear armchair guru,
I see I must have offended you and I apologies. I was simply trying to target my question to sailors in certain cruising area. Not knowing where/what Pythagorean is certainly not important.
A petcock nut/bolt head
and/or a valve at the end the running hose certainly would be the first thing to tighten/shut off to solve this problem. However, this sucker has no such thing on the raw water
side. It has one on the fresh water coolant
side. but this is another gripe I have with this brand new engine
. It could certainly be a good topic for rants and raves on ďnew generation of Yanmar
enginesĒ not to mention missing alternator
cable from the starter. 😁😁😁
By the way mine turned out to be the Sea water drain cock. It was wrapped with masking tape and the hose barb it self is a petcock!!!!
Thank you very much for your note and please accept my sincere apologies.
