View Full Version : This old Boat

Having a 32 year old boat you better be handy or rich.

Pulled the motors again to chase an oil leak, plus freshen them up a little (had them out 3 years ago also) ( (

Trans coolers, preventative as the old ones did not have zincs (

Cleaned all coolers and heat exchangers with muratic acid (

Team Yanmar, This kid is the best helper I've ever had. He is really invested in this project! (

All cleaned up and ready to roll. (oil leak was an Oring) ( ( (

Little bilge prep (

Dropping them back in (

Spoke too soon. This is how we spent our Saturday. Oil was hemorrhaging from in between the block and the bellhousing, Thought it blew the rear main seal ! (

luckily I could pull just the trans out just lifting the block a little bit and removing the exhaust ( (

There's an oil passage that runs out the back of the block and through the bellhousing ( ( (

.69 Cent part @ 8 hours labor !!:whackin: (

Got her fixed up in time to take the family to Rockport (

Good job Mike.
Luckily you can do those kind of repairs.
You would have lost the entire season if not.

With boats........It's always something.
Now go fishing.
