  4. what prep and primer to use on engine components?

    I am planning to paint my 38 years old Detroit Diesels 6-71s for the first time since new. There are few rusty spots mainly around the anchoring points and on the transmission and very few bolts. I could replace the bolts with galvanized ones but what treatment (after mechanically wire brushing...

  6. 22KW Kilopak problem

    On a friends boat changing oil this fall we had the generator running to warm it up. There was no load on it and after about 5 min it went "pop" and I saw a flash and smelled the dreaded burnt electrical smell. He ran up to shut it down and noticed the volt meter pegged out as high as it would...

  9. DD 8v71s and 8v92s info

    Afternoon all, Being doing a little research on the specs, history, and reputation of these engines. The general impression I'm getting is that they are noisy, tend to smoke, leak oil regularly, and need to be rebuilt about every 2000 hours. On the positive side, parts availability and prices...

  10. Thoughts on this Hatteras for sale...?

    Does anyone know about this Hatteras 56' listed on Yacht World? It appears to have some water damage in the aft main deck coming from the ceiling and also from around the aft windows. Some wood rot as well in the area. A survey would defiantly be needed before any serous consideration but if...

  11. Raw water Shower Heads

    While changing the hoses at our 1978 J&T 6-71N Shower Heads I see the inside surfaces are heavily corroded. I tried to see the business end with a small mechanics mirror but could not. We are not having any cooling issues at this time. Our Heads are the 90 degree bolt-on model and J&T has them (now...

  13. Cat 3208 average hours to rebuild

    Hello everyone, I am placing an offer on a 1986 36 Sedan. It has the 3208T's rated at 320HP. There are no hour meters on the bridge and I am still researching if the clocks are located as Hatteras states they should be on the battery switch panel. The genset is showing 6,000 hours with a...

  15. Engine room air box vents

    I was talking to a friend who has a 1978 53’ that has finns on the exterior of his air box’s. Mine is a 1980 and does not have them or have signs of them ever being there. My question is are they standard in all 53’ models or was it stopped in 1979? Thanks in advance

  16. Carolina Classic "Built by Hatteras"

    Does anyone know what boat this actually is or have any other information about it? The broker did't give much detail about it other than "it is what it is." I looked at the model brochures link and did't see anything that looked like this boat. Was it a custom build? I don't believe ...

  18. Naiad lower seal replacement

    Today I was able to replace both lower seals on my Naiads. It was a pretty easy job with help from Mark (Airpilot). First we pulled the fins: Then we pulled off the seal retainers and the seals. The trick here is use a dry wall screw to get a grip on the seal and then pull them out with a...

  20. Hatteras oem interior hardware

    can anyone tell me where to get the square drive oval head screws used in the interior of Hatteras yachts? I know there is a $300.00 screw kit at Sams but there should be another source to get these. Any thoughts?
