  2. Exhaust bolts

    While cleaning up the engine room I noticed one of the four bolts that hold the elbow to the turbo was missing and another had worked its way half out on one of my new 330b's. The engines have only 70hrs. Question: Will regular locktite work? or is there some sort of hi temp stuff that will help...

  3. 8V92 Blower leak

    I have developed an oil leak on my port 550hp 8V92TI. It is coming out from under the rear outboard side of the blower. I removed the airbox and the airbox has oil residue in it and the blower gears also have a slight oil residue on them. My question is do I have bad seals on the blower? Can a...

  5. Preparing the hull for painting

    Will be hauling my 43' Hatteras DCMY within the next few weeks to be painted. We will be preparing it and had planned on sanding it and then roll and tip painting 0 it.

  8. fuel consumption DD 671 N's

    I have a 80 model 43'FBDC with DD671 N's, I think J&T rated at 310hp. WOT is a honest 2500 RPM which is what they are rated for under load. My question is at what RPM would this boat need to run to be the most efficient under the following circumstances? I will be going upstream on the Miss....

  9. 671TI noise

    I just finished complete cooling system service, hose replacement and commissioning of the 671TI's in our 37. On startup of the starboard engine I hear a slight whine type noise at the front of the engine around the crank pulley. Seems to catch up with engine speed but not directly proportional to...

  13. kudos for Groco

    Last week, as I was getting ready to move onto my boat for a week, my freshwater pump quit. It is a Groco WSP-80, about a year old. Groco replaced it for free last year as an previous Groco system stopped working with a blown electric motor. I called Groco at 4pm on a Friday afternoon. A guy...

  15. Raw Water Pump

    Anyone know a relatively inexpensive source for a raw water pump for a DD 4-53? My mechanic says it'll cost about $1,000 for him to rebuild it. Seems like there ought to be someone who rebuilds them in bulk cheaper but I haven't found them. Mine is shooting about a pencil sized stream of water...

  17. Engine Issues

    Okay....we took my 32ft 1985 FB out for the first run of the season. Round trip only about 50nm. 2nm from the inlet, on the way back, we heard a manging noise that seems to be a lifting rod on the port engine. We haven't opened her up yet to take a look inside but will next weekend. The engines...

  19. Comparisons

    I posted about my engine issues. I decided to most likely rebuild the current crusaders but I talked with some people and decided for the heck of it to look into repowering with diesel. I was considering Yanmar because of the weight and what I hear about them. A salesperson brought up an...

  20. Here's my final plan... With Some Questions

    Well I decided to take the advice of many of you and rebuild the 454 crusaders in my 1985 32ft FB. The main reason is that I can salvage my season. The rebuilding job at a well known speed shop in my area, who also does work for many boat dealers in the are, has told me it will take two weeks and...
