  2. Using Detroits as Fuel Polishers

    I have about 200 gallons of year old diesel remaining in my 1100 gallon tank. My plan was to closely monitor the tank and run it down another 100 gallons before adding fuel. I noticed a bunch of soft tar balls settled in my Racor bowl and outside the filter. (No water thank goodness) I...

  4. Rear trans/engine mounts

    Iím trying to identify the make of these mounts. They are showing signs off wear and would like to replace them. They are on Detroit 6V92 with a Detroit transmission which I believe is a Twin Disc.

  5. 52 convertible listing to port?

    My new to me 1985 52c is listing to port a couple degrees. Prior owner stated that he removed the very heavy battery bank that was outboard and near the front of the starboard engine. New placement is a strip of 6 car sized batteries in the walkway between the engines and they are closer to...

  6. Radar Location

    Are there any issues with putting a dome radar on the overhang in front of the flybridge? Basically where the search light is, but in the center. It would be on a 9" or so pedestal. It's that or add an arch and put it up high. I realize higher is better, but lower is cheaper.:)

  7. DC Electrical Upgrade

    I'm a little nervous coming out electrically here, so to speak, so go easy on me. I am planning a modest upgrade to our battery and charging system. I have attached a diagram that shows approximately where things are and will be located in the engine room of our 43DC. The inverter set up is...

  8. DC voltage conversion

    I am considering converting the DC electrical on my 58YF from 32V to 24V. Anyone on the HOF like to offer any 'lessons learned' or other advise/opinion?? Also, there is a long DC terminal block on the forward bulkhead of my port engine room. I do not have a wiring diagram for this block and I...

  9. Raritan Elegance or Atlantes?

    I finally started building the new forward head (where the dinette used to be) and have decided not to rebuild the vacuflush I had in the old fwd head. By the time I rebuild the pump, seals, water valve and vac switch it will be over $500... I know many have been happy with the Atlantes heads...

  10. Ford Lehman engines in a Hatteras

    Iím looking at a 1976 48LRC. It is equipped with Ford Lehman 120ís. This is the only Hatteras I have seen with these engines. Was this an option or was this done custom? thanks DD

  11. Quick electrical question for you "technical historians"!

    ​Good Morning All: In my search for my next boat, I swore-off two things. As much as I love the big, old, Hatts, I said I would eliminate big thirsty complex engines with multiple turbos and 32VDC Systems. So, here's the question....how do I know which sizes, years and models have 32VDC...

I donít want to be cheap but I donít want to spend excess money on a davit. Iíve looked at some used davits and one might be a player. Itís...

  13. NEW TURBO Source

    Need to replace two Turbos on my 8V92TI's. Turbo housing "lip" where clamp connects it to exhaust collector/mixer is corroded. Any recommended suppliers - no core returns as my location makes core return economically unfeasible. Dieselpro has "NEW" ones online- but they can't confirm country...

  14. Splash Guard Access

    So, my 1972 43 foot double cabin had some damage done to her in a windstorm, before they pulled her out for the season. The starboard side splash guard needs to be replaced. My mechanic is unsure on how to access it, thinking that it is bolted through from the inside. It appears the gas tanks are...

  16. Stabilizer installation question.....

    Were all 53's reinforced when built where the stabilizers would mount whether so equipped or not? The 53MY I was on today had a pretty solid FRP "box" in the engine room which still had the mounting bracket of the fin on it. It looked like it was done at birth.... (fins and rest of system had...

  17. Galley Maid Head Pump Re-Plumination

    Some may recall I've mentioned the need to replace the aging 3/4" sea strainer to head pump hoses on Aslan. I wanted to also accomplish the eventual elimination of 2 of the three head intakes through this consolidation. Initially, my design called for a manifold and valves set-up. While that offers...

  18. Level of concern of Moisture findings on an Hatteras?

  19. Air handler freezing up

    Any idea why one air handler on our master stateroom would ice and not the other? Both are on the same compressor and seawater flow is good. I will mention that the last time we tried to use them as a heat pump the valve would not shuttle and it just cooled. The system was working well for weeks...

  20. Old Exhaust Shower Head

    Below is an exhaust mixer elbows off of my starboard engine that I removed several months ago while working on one of my turbos. Obviously it has seen better days. I suspect the others are in about the same condition. At the time, I looked around for a set of replacements and was finally...
