Thanks. I am going to pick some up today. Liquid wrench did not help at all!


I got excited when I was taking the tank out the other day and did not mark what hose went where on the fuel water separator. Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

Can anyone help me with my airhead mistake. I need to know which hose goes to which side of the fuel water separator. I got way to excited when I was ripping the boat apart and forgot to mark stuff.


Since I am at a stand still wailing for parts I decided to start detailing the exterior... Here are some teaser progress pictures.




Don't mind the area behind the light. I have not got to that area yet haha.

Yup looks luscious. I would try to help with the separator but I only know where my fuel filter is. Haven't had to look for anything else in the system!

Well hit my first real bump in th road yesterday. I was supposed to be starting it up today until I decided to check the distributor. This is what I found...





Pretty annoying because once electrical things pop up my knowledge goes to zero. I ordered a new one this morning. Now I have to find someone to help me install it and get the timing right.
