Re: Engine oil additive

Whoever would dispute WIX filters for the price (or otherwise) simply has not done the research.
They've been setting 'the standard' since before the radical bulk of those here were ever concerned with buying oil.

Re: Reduction unit

Can't answer that question exactly, but may be able to offer some insight anyway, depending on why you are asking. In the VERY beginning everything was hard drive. Then came the soft drive, which was more of an upgrade, not a replacement. Then over time, the popularity of the soft drive was such tha...

Re: Cadillac 472 Water Temp Sensor Location

The 'capillary tube' associated with remote temp gauges is actually a different critter than the plastic tubing you reference, which is used on pressure gauges. While that can be a valid concern at times with the plastic tubing, that is generally a pressure gauge consideration. Simply running that p...

Re: Cadillac 472 Water Temp Sensor Location

Nothing wrong with using electric; it's my preference to avoid the capillary tube alternative which can be a PIA. Nor is there anything wrong with using the vacuum switch port closer to the head, as that helps prevent the sender from swimming at times. It will read a little warmer than the original ...

Re: wrong prop

I am hesitant to say that was a mistake, but the odds are numerous that it will not be optimal for a 2:1 reduction. What is the advertised RPM range of the cam you currently have? If it is ???? -> 4800 RPMs, a 1.77 gear ratio would be a better RPM fit for your prop. However, be aware that a smaller ...

Re: wrong prop

Considering the desired end result, there is no question that is the preferred path to take if you have the means. :thumbleft: Given that course of action, the next biggest consideration to be aware of is that your cam needs to operate in the same range where your prop is the most productive using t...

Re: Gillileo 13' 6 "

Maybe you should list what repairs are needed that you don't have time to do. As long as it is in fact repairable, I would think that somebody with more time than yourself, could repair it more cost effectively than you could buy another hull. I'd be willing to bet there is more than one person 'rou...

Just a couple passing comments that I hope will help.
