Re: She’s done but needs tuning!

bama are you running a battery ground cable close to the starter on the engine? No the case ground is lower L corner above the oil sump but that was my next thought, run a dedicated ground to rear bolt on starter. I also have yet to see my oil temp work which tells me the gauge needs a dedicated gr...

Re: She’s done but needs tuning!

Gotta clean some paint around the starter mount and/or replace start button, initially it would respond to the button being pushed, messed around test...

Re: Mechanical Fuel pump questions 220 GPU

The one that went bad was one bought from Schmidt by the previous owner put on within last 10 years. No worries, thanks for the help. I also have the facet electric fp just above the tank for priming and back up!

Re: Mechanical Fuel pump questions 220 GPU

Gotcha! I bit the bullet and got the Schmidt one, the slant 6 dodge would of worked but my motor mount was in the way, I’m gonna buy a used one and do what your were saying, then I have a back up pump, used for $30 on eBay less shipping. She’s up and breathing! Now to awlgrip on the sides of the hul...

Re: Mechanical Fuel pump questions 220 GPU

As such I appreciate the info! The round body of the pump side is where the pump developed a pin hole from pitting in the inside. I would love to rebuild it but unless I can replace the round part in pic below, originally it was a pin hole then as I roughed it to put JB weld to temporarily plug the...

Mechanical Fuel pump questions 220 GPU

:proud: After 6 months of rebuild time I was able to start the motor today, initially had to properly ground the mags to the case so it would shut off, then found a jet of fuel spraying off the oem style mech fuel pump, after closer inspection and scouring the pin hole opened up from corrosion on th...

Bamas, Glad it worked out for you. Did the finish come out like you wanted? Too bad you didn't have this weeks weather for the perfect painting conditions. :banghead: I painted the cage in that heat, it worked good! Finish on cage is nicer than seat structure but boats are good, seems durable and g...

On the cups the 4:1:10%:1 basically forget the extra 10% reduced and fill to next line for the last part correct? I don't quite understand the question??
