Re: Barrelback 19 in Michigan

Don't have a line on anything at this time, but will keep your quest in my thoughts. I share the building bug, too. :lol:

Re: modified malahini

The cavitation plate on the motor should be about even with the bottom of the keel.

Re: modified malahini

I used the Yacht primer and WR-LPU on my Zip. Personally I would not sand it beyond 220. Sanding before top coat isn't required. The WR-LPU likes a little roughness to bite into. Sanding can be done as soon as it is cured in 24 hrs, if you want to. Make sure you paint the WR-LPU in cooler temps with...

Re: Intake Strainers

You are correct on the filter. That is the whole assembly and replacement cartridges are available. You are also correct on the fuel hose. That has been changed to A1 and A2 CG approved hose. I thought maybe someone might bring that up when I posted the picture. :lol: But also remember that this is ...

Re: Intake Strainers

Thank you! The black item is the fuel control cell and pump assembly. I think it is a GM part. It comes with the engine. The primary water separating filter is in line between that and the tank mounted on the stringer. Then engine and transmission ran about 17K and is all new and not rebuilt. It is ...

Re: Stephens Zip

I used a Japanese pull saw to cut notches. You can make multiple cuts and break the pieces out with a screw driver and then clean the notches out with a sharp chisel. Wait on the notches until you are ready to lay in the shears and chines so you can angle them based on the direction that the longitu...

Re: Intake Strainers

My engine was built from the ground up, by Crusader Marine, as a closed cooling system with external heat exchangers and exhaust system cooled by sea water and the engine block cooled internally by the closed loop using antifreeze. The main heat exchanger cools the antifreeze that runs through the b...

Re: Intake Strainers

I am using the Vetus strainer with great success. Easy to monitor for debris and clean. I sized it at 1-1/4" for the engine requirements and also use a 1-1/2" through hull intake strainer pickup. I have a closed cooling system with three heat exchangers and feel it is important to protect ...

Re: 1955 Mercury Mark 55

Do a search on google for manuals for service and parts. They are out there, some for free or pay to download. Get the part numbers for the items you may need and search the internet. You may get lucky. That is an old motor and parts get scarcer by the day. Ebay is a good start.

Good luck,

Roberta
