I am having problems with my Teleflex engine control. It works fine controlling the throttle, mooves smoothly. But when the tranny is engaged the lever is very hard to move past 10:00 inf orwrd, or 2:00 in reverse. Once it passes that point it moves smoothly. And going from forwrd to reverse is especially difficult. I have a 2012 B40 with a Yanmar 53hp diesel.Any ideas?See More
"Wondering how your adjustable car project is going. They are on my list. I did buy a second pair of footblocks to stack on top of the ones for the jib sheets that have jammers. My thought was this would be a good place to run the…"
I am planning to add Garhauer adjustable jib cars on my B40. To do that I will have to remove the end caps on the jib tracks. I realize that the track itself is thru bolted, but was wondering whether the end caps are just screwed on, which will make removing them much easier. Any advice would be welcomed.See More
Gary, I saw your email about the swim platform hose but couldn't find a way to link to it so here goes. There are a few ways to get not that area but you'll need to be a contortionist to fit. The first is through the rope locker. I'd try this one first as you may be able to reach the hose and fitting with a little luck. Another way may be to remove the cockpit speaker that sits right in front of it. You may be able to reach in from there. A third option is to go in through the cockpit locker. There's a plywood panel that sits on the aft bulkhead that pops out easily. Crawling in that area is not easy but may be an option. Last but not least is through the propane locker. You'll need to remove the liner the tanks sit in to do so. Note that you'll likely have to disconnect the drain hose that's on the underside of the tank which means crawling in through that plywood panel as mentioned above. Probably the solenoid wires too. BTW make sure you run some pink antifreeze through it come fall when you winterize or you'll likely get to do the job again. Good luck.
"Thank you, Peter.
I will definitely try your suggestion. I had checked/cleaned the faucet screen (with no change), but I'd never considered the braided supply lines.
I'll try your suggestion and publish the results.
"I had a similar experience and after removing the faucet screen and removing a lot of calcium chips the low flow still remained. I found the blockage was in the smaller stainless braided lines that go from the semi rigid plumbing up into the…"
I am looking for a plumbing schematic for the fresh water system on a BEN OC 43 2-cabin version.The issue I am having is with water pressure to the galley sink. There is good pressure (hot and cold) to forward and aft heads and the cockpit shower, but galley sink is weak.I am thinking the following:- air in the line (proved this isn't the issue)- line routing and distance- clog in delta-facet or facet fittings, etc.- distribution manifoldThoughts and recommendations are welcome, but I want to…See More
Yes I thought my backstays were loose as well and paid a rigger to to check tensions and inspect all fittings. To my surprise he informed me the person who stepped my mast did a perfect job of tensions and rigging and made no changes. Of…"
