"I added  the controllable jib cars, great addition. Took two tries to get them machined correctly for the T flange track. Caps are a simple screw on, Sam Longhawk B43 Hull #9"

teleflex engine control problems

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

Adjustable Jib Cars

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.

As soon as i get to the boat, I will send you a few pics. Although the fuel and electrical wiring are now hidden under hte floor in the port cockpit locker.

Hi Gary

Sorry, obvious mistake on my part there, have a look atwww.yachtconosur.com under modifications.

The unit took less than a couple of hours to fit but you do need to take a couple of things with you in the way of tools, however the most important will be the cleaning agent.

Any questions feel free to ping me an email on crew@yachtconosur.com too

"Mike - great information!  I was hoping that there is a way to remove the wood grills. What type of tool did you find worked that didn’t damage the wood?  "

"Cam, keeping the coils clean is essential to max efficiency for both units. For whatever reason our 43 required constant upkeep to keep the coils clean. The wood grates are glued on but can be removed if you work at it using a tool that won't…"
