    Where Can I Install This Fresh Water Pump?

    It may be because its a faucet pump for under a sink verses a fresh water pump that mounts in the bilge near the outlet for the tank?

    How do gears work

    That all depends on the control box. Some have a button to push in, some the handel pulls outward.If you post a pic of it it would help ID it.

    Drive Position

    No , I use 3M Weatherstrip adhesive on the rubber gasket , once the gasket is installed a very SMALL bit of black RTV between the gasket edge and housing edge

    Drive Position

    Yes, crank them ALL the way up till the hyd pump groans, I make more money that.way. A new gimbal housing and a new drive after the U joints explode Now if you want to keep some of that money , lower the drive to flush and raise it to trailer.

    Single Point Drain System Leak

    Unless your disconnecting the quick connect hoses at the block and probing the fitting your at risk for a cracked block because it did not drain at all

    2017 Signature 310 Coolant Leak

    too soon for a rusted water heater, The overflow reservoir though tells the story along with the coolant in the bilge. Is it full, or empty?

    small electric current in props

    you would not feel anything from prop to ground because the props are grounded. Being on a lift you may feel stray current from the lifts wiring

    Single Point Drain System Leak

    The pic I posted depicts a new copper item to replace the plastic water distribution valve/drain. I usually remove the 4 hose connection and insert a piece of copper in its place. I them remove the manifold drains and hose and replace them with the threaded elbow with the blue plug. The I remove the quick connect fitting in the block and replace them with the brass insert and blue plugs Having a lathe allow be to place a "indent" in the copper to hold the clamp on although I`ve never had a hose just come off a smooth piece either

    Single Point Drain System Leak

    All you need to do is remove the 4 hose connector or cut and cap it ? remove the block and manifold fittings and replace them I can put together a copper housing to eliminate the plastic junk one?

    2 new engines, overheat alarm

    Most if not all crate engines do not come with exaust manifolds attached so they were installed. You dont mention a FWC system so if its a raw water cooled system water enters the manifold and exits the elbow. Using the wrong gasket restricts the water flow out of the engine. I would ask specifically where his air leak was. With a crank mounted pump the volvo is under suction from the drive and if its sucking air its not pulling water. Get th correct answer and dont let them baffle you with you know what

    267 SSX Taking on water

    Are you operating the boat correctly meaning not slowing suddenly? should no be vents on the transom itself , sides of the boat maybe. Shouldnt the dealer be addressing this issue too?
