    Anyone have these?

    Sorry, havin a time getting photos to post on this forum.... Really could be upgraded considering the usability of other forums i'm on is sooooo much better. Anyway, see the attached link for an idea of how I'm using the hull huggr's. I got some stainless washers and wood screws and just screwed it into the finger dock and let it hang down. I installed them towards the stern up to about midway so I only need one length on each side and the ropes keep the bow from hitting the docks. Then I've got the thicker single 36" at the bow/head of my slip installed the same way.... http://i1157.photobucket.com/albums/p598/David_Chesky/C224C554-B524-4F9A-9BC6-39206EE172FF.jpg

    My marina allows as long as we remove them at the end of each season. No big deal - 7 or 8 stainless wood screws each side and it’s done.

    Those are the ones I'm using. I screwed them into the dock on both sides and they hang over just above the water line. No need for bumpers at all. I'll take some photos this weekend.

    I think you're looking at the wrong ones.... They've got the wrong picture on amazon actually - the hull hugr's i'm using are 7.5 ' long by 15" wide so i hung them along the finger dock on both sides of my slip and my boat fits in nicely in between. I'll take some photos this weekend and post em.

    Stumble on cold start after tune up...

    IAC filter? It’s a valve isn’t it. And symptoms would be erratic idle or rpm which i am not experiencing. Nothing I’ve read regarding IAC valve resembles what my motor is doing. But maybe it’s on its way out. Time will tell. Oil was just changed and levels are perfect.

    Stumble on cold start after tune up...

    Fuel pressure is good I think... 50-52 at idle on the rail and 12 steady on the low pressure. Nothing loose and all lines are connected firmly. Started up cold without stalling but still stumbles and sounds like a vacuum leak somewhere but clears up pretty much right away. Weird... guess I’ll just have to live with it.

    Yep thanks. Planning to check fuel pressure and all vacuum lines tonight. On my way over to the marina now. I’m located on Lake Hopatcong in northern New Jersey. Thanks for the help!

    I've got one 3' installed along the front and used the 7.5' x 15" hull hugr's on each side towards the stern. Really works nicely to keep the hull protected and I don't have to use bumpers.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0000AY0AE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00SMDQWAY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Stumble on cold start after tune up...

    Not sure... The boat overall has had very little use - I bought it this past winter with 139 hours total; its an 04'.... The block was purchased/installed in 2016 (confirmed by Michigan Motorz) but not sure how many hours it had when it was installed. Don't think too many cause it wasn't used all that much. I've put about 10 hours on it so far. Prior to the tune up i just performed, It didn't have this stumble....

    Stumble on cold start after tune up...

    Thanks for the reply... plugs are brand new and it did the same when I had the 41-101 in there yesterday. Changed them out for the 41-993 today and same thing. Checked the gap of each plug before I installed so I don’t think it’s that. If one of those sensors where bad wouldn’t it affect overall performance or throw and alarm? Same of the plugs or wires were bad; I’d think that would affect its running characterstics more than just at a cold start. Unfortunately I don’t have a diacom or similar or access to one.... seems like the injectors aren’t stayin open long enough at cold start or something. Doesn’t the ecu control how long the injectors stay on at a cold start? Think that’s how it works in a car...

    Stumble on cold start after tune up...

    No choke circuit. It’s fuel injected.
  12. So went back out this evening to change out the plugs to what Michigan Motorz recommended. I had put in AC Delco 41-101 and called them to make sure hey were the right ones and they told me they’re hotter and to change them out to 41-993. Thought they were essentially the same but whatever...Previous to this I did a full tune up... and replaced fuel pressure regulator which had a bunch of gunk in the screen. now when I start cold, the motor fires right up, idles down and sounds like it wants to die, then catches and clears itself up. It’s done this both times I’ve had it out on the water and on muffs after the tune up. Sounds like a vacuum leak somewhere at first but then clears up. After it warms to operating temp, it runs great. No stumbling at all, gets up on plane better than ever and no issue up to 4800 rpm. What could be causing the stumble at the cold start?thanks. 2004 Volvo 5.0gxi-D w Michigan motorz block in 2016 thx

    Spark Plug Difference - AC DELCO 41-110 vs. 41-993

    Bt Doctur, don’t think the MR43’s are recommended for this motor... different application.

    Spark Plug Difference - AC DELCO 41-110 vs. 41-993

    Wasn’t doing this before the tune up which is why I’m suspecting the plugs, but ok.... oh btw marina sells premium only. Don’t think I’ll be pulling the boat every time I fill and from what I understand, knock usually is a result of low octane, not high.
  15. Any difference between the AC Delco 41-110 and 41-993? I just called Michigan Motorz (I've got a replacement block installed in 2016) to get their recommendation and the tech support said that the 41-110 was a hotter plug and recommended I use the 41-993.... The guy that sold me the 41-110 plugs said there's no difference so wanted the forums take on this. A little background, bought the boat over winter - 2004 Sunesta 234 w/ Volvo 5.0 GXI (replacement block in 2016). Ran great for the first 10 hours I put on it, then suddenly stalled out on me... Had to get towed in and brought it home to diagnose. Found that it hadn't had a tune up in what looked like ever... so i replaced the dizzy cap, rotor, wires, plugs, fuel pressure regulator (junk on the screen that I couldn't clean off well enough), oil/filter change and fuel filter to make sure no water (there was none). Once all this was replaced, she fired right up and runs great - better than before now but I think I'm hearing a slight ping/knock - see video link So if the 41-110 are in fact hotter, would that possibly be the cause of the knock i'm hearing? Thanks
