A4 for sale Grasonville MD

I saw this engine at Anchors and Oars ((410) 304-2013)
No knowledge of it other than looking at it, it seems to be very nice. They also have 2 junker engines outside.

I would *not* use fuel line. It normally runs at about 5 PSI. No need to bleed the gauge, it doesn't really matter if oil or air gets shoved up to the gauge.

Even if the hose blows up like a balloon the pressure should be the same at the other end. This does not make a lot of sense :confused:

You may want to find a better gauge. The connection should be a flare or maybe compression.

You need something rated for at least 300 PSI. Copper is common, but you need a flexible section between that and the engine. As mentioned, grease gun hose is a cheap way to acquire such a thing....

Unless it was synthetic oil specifically designed for wet clutches, i.e motorcycles, it is doing one hell of a job making things slippery in the transmission that won't work when slippery :eek:

I would stick with diesel or MMO as a cleanser and in either case a couple cans of SeaFoam will help. Both of them have some lubricating qualities as well as solvent/cleanser ability.

Actually marine life does not care about pink vs. green. Unless you plan to dump it some place where dogs, cats, or humans might drink it, don't worry about it. Fish don't care. It's a mammal thing ;)
