    Hi Dave, moyers catalog has subtext on the propshaft couplers that say not reccomended for vdrives? Although my boat has a coupler just like the one on the site. I want to buy, but I'm not sure.

    Hi, Dave:

    Got your message. Don't know of anything unusual going on, but will keep an eye out. The forum software we use is very popular, and the bad guys are constantly pecking at it. We had a few attempted registrations from VietNam over the last couple of weeks. I check the IP address of every single applicant, and there are a few other safeguards built in as well. We try to keep the place spotless.

    Now if I could just rein in Hanley.....

    Simon, did he have water incursion? Is it the plunger/piston stuck in the bottom of the cavity? Has he cracked the carb open and what is he soaking in.

    Been out for many days as m work computer took a dump and my password was compromised. Just need to get it fixed. I may have it back on line this afternoon. I just saw your message this morning because I came up the hill. Been staying on the boat as it is closer to work.
    Perhaps a few answers and a phone call will help.

    Regards Dave _/) _/)

    I know live in the mountains and am still moving in and adjusting.

    I have a friend who is struggling with a marine carb issue and I immediately thought of you. Its a Carter AFB on a Mercruiser 7.4, 1995
    The accelerator pump shaft is frozen wide open. He's soaked it for two weeks, still stuck. He's wondering what next - a rebuilt carb is $400, new $800. Any suggestions gratefully appreciated.

    Scuppers, I made a new wooden one last year when I rewired the positive side of everytning to the panels and a complete rewire of the engine. Heck even my lights are brighter. I have tried to play on the Ericson forum but about everyother time I go on I need to reset or get a new password~tired of it.

    Hey Dave, I like this because I'm hoping never to make another. Our E35II's panel faded, cracked and delaminated. Send me a note here or Ericson forum.

    Not a clue, Dave. I'm just finishing up a week on the water. Will look into it when I'm back at the ranch.

    I was between the Belmont pier and the breakwater well east of the Queens Gate. I just installed the radio I picked up at Minnes for $10 from a friend. I have had good luck with this antenna set up. It's a 9' hi-gain sitting on a 4' mount. The nice thing is it works better than a shot masthead when healed and almost as good sitting up. Good to hear the radio is up to snuff.

    Where were you in the harbor when you called Sunday? I wanted to report to you that your transmission came through crystal clear even though I was in a forest of masts and no doubt had LA Harbor Warehouse #1 and the Lane Victory between us.
