Hi Dave - probably another boat.

I love sailing, but my next sail boat will be a Laser or something pure wet fun.

I'm looking at Grand Banks 32s very seriously now. The small cockpit and...

That's an old engine - notable for the cast valve cover, lack of oil fill, and carburetor - I can't date it from those features, but I'll bet someone here can.

Russ - I deleted the post - I think the elbow may be installed correctly, although it looks funny to those of us with pipe. It may have a leak internally however.

Fstued:

Nice work!

Almost by definition, electrical systems are grounded to the engine block. For the Atomic 4, the ground wire from the engine back to the starting battery or ground bus should at least...

Joe - that's the crux of the OP.

He HAD an outboard, it was stolen, and in costing a replacement realizes that it's similar money for a used or short block A4.
