Did you use pre-mix antifreeze or concentrated antifreeze.

I'm sure you know this but concentrated antifreeze has to be mixed or it gels. That usually happens around -20 or more. When it gels...

That part might be non existent. If you note the size of the fitting coming out of exhaust manifold, that is the typical size used. So take it off from the manifold and go to a hardware store and...

Generally they come out. Gently working them back and forth, both directions is a good policy removing any bolt you think might be rusted in place.

Hey CRUX,
I would make the call and replace that pan if you can get one. That one is done and to actually fix it you should remove it anyway. I wouldn't go for a JB weld patch, that's just...

Ok, the pan does need an overhaul though. As I see it in the sling your oil might be tipped forward. If you have removed oil you won't see it either because even the weight of the oil itself would...

Nice Job.

You did a good job on the boat. Really impressed that you took the hull down and faired etc and then put inter-protect on it prior to painting. I did a similar refit on a C&C 30 in 2007 and rarely...

Agree with the guys. It appears you need an oil pan. Still pretty cool where you are but in all honesty I've been working on my boat here in Halifax all winter. No one ever called me normal though....

I'd be more worried about fuel condition, if it was stabilized, how much was in the tank and subsequent condensation / water buildup. A year is a long time on the fuel we get these days.
