Re: Flushing engine after use - how do you do it?

So undo pipe and flush through with hosepipe on threaded end? That's it. Your garden hose should be a tight fit over the exposed threads on the stub. Turn on your hose and watch all the water squirt out the water inlets. Smear some marine grease around the threads as you fit the water outlet back o...

Re: Flushing engine after use - how do you do it?

You don't have to run the engine when flushing. As stelios said, Undo the nut that holds the water outlet pipe on top of the engine block between the fuel tank and flywheel.

Re: Little Forty F341

Its hard to say by the pics, But what if you just shaved the cyl head down enough till its a flat machined surface. Would the piston come up and hit the combustion chamber :?: .

Re: AD 27212

Pulled the barrel of tonight and have noticed there is no lockwire around the big-end screws. Did some motors come without the wire.
