    I just bought this same model boat a few weeks ago. I have not had it on the water yet, I had to pull the engine to replace the steering cable.

    I havn't had a solid #2 since my wife said maybe have some water instead of another beer. In my opinion the "DO NOT DRINK THE LAKE WATER" signs need to have "JUST HAVE ANOTHER BEER" added to them. Just sayin'

    Ok! Sounds like the tanks should be good to go! I went through this process on my boat, port side kept being restricted. Then an AH HA moment at the lake happened. The port side flowed perfect, thought I had finally killed the demons until I hit the switch for the starboard tank. %$&#@ starving for fuel. I had had some work done on the motor and the mechanic switched inlet hoses to opposite sides of the tank selector valve(electronic). Turns out the valve wasn't opening all the way on one side. Don't know if it was crud or just faulty (NEW) valve but the first spring trip of the year should tell if everything is finally good. Good luck!

    I have a well kept 78' Tahiti with original saddle tanks. It recently sat for 8 or 9 years and the fuel pickup in one of the tanks is severely restricted. I have removed all the old gas, check valve at the top, tried back flowing into tank with compressed air in conjunction with carb. cleaner, denatured alcohol, even diesel. At first the line was completely blocked, now slight flow under pressure. I can not remove the pickup tube without removing the gas tank which is fiber glassed in and I would rather not disturb it. The only other solvent I can think of is the chem tool carb. soaking chemical which is stronger than spray can carb. cleaner. Because of the small opening at the top, I figure there is just a small screen at the end of the tube that has varnished up? Any thoughts or suggestions? Eric

    AG6 started a thread Never saw this on CNN in Wide Open
    I’m wondering why we rarely see stuff like this on CNN, but they have no issues on reports of false stories being told..... hummmm:4_6_2v: You gotta love those that fight for our Freedoms and those who don’t have the resources to fight back!!! PS...that’s not gonna buff out!! https://youtu.be/qiHpYZen-oY

    He ran this setup with a gas 460, but the 1250 on the PTO does not make sense when I look up parts. Odd problem. Tom mentioned a spacer, but never saw one advertised and he never gave me one.

    https://sacramento.craigslist.org/boa/d/1978-hawaiian-polynesian/6500209677.html Some of you might remember this boat. I did an extensive "fix up" to include trailer, inside bilge, new motor, new carpet, stereo, etc. Really nice boat. Putting together money for the race car!!!
