drain

    Hi Guys Any reason why I couldn't do the above? Certainly would make oil changes easier. Something small like a 1/4" npt magnet plug?

    folks, i recently purchased a 2007 25 rage. My question to the forum, the on board inset cooler holder that sits in front of the pilots knees, can you continuously drain your cooler in this location? Where will the water go? Thanks for any feed back. JG

    Whats everyones take on welding the weep holes closed on a set of headers that are heading to the Cerakote shop to get coated. They just dump water all over both sides of where I like to keep stuff dry i'm hauling around is the reason i'm considering this. If I didn't store stuff there i'd just...

    Just curious if anyone drains the water out of your block if you have aluminum heads? What about the dreaded electrolysis or corrosion? Would you drain the water every time or just in the off season?

    Hi, question for those smart on basset headers please. The drain plug hole at the bottom, mid pipe, i just plugged it today. (this is unrelated to the main injection system, this is a hole half way down the main/upper pipe at 6:00 position) the main injection system does have an overboard drain...

    On the Mercruiser Gen VI 496 MAG with closed loop cooling, there are four connectors (appear to be quick disconnect) fittings at the manifold on top, two on port and two on starboard (at the sea water and power steering pumps). Need to find out how to reconnect the air hoses. Are the connectors...

    When I pulled my motor apart I had a good deal of electrolysis going on with my aluminum heads. It seems like some where I read most of that happens while the boat is sitting on the trailer. Seems the obvious thing would be to drain the block every time...???? Or would the block itself tend to...

    I have a 2004 496 HO with the easy water drain system. The sytem no longer works when you pump it full of air and now the engine is blowing water out of the drain system valves when I am under way. I mean alot of water. Enough to sink the boat if it went unnoticed.The problem does not exist as...

    On a cylinder head that has crappy drainback or if you just wanted to route the oil back to the pan through exterior lines where is a good place to dump it back into the pan? I see Schmitt is doing this on the engines with the heads I run and I see why. Its a win win situation. So I'm going to...

    Im a newbie, currently restoring my first boat. I just noticed about a 1" hole on the outside bottom right corner of my berkley jet. Looks like some kind of drain, but I think it goes through the hull. Does it need a plug or what?

    Do they make a drain plug for a BBF that has a valve that you can hook a rubber hose or something to, to drain the oil? I don't wanna have to hassle with a pump and all that stuff. Thanks
