Top sirloin, baked beans, cream corn, home made au-gratin taters, garlic bread(goes with anything) and strawberry parfaits for dessert.
Well, the sirloin turned out tough, as usual >:((anybody got any tricks), and the parfaits turned into Halloween cupcakes, dont ask, just as good though.

In most cases air will get trapped in the bow letting it bob in the water like a fishing lure. Hook a tow rope to the bow eye and start dragging it until you can get it float a bit and start bailing water.
which is basically what happened but also pulled the bilge plug. And the boat was completely submerged standing on its whacker. Rope broke first time.

« on: October 03, 2011, 05:27:28 am »
I would use a ball valve, not a gate valve, and tape it's handle with some pretty bright tape if it doesn't already have a bright rubber handle so you can tell instantly from 10 feet or so away if it's open or closed. No need for intermediate settings, all you need is wide open and fully closed!  ;)

But yeah, use a small piece of hose from the drain plug to the valve, then another hose from the valve to reach out the transom plug. I WOULD secure all this so it don't flop around all the time you're out there running it. Most ball valves have threaded bosses you can use to make a stringer mount for it, and I'd also add a fitting to the end of the hose I could put a cap on when not draining it JIC the valve decides it't time to leak.

Thanks Ray.  :beer:

bring a timing light, i dont need one but good to reasure your where u need to be and it isnt something else your fighting.  if you dont have someone else figure it out im more than glad to try and help!
Nice, it should be just the timing Im after. Im gonna have to throw money at it to get any more out of her. Thanks Hondo.

Should be there between 10/11 Friday night. That would be sweet if 20 or so boats show. :thumbup:

Run the hose with a gate valve then a few more inches so u can get it thru the bilge hole. Just remember to close gatevalve  :banghead:
Thats the thing I dont like. I have a hard time remembering to close the block drain valves and I end up with a couple inches of water in the bilge before I get away from the ramp. :banghead:
Gonna go pull the oil plug right now. Wish me luck. Haha.

I have free drinks, either on the water or back at the Palms, for somebody with some engine knowledge to help me time my motor and give me some pointers on what I can do with this Ford to get a little more out of what I have now.

The timing is close but I think it needs some fine tuning. Ill bring the extra springs and weights for the dizzy and a light and anything else that may be useful.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Milodon oil pan thread?
« on: September 30, 2011, 08:24:50 pm »
By chance does anybody know the thread size of the oil plug for 10qt Milodon oil pan?
Ive been changing the oil through the dip stick tube but now the pump dosent want to suck it out now. So I would like to change to something like the fram plug or something else. Thanks in advance.
