    He asked for it, he got it!

    trotterhayes, what engine does your boat have? Is it a jet drive?

    Buy a service manual for the jet unit and one for the engine you have.

    Or the easiest is to buy some beverages for a mechanic and have him take 5 minutes and show you the basics. The service manuals will still be worth the money down the line for you.

    Dateline bikinis and the bigger brother the Bounty were the old Ford Granada and Capri v6 engines on a PP jet.

    I would not have thought there were any left as the last time I saw one of those must be 40 years ago.

    Are you insecure and intimidated by normal people,-- you must be a bit short to need those.

    You are also a little short on forum rules and manners.


    If you cant get laid at 4 foot 6 I don't think 4 foot 7 will help you

    Effidekly isn't shown as a member on the members list, so maybe Jeff took care of him Frosty.
