  1. This might explain marine engine rotation a bit better. Confusing as it may be rotation is judged looking at the flywheel not the front of the engine. Standard automotive rotation is actually a counter clock wise engine and a reverse rotation engine is clockwise rotation.
  2. Talk to the guys, and/or fill out there prop sizing & recommendation form @ Acme propeller's . Good people with a vast knowledge base. https://acmemarine.com/pages/contact-us
  3. All the above pretty much covers it. Some sort of positive dedicated antiphon valve inline to the kicker or a two way valve. Rule number one is don't solely rely on the primer bulb to do the job.
  4. Amazon if worse comes to worse
  5. Check the fitting size going into the separator and use a straight - tee to connect both the main fuel & antiphon to the kicker. It is normally 3/8 NPT thread.
  6. Recommended oil for that engine with a flat tappet camshaft was straight HD30W in this climate zone when it was built. Rotella T1 SAE30 would be my choice and can be bought at Tractor Supply or most automotive stores, or Mercurys 25w-40 oil. Both have additives to help reduce cam to lifter wear
  7. Docks aren't in yet but the channel is dug and in good shape.
  8. Be safe & put an anti siphon valve or dedicated one way check valve off the separator to the kicker or in the fuel hose to the kicker. Don't rely on just the inadequate check valve in the primer bulb alone. I have seen more than my share of blown or lean running main engines over the last 50+ years due to a faulty primer bulb.
  9. DEC reminds sunfish and crappie anglers that it is accepting comments on proposed regulation changes for these species through December 26, 2021. The proposals include: Reducing the sunfish statewide daily harvest limit from 50 to 25. Increasing the crappie statewide minimum size limit from 9 to 10 inches. Implementing an 8-inch minimum size limit and a daily harvest limit of 15 for sunfish in the following waters: Blydenburgh Lake (DEC Region 1), Lake Welch (Region 3), Canadarago Lake and Goodyear Lake (Region 4), Saratoga Lake (Region 5), Sixtown Pond and Red Lake (Region 6), Cazenovia Lake and Otisco Lake (Region 7), Honeoye Lake (Region 8), and Silver Lake (Region 9). Visit DEC's website for more information on sunfish and crappie management in New York. https://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/NYSDEC/bulletins/301185e

  11. On the port side, look in behind where the shift cable anchor is & pull the small hitch pin clip out. Push the shift anchor/cable end in under the carb to the port side of the engine & your shift rod will be released
  12. Walmart just put them up at 119.00 today too (Tactacam)
  13. "Raymarine auto pilot" covers a lot of territory. What model/unit is it & cable or hydraulic steering?

    Power steering pump bracket to pump I'd guess not knowing what particular engine hp or displacement your asking about.
  15. Unfortunately Harvey is going to be down for awhile. See my post here :
  16. Gary or Evan @ Eagle Welding & Machine 315-594-1845
  17. I have just talked with Harvey and he wanted me to let everyone know that unfortunately he's going to be out of commission probably until spring due to an unfortunate slip in the rain and a broken ankle.
  18. Raymarine discontinued the SportPilot some time ago and I wouldn't recommend buying a used one. There are other affordable units out there that will serve you well. Hyd or cable steer?
