    Hydraulic fittings

    ORB fittings may not be "special", but they are not a common fitting used by the material handling (forklifts), construction, (skid steers, backhoes, etc.) or lift gate industries. When I did my AP, I contacted 6 (six) hydraulic/fittings shops in the Chicago area and none of them carried ORB fittings because they are not used in the previously mentioned industries. In an effort to control inventory costs, many shops no longer stock what does not sell. Jay

    Hydraulic fittings

    The short answer is no I just went through installing a RM AP. Some of those fittings are what they call an ORB fitting which is a oddball size not to be found at any hydraulics shop. I spoke with Seastar and RM both before I just started searching the internet for answers What I ended up doing is buying a hose kit ( about $127.00) that had most of the hoses and fittings I needed. I actually used the old fittings I took out of the helm (when I installed the new hoses) to put in the hydraulic pump It was a real learning experience All of the Seastar hydraulic lines had those ORB fittings on them good luck Jay

    Dark plugs

    Internal combustion engines by design are not meant to idle for long periods of time and are prone to loading up due to combustion inefficiency. It is difficult to design an engine to produce power and efficiency @ 35 MPH and still be able to idle all day. Altering ignition timing or spark plug heat range will only lead to other issues such as overheating. A couple things you might be able to try are: Make sure that your air cleaner is absolutely pristine. More air equals cleaner combustion. Make sure you run good clean, fresh gasoline. Cheap gas has more impurities. Run the engine hard at the end of the day to burn the soot off the spark plugs If you do not already have an electronic ignition, you may want to look into changing over along with a new ignition coil. This will probably provide a better low RPM spark to enhance combustion. I have read good things about E3 spark plugs if they make them to fit your engine hope some of this helps Happy boating Jay
