Re: Engine Fuse Blows When Cigar Lighter Used

Several years ago I had a puzzling problem that might be similar to yours. I had a switch (mine was a float switch to the bilge pump) wired directly (thru a fuse) to one of my two batteries and the bilge pump was also wired thru to a toggle switch on the dash (powered via the battery A/B switch). Wh...

Re: 1978 Outrage V-20 Drain Tube Replacement

I installed the drain tube and rolled the top edge. The drain tube was nearly perpendicular to the hull on the bottom side, but about 10-deg off perpendicular to the deck on top side. I was able to use the flange-tool for both rolled-edges but had to finish the top edge with a hammer and wooden-dowe...

Re: 1978 Outrage V-20 Drain Tube Replacement

To access the importance of the annealing process, I ran a test case. I rolled one edge of a test sample without using any annealing. The rolled edge seems perfect as was the previous one that used annealing with air cooling. Perhaps this type 260 brass from McMaster has sufficient ductility without...

Re: 1978 Outrage V-20 Drain Tube Replacement

Now it makes sense: at speed the thru-hull drain in the bow-anchor-locker is probably not under water, hence no need for the clam-shell vent. I removed the old brass drain tube. There was some wet foam and no wood in this area of the hull. The foam is not tight to the hole. There is about a 1-inch g...

Re: 1978 Outrage V-20 Drain Tube Replacement

Jim, thanks for your comments. It makes sense to roll the second edge of the brass-tube after inserting it into the tube-passage. I was confused about Jeff's comment to force the tube back thru the hole. The bunks on my trailer are carpeted, and these bunks can only contact the drain-tube-lip by sli...

1978 Outrage V-20 Drain Tube Replacement

Unfortunately, one of the bunks on my new float-on trailer damaged the outer lip of the drain tube that extends thru the hull from the bow anchor locker on my 1978 OUTRAVE V-20. After reading the excellent reference on replacing this brass drain tube , I have a three questions: --is it best to annea...
