Re: New Exhaust

Cummins 6B5.9TA It is dry til the water injection :-)
Cooling this down in the short distance to the elbow is challenging as the spray pattern must be quite intense.

Re: New Exhaust

i had several hair line cracks and you could clearly see the effects of an attempt of sealing these by over tightening. It crushed the fiberglass which, of course, made matters worse. Stuff expands when hot and that was the primary issue I had to address. Other symptoms were bubbling of the hose and...

Re: New Exhaust

Make sure to use constant torque hose clamps at the elbow. I had an elbow actually crack due to temperature changes and traditional clamps (tee-bolt clamps or other).

Re: On board PC

For the router, depending on the service provider you have, Cradlepoint makes some great stuff. MBR1400 is good and will run on 12vdc. I prefer a nav system that is somewhat independent on ships systems when push comes to shove. Therefore it is a laptop which is plugged into a charger 99.9% of the t...

Re: Turbulator

Larry --
I found the brief write up I did sometime ago. See attachment.

I checked to see if the pump could be upgraded but the next larger one simply won't fit. Suffice it to say, i am stuck with the 15,000. sbmar.com is a great source of Cummins information as well.

Good Luck !
John

Re: Turbulator

I have done that -- actually had to place two of them in the exhaust after the riser/elbow; one at the top and one at the bottom of the short run before the elbow. It cured the problem of the elbow overheating and cracking. I did replace the hose with silicon high temp (the blue stuff) to further av...

I am a little more worried about malware as I have seen some interesting things come across from Little Ship's Skype account that were coincidental to this recent change...... and I know it wasn't Tom !!

Do you have a holding plate(s) or evaporator plate? '91 means it is likely your system is R12 which is hard to find ($$$$$) and you have to be 'licensed'. Changing the chemistry will require either the capillary tube or the TVX valve to be changed too, depending on the type. Mine failed last spring ...

Should be pretty close to the Sedan 8) I don't recall the exact dimensions, but when i had the boat on the trailer it was just around 13' to the top of the windscreen. I took the screen off and the driver wasn't too worried but we still had to have pace cars, and he took every exit just to avoid pro...

I am not sure but believe it is the larger size. The hose size is 1.25".

i'll try to remember and measure tomorrow when I am at the boat.
