Re: Ammarine oil spec recommendations

I also have two 1976 Ammarines 6404. Blew a head gasket nine years ago and while they had everything apart I opted for new injectors all around. What amazed my mechanic, who grew up on John Deere tractor diesels, was that with over 4000 hours the piston sleeves still had the original score marks fro...

Best water supply lines.

Thinking about getting rid of the old black hot and cold water supply lines. Got me to wondering what Grand Banks is using in their new boats. I am currently thinking Pex for both hot and cold. Can anyone educate me as to what material is the latest and greatest for a project like this?

Re: Ammarine 404 Mount Identification

I have attached two PDF files that may assist you in identifying your Ammarine motor mounts. If not I would contact the company and provide your pictures and engine specifications and see if they can assist.

Re: Water on side decks

This is a problem typically experienced on 36' and 42' GB Classics that have had their teak decks removed and then fiber glassed. It puts the finished deck below the skuppers and also reveals a low spot. Have this issue with my boat and have yet to figure out a draining solution. Currently I just br...

Can you give me any information regarding the auxiliary solenoid in the pictures below. A friend has a 42 GB MY and this one is gebusted. :shock: His boat is located in Holland and he lives in Germany so getting a new one is difficult for him. The solenoid has four wires and I assume the body is the...

Steady Sail from 42 GB Cl

I have a steady sail at home off of my '76 GBCL. I have never used it and now that I have installed a pipe davit and removed my boom I will never use it. I have not measured it but if there is any interest I can certainly do that. No idea what it is worth but will consider any offer plus shipping. P...

Re: Battery Charger Replacement

I am on my third battery charger. I had the original 40 amp Sentry, two 40 amp ProMariner, and now I have a 60 amp 1260 ABSCO. The ABSCO has been a great charger, reasonably priced at West Marine, and has reduced charging time considerably. I am attaching the owners manual FYI.
