RE: Show us your ER

We could start a new thread on electrical panels, but I'd be too embarrassed to post. Erik's looks great compared to mine.

RE: Show us your ER

Phil,**** So nice and I love almost everything about DDs and it looks like you may have a DD gen too. I see those air cleaners and that stack*** ....that baby must PUMP AIR.

*Erik,**** My wiring is a bit of a mess too but I have'nt got the balls to post a picture of it. That's a real Rand McNally boat you've got there. Seeing what you've done w other parts of the boat I've got high hopes.

Peter B,**** Every once in a while I see a pic of a Lehman that makes me admire them. Yours looks a bit like a Buick straight eight*** ...like them even more than the Detroit's.

From what little I've seen to date, it appears to be neat and organized.* S'pose that's an advantage of a new boat.

RE: Show us your ER

Goodonya Darrell. Brave man putting it up there like it is. Actually looks pretty honest really.
Erik, to be honest I actually forgot to take before pictures - truly - it was sort of like "there thats finished....oh bugger, forgot to take a before pic - damn". However, if you look at Darrell's, aka BaltimoreLurker's pics, and imagine even less paint on the header tank and rocker cover and exhaust manifold, and the rest about the same - that would be about it - the before pics I mean.

RE: Show us your ER

Thanks, Peter!* I am years from addressing the cosmetic issues on my boat.* But, I do have most of the crud out of the engine room.* And, you'll notice a couple nice upgrades in the pics; the dual, remote oil filters (by the PO) , the spin on fuel filters (by me, because the CAV's looked almost original), the coolant recovery tank from American Diesel,* and one you can't quite see - the air-filter fix as described by a MTOA member years ago, and the extra valve on the raw water intake that is very handy for ingesting anti-freeze when winterizing and could be used to assist dewatering in a last ditch effort to remain afloat.

I see you have the copper pipe from the air filter to the valve cover beather.

Suggest you get rid of the copper pip and replace it with all hose.

I know of one Lehman 120 owner who had this setup, and the copper pipe came loose, fell on the POS terminal of his starter, then shorted to the engine block. NOT GOOD !

I changed mine to all hose after hearing about this.

Since we are talking about that pipe. What is it for? It looks like such an akward arrangement to me.

RE: Show us your ER

Hmmm, I think mine has a section of hose when I think about it - better check. It is not quite clear in the photo I think. Hey, yes Darrell. I noticed those filter, and intake mods. I have thought of adding a Y valve and doing the same re raw water intake. I'll stick with the same oil filter. The fuel filters last me so long I'll stick with them as well for now. I'd go for spin-ons if I was going coastal but can't see that happening. The SO not keen. They've worked 36 yrs. However, I do want to improve the air filter and get rid of that oily sock arrangement. What mod has yours got for that?

RE: Show us your ER

Crankcase ventilation fumes are drawn from the valve cover to the air intake.

This way the fumes are recycled into the engine instead of buiding up in your boat.

Thats what I have been told.* JohnP

RE: Show us your ER

Oops - mine looks like copper pipe as well. Well as I said before, it has all lasted 36 yrs, but now the possibility of it falling off and doing nasty things has been raised it will of course be cursed, and Murphys law says......so as I intend to do something about the air-cleaner as well, and that is what this tube it attached to, it may as well be done together. That tube is a breather tube meant to re-cycle oil/fuel-fouled air back through the intake via the air-cleaner as a bit of a gesture to pollution control, for whoever asked.

RE: Show us your ER

Peter:

The air filter mod was amazingly simple.* I'll get a pic next time I'm at the boat.* But, basically, if you have the same starting arrangement as I had, you cut out the wire mesh cage and throw it away.* You're left with a top and bottom plate/disc.* There is a FRAM air filter (I'll get the number later) that fits near perfect between those 2 plates.* Get some 1/4" threaded rod, run 2 pieces, 180 degrees apart, through both plates, inside the FRAM paper element and secure top & bottom with locking nuts/washers.

Hard to describe in words, but a picture ...... you'll get the idea right away.* If you're a MTOA member you may find the article on the CD they sent when you joined.

RE: Show us your ER

Sounds good Darrell, but I'm not in MTOA. I actually wondered, after seeing some of the round but trapezoidal-shaped from side on filters on newer engines, if there might not be a paper filament element like that, which had the same neck/intake diameter as the nasty thing we have attached now, that would just attach directly to the round intake and sleeve onto it and tighten with a large hose clamp. I will look into it, but your way works, and I can visualize how it goes, so the filter element number would be useful to have, thanks.
