Hey, I got a big bag full of slimy mechanic's wipes for ya right here!
Engine room in progress, just got interrupted by buying a house.
Probably our offer is insulting and the seller will self-defecate, and I won't have this new financial worry for long. Plus, my wife will stress me to death on all the mods she thinks she wants and I'll be done from this earth.
But, anyway, back to the thread...
I just need my shop-vac down there. I burned out my current boat shop-vac. Time for a new one or industrial strength one from home.
I'm thinking of replacing a bunch of the solenoid and other small semi-corroded wires before something leaves me stranded. Not sure how long my starter is good for either. How do I check it's efficiency/life-left?
Also - can I put more than one temperature sensor on the engine, digital? Has anyone done this? Also I want some kind of long-term data recording computer. I want an auto-log. Hours, temp, pressure, RPMs, fuel flow, fuel level, oil viscosity if I can get it. <OK, the coffee has kicked in, but seriously>. It's freaking 2013. Got to stop pretending it's 1967.
Got to also re-do the water system, main belt, and clean my heat exchanger.
