Main Message Board / Kubota References
« on: December 15, 2002, 10:38:24 AM »
 For your searches, check the spelling of Kubota.
 I don't know if the M25XP has a different Kubota #, but it should.
 I also copied this from another website:
 ´╗┐Kubota vs M-25

 Catalina 30.
 I am reading a lot about Kubota tractor parts working on a M-25 engine.
 Is there an equivalent Kubota engine number for the M-25?

 I don't have the Kubota #, I believe those #s are still state secrets.

Main Message Board / Got Heat?
« on: December 08, 2002, 10:04:40 AM »
 The way you get heat out of 38 degree water in the winter is the same way you get cooling out of your heat pump on your boat (or your car's air conditioner) when it's 95 or 100 degrees outside during the summer.
 Only backwards...

Has anyone installed one?  
 If so, what brand?  
 Centralized or decentralized (modular)?  
 Where did you install it and what piping was associated with it.
 What reasons led to the installation?

Main Message Board / Spreader Block Mounting
« on: October 28, 2002, 12:14:38 PM »
Whatever you choose to do, remember about dissimilar metals.
 When we had our mast down last year, I had to clean up around the rivets.
 Suggest you use lanocote on whatver you choose to use for mounting the block.
 Don't know if ours came from Catalina that way or if the PO did it, but both port and starboard halyard blocjks are still working after 14 years. ;)

 What a great idea.  Thanks so much.
 I suggest that you contact Mark Elkin, our Projects and FAQ associate webmaster.  His email address is on the main website.
 He can post them on the main site for everyone's use, either by creating a new heading (like, "Manuals") or in the History section.
 Thanks again.

Main Message Board / Lots of Input
« on: October 30, 2002, 09:44:48 AM »
Check out the section at the top of the FAQ part of the main website entitled "Why we are Catalina these!"
 The reaon they appear to cost so much is that most people keep them in pristine condition.  It will take a lot of looking to find a "fixer upper."  It has been done.
 Good luck, you've made the right choice.

Bonnie was kind enough to forward the pictures to me.
 I sent them on yesterday to Mark Elkin for posting on the Projects page.

Main Message Board / And to get the heavy motor on to the dinghy???
« on: October 20, 2002, 12:18:53 PM »
That's the big trick, regardless of where you hang or store the motor (Al Watson used to lay his inside the port locker, and used the tang on the aft end of his boom to rig a vang to lift it onto the dinghy).
 We bought the Garhauer lifting rig, and are absolutely pleased with it.  It's the least expensive, and best built unit available.
 Plus, by re-reeving the 6:1 vang through the block before it hits the cam cleat,  I can drop the motor into the dinghy by myself (only if necessary if no crew is available) under complete control.
 So, what do you folks with these behemoth engine do to move the four strokes onto and off your dinghies?

 Sounds like a great idea.
 Would it be possible to send some photos to Mark Elkin for the Project section of the 'site?
 Boat's're gettin' older
 Pulpit's kinda thin
 Motors gettin' heavier
 Any seas I'm in
 Still it's good to have it there
 Sailboat' sometimes slow
 Dinghy lift's all set up now
 Dinghy, plane and GO

Main Message Board / Oil for Diesels
« on: November 02, 2002, 08:52:52 AM »
 Marine stores usually don't carry it.
 Just go to an automotive store, like Kragen's, Pep Boys, Napa, etc.
 You can also use synthetic oil.  Many advantages, although a bit more expensive.

 Doing this for a friend who bought a new regulator and wants to wait to upgrade the alternator.  Short term, but his choice.
 I assume that by "disconnecting" the old internal regulator, you simply mean taking the wires off the alternator posts from the "slapped on the back of the alternator" old regulator.  And, of course, protecting the old ring terminals of the old wires.
 Mexico's sounding really good right now.... :D

Main Message Board / Old Stock Alternator - New 3 Stage Regulator
« on: October 31, 2002, 07:14:09 PM »
Has anybody done this?  Put a newer three stage regulator on an old stock 55 amp Motorola alternator?  
 Or do you have to get a new alternator with no internal regulation?
