And I'm having a hard time locating a transom seal, exhaust elbow gasket/seal and the two rubber gaskets for the lower transom anode bolts.

General Discussion / Packajet 455 Log Exhaust Manifold Removal
« Last post by Rsthurin on Today at 10:18:14 AM »
Hello,

I am going to replace my exhaust manifold gaskets as it seems one of the manifolds has loosened off quite a bit! I can't find any documentation of the best way to remove these. It looks like I have to remove the riser and reach in the manifold to get the bolts?  Or is there a different way to access them?

Thanks for the help!

I'll have to make an intro thread soon, too busy trying to get this boat running right!

I've still been working hard at it, but nothing as transformationas as a new paint job. Veneered dash, holes cut, new gauges, new switches, new steering system and wheel. Speedometer, voltmeter, and fuel gauge hooked up and operational. Still working on tach and temp gauge. Have water pressure gauge but may wait to get that one done. Wife complained about lack of storage last season, so replaced 12gal bow tank with dual 7gal custom aluminum tanks at the stern, wired with electric switchover valve. Dual batteries with dual circuit isolator system wired in. Slow going, but I'm getting there. Trying to be on the water this weekend, but that to do list is awfully long still!

Not sure what is wrong with it, but $1k for a boat/g trailer is a good deal.  Personally, I'd buy it, swap trailers, then do a bit of cleaning/tune and re list.   Could end up with a free trailer.   Even if you bought storage for a couple months, you'd still end up well.   As for reasonable price for G trailer, depends on condition, and of course you want it.  $750-1500

I agree, you should be able to resell and get your money back. If you don't have room to store it then auction it off at Crankyape in Hastings after the trailer swap.

Gold member?  Nice looking craft, great job on the finish.  The best products do cost a bit more, and I've found them to be a bit more agressive than less expensive products, I assume because they are made for commercial use in production, body and detail shops?
