I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to set up an easy hose hook up to run it on land easily, does any one have any great setups they'd like to recommend?
I replaced mine with a Sierra pump this year, but later found the actual part number RA057026 replacement for my engine which I’ll be purchasing soon. Not sure if this will help you https://skidim.com/sherwood-r-w-pump-crank-driven.html
Ordered some parts to make some more steps towards (hopefully) running it. Exhaust Manifold and riser gaskets, spark plugs, and belt.
Also ordered a cheap in-line fuel pump which I'm going to use to pump out the tanks (don't want to gunk up the real pump), along with Star-Tron Fuel Tank Cleaner which I'll splash into each tank around Wednesday night and let work its magic. I've read it works really well at cleaning the gunk out of tanks, as long as you are flushing them out (which I am).
The boat had 2 deep cycle batteries in it. They are from 2005 so they are 100% toast. I'm surprised it had deep cycle over starting batteries. Was going to start by picking up a Group 24 starting battery 1000 Marine Cranking Amps, 800 Cold Cranking Amps. Does this sound alright?
Unfortunately the engine has not run for about 15 years. It was winterized before it sat but I suppose with this length of time that doesn't matter much. I started working on pulling the plugs, but all are seized but one so far. The one I pulled actually looked decent. The boat only had ~250 hours on it. Unfortunately I've already snapped one of the plugs so that's turning into this coming weekend's project. It is a TBI engine
