A Lesson In Being Gentle

Posted in Boat Building & Maintenance by Joseph Moore on March 22, 2010

Take the fuel tank off an old Archimedes Penta outboard and give it a fresh coat of paint and a wash out. Simple, right? Would be if the fuel valve outlet hadn’t sheared off. In fairness, I wasn’t being that heavy handed; it was really really corroded. Anyone know where I can get a new one (or something resembling it) from?

Seacat Marine seem to hold a lot of spares for the Penta 3.9hp engine but surprise surprise no fuel valves. I could do with a service kit for the Bing carburettor while I’m at it…
