    La Jolla

    Fished La Jolla yesterday afternoon (8-4-10). The water looked clean with the temp rising. Tried a couple spots mostly for mini macs and small calicos. I fished La jolla 3 times in the last 4 days and this was by far the slowest. A lot of good marks they just didn't want to bite. Still being on...

    Cat Motor

    I have a 1160 /3208 cat diesel motor for sale. It is in an old dump truck that I have had for over 15 years. I took it out of service in 2004 and I had replaced the motor in 2000. It has about 100,000 miles on it, and runs strong (these motors can run 500,000 miles). It is a 1160 but from what I...

    I am in the process of changing my gear oil on my 280 Volvo stern-drive and it got me to thinking. Is 80w90w gear oil the same? I know of the added cost because of it saying marine, but I have put 80w90w gear oil in semis transmissions for 25 years with no problem.I don't think those gears are...

    Starting of the season

    After months of maintenance on my boat it's just about ready to go. The season is looking good right now.

    Heat exchangers

    Any one clean heat exchangers? I heard soaking in murriac acid but not sure. Are there test's that I can do to make sure they are working the way they should while off the boat? I just did a valve job on my motor and don't want any damage to the heads. An air test for them? How? Thanks
