Our engine wasn’t making Kevin happy. Last year we could only run it up to 1800 RPM’s without overheating. This year we overheated sitting at the dock. A call to Beta Engine’s in East Sound led him to check the output of the heat exchanger (which wasn’t good at all) and eventually tearing into the exchanger to check the condition. It was blocked by calcium, the common denominator for seashells and the buildup in our engine cooling system.
He was going to take it to a radiator shop until they quoted home $160.00 and 2 days! A treatment of muriatic acid for $3.89, some baking soda to neutralize it for $1.50 and a wooden dowel and the exchanger was as good as new! Now we have a gusher and overheating is hopefully a thing of the past!
It is a beautiful day, even my dog agrees!
He knows just how to get down this ramp every single time… unless he’s sick… or it’s too steep!
