    Starting Generator trips GFCI

    2014 Weekend Warrior with a 5500 Onan generator. Went to start it to get ready for a camping trip and it turned over fine. When it started to run it just died and there was no power anywhere in the trailer. After some troubleshooting I figured out the main GFCI outlet was tripping. I...

    Water leaking from Intake

    Have water coming out of the intake when it is on the hose. I can't see far enough in to see exactly where it might be coming from. I had the bowl off to install a new bowl seal. I also used all new gaskets putting it back together.

    Bowl seal

    I don't have the special Berkeley tool to drive in the seal. Is there another way to install it without damaging it?

    Bow rail removal - small holes

    I decided to not put my bow rail back on after some detail work. How would fill the 3/16 bolt holes. They go all the way through the deck and I have quite a few to do. In the past I have used a dowel with epoxy to fill a larger size hole and just put a little gel repair over the top. I have...

    Carpet install

    I have a Hallett 20.5 open bow jet boat. I have completely gutted my boat and have cleaned the floor of any old glue or carpet. It is ready to have carpet installed. I have already bought my carpet and called to get an estimate on how much to install it. I was floored when I was told $1200...

    Degreeing a Camshaft

    Let me start by saying I have degreed a few camshafts but don't do it everyday. I have a new hydraulic roller cam I have been trying to match the cam card specs. Long story short it had to be installed 6 degrees advanced to match the card and particularly the 109 degree intake centerline. I...

    Complete detail and color sanding.

    For a winter project I decided I would blow my boat apart and color sand the whole thing. I did get to buy some new tools and products. I had to start with 600 due to the bad oxidation on the top. I am now using 800 then move to 1000/1200 and finally 2000/3000 depending on location I am done...

    Fuel line 3/8 to 1/2 inch

    I am wanting to upgrade my fuel system from 3/8 to 1/2 inch. I am reading that some tanks have a 1/2 pickup tube with a 3/8 NPT fitting. Will that 3/8 NPT fitting supply a 1/2 inch fuel system? I really don't want to pull the tanks if I don't have too.

    Intake grate fins

    Will these fins hurt top speed or performance? I have not seen them on any other loaders. This is on a Hallett day cruiser.

    Fuel line size not enough fuel?

    I have just swapped a stock 454 to a pretty stout 555. I finally got it out and was expecting this motor to pull harder and turn some rpm. It hits a wall and just stops pulling around 4800 rpm. The motor should be around 650 HP. Same setup with 099 iron heads dynoed at 621 HP. It now has...

    Milkshake motor

    I have a 555 that I took out of my offshore boat last year to put in my jet boat this year. The motor was a 548 and I had to have it bored to 4.560 and found out the block has 3 sleeves. Those sleeves were replaced. I had a problem last summer with the motor getting a pretty bad milkshake...

    1984 Hallett BR upgrade

    I bought my Hallett 2 years ago. I was very happy to find an open bow even though it was in Southern California. I live in Reno and you just don't see these boats. Here it is the day I bought it. The trailer was in bad shape and was happy to make it home. Upon further inspection when I got...
