- Definaletly. And if you have two D's, be in the one without the circle
Might try flushing your system and putting new antifreeze in too.
Antifreeze has anti-corrosive properties, which break down over time. You
should replace your antifreeze about every 100k miles.
I had a van that was overheating. I took the top radiator hose off at the
radiator (return from engine water pump to radiator), started the engine and
kept the radiator topped off with water from a garden hose (works best in
summer with hot hose water, cold causes themostat to close)(water heater
drain might work too)(don't you hate all those asides?).
Anyway, kept it topped off untill the water comming from the water pump was
clear and not rusty, drained the system and added the appropriate amount of
Never any more problems with overheating.

- A good day of building on the Piragua 18. Today I laminated on the
outer wales, scarfed and epoxy-glued the center skid, cut and framed
the hatch openings in the decks, flipped the boat bottom-up, rounded
the chines, taped the chines, removed the temporary frame, and
filled a lot of holes, cracks and seams with epoxy-woodflour putty.
My father stopped by to help me mount some glass panes in the
new "porch room", and brought his new tool,toy a table mounted
planer. Running a few pieces through, I began to see the REAL use
for such a machine. Ripping all those wales on the table saw leaves
a rough surface and sometimes uneven width (yeah I have trouble
keeping the longer pieces tight against the fence). Instead of all
that time with the palm sander and still having my laminations
coming out with slightly different thicknesses, I could have been
running them through this incredible planer--getting smooth edges
and uniform thickness. Of course, my rough uneven wales are all
glued on already, so too late now.
It was a nice tool. After we were through, I noticed that he pulled
a rag out of his pocket and dusted it off.
Still to do on Piragua 18:
light sanding of tape edges. a quick sealing coat of epoxy on
exterior of boat. attaching central skid. build hatch covers.
priming & painting. attaching decks. touch-up painting. try to
resist putting it in the water before the paint cures hard.
