Thanks for the warm welcome and the tips and tricks around the coolingsystem of the engine. Rickard has run the engine on the Swedish east coast (semisalt water). Where I'm situated on the west coast there is slightly more salt so your advice is certainly correct. The decission was to wait a bit with investing in an internal cooler until I know how the engine behaves overall to see if the investment could be justified. After all it is 40 years old .... Prio 1 would be to maintain and keep it in this boat as this would provide a higher value of the complete combination. I just need to find someone willing to sponsor me on the fuel
About posting image links. Are you saying that I can just copy / paste my photbucket link into the post and it will find it automatically once posted?
Here is a first attempt:
