Does anyone know how to drain the oil from the standard 18HP Yanmar diesel engine on the P31-II? I seem to have put a bit too much oil in!

I'm assuming that the Groco head unit that came standard with the 1987 P31-II is the HF model?

Does anyone know the difference between the Master and Standard repair kits that West Marine carries?

I've read that this might be related to the head assembly -- some sort of gasket might be blown.

Anyone know anything more than this?

Paul,

That's the way my boards are currently configured as well. Any thoughts on where I can get a replacement hasp? I can't seem to find a stainless or chrome one that fits!

I have heard different opinions on protecting lines, legs, etc. from the shroud turnbuckles. Does anyone have their own opinion they'd like to share?

I currently have plastic shroud covers (with ca ...

I tried washing my cushion, per your suggestion. Instead of machine washing it, though, I washed it by hand with a slurry of regular detergent (Tide) and OxyClean. It came out looking brand new.
