Cruis-a-Day Gas Tank

4 posts in this topic

Hey Guys and Gals.

My buddy has an older model boat motor. It has the 2 line fuel lines, going to a "Cruis-a-Day" or "Mile-Master" pressurized 6 gallon tank. I think these were from the early 60's. But anyway, the primer on the tank leaks like no other when priming, and then it leaks when it is pressurized. I have a couple questions, does anyone know where to buy the gasket set for one of these. And also, do any of you know where I can see how to put the guts of this thing together? I want to make sure we are not missing a piece. A HSOforum to view this would be best.

Thanks

You can get a kit to build the pump.

Don't know if you'll find one at a dealer but you can find them on line at Laing Outboard.

Many years ago I had a tank like that repaired at Avon Marine. I don't know if they're still in business. Bruce at Bruce's Outboard may be able to help. He's on Mayhew Lake Road about three miles north of SR high school.

Unfortunately Avon Marine went out of business a while ago... they were bought by Crystal Pierz marine, which 5 or 6 years after they bought Avon Marine was moved to St Cloud and is now closed.

Bruce will probably be able to fix it though... seems like there's not much he can't.

    •   Well may be instead of buying a few over priced pizza's and eating them while you're sitting on the internet Beoshing about others doing something with their time and money you can get off your atheist ars and go help the folks with a few blanks! Freeking Hypocrite much!
    •   In the World According to Del, taxpayers should feel very guilty for allowing this to happen.              
    • We're not setting any records but managing to decoy a few. Struggling with a new gun that I'm too stubborn to set aside. Just happy to be out at all with what I've been through. 
    •   Dave- I'm as disillusioned as you with regards to our two main parties and I've been known to lurk around the edges of the Libertarian camp. What keeps me from coming all the way in is silly stuff like this.   You're as delusional as an altar boy that thinks the priest wants to be his "friend" if you believe churches are going to fix anything. They never have and they never will.    If churches help the poor, why are there so many poor people?   Here are a couple great examples of christians helping poor people- 1- A group from my community just got back from a mission trip to some central american rathole where 27 men that paid over $2000 apiece to go 1500 miles to build what were more or less 3 garages for some poor community. A little time for sightseeing and photo taking and they are back home with tons of pretty pictures proud of themselves for doing gods work. 2- The wife just bought 3 overpriced crappy pizzas from my niece to fund her New Orleans mission trip. A bunch of kids will raise several thousand dollars from suckers like me, take a nice trip somewhere I never went as a kid, see some sights and paint a couple houses.   Meanwhile, we live in a county where real, abject poverty actually exists. Students of mine go to bed hungry, don't have enough blankets in their house and live in homes one wouldn't leave their dog in.
    • Last week I got my two Helix Mega in. I a lot of people ask me how I install them and how to avoid interference. Follow these tips and interference will be a thing of the past.  
    • You are a confused individual , you might not have jumped on the Apple dumpling gang bandwagon at first but it didnt take you long to sit side by side.And where do you get off saying I'm whining as you spell it,  go back and read the thread again. Snowflake huh? Dave you need to get otta silly town...oh and BTW after limit hit up our group they all left!!
    • You really don't need much insulation under the ground slab, I like to use pole barn ins.[bubble wrap] or 1 inch r board [heat rises],gyp crete works but it is patented and can only be installed by certified and licensed factory contractors. they mix it on sight, it cant be mixed by youre local ready mix provider,as the formula is property of gyp crete.
