    Yes, housing gasket part number 3914310. I found the number on quickserve. It's possible the existing gasket might be ok though.

    Yes....Trying to remember, the round one is for the elbow, and the square one is for the big housing you have to remove to get to the thermostat.

    Hey guys, I had joined on here a few months back but needed to change screen name. We just recently purchased a 2000 460 that we are in the process of redoing. Its a solid boat but needs a lot of TLC. I will say we actually are on the same dock as Josh in Clear Lake. It has been a HUGE help but wanted to say hello! Pictures to come soon

    Hey guys,

    Been a while since I’ve been on here. Does anyone have suggestions on where to buy replacement isinglass/canvas for the 5 panels around the helm? My 460 has a hardtop with a canvas camper top which needs to be replaced as well. I’m afraid that will have to be custom made to get replaced.

    You will need to get it custom made. There is not a shop who stocks this item and you will be much happier with a custom enclosure anyway.

    Anybody off hand know which Groco strainer in on the 460 for the AC Raw water intake? I am needing to order the
    cap for it that has the hose adapter for an AC flush.

    Thanks to you all

    If you know a machine shop, really simple to drill it and tap it, that's what I did, short piece of pipe and then a ball valve with a garden hose fitting

    Looking at upgrading to a 2017 460. Love the layout of salon and cabins. Anyone have opinions +/- on this model.

    Lurking for a friend.
    We took their 2005 460 out yesterday, and 10' of forward gear out of the slip, the Starboard engine died. This is after at least a 10 minute warm up at the dock prior to engaging. These people are pilots that run you and I safely all over the world. He restarted, and all was well for the rest of the day. They stated that this has happened about 6 times now, I'll say randomly, but not always at the start of a run. Always after idling for a bit, like waiting for a bridge to raise, and then moving ahead. It always restarts immediately once it is apparent that the engine has died. Their mechanic says nothing is wrong, but I'm not sure they have tried to run it under load of forward gear. I have personally seen it happen. it was 85 degrees on a calm Florida day.
    Gassers I know, and 3208s I know. Cummins, especially newer ones, no so much.
    Any first guesses about where to point? Starting in this thread in case someone just went through this. Problems in models, and engines seem to replicate across owners.
    TIA.

    Ok I’ll answer a few of the above questions.

    My ac strainer is a perko and not a groco. So if you have a groco that would be news to me. The perko flushing cap is not good and it’s well documented so I suggest you google that before you buy one.

    The Cummins dying is most likely an idle issue. These engines like to idle at 650-700 and many idle below that so they can stumble.the idle is easily adjustable. If your friends is a smart craft engine then I’ll almost put money on the ecm software. It is called stumble and it was resolved with a software fix to the ecm. It is also well documented by Tony Athens on sbmar.com.

    If it’s neither of these then I’m going with an air leak somewhere in the fuel system.

    I’ve been on the new ones a few times and they are beautiful. Although I am a Searay fan I just can’t wrap my head around the costs and the fact you can get so much more out of a slightly older boat. Everyone has preferences and our local MarineMax has sold a couple so I get it’s not all about me. I will say it is very quiet and the finishes are top notch.

    For those looking to winterize your engines and a/c I added the Groco SSC-Series flush kit to each strainer. This part is well made, no plastic and simplifies winterizing by hooking up a five gallon bucket and starting each engine with seacock closed until you see pink out the side of the boat. Four the three a/c's added this flush kit to the the strainer but also put inline shut off valves so I know which a/c is winterized since they share a common outlet. I have done my 460 this way since 2012 first upgrade I made. Not only is it fast but I am certain everything is 100% winterized.
