The seacock on my 47 is an integrated strainer/seacock and I believe it is an original installation. I got it moved two days ago, and today I cannot rotate it at all -- It looks like a 3 inch ballvalve and a strainer mounted on top of it. I've beat on the bar handle; put a pipassembe on it for more leverage -- Nothing -- When I moved it two days ago I moved it right to left - Today I can only move it to the right if it would move because the hose to the engine is in the way -- Figures. Anyway -- Sugestions?!!! I'm chasing an overheat event and it is starting to look like I have an obstruction between the lake and the raw water pump on the port 3208 TA. I need to get that seacock shut so I can find out where it is.
