    Yes I have a shelf across the top of the tank. It’d be fairly simple to add the shelf IMO. Click image for larger version

      Oh yea I'll do that! Also I might steal your battery platform idea

    Moving the batteries further out really opened up the space around the engine, makes getting to pretty much everything more accessible.

      I got a new transducer I'm trying to run to the bridge, is it possible to run a cable along the starboard side without taking out the bathroom trim? Its all nicely siliconed and don't want to mess it up. I know I can around the port side but it requires 2 10' extension cables at 30 bucks each I'm trying to avoid.

        Bathroom trim? Removing the padded panel aft of the starboard window in the head is where all wiring and cables make there way from the engine bay to the flybridge. There’s also two removable panels in the forward portion of the ceiling and one just above the cooktop but up against the wall separating the head from the galley.

          The padded panel was the thing that was siliconed in there, but I guess I'll just be careful and remove it. Probably doesn't even need to be water tight around there.

            Not sure why it’s been sillyconed. With it removed you’ll have good access for routing your cable. I’ve got several I’ve run through there.

              Awesome, thanks for the picture! Oh, you have a hatch panel up there? Interesting, mine doesn't.

                Yes the panel the light is on in the head is also removable on mine, probably a later year thing.

              I last winter picked up a tired old 1991 2556. $2500 with the trailer. The interior was just replaced. Low time Bravo 3. It had a timed out 454 mercruiser. Injected. The core is out and gone. I have a sweet new Jasper 454 on the stand in my shop. I dont know anything about fuel injection so I am headed to my comfort level a Holley 650. I operate in Tahoe and the foothill freshwater lakes so it will be cooled with seawater. Every dated component is getting replaced. I am in the bilge sorting through and eliminating the extra wires that go no where. Replacing through hulls. I have eliminated the head and black water tank. Ill put in a portable. No more trips to the dock for a $20 pumpout. Here is my question. Now I have a 26 year old aluminum fuel tank winking at me. It is not leaking but with certainty that is the direction it is headed. Has anyone out there put in a Moeller aux tank and if so where did you put it. david Truckee Ca.

                With the engine and other things already removed from the engine bay now is the time to remove the questionable OEM fuel tank and replace it with a new unit weather it be aluminum or plastic.

                  Do you know of a plastic tank in the OEM configuration or will this be a fiberglass retro fit of a tank off the shelf. How long can we expect those old original tanks will last. What about leaving the old tank to RIP and installing another above it. This would be simple to put in with the removal of the worthless bait tank. david

                    OEM tanks seem to give it up around 15-20 years. The 2556 is equipped with a 105 gallon tank, you’d likely fit only 30-40 gallons above it. Custom aluminum tanks can be built for less than ordering an original but still not cheap.

                      Do any of the 7.4 B2 have data for the sweetspot RPM for these? Trying to find a good spot.

                        PM talman, he had a 7.4 with B2. I also remember him switching to a stainless prop. I believe mid to upper 3k’s in rpm

                      unless the engine is custom built using performance components, the "sweet spot" is mostly related to the individual boat, what size and style of prop its running and how its loaded.... the stock engines have a fairly linear power range and so it doesnt really have much choice except to do its best to push a wallowing boat thru the water at whatever rpm the owner wants to run it at...
                      but bayliner did publish their recommended range to run it in, if thats what you are asking...

                        They published it? Where would I find that out of curiosity?
