I agree with denx7d, you would be safer with a 13cu.ft pony tank but if you still want to stay with the spareair, then send it back to the manufacturer. I've wasted $ and time by having my local reg repair guys fix my slow leak. The factory hydro'ed and basically rebuilt the regulator part so it's almost new. Got it back and carried it with me on 20 dives, used it twice while snorkeling when I wanted to go deep to take a photo op. All good still.

Good luck with that...... A MUCH more reliable way to go is a small pony bottle, say a 13cf with an inexpensive reg and a pressure gauge /plug or better yet a regular SPG.. That way you have a real reg with a whole lot more air with which you can more comfortably share air or hopefully save yourself or do a bit of a safety stop on the way up.

Best way to locate and repair a slow leak in a intex seahawk 500 inflatable

Get some bubble bath, mr. bubble, or just dish soap, thinned out with water, spray it all over the boat, you will get it cleaned up and find the leak at the same time. When you see th e stream of bubbles coming out, mark it, get it dried off and patch it up. I think they use a contac cement on the Hypolon boats, or is it neoprene? Do you have a patch kit? Any pieces of material for a patch? The hardware store has pvc rubber used for shower pans, that might stick on there, clean it good with laq thinner, and brush on some glue, both pieces, let dry, then slap them together. You will know if it will work. Or else look up the manufacturers recommendations. he boat supply might have patch kits in stock. Hope this helps.

My turbo diesel 405 is creating pressure in its water system any quick fix ideas,s to keep me goin .dave b

Hi Dave. You should have the sick in the gut feeling by now... pressure in the water system is a sure sign of a head gasket failure. There are no quick fixes for head gaskets most of the time... you can try a product called "stop leak" but I have never had any luck using it to resolve a head gasket leak. Most any product you use or introduce into the coolant to try and stop the leak will have side effects that usually end up costing more money down the road.

The first thing you do is loosen the radiator cap to the first notch and leave it there until the head gasket is replaced. It will require you OFTEN add coolant / water to your radiator and will bypass the function of the coolant recovery tank.

I wish I could be of more help here. I just want to be honest about what your up against.

No intm or washer. slow and fast ok

The intermitent system works off a circuit board which can not be tested by your means of your question. If the high & low speeds works fine the board is bad and should be replaced if sold separately from Chrysler
