Re: Leaking Transmission

Sometimes if the shaft alignment is out it is possible to make the seal leak. Not saying this is the case, but someone has been doing something there judging by the new bolts. A quick check might rule that out.

Re: Displaying Engine Gauges on Chartplotter

Aha, it actually looks like something I could actually do :wink: maybe. Does this RS11 connect directly to the gage wiring with no interfaces then ?

That would be great considering all the drama ( extra boxes,data backbones etc.) with some other providers.

Re: Displaying Engine Gauges on Chartplotter

I have a question. How can you verify the accuracy of what you are seeing ? The reason I am asking is because you changed a value, how did you know what it would produce. With old instruments there was a voltage range/air pressure range etc.,you could test the linear accuracy, but this stuff baffles...

Re: 12 Meter Pulpit

Try a little heat on the plate and a wire like a guitar string under the plate to cut the caulk, also some heavy fishing line.

Re: 12 Meter Exhaust Pipe Cracked

Can the cracks be covered if you slip a new hose on further ? If so just drill a small hole at the end of the cracks to stop them cracking further clean and fill with epoxy and then put the hose on to cover the repaired area.Just an idea.

Re: Gas Vapor Detection...

In this case, the manufacturer has been out of business for over a decade. A similar manufacturer's test procedure is to use unlit butane gas from a lighter, but I don't know if that will work with Scentry's product. Well, hate to be the bearer here , if that is the case then that equipment is of n...

Re: Gas Vapor Detection...

Follow the instructions from the maker, as the plastic bag is a bad idea. You may damage the sensor with too high a concentration and then need to replace it. I repaired gas testing equipment for years. Actually there may be a test gas which is designed to test the functions properly, with no damage...

Re: Overheating Chrysler 360

I the manifolds are clear all the way through from one end to the other. That does not mean they are not plugged down lower, but that would not stop water from flowing to the risers, elbows, and out the exhaust. I'm going to pull the raw water pump again to inspect if it does not draw antifreeze fr...

Away, do your spark plugs look black and furry and the carbs run rich ( real smelly exhaust)?

Re: WOT

Old engines do not like high loads and rpm as there are only so many cycles in a set of connecting rods. Regardless of rebuild , unless they put new connecting rods in there as part of the rebuild ( I seriously doubt that ), If you are happy to run your boat as you already are, don't push it, IMO , ...

Re: 318 no oil pressure

Josh, before you spend more money on changing the lifters, make sure that is the problem first, it may not be. Take the intake off and check the diameter of the lifter bores and compare to the diameter of the lifters you installed. Post the results of your measurements, this needs to be fairly exact...

Re: 318 no oil pressure

It's not that someone sold me the wrong stuff, I ordered the wrong stuff. I didnt talk to anyone, just searched chrysler 318 and ordered what I thought I needed. There is a gasket on the pump. The surface was cleaned and bolts torqued to spec. Have you got the part number for the lifters handy ? Th...

Re: 318 no oil pressure

The pump spun freely before I installed it. The new lifters were the same size as the old ones. So another issue to cross off the list that may help, did you measure the lifter diameter with a micrometer or caliper and compare to the old ones before installing. Like I said before some blocks had an...

Re: 318 no oil pressure

That is it. The oil comes up thru the head to the rocker shaft which is hollow and then goes to each rocker, spring and pushrod from there. Those shafts have to be installed in the right orientation or the oil will be blocked, but that would just make the pressure higher below. Who sold you the part...
