Re: 1976 Trojan F-32 sedan - Battery Wiring Question

For charging while at the dock, ProMariner chargers seem to be a good balance between quality and price. We have a ProMariner ProNautic 1230P charger that is charging three batteries individually with a total charge rate of 30A. After a couple of years, I couldn't be happier. If you are serious abou...

Re: 318 4 BBl carb

How did the bottom, shafts, props and rudders look at haul out? Drilling and tapping the 1409 is not that difficult, just make sure not to get any metal filings where they do not belong. A good article on doing this is at http://www.network54.com/Forum/424840/message/1343278350/Edelbrock+1409+PCV+dr...

Re: 1976 Trojan F-32 sedan - Battery Wiring Question

+1 on Calder's book -- I keep it on a tablet with other boat related documents. Another good reference is Peggy Hall's book on marine sanitation systems and other sources of odors: https://www.amazon.com/New-Get-Rid-Boat-Odors-ebook/dp/B01BW2ZSTW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1541215672&sr=8-1&keywords=peg...

Re: 1976 F-32 Sedan

We have a 1975 F-36 and our doors are the first type Bob mentioned. To remove them, I had to remove the back door first. Lift up the door as high as you can and then push the bottom of the door into the cabinet. Ours were very tight and I had to slide them left and right to find the biggest part of ...

Re: New Trojan owner--need lots of help

The manual from Beacon Marine will give you all the documentation you would have received if you were the original owner. I have mine and it is a huge help when working on the boat.

What it will not do is help you with any changes made since it left the factory.

Re: special nuts required or not?

That's what makes this site so great -- I would never have bought our F-36 without knowing I would have support keeping her running.

The friendships I have made with the members is a big bonus!

Re: Winter project list

I keep a to-do list on my phone, and have a separate list for the boat. I just counted 92 items open on the list, ranging from easy to major. There are at least as many completed over the last few years.

Re: 318 4 BBl carb

There is something weird going on here. When you have the starboard engine running faster than the port, the boat should be turning slightly to the left. It sounds to me like the secondary is still not opening up or there is no fuel getting to its jets. While I realize that the 6212S is the carb tha...

The ballast resistor is on the engine, typically near the ignition control box.
