Re: Refitting a 1976 F-32 Journal

Working on the A/C install. I'm happy to say that the 16,000 BTU Webasto Platinum Series unit is cooling the whole boat superbly. I also did some bilge clean up and painting. Aligned the port engine and shaft as it was rubbing the shaft log tube. Cleaned up the wiring in the engine bay and added my ...

Waste Tank Size F-32 V-Berth Location

I'm not able to get at my boat atm but I want to add a black water holding tank in the V-Berth. Has anyone done that? If so do you remember what size tank you used and where and how you installed it? I want to add a new electric toilet and also use a holding tank instead of the all in one toilet I h...

Re: Prop strut backing plates

Use white oak and it will last as long as the old white oak your replacing. There is a big diffence between red and ahite oak as far as rot is concerned. White oak is superior to red oak.

Re: Trojan F32 buyers advice

I din't answer any of your questions lol. Parts for the engines are all available her in the USA. And not anymore expensive than other marine engines. Again the engine oil and transmission fluid leaks are very concerning. You can rebuild the transmissions but it depends where the engine oil is comin...

Re: Trojan F32 buyers advice

Hi First Class, I have a 1976 Trojan F-32 and I have been a boater for a god part of my life. I'm 55 years old. My boat has the Chrysler 360s in it also. I would not hesitate buying another Trojan. That one looks like the hull is good and solid. Double check the stringers for any rot/soft spots as w...

Re: Refitting a 1976 F-32 Journal

Thanks for the info Bob, I think I will go that route but split two doors one on the swim platform and then one to access the cockpit. I already bought a small 30 x 36 or I would just get a 30 x 72. So if I buy another 30 x 36 I should be able to keep them a foot or so apart from each other. So I'll...

Re: Refitting a 1976 F-32 Journal

All tucked away for the winter. I wanted to put a zipper door on but I'm not sure where to put it. I bought a 30" x 36" door. Any ideas? And I thought I had a nice size boat. Look at the monster they parked to the right of mine. LOL

Re: Leaking Transmission

Sounds like your raw water pump needs rebuilt or replaced. If there is play on that pully it needs new bearings at minimum. Easy rebuild if you have a shop press to press the bearings in and out and to press the pulley off and on. Very important part of the cooling system on the boat. Don't run to m...

Re: Refitting a 1976 F-32 Journal

Looking forward to spring to work on the F-32 sedan. Engine tune ups on the top of the list. My question is what spark plug wires is everyone using? Right know mine run in between the valve cover and exhaust manifold. It almost seems that I would have to remove the manifolds just to run new wires. I...

Re: fuel water separators

Good to know BigD thanks for the info. I didn't realize the ethanol would affect the gas lines and filters. Just thought it was the old galvanized tanks and fill pipe/hoses. I run strictly non ethanol fuel so maybe that's why everything is still ok. Went thru all the filters this past summer and eve...
