Re: 10 meter mid cabin duct question

Totally my plan to make this a priority. Why I was asking for a layout. Not really sure where what goes. I have some that's metal and some that's more plastic. But all about 3 inch.

10 meter mid cabin duct question

So I have remains of ducting in my engine room. I cant tell if it was previously part of the A/C or Blower or both. Does anyone have a picture or layout of what that ducting should be or can describe it? I have a few small 2'-3' pieces left here and there throughout but nothing really attached to an...

Re: Engine issues

Did I miss where you checked fuel filters for gunk? Gas tanks still the original galvanized steel? I’m only a lil old F26 with single Chrysler 318 but was having some of the same weird engine issues, especially at 3K RPM or over. Prior owner used to “solve” it with dry gas, but he only kept the tan...

Re: Engine issues

Backfiring through the carb is often a lean condition. I am guessing you checked the external fuel filters, but did you check the filter on the quadrajet fuel inlet? Checked that one too. I might try to retune it. I tuned to vacuum 19-20 psi and it runs great, maybe i need to richen it up at idle f...

Re: Engine issues

Sounds like you may have picked up some trash in the fuel filters nor even the check valves So yes on the stbd motor. I had some garbage in the fuel filter. I also seem to have a clogged vent. Port motor still acting up. It runs fine for a while like today i went 16miles out to a reef at around 270...

Re: Engine issues

Couple of things... both temps - way too high. Running engines at different RPMs - why? If they were actually in synch you have gauge or wiring issues, if they were not in synch and you just chose to run them at different RPMs..... just gonna leave that one alone for now. 21mph for WOT - you are do...

Re: Engine issues

Tried a few things still can't get the fast idle down. Ran the boat yesterday for 22 miles top speed 21.4 mph. When we started out had a sound kind of like a pressure release ping of metal. Ran stbd at 3k rpm port 2.5k rpm as we came in port sped up to 2.7k on it's own. As we slowed down in the mari...

Re: ignition coils

What carbs? I know the edelbrock carbs need a higher shim. And if the shim is to great the bowl won't fill properly, to short it floods. New carbs or rebuilt? Check vacuum? Check spark on each plug? Drop test Stalling after warm sounds like fuel issue. Maybe check tuning on carbs as well. Check comp...

Re: Engine issues

I see what your referencing. Mine does not have that screw. It does have threads for one though.

Yea chokes suck lol I do like diesels but in not spending that yet.

So since my screw does not exsist is tgere a different way? The other motor also does not uave the screw but fast idles perfect.
