Re: 1989 Trojan 10 Meter 340 Mid cabin - Upgrade thread

I've spent a lot of time in the bilge opening for the water pump. I ended up replacing my pump as the original finally gave out. I replaced a lot of the hose as well. I can tell you that getting the hose off and on the water tank was a bear. A few cuts on that one. I also replaced my holding tank an...

RWS

I have quite a bit of the original accessory documentation, plus a copy of the mid-cabin manual that another member sent me years ago. let me know if any of it is helpful.

Re: Trojan International Website

I do love these boats. Went to look at a 13 meter recently. Liked it, but not sure I want to go through all the cleaning and restoration work. Boat is much taller than I expected. I am 6'3 and could barely reach the arch. Oddly enough getting out on the gunwhale was a little awkward. A lot to like t...

Re: 1985 Trojan 10 Meter International (distributors)

I changed mine to HEI electronic. Have to change the coil too. About $185 if I remember right. Added new plug wires and the engines ran smoother

Re: 1989 Trojan 10 Meter 340 Mid cabin - Upgrade thread

Glad to have another 10 meter mid cabin owner around. Had mine for 8 years. Happy to chime in. I had fuel tank issues a couple of years ago. I honk the ethanol essentially cleans the tank and you have to work the crap out. I built a homemade fuel polisher with a marine fuel pump. A file water separa...

Re: 10 Meter Sedan Luxury! Vinyl Floor Project and general make over

Looks great Bob. Haven't been on the site in a while. Do you still have the mid cabin? I bought a computer fan from Radio Shack as they were closing and plan on doing the same thing you did. Where did you mount the fan? I used the plank style flooring on my boat as well. It was the peel and stick ta...

Re: Fireboy Troubleshooting Help Needed

I had to do this on my previous boat. I bumped the dispersion nozzle and the content slowly leaked out. I detected it when my blower wouldn't work. If I remember correctly, I called the company and arranged for a swap out. they sent the new unit and I had to send the discharged unit within a certain...

Re: Fascinating 10 Meter Complete Refit Project

I know this boat. We boat out of the same marina and I toured the boat a couple of years ago. He rally did a nice job on the refit. The cost was up there I'm sure. Some of the work was probably reciprocal, that said, the boat is beautiful. I think diesels would have worked better as RWS had proved, ...

Re: Trim Tab hydraulic leak

I had both cylinders pop the hoe off. The collars should definitely be replaces with clamps. I just replaced all my hose and put on stainless steel radiator style clamps on the hose. Hopefully it holds now.

Re: International bonding system

RWS, Why not bond to the through hulls? Mine are currently attached to the bonding system. I need to rerplace a few wires and connectors this year
