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...

Re: 318 no oil pressure

The shaft looked fine when I put the new pump in and the pump spun freely. An oil pump pumping oil will not spin freely, very hard to turn, you can get a drill to smoke turning the oil pump with a remote shaft. Some of the pump drive shafts were different lengths so check with your old pump and see...

Re: 318 no oil pressure

If the new oil filter doesn't fix it , have a look at the pump drive, thats the distributor gear and drive, make sure you got the right one and its mated properly.

Before the work was done was there also no pressure ?

Re: Wide Open Throttle

When you put the new carbs, did you make sure the cable was meeting the carb throttle arm at a good angle. I found when I did the same as you there was some altering of the bracket on the manifold required to get the right travel.It was quite a while ago and don't remember the details, only remember...

Re: overheating 440.

Sometimes when you have older hoses that have been on and off the pump many times, they will get damaged/ small splits etc where the clamps go. Have a close look and if there is room , maybe cut some off to get a newish end to clamp.It really does sound like its pulling air. I have had that and ther...

Re: Interesting Trojan Story

I realize this is a late comment on this thread but I thought I needed to post anyway. I am looking at purchasing an F32 as I have always loved this boats lines and the way she handles. I would like to know from someone who owns one and has experienced a rough day on lake Ontario, what is a safe wa...

Re: 1975 F32 Trojan Endless Love <3

The wooden box on the port side encloses the forward vent that is on all the f32 models, someone has changed the outside appearance with the big box louvers.Imo, doesn't look very safe to me. This could be the which way should the vent louvers face ??? :P The big hose is going down to the engine com...

Re: cetol application

You really do not want Gloss where your feet come into contact. I would sand off down to bare wood. Re-apply 3 coats of light, natural or orange. I have applied gloss to the facing of the steps only. For appearances purpose only. There is some clear see thru non skid tape that I have used for the s...

Re: Mounting a handle on F32 transom.

Thanks prowlersfish. The swim ladder is near the starboard end of the swim platform. I guess I’ll just need to drill a hole to see how big the gap is. I have seen step on other F32 transoms. Is the transom thick enough to support a load like that? I’ll use backing plates on the inside. Another idea...

Re: water tank

Guys, these water tanks are easy to clean and repair. they are just fibreglass. Take out, take home, fill with water and watch where the leaks are and then restore in the garage. Cap, you are way overthinking this, there are maybe 20 some odd screws, on mine there were 4 long screws holding it to th...

Re: Cappy's f32 rehab

Actually I suspect my soft deck is more a result of a previous owner removing the bulkhead/door frame that separates the v berth. Removing the frame and starboard side of the bulkhead let the starboard hatch drop down about an inch. This created a dip that no doubt held rainwater against the hatch ...

Spoke to a good friend who is an old school mechanic. He says that it could be the timing chain is skipping a tooth. Which in turn could have bent a valve stem. So we are checking to see if its a valve or rings. Will keep you all posted. Ruled out timing chain. We had water in the fuel. Rectified t...

When I put new moeller tanks in the same year f32, the old AC gauges would not work, had to get new ones.....the resistance range was off....did you connect the new senders at the termination block in the side panel ? Mike
