Re: F32 V-berth door removal

On our 78, the door was hinged on the port side and opened out with clasp on the head wall. Now the other side had an enclosed cabinet. So the point of this is the door frame, when they replaced the stringers, they missed the height of the door frame, as it was altered a bit too short, maybe 1/4 " a...

Re: Cappy's f32 rehab

Then went to HD and got 3/4 pvc board. Calked and evenly spaced the SS screws. The tank is back in the boat now Just...

Re: Battery configuration

Waywego this is not aimed at you, I believe I know which ones you have , it just came to mind after reading the last couple posts. This CO stuff strikes a nerve as it is something I took care of at work for years......If your monitors are closing in on 5 years in service, they are due for replacemen...

Re: Shut off valves

Nice job, I like that those valves can be rebuilt and put into proper use again.

Re: Battery configuration

Had a quick look at your drawing, seems you have 5 batteries, three of which appear to be one bank.If that is so try to make the bank so that you pull power from one side and the ground from the other, that may even out the discharge cycle.Treat that bank as one large battery, I don't think you need...

Re: Chrysler Engine ID Verification

Yup, so long as the engines match the tags. Have a look at the side of the block below the heads, there should be a casting number , middle set should say the engine size.

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

Thanks everyone for the comments. I just need to figure out exactly what I need to keep the fridge running for 4-5 hours or again running for 8-10 hours would be the most I would ever need. I just don't want to tax my starter batteries and not be able to start the engines. But there will be times t...

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

So I see your new post, that changes things.You calculate your planned amp hour usage then size your battery bank and charger accordingly.Here is an example. If you have a 400 A/hr bank and you pull it down by 50% ( max ) then you will have to put 200A/hrs to put back....so with a 50amp charger with...

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

I agree with rewiring. I just wish there was some kind of diagram for a twin engine, three battery set up. Trojan didn't do that from the factory as far as I can tell. But correct me if I'm wrong and point me in the right direction for a diagram. I have four or five Electrical Diagrams in my origin...

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

Do you have two 12v battery switches on the panel ? What you should do to help yourself would be to use the right coloured cables for everything, that way visually it is easy the follow and avoids mistakes. Grounds are always black, red is positive. You need protective caps on the positives to stop ...

Re: Loud ticking/knock from starboard engine

Rocker adjustment is probably out because of collapsed lifters ( no oil ).You will see when intake comes off. I have destroyed cams before but not because of oil pressure issues, it was always fixable with a replacement of parts and some cleaning inside with a magnet, I fear this maybe worse. Good l...

Re: Loud ticking/knock from starboard engine

Is that the engine with the rod bearing gone ? Cant hear anything on the link, and hard to see from the pic , but looks like there is not much if any oil getting up to the rockers etc. Got the link to work, look into the oil thing. Mike Yes,we noticed that as well,didn't understand that either. Tak...
