Re: 10M 454 closed system overheating

Those hoses need to be installed at just the right angle on the riser to allow the water to swirl inside the hose to cool it.Sometimes people step on or sit on the hoses while working down there and push the hose down, just something to check if you have good flow from the riser as you say.

Re: 1981 F32 water tank problem

The water tank vent termination on our 78 was inside the boat attached to a support just behind the removable coaming panel Stbd side......only vents in the hull were gas tanks and holding tank.I can't imagine why you don't want to lift that back deck again.... :P

Re: Crusader 270 runs out of fuel

Next time it runs out of fuel ( engine stops ), dont do anything until you until you take the top off the carb and see what is in the float bowl, if it is empty then you may have stuck needle and seat, fuel pump issues, kinked line, etc, etc, carbs need a level and some pressure to operate properly....

Re: '80 F26 issue

If they put the right curve in that distributor chances are you won't see any difference. You can plot it with some timing tape, and at different rpms see what you get, the engine load will have no effect on timing advance ,it is strictly rpm related.I think if you do a search here on this, there is...

Re: '80 F26 issue

If you are seeing around 30 degrees advance at 2000, then that is about max, spec is probably closer to 27, unless you have engines with knock sensors etc. Maybe not such a good idea to advance timing past that point while under load as the timing curve is very important to avoid detonation. That sa...

Your boat looks great , the other is interesting to say the least . Kohler engine ?? Never seen one on a boat .
Nice job on the gelcoat. Now can you be hired out :)

Kohler engines, may just be those flat head four tractor engines Kohler used on their gens for years, possibly.

Re: 1971 F26 Front Window

One quick tip for you, on the cut edges, sand them nice and smooth as any ragged edges, or sharp bits can start cracks.

Re: Few questions. Setting carbs / New windows

I spoke to soon lol. After running them at idle about 10 minutes. Now the prveiously good engine died and will not stay running at anything under 1000 rpm Old Carbs are very difficult to get right, sounds like you have identified the problem carb and it sounds like there might be something floating...

Re: Wind Turbine placement on 1975 Trojan F30

He ain’t the only one. When I used to consume a lot of rum, I too thought about putting a wind turbine on an F30! Those turbines are not that expensive. Now sans rum, solar panels are the way to go!!!!! Yup, and also the panels are silent, have you ever been near someone with one of those turbines ...
