Re: Engine stalls after getting to temp

You have a black and red coming from Pertronix Dist. Black goes to negative side of coil, Red goes to positive side of coil . From Key - you should have ST or S and ING or I. The S goes to starter solenoid, the I goes to positive side of coil. So the "I" wire and the Red from Pertronix bot...

Re: Engine stalls after getting to temp

Think you need to upgrade your coil at the same time with an internal resistor. Then wire directly to coil and key - throw external resistor and ignition mod in the trash.

Re: Stall when warm

Good thoughts Jeff - Rochester q-jets. I rebuilt them, but doesn't mean correctly. I often suspected the choke. I will check that out. Port engine, same set up and is fine.

Stall when warm

After running the engine for some time, typically as we are coming in to dock, the Starboard engine wants to stall, and not keep idle. When I put these guys back together, I opted not to install intake manifold with the block of plates for the exhaust crossover. I have thermal choke on the carbs, so...

Re: Stantions and railing mods

I took the round ones holding the rails on the side of the flybridge and tried to have them powder coated and it did not work. Not sure if that is a funky kind of cast aluminum or what, but i sandblasted them and clear coated. They are not as shiney as stainless, but good enough for who they are for...

Re: Stantions and railing mods

Re: Stantions and railing mods

I am replacing my flybridge railing with stainless, so I would have your rectangular bases. I do not have any of the round ones.

Re: Dinette parquet, looking for a section

Bill, I don't know exactly what you are looking for, but I picked up a dinette table that is parquet that I most likely will not use. Not sure if that could help?

Re: Water out of spark plugs hole.

I had one of these engines before. "Ran great before it sat for 6 years" One issue I ran into that I did not think of at the time, was the lifters were stuck, not in the holes, but the hydraulic little pistons inside of them were stuck. Sometimes you can work them free, but I took them to ...

Re: Starting challenges

Well, figured it out. 45 years was enough for the wire that goes from the "I" on the ignition switch to the "S" on the starter. After replacing the starter, ignition switch, battery cables, moving the ground 100 times, I finally ran a new wire from the ignition switch on the brid...
