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...

Starting challenges

Starts with the screwdriver trick, but not the ignition switch - just a click. Oh, starter/solenoid are an hour old.

Spacing between prop and rudder

So moving to a larger prop and shaft and it seems the prop is aweful close to the rudder, maybe an inch? Is there a minimum distance that is preferred. Could not have been too much more than that with the old set up.

Re: Exhaust manifold surface?

I would paint, but high degree paint not necessary. Paint on the bottom where it bolts to head will burn off no matter what you use - the rest does not get that hot. I always use a sealant with the gaskets to fill in all the nooks and crannies - others may not. Just re-read your email. If your talki...

Re: Wear - Shaft

Now that the rudders are done - Yes - that is an obvious and excellent suggestion. That did not cross my mind!! Bottom line is, I was going to have to have some work done to the shafts as the crusaders with reduction gear add about 6 inches to the drive train. I would have had to cut them down anywa...
