wiring woes

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

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...

Re: Wear - Shaft

Unfortunately I think most of these 45+ year old boats have not been routinely maintained, so 45 years worth of use, probably better replace it. Will just have the shop that is making the struts and rudders throw a couple shafts on the bill.

Wear - Shaft

Re: Drive Savers

Drive savers are 1/4 inch plastic piece that goes between the transmission and the prop shaft hub in order to isolate the shaft preventing any stray DC current to travel down to the prop and cause corrosion - I think that is close to the right answer. My 1973 32' has 1" shafts with 1 1/2 shaft ...

Drive Savers

Really - so to replace these 2 pieces of plastic I am looking at about 7 bills?? Hope I can salvage the old ones. Time to open up a competitor to Globe.
