Re: Newbie....Should have done this first

If you haven't yet, go check out the Marinette Facebook page also. There are a few boats for sale there, along with other interesting post. It seems there are always Marinettes for sale. One Saturday me and my wife were driving around, I told her (I want a 28 Marinette), we drove to all of the local...

Re: V6 Crusaders

Sounds awesome, 330HP, you'd be putting out the same HP as a single 440 Chrysler, with more maneuverability. Hmmmm.........165HP v6?????? what kind are they? The old I-6 (250ci) were 165HP, are you sure they are V6's?????, if so they should be 190 or 205HP. Not that it really matters, either way it ...

Re: Chrysler small block 416 stroker kit

Here's something to ponder for everyone. A lot of people would say put in a bigger engine and your going to get crappy fuel mileage. If you only put in the bigger engine, yes, you'll get crappier fuel mileage. A larger engine (especially a longer stroke) will give you torque, more torque (leverage) ...

Re: Chrysler small block 416 stroker kit

My nephew works at an engine shop, they have lots of cores, I can probably get one (or 2, let me know) pretty cheap. 400HP from a 318 is impressive, my only wonder would be how reliable it would be, one horsepower per cubic inch makes for a pretty reliable engine, too much more than that and you run...

Re: Chrysler small block 416 stroker kit

We need a good source for reverse rotation custom ground cams for this project. I don't know what the lift and duration is on a stock marine Chrysler but I would imagine it is not large enough to support 416 cubic inches. I myself am going to start looking for a 360 in the junkyard for a core (I'm k...

Chrysler small block 416 stroker kit

Eagle has stroker kits for our small block Chryslers, the largest being a 416, it has a 4 inch stroke, you have to be bored over .030, for a 4.070 bore. A 4 inch stroke would give our little Chryslers big block torque in a small block package. They have reasonable compression ratios too, so it would...

Re: LM 318 carburetors - Rochesters

The PO of my boat installed the Edelbrock carb, it is a very good carb. It must have been something someone had laying around though, because it is a manual choke model, and it's not hooked up.......yet. It starts fine, but some time in the future I need to figure out how to make the old heat riser ...

Re: Struck by lightning?

We are preparing for 3 days on the water this weekend. A few rounds of storms are expected all the way to Monday morning, with 5 inches of rain through the weekend. It's supposed to get pretty nasty tomorrow night, nothing severe, just a fare amount of lightning is what the local weatherman is sayin...

Re: Fuel for thought

Thank you for your thoughts, valid points. One question though, wouldn't a smaller steeper pitched prop do the same thing as a larger lower pitched prop, eliminating all the angle issues, as long as you don't go so far as to cause cavitation? Just a guess, but say a, 16X16cupped vs. a 20X11? The mor...
