Re: Oil leak without engine running?? Any ideas?

Check the front drain on the oil pan sump, my boat has a small ball valve installed, not sure if this was original equipment or added later. Check your oil filter for leakage. Oil could also be from a cooling line from the velvet drive transmission, or the trim tab reservoir.

Re: 318 "302" heads.....

I believe that the 302 heads came out in the mid 1980's. My father in law had a 28' big M at the time with a tired 318. We pulled the motor, freshened up the bottom end with a .030 over bore, balanced, upgraded rod bolts and the "302" heart shaped combustion chambered heads. The upgrade wa...

marinette 37 flybridge sedan

For anyone interested a1975 37' is listed on ebay by BoatAngel. Bidding started at $800 and it has several days remaining. It is located near Washington DC. Looks like it was used recently as pictures show it full of personal items. (Junk) This could be a great deal for someone on the east coast.

Re: Transmissions

They have a spring cushion that can eventually go bad. The warranty from most rebuilders requires they get replaced when a rebuilt trans is installed. My port trans is original with 1400 hrs and flexplate is just fine. I see no reason to replace it unless it gets noisy.

Re: Engine dies after warming up
