Re: New oil pump?

Mopar performance at one time sold a 5/16 hex shaft that would slide down the hole for the intermediate shaft and into the oil pump. The engine could be tested to make sure you have oil pressure by running a drill motor on the shaft to prime and test the motor for oil pressure. This could be done be...

Exhaust manifold tubes

The original manifold was installed with the water tube and had the water entering the front of the manifold at the water tube. My new manifold (Barr) instructions says t...

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.

Doug Doty had a run of rub rail extruded a couple of years ago. He is a member on this sight. See if he has any left

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

Try replacing the distributor cap. I have had similar problem and that was the culprit. Moisture gets under the cap and then turns to vapor when it gets hot.
