Re: Hull Anodes

The hull should be clean under the old anodes, so I just leave them on and blast and paint over them. Then remove them and put the new ones on. I put grey zinc anti-seize on the back and on the bolts for better contact and so they come off easier. Buy Aluminum anodes from They are so s...

Re: Help needed explaining marine power 350s

I have never heard of the Power Pac 350, but I put Crusader 350's in mine. You can get lots of 318's but all the accessories are getting harder to find (or impossible) and can be very expensive. Was cheaper for me to get the Crusader (Chevy) engines. I understand that the Volvo 350 also uses the Che...

Re: Fuel Gauge

Lots of parts on these boats are automotive (like an electric gas gauge) but this mechanical gauge is made for the propane tank you see on a propane forklift. That is the secret. I looked everywhere, including the internet and could not find parts. Finally dawned on me, I see the same one on a propa...

Re: 1976 Chrysler 360's (2)

As they say, "your mileage will vary" so will your costs. Biggest variable is how much work you can do yourself. To buy new engines and transmissions I paid about $20,000. And that was the cheapest way to go. To find the parts and build two 318's with closed cooling would have been even mo...

Re: 1976 Chrysler 360's (2)

I just threw a bunch of money at the boat, and a lot of work. Still it was cheaper than fixing the 318's. I bought new 350 Crusaders with new 1:1 Borg Warner Velvet Drives and new instruments and wiring harnesses. Used the new front engine mounts and the old rear engine mounts. Used the old props fo...

Re: Who to not to shop from

Fair is fair. I'll give them credit, when credit is due. One of the bosses at Basic Power or Ebasic Power called a couple of days ago and apologized, said that they would refund some of the handling charges. They just refunded $42 to my credit card. That's what they could have done in the first plac...
