My reply to question #1. Stainless screws are about the only kind of screw to use on our boats.

Re: Block Heater

It only takes a few minutes to drain the block and manifolds down. That would be my fail safe.

Re: 318/392 Stroker Motors

Trower, Give Acme Props a call. They will ask you for all of your boats info, then give you a recommendation. I also wanted to go to a 4 blade design, but they said that a 3 blade was the way to go for my 28. I will find out next summer. They also said that they can re-cup the props if they need a l...

I had replaced a lot of parts on the 318's, manifolds, electronic ign., alternators, starters, wiring, etc. The motors ran fine, but I was looking for a little more power and part availability. ...
