Re: For Sale 1972 28' express with trailer

I suspect that it is not ign. related with all the plugs on that side being wet. To be sure, put a spark tester on each plug wire on that side and check for spark. I would check compression all the way around. It is possible there is an issue with the head,i.e., cracked or warped, bad head gasket. o...

All that wood probably added 1,000 lbs. to her.

Re: Worth Buying? 76' 37 foot sedan

Sounds a little high to me with all the work it needs. If I were to throw a number out there, $7000.

Re: Help needed explaining marine power 350s

Marine power, crusader, mercruiser, volvo, omc, and others all used the chevy 350 block. The main difference in all of them is electrical(distributor,alternator, etc.) and exhaust manifolds. I have a '76 28 express and repowered with 350's. I can't give you a brand, because I have the Johnny Cash mo...

Re: question about propeller racing in foul seas

I was referring to people moving about the boat while cruising, not when it is rough. I should have clarified. I don't go out with my kids if it is rough. My main point was that I use my tabs all the time.

Re: question about propeller racing in foul seas

Depending on sea conditions, the tabs could help out with the prop free wheeling. But the trim tabs are so much more. I would say on a typical cruise, at 25- 30 mph, I use my tabs a couple of times every few minutes. I have 5 kids, and they are always walking back and forth, and side to side, while ...

Re: question about propeller racing in foul seas

I have had my twin engine 28 do this many times on Lake Superior. In my mind, it is just the nature of the beast. Having a very shallow draft, makes it easier for the props to break free in the rough stuff. Tabs are a must, but they only help so much. Just keep doing the balancing act between poundi...

Re: 1988 lm318 carburetor

Sounds like it needs to be rebuilt/cleaned. Rebuild kits with new needle and seat are usually around $40-50 bucks.

Re: Overhead 12 Volt DC Accessory Panel Restoration

I could be very wrong here, but wouldn't the load side be cold until the breaker is switched on, and the feed side be the "hot'" side? Kind of like "line" and "load" side for 120 volt?
