Re: trans noise

If it didn't rattle before, but rattles now, I might suspect the bolts mounting it to the flywheel didn't get tightened. At least those can be checked through the timing hole.

Re: Engine oil, transmission fluid and filter types for Chrysler 360

I use my oil pump to remove the transmission fluid. I’ve read that the multipurpose ATF is the correct fluid as mentioned before. I put Dextron in mine a few years ago and haven’t noticed slippage. I will be changing it this spring to multipurpose as recommended. Dexron 3/Mercon is what they call m...

Bremer mast restoration

Has anyone replaced the stainless channel and cover that hides the wiring for the anchor light? Mine is in bad shape and I am looking at options. If I can't find a replacement I am looking at welding an aluminum tube or something up the front or backside.
Ideas?

Re: 360 valve cover gasket replacement

In the last few years I have seen the internal diaphram fail on the oil pressure alarm switch and leak on alot of boats. One broke the plastic housing and pumped all the engine oil out. Cost him an engine. These have all been 1980's vintage Chrysler and Crusader engines.

Re: 360 valve cover gasket replacement

In all the years I have been working on boats and equipment, there have only been a few "wonder" products that I don't condemn, and even fewer that I recomend. The recomended: Sea Foam (For gasoline ONLY) Stabil Marine (the blue stuff) Stanadyne diesel fuel treatment (this stuff is incredi...

Re: Stantions and railing mods

I need to make a run to Wolf's soon so we can probably meet up. I think I found some of the round ones. I would post a picture but they are all at the polishing shop.

Paint Stripper

As I begin my repainting project, I am removing hardware and realizing how many layers of paint are actually there. Has anyone used Aircraft Paint Stripper on their boats? From what I am reading this is the easiest way to remove paint from aluminum.

Re: Stantions and railing mods

I decided to go ahead and cut out the section on the port side. I will mill out the new caps before I weld them in for extra heavy hinges. I will take some pictures as I go. I am still looking for the rectangle stanion bases if anybody has any. I am also looking for a few of the angled round aluminu...

Re: Stantions and railing mods

What you did is exactly what I was planning on doing. I plan on welding a plug in the cut ends and installing a hinge to flip the railing up onto itself. Are your stantions aluminum or stainless?

Stantions and railing mods

I am just starting my cosmetic repairs on the 72 express. I am looking for a few spare rectangular aluminum stantion bases for the railing around the stern and flying bridge. I am also curious to hear from those that have an opening in the railing at the transom. I want to cut a section out between ...
