Re: 62 40 ft ?

Maybe it is not 468hp, but a chevy 468 v8? Very common for people to confuse hp and displacement.

Re: 1988 lm318 carburetor

I will second what Jeff said. I have worked on many boats that people installed Edelbrock intakes on, only to dump water in the oil a year or so later.

Re: 1988 lm318 carburetor

Interesting post. As a former GM mechanic, and all around GM enthusiast, the Chrysler engines with Quadrajets always intrigued me. I rebuilt my Carter carbs last year, and they run fine, but the idea of switching carbs has been in the back of my mind. Are the 318 and 360 intakes the same? Anyone ha...

Re: dip stick for 318

The steel pan marine engines were used on i/o, jet, and bobtail installs. They use the truck pan (with an added bracket welded on the front) and use the same dipstick as most trucks. The standard inboard install uses the cast aluminum pan with its own unique dipstick and tube. I may have a dipstick ...

Re: Nautolex - Original White w/Charcoal Stripes

I would have, but had to go a different route. I think you guys need to do some polling around the country. There is alot of older boats being restored right now. Just this winter I saw 3 different boats getting new flooring. The one, a Bertram, the owner spent most of the winter carefully peeling t...

Re: Strange Marinette?

So would this have been back in the 50s? 60s?

Looks like someone is fixing her up. I may stop by and chat with them sometime.

Strange Marinette?

Spotted this while working on a customers boat. It has Marinette emblems on the side. Welded hull and riveted superstructure.

Re: wire size

Alternator/generator ratings and controls are a mystery to many, even good mechanics. I had the good fortune of working in a shop with a starter/alternator rebuild department. This was extremely beneficial in my line of work. Here are a few valuable points I learned on alternator upgrades. 1- Altern...

Re: Looking for port hole screens

If you are interested, I was going to see if Sundown Sheet metal in Fruitport could repair mine. If my frames fit yours, they could probably make new ones for you.

Re: Chris craft 350q engine swap?

If you go look at them, you will understand. I believe the pictures that Jeff posted are early Q engines. The later ones fixed some of the weirdness, but added some new weirdness. If you compare a Q and F side by side, you will see that there are lots of little things that would need to be modified ...
