Re: engines seem locked up

That makes two of us. I can't wait to get back next week and get the plugs pulled and some oil down the holes. I wanted to read the rebuild sheet before leaving town but that didn't happen. I will try to post some more pics soon.

Re: engines seem locked up

Much appreciated, family drug me to the beach this week so no progress this week. As soon as I get home it sounds like plugs will come out and penetrating oil and trans fluid will be going in. Hopefully she breaks free. Fingers crossed for sure. I didn't have time to check the receipts about the eng...

Re: engines seem locked up

Thanks for the rotation. I have a lot to learn on the big M's. I absolutely love the design and the construction. It blows me away to look and see how well they are put togeather. I purchased a unknown project that at one time was a nice boat. Currently I have lots of investigating to do. It is some...

Re: engines seem locked up

Thanks yes the first owner did lots to the boat, rebuillt engines, all new stainless rails, imron paint, closed cooling, new exhaust mufflers, new wiring, spare everything, it's the second owner that I worry about the service side.

Re: engines seem locked up

When purchasing I assumed they had issues but after seeing all receipts I became optimistic. How does one even pull these engines out? My thought is if they unstick, on startup I would spin a bearing if it is rusted also lol.

engines seem locked up

So I was just able to get my new to me big M home and started going through the systems. I was able to get a socket on the crank nut and with my ratchet and no pry bar I was not able to turn over either engine. My boat was a great deal and I did not get a survey or do a lot of recon. My 440's are cl...

Re: Impeller size for a 440 Chrysler

Well I was mistaken I have a used impeller it's a jabsco and has a part number of 18948-0001. It is a 12 vane impeller I assume came out of my 440's. I have a spare here labeled gen that is much smaller. Hope this helps.

Re: Impeller size for a 440 Chrysler

I've got one in the package I think in the new to me 37 that just got delivered down here to lake Cumberland. I will try and go take a pic for you. Although I can't load pics here as I don't understand the sizing limitations.
