Re: In a Jamb or Just a Nut

You know, I'll bet it doesn't matter which way at all!

Re: FYI, sounds like transmission grinding but was a dirty carb idle circuit

Right! The torsion coupling (looks like the center of a car's clutch disk) will make a hell of a racket if the idle isn't smooth. That can damage the thing, so it's good you don't let it continue too long.

Re: Kicker motor etc...

You could mount it on the swim platform IF you reinforced the aft edge with an additional strut to the transom.

Re: Kicker motor

Someone converted their big M to outboards, but they had to massively beef up the transom.

Not sure an outboard would deliver superior mpg with those two props dragging in the water. Seriously; and it'd have to be a 4 stroke OB at the very least.

Re: Left Hand or Right Hand - What is standard?

If you think our boats are complicated, be happy you don't have a Chris Craft with their freaky SB Chevy conversions. They attached the trans to the FRONT of the motor, to get the oil pan lower (or some other dopey reason). The flywheel end was then in front! Adding to the confusion, the distributor...

Re: 1984 360 RAW Water Pump

Probably so. One can envision the compressed vanes, sitting there for what could be years, taking a set like that.

Re: Anode advice

Yes. I'd bolt on a block of pure magnesium. You'll be pleased with the results.
