Re: 318 Timing?

Re: engines seem locked up

Will second the above, pull the plugs, liberally spray the cylinders with Marvel Mystery Oil or PB Blaster, let sit for a day or so, disconnect the coil, lay a large towel over the engine and try and turn it over. Hopefully the fogging just has them gummed up real bad and the solvents will free them...

Re: Topside Paint

Still looks good, holding up well, Gloss White for the hull, Navy Blue for the stripe. Used 3/4" reflective white tape for the pinstripe. Have yet to finish the rest, between work and the weather just can't seem to "Get er Done".

Re: water hose

1.25" ID is correct, make sure you get rigid water hose, vacuum hose, otherwise the suction from the pump will make it collapse.
