Re: exhaust manifold

Mr. Cool, 866-726-2665, they were a little cheaper and threw in the shipping.

Re: Looking for an engine rebuilder in Cleveland

Have one just outside of Atlanta, Ball Machine 770-279-7881. Did two 318's for me, so far the engines themselves have run perfectly, it's the other stuff, lots of little, frustrating, stuff. All things considered it's not to bad and not unexpected, frustrating.

Re: Fuel Starvation

Not only the anti-siphon valve but make sure the pickup tube in the fitting has not separated and sucking air. Replacing both of mine as we speak, had some carburetor problems that I now suspect may have been the pickup tube all along.

Re: 1976 Chrysler 360's (2)

Did mine this year, brand new struts and cutlass bearings, rebuilt transmissions, rebuilt engines, all new starters, alternators, water pumps, fuel pumps, carbs, belts-hoses, everything, old engines out, new in, just shy of $15,000. Still working out a few gremlins but a labor of love, I think.

Re: Carb Problem

The only thing I can think of there was a bit of debris in the needle valve seat holding it open, don't know just speculation on my part. And yes did check the oil multiple times for contamination, sure some got in but doesn't appear to be much.

Re: Carb Problem

Well I can finally report engines are running great, new carb was installed and electrical problem fixed. Can only speculate that was something stuck under one of the needle valves, don't really know though. Going forward with a new filtration system, it is my intent to double filter the fuel, first...

Re: transom gate and swim platform

Piedmont Plastics quoted me $980.00 for for a solid piece of 1"x4'x12', Starboard-textured, and somewhere in the $300.00 range for CNC Routing. Would have to modify my current supports if not replace, wheels are turning. Have you filled the openings in the transom?

Re: Wanted 28" Sportsman

Please post the pictures, interested. Had previously spoke with Piedmont Plastics about cutting a swim platform out of a solid piece of Starboard. They said no problem cutting but getting a piece any longer than 96" would be special order, not to mention expensive. Was also concerned about it l...

Re: Wanted 28" Sportsman

Where did you get your swim platform, have considered that for a future project? What was involved in the transom gate? Both are great additions.
