Re: Worth Buying? 76' 37 foot sedan

Pictures were fine. I would approach him with I'm not trying to insult you but your boat is worth half of your asking price, at best. She sewing and you sanding-painting can save a good bit, you start going into those engines and you're going to spend a fortune. Ask if and when the exhaust manifolds...

Re: Worth Buying? 76' 37 foot sedan

How much? Personally I would go into it as total restoration. If you can get it cheap and are a handy person go for it. If the owner is emotionally attached, not willing to part with cheap, and you're going to have to hire out the repairs, your in for an expensive venture.

Re: Salon floor upgrade

Did something very similar, used 5/8" wood grain tiles from Rubber Flooring Inc, trimmed them with a band saw and put a hallway runner on top. Looks good, feels good and as mentioned above if it gets stained or worn throw it out and start over, cheap.

Fuel Gauge

Does anyone have any experience in changing out a manual fuel gauge, mine is mounted on the top of the tank, no electrical. Sure it's original to the boat and long past its service life. Went all the way below E when I drained the tank, back up to a 1/4 with 35 gallons, has not moved since burning t...

Re: Old gas

Drained mine while it was in the yard, pulled the fuel out from the cut off valve. Had a tank in the back of the truck with a small vane pump.

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.
