Re: Low Engine Power, White Smoke

Another thing that comes to mind is the little (CG-11) fuel filter at the mouth of the carb fuel intake. Just a possibility. Usually when that thing needs to be replaced you can't get more than 1,800-2,000 rpm but once in a while you can push through. It's an easy thing (well sort of easy) to repla...

Re: Low Engine Power, White Smoke

Todd, I've noticed a similar scenario happening on my port engine recently. I can accelerate and push the throttle forward to 2500, and then it just seems to 'lag'. So, my "wall" is 2500... Although, most times I can "push it through" and then that PORT engine sort of catches up ...

Re: blower vent hose : vent collection box

Blower vent related question (sorry to hijack the post)...But, while replacing my aft deck I noticed the vent-collector box (attached to dual hoses) is not connected to the intake vent. Not sure if it’s deteriorated but there appears to be no mechanism (tab, clips, lip) to attach it to the interior ...

Re: Perko Fuel Filter/Water Separator Model 299

@jralbert... I was able to get back to the boat after all the snow to retrieve the batteries and inspect the fuel/water separator. No issues! The assemblies came apart as they should. The Port-side inside of the assembly was apart (top was unscrewed from the filter holder) so I simply tightened them...

Bow seating

I've noticed on many 32' ers, there is integrated bench seat on the bow above the salon instead of the forward windows. This is similar to CC Catalina designs of the 70's/80's. My 28' and most other models in all BigM shapes and sizes contain the forward window in that spot with NO bow seating. But ...

Re: Perko Fuel Filter/Water Separator Model 299

In regards to the fuel/water separator, I have (likely) the original bronze perko 299 for each engine. Can someone tell me the basic maintenance or operation of the units? I've had the boat for 2 full seasons and I haven't touched them. I want to know what I should do to service or maintain them as ...

Re: Engine Drain Plugs

I’m planning to winterize the 318’s myself. I plan to drain the block & manifolds, trans cooler, etc of raw water. Just so I’m perfectly clear, I’m seeing the following plugs on each engine. One side of a single 1984 Chrysler 318 Engine has the following . 1 on the block 3 small (5/16”) on the l...
