Re: Fuel System Restoration: Tanks to Carbs...

Does anyone have a photo of what the anti siphon / check valve looks like? It seems they have a history of being problematic, but I’m not sure which part of the fuel system this is.

Re: Source for Aluminum tracks for windows

I’d be interested in the plastic tracks if the aluminum ones are nowhere to be found. I’m not sure if Mr. Althouse is still selling them. Most of those posts are from 2016 or earlier.

Re: Replacement Windows

Perfect. I’ll track down some aluminum tracks and I’ll arrange for some polyglide too. Thanks for the help.

Re: Replacement Windows

It looks like the poly glide that was listed on eBay is gone now. I remember reading the guy’s post a while back saying he was going to sell out and get out of that business. I don’t know how necessary the poly glide is?

Replacement Windows

I’m considering replacing the sliding windows and tracks in our 32 sedan Flybridge. Are there any recommendations for a glass guy anywhere near Port Clinton OH?

Re: 318 ignition system

No, no vacuum advance. It’s the marine version. On the carb, the secondaries open at WOT, but I was curious if there was enough air flow to overcome the counterweights on the secondary air flap. Edelbrock says it shouldn’t be a problem. I’m leaning more towards the timing being too retarded. The ini...

Re: 318 ignition system

(yeah, you did do a quick course change :)) If you suspect vacuum as an issue would it be correct to wonder why it's a problem in one engine only and the other is fine? Yes. It is curious. I’m going to just run the hell out of it but yeah, circling back to ignition, no more stalling with the perfor...

Re: 318 ignition system

The secondaries open, the electric choke opens normally and fully. I’m wondering if a 318 has enough vacuum to overcome the counter weights? The new carb is an edelbrock 1409 600cfm. This replaced the carter AFB, which was less CFM I believe.... and I successfully turned an ignition thread into a fu...

Re: 318 ignition system

It’s a brand new 1409 on it with all new filters in between. No coughing, no sputtering... it just stops at 2800 and any other movement from there with the throttle does nothing at all. Out of gear it’s a different story. It goes all the way up to 4000 with no problem at all. Sounds good too! This i...

Re: 318 ignition system

OK, I took the boat out for the first time with the new performance distributors DUI on both 318’s. They definitely run smooth, but the port engine seems to max out on rpm’s at 2800 at full throttle. I was hoping for an opinion on whether this is likely a timing issue, Or possibly a fuel flow issue....
