Re: Crushed Spark Plug!

Ran it for a few minutes last fall to winterize but haven't had it up and running since. I hear a slight clunk when I turn it over but that may be coming from a bad tooth I have on the starter (replacement on the way).

Crushed Spark Plug!

Trying to resurrect my 28 Fisherman. Changing plugs out I discovered the spark plug in cylinder #5 of the Starboard engine the end of the plug pushed in and has broken the porcelain.

Re: Painting of hull transom topside question

I'm in the process of doing the transom right now. I've always been told you MUST use a primer that can take the solvents of Awlgrip, otherwise it will lift prior 1 part paints. I am using Pettit Easypoxy with a hardener. Roll and tip looks good enough for now.

Re: 318 ignition system

That was likely me posting on the FB forum. Yep I've talked to Pertronix and I likely purchased an old stock unit. The weird thing is they would not give me a definitive answer on whether or not the lastest version would fit a CCW,,,they were kind enough to offer a credit on another item. Unfortunat...

Re: 318 ignition system

FYI, Last week I "tried" to drop in a Pertronix D241801 that I had purchased back in February. It did NOT fit in my CCW rotation 318LM, it wouldn't drop through the thrust collar. I was under the impression that Pertronix solved this issue. Ordered an MSD unit and had the same problem. Lon...
