Re: FWIW - 140 degree thermostats and raw water cooling

Good info, thermostats are on my list of things to change, my port engine runs significantly hotter than my starboard. Being in fresh water, Lake Lanier, what would the optimum temp to run?

Re: Alternator

Eric appreciate the offer of the regulator but think I'm going to bite the bullet and replace both with Arco's. Spoke with them today and they walked me through the conversion, not much to it. By the way we're down in Flat Creek, last cove on the left just past FC9, drop by.

Re: Carb rebuild time?

Carburetor Specialists in Alpharetta, Ga. did mine, 678-393-1501, not cheap but all things considered happy with the results.

Alternator

Got the filters and carbs reinstalled, running great, only to find my starboard alternator is not charging. It is my understanding this setup has a external voltage regulator, how do I determine if it is the alternator or the voltage regulator, probably both. What are the pro's and con's of switchin...

Fuel Pump Replacement

Between new filters and rebuilt carbs guess I'll bite the finale bullet and replace the fuel pumps. Although there working they look extremely old and do not have the tubes to the carbs. These are 318's with Carter four barrels. Summit sells a Carter for $22, Sierra sells what looks to be the same w...

Re: Fuel Filter

Was planning on using it in conjunction with a new spin on set up. Let the fuel go threw the perko first then threw the Wix spin on. Hopefully between the two I can keep the carbs clean. With the advent of fuel injection carburetor rebiulders are few and far between, not to mention expensive!

Re: Fuel Filter

Alright got it off, Perko 299, one has a something resembling a filter in it, the other has nothing, hence all the trash in the carb. Does anyone still use these, nice housing seems a shame not to put them back in service?

Fuel Filter

As I dig through the fuel system comes the filters. There are two bronze filter housings, copper lines in and out, just forward of the fuel tank, began to screw the top off the port housing only to have it stop about an inch up. Did not want to pry it off for fear of breaking something, help. My tho...
