Re: on board charger

Was using a Battery Tender on the one that overheated, no fault of the charger battery was just worn out. Recently purchased a Newmar PT-14W, have used there ABC chargers for years with good results.

Re: on board charger

Just had the same experience with an AGM, Optima Red Top, battery was eight years old. Hot to the touch and would only reach 10 volts. Had it on a Battery Tender. Curious as to what kind of battery you had?

Riser Gaskets

Think I've finally found the source of my overheating, old impeller pieces have stopped up the water port in the riser. Does anyone have the part numbers for the gaskets manifold to riser and riser to elbow. Also while the ends are open any tips on rodding out the manifolds?

Re: Non Chrysler Engine Options

Researching this same subject, considering small block Chevys. What I've found is bell housings and damper plates must be changed and are readily available, imagine motor mounts also. If going with a crate engine cam's need to be swap, starter motors come to mind, intake, carbs, ignition and exhaust...

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.
