Oil Plug

Is the oil drain plug on the front or rear of the pan, 318? After buying fittings, hose and valves was told the plug is on the front and you still can't get all the oil out. If this is the case, other than through the dip stick, what if any other way is there?

Re: Exhaust manifold, 1972 318-325

Feel your pain just replaced mine on both engines. What I thought was a blown head gasket turned out to be a rotted out exhaust manifold, dumping water into the number eight cylinder on the port engine. Knowing they were original to the boat figured the starboard was right behind. What's been in the...

Re: EFI Repower

Check out Michigan Motorz they offer turn-key EFI engines. Spoke in depth with them, unless your just hell bent to go with EFI I'd stay with carbed and change over to a small block Chevy. A little extra work but if your in for the long haul, that would be the way to go, IMHO.

Re: Fuel Filter

After bearing the expense of rebuilding two carburetors not only do I run a Wix inline after the pump before the carb but one after the Perko and before the pump. Even with triple filtering I'm still running 5-6 psi at the carb. Some might say this is overkill but it gives me great peace of mind.

Re: how hot does your exhaust manifolds get on a 440

Can't tell you about 440's but with old 318's with NEW exhaust manifolds they're running in the mid 130's. That's at 2400-2500 rpm's with no thermostat's, in the next couple weeks I'll install 140's, don't expect that will change much though.

Re: Need a pair of 318's

There's a pair on Ebay for $7000, I contacted the guy and was informed that although the pictures show carbs and distributors they are not part of the package, add a $1000 per engine for them and your up to $9000 plus the expense of getting them. Close enough to $10000 to call it $10000. Not saying ...

Re: External Anode

Tabs, rudders and shafts look good, as far as I can tell. No noticeable signs of pitting or corrosion, how do you isolate the shafts? They may be and I don't know what I'm looking for.

External Anode

The fellow I bought my boat from had external anodes hanging from the bow, mid ship and stern via alligator clips to bare metal cleats. Not knowing otherwise I'm following his practice, is this adequate, overkill, etc. Bottom looks good no signs of corrosion. Also what should the CAPAC read?

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.
