Re: Perko Fuel Filter/Water Separator Model 299

A quick note. My 1975 37' has these as well, one for each engine. They work great and do what they're supposed to. I know this because one summer she started running rough (the second year of ownership) and I attempted to drain them. Drains were frozen shut, so I took the complete unit out of the bo...

Re: LM 318 140 thermosts

I don't know if I would recommend a 160 thermostat on a raw water application. In a closed system, just like on a car, the radiator cap puts 10-15 psi on the system, thus raising the boiling point. Raw cooling has no pressure on the system, so hot spots in the block and heads will boil the water, bu...

Re: Mechanical to electric fuel pumps

I suppose the long crank time is what's bothering me. After living with, or being spoiled by, the luxury of fuel injection in modern automobiles, which fire up immediately, getting my boat to fire up after sitting a week or two seems like it takes forever. The port engine does fire quicker than the ...

Re: Painting of hull transom topside question

Here's a suggestion. If you only want to do the transom, I always see ad's for vinyl wrap decals. I see them on a lot of boats. Don't know the cost, but I'm lazy, I'd rather put on a sticker to cover the whole thing than have to repaint it.

Mechanical to electric fuel pumps

Trying to decide about making the upgrade or not to electric fuel pumps. Heard pro's and con's of both. The choice I am thinking of is the USCG approved Air-Tex 8337. It is capable of a max of 9 PSI and 30 GPH. Any one know what the GPH is for Chrysler 360's on plane? Some of the past posts expresse...

Re: For Sale: 1976 37' Sedan Bridge

I will attest that she is a top notch boat. The ladder and railings are beautifully crafted, the repower from Chryslers to Crusaders was completed with assistance from an engineer from Crusader. Wish mine was this nice !!
