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 !!

Re: trans noise

Not sure if Chryslers suffer the same issue, but the flywheel on GM engines sometimes crack around the bolt holes at the crankshaft, which causes a clunking noise in neutral.

Re: Oil leak without engine running?? Any ideas?

There are several factors, here are several scenarios. Crankcase may be overfilled and leaking past the rear of the oil pan. There are two different oil pans on Chryslers, one is the standard stamped steel pan, also used on Dodge trucks (not sure of the pan's capacity) and the cast aluminum pan (the...

Re: 360 valve cover gasket replacement

Never been a big fan of all of the wacky additives that are supposed to solve every engine ailment under the sun. Personally, as a professional mechanic, I never use them. I'd much rather fix the problem, as I've have seen many of these additives either 1) not fix the problem at all, 2)make it worse...
