Re: Oil Consumption

Oil's cheap. Long as plugs aren't fouling, why not just keep the level up?

You might have worn out intake valve seals, that can be changed without removing the heads. It's a messy job.

Re: Hooking up a Hot Water heater to raw water 318

Some people sure are soiled! What's a little semi-cold shower water now and then?

Sounds like you're back to enjoying your M again. Glad to hear it.

Re: New oil pump?

You have to pull the intake manifold off and yank the geared pump drive shaft to try that, but it's worth doing.

I might be able to make something up if you want to try it.

Re: Hooking up a Hot Water heater to raw water 318

Welcome back!

Do you have to have the heater connected to your engines? A good, well-insulated heater will hold a lot of hot water for several hours.

Re: 318/392 Stroker Motors

That 9.8:1 seems a bit high for 89 octane gas. I assume that's what you're running on (since only millionaires can afford the 92 stuff).

Also, look for light under the straight edge using a mini flashlight.

Good luck! Yours are my all time favorite Marinette repowers.

Bud:

Let me know when you yank her out. I'll run over and take a look with you.

Re: Boat in the wet, but shafts won't drip

I recommend the 3/16 packing. Much easier to install, and it MIGHT cure your weird problem.

Re: Boat in the wet, but shafts won't drip

Don't know if this is possible, but it almost sounds like the packing is stuck to the shaft and rotating around with it.
