Thanks guys. I have the service manual but the section for the control valve is really small and it looked too easy.

I ordered a few other parts that I thought could be worn out or damaged....

So I think I found the source of the leak today. I cleaned everything up and cranked the engine. With it idling, I noticed fluid dribbling out from behind the shift control valve. My guess is a...

Interesting... I may look into the bolt just under the cable as there is fluid on the tranny housing right below that. I think it's a long shot but that would be awesome if that was the problem.

Well I went out this morning after boating last night and this is what I found. Clearly, it's not the cooler. Would that be the rear seal? Looks like it's getting worse too...

I couldn't find any issues with the tranny last night but it may be worth replacing the cooler. Now that I'm thinking about it, I do remember when I rebuilt the engine last year that the cooler got a...

I understand gas is solvent but I did fix that problem and verified a clean/dry bilge after it was fixed.

It is very possible I was never adding enough fluid in the first place. I guess I just...

I usually do change the tranny fluid about twice a year and around the time it starts to get really low so roughly 100 hours but where it goes is still a mystery to me. I couldn't tell you how much I...

Transmission fluid loss? (Found the problem!)

I've got a 1:1 Borg Warner Velvet drive tranny. I notice once or twice a year that my transmission has lost enough fluid to cause slipping. I typically put about 200 or so hours on my boat every year...

It's got an electronic ignition. The coil is pretty old but I've never really suspected it. I changed all the dist springs last year when I rebuilt the engine. Heads are roughly 1.5 years old and...

Hard starting when warm

My boat is exactly opposite of what I would consider normal. I have a 351w with a 4160 carb and GT40p heads. I can let the boat sit all winter and it will fire right up without so much of a...

The problem ended up being related to the way the bendix retracts. The solenoid on this starter controls the bendix movement and the starter motor. There is a plastic fork that attaches to the bendix...

It's a Dixie boat but the engine is a 351w. It is possible that the starter is still running but not sure how to tell for sure. I thought maybe the key was stuck first but it's all the way to the...

If you can drill it, you can plug it. Sack up and go for it.

If you decide later, you don't want the pickup anymore, we can help you restore it back to the way it was.

What about after cranking for a couple minutes over the course of testing all the cylinders? I'm sure some of that fuel will go out the exhaust valves but since it's an unburned liquid, it will start...
