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...

Yeah I've dinged up my CNC prop a couple times. Thought I would put my old forged prop on while I sent the CNC prop back to be reworked. After one time on the forged prop, I decided I'd rather use...

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...

This one actually doesn't have a spring which I thought was odd. Totally controlled by the solenoid. I did try tapping on the starter and the solenoid while it was making noise and it didn't do...

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...

Bendix staying engaged

Ran the boat last night without any problems but today I'm having massive issues with the bendix clanking on the flywheel after the boat starts. Sounds like rocks in the transmission but the...

Alternator acting up

Had to call a friend to bring me a new battery on the lake over the weekend because my alternator wasn't charging the battery. My boat is an 86 with a 351w engine. Put a voltmeter on my friends...

Which fuel lines should be metal?

As part of my boat work this winter, I'm replacing all of the fuel lines from the tank to the carb. I already replaced the fuel pump to carb with a hard line but I wasn't sure about the lines from...

You can get much cheaper electric valves than a stepping motor. Those valves are expensive because they are meant to be opened in very small and precise amount. All we really care about is open and...

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...

I would start with visually checking the shifting mechanism. Put the shifter in gear and see if it's actually moving all the way on the transmission. Wiggle all the mounts and make sure nothing is...

Ok well the rod, crankshaft, and cam are within spec with room to spare so I don't really see any point in touching those. Ring gaps after honing are around 0.025" on the first ring in the middle of...

Well I pulled this engine apart because it was leaking a significant amount of oil and has roughly 1000 hours on it (to the best of my knowledge). After 2-3 days, there would be pooled oil in the...

Same here... Mine was pitted pretty bad. I tried a new gasket first and it leaked like crazy. I had to use a lot of sealant to make it seal up. I guess it depends on the condition of your manifolds.

If you haven't fixed this yet, I have another option for you. You could drill a 1/4" or 5/16" hole in both the knob and the shaft, tap both for a bolt, cut the head off a 1.5"-2" bolt, then thread...
