Inspected exhaust manifold bolts and tightened to correct spec' with my cheapo harbor freight 1/2 inch torque wrench.... all is well keeping these bolts sprayed with liquid wrench and corrosion protection has paid off. Loosened easily and torqued up easily..

anybody ever make a long allen tool to get a correct torque spec on the 2 inside riser bolts? Anything to feed the MCOCD beast - I am sure it would need double bend? What to the pro's do in at the dealers..

good 'n tight has worked but the winter is getting long in the tooth...

Well I ordered a new hour meter on Friday, and new dist cap and rotor for the new dist that I got. Still prestolite but the new one is screw down and the old is clip down. My hour meter runs slower than it should. Hopefully a new one will cure that. Do you guys see any problem with running 12 volts to it to run it up to the correct hours? Out of the boat I'm thinking.

One would think that a slower running hour meter is better than a faster running hour meter....better for resale

That's about the only way to do it as far as I know. Don't fall asleep and forget about it..

To answer your question, you should be able to run a jumper wire from a 12 volt battery out of the boat and just have a good ground, and it will run all day long until you get your desired hours....I tested one out of the boat one time, and it ran normally

Painted the frame around the windshield.
The boat goes to the upholsterers tomorrow for new carpet and interior.

Lol I agree with the resale angle! Although selling this boat would be painful. So it probably doesn't matter :-).
