Installed my new old stock distributor the other day. Incredibly, it fired right up after the install. And when I connected the timing light it was only a few degrees out. Pretty good for never having installed a distributor before! And today discovered why my alternator wasn't working Suffice to say it wasn't seeing a ground lol. Not one of my brighter moments. After it got grounded it was right up to 13.4 volts at idle.

Those alternators (Prestolites or Motorolas) seem to last forever. I have seen them go for 20 plus years.

Don't you just love it when a plan comes together?

Time to work on swim platform

Thought I'd get started on the swim platform. She doesn't look too neglected by the PO (I'm not bashing the PO, he is a really nice guy, it's just we have different levels of MCOCD ). I thought a quick power wash, let her dry, a quick sanding, and a little loving caring and a few coats of Cloaked's special formula and I'll be good to go.

I was lucky enough that the PO "updated" the boat (1990 ProStar) with the removable platform brackets. Pulled the removal brackets off and noticed that the board on the outside was cracked. It appears the PO tried to "postpone the inevitable" and add a few screws. My MCOCD won't let it go since I'm probably the one that is going to end up with the hugh splinter in my hand from it (or even worse catch another body part on it).

It appears it is a 1" x 1" x 54" piece of teak that has been bent on the outer radius of the platform. I know it's a ridiculous question, but anyone have any leftover teak from their platform restoration that they want to sell?

I know everyone likes pics so here we go.
Photo 5 - Swim Platform
Photo 1retouched - The swim platform upside down. Circle indicates the crack in the board on the underside.
Photo 2retouched - The swim platform upside down. Showing the board I'm looking to replace.
Photo 3retouched - Same as Photo 2retouched from another angle.


Thanks in advance everyone!

Give TeakWorld an email with the measurements and these pics. They will fix you up with a new piece for not a whole lot of money. Also, the customer service there is outstanding.

Stripped the interior and drove to Tennessee. I thought I knew exactly what I wanted. Got lots of options thrown at me. Now I have a couple of weeks to make up my mind again.
