Rebuilding S&S

Just bought a '76 S&S. Is there a specific source for materials and specs regarding this rebuilding project? All assistance and any pointers will be appreciated. Thanks, Ian http://i17.ebayimg.com/02/i/06/a0/ea/6d_1.JPG

Welcome, irapm. Please check out the FAQ link in my signature. Some of the things, i.e., the PCM manual and links to various part sources might be helpful. Please take lots of pictures of your restoration along the way.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Congratulations on your purchase. You have a lot of work ahead of you, but it will be worth it. There are a number of people on here who have done stringer hull up rebuilds including replacing the stringers. Do some searches and should show up.

There is another 76 on ebay now that you may want to look at for a parts boat. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1976-...spagenameZWDVW

I like the looks of the narrow hull stars and strips and wouldnt mind rebuilding one myself someday.

I looked at that boat. Glad you got it. I didnt want to drive to NJ!!
Seriously though, there is not a bolt on these boats I havnt turned. If you need some help with somthing, I will be more than glad to help out.
I am stoked for you and your boys.
