    ITs too small to be a pulpit...I'd suspect it was called a mount for the anchor (or bow) roller.

  5. Re: Any info on the original cast number of a 327 hp F series 1967 chris craft seastate

    I'd say your best bet is to contact one of the houses that specialize in 'restoring' Chris Craft engines...they should be able to tell you which casting number(s) were original...if that's what you...
  6. Re: 327F enginehow do I know if it is RH or LF rotation

    my guess would be a pressure leak. if nothing is visible, I'd suspect an internal leak in the cylinder.
  9. Re: Electronic Ignition for a 77 GM 250 I6 165 HP Mercuriser

    the gear is usually serviceable...the usual wear concerns are the bushings/shaft (slop from wear) and the advance mechanism (wear/corrosion/fatigue). the factory service manual should have service...
  10. Re: Electronic Ignition for a 77 GM 250 I6 165 HP Mercuriser

    you really want a marine grade part.

    Conversion kit is vague. typically, the only option is a 'breakerless' upgrade which deletes the points. These are great if of high quality design. the concern...

  14. Re: Thermostat replacement - need to drain any coolant?

    If the cooling system is full, the T-stat should be wet. If you remove it, you will have the opportunity for a spill, so draining a couple quarts would be prudent. as far as flushing the closed side...
