  1. Re: How do adjust the alignment on an aq series Volvo?

    Yes..... the 6 camping ring tap bolts must be a bit loose.

    Ideally, the two rubber cushion rings will be lubricated with a silicone spray or silicone grease so that they can nestle in to place...
  2. Re: Sierra electronic distributor for 318

    Dave, if memory serves me, you are a Chrysler guy.

  3. Re: GM Hydraulic lifter preload adjustment question

    Yes... the good ole days, and what a mess it could make.

    Back in the mid 60s, I built a 337 cu in SBC for my 55 Chevy.
    This engine had mechanical tappets that required a feeler gauge setting. ...

    The OEM has established a WOT RPM range for your boat/engine/drive.
    WOT = wide open throttle.

    Re: VP 280 PT Trim Motor Problems

    Unfortunately, the 280 PT OEM parts are no longer available. I'm not able to find a p/n for the entire pump, let alone the motor itself.

    You may be able to retrofit one of the later pumps.

  10. Re: GM Hydraulic lifter preload adjustment question

    Chris, you are absolutely correct! No one is going to measure it, nor is there a need to measure it.
    The 1/2 turn (past ZERO lash) that you yourself just explained, sets the plunger depth for us. ...
  11. Re: GM Hydraulic lifter preload adjustment question

    Bob, well said. You and I are willing to think out-side-of-the-box, whereas the younger guys, who view the manual as the gospel, are more prone to staying within the box.

    Re: Correct Prop Instalation Sequence

    I have never actually applied a torque value on either of them.
    Snug is good.

    If you have the locking tab for the FWD prop nut, use the tangs.
    Use the center locking bolt on the AFT prop...
  13. Re: 1987 Chris Craft model 196 Limited fuel tank issues

    Good advice, Bob.

    At this point, you can also:
    ..... remove the pick up tube and clean the screen.
    ..... replace the Anti-Siphon valve.
    ..... examine the fuel gauge sending unit.

    Re: Penta 280, what’s it worth?

    This depends on which engine.

    4 cylinder engine lower unit (2.15:1) are a dime/dozen, as they just don't wear out.
    In line 6 cylinder engine lower unit (1.89:1) ..... not much demand these days....
  15. Re: AQ225D with Pertronix HEI Dpark plug gap

    1.... If you do not encounter any missing or other issues at idle and/or low speed, and if it performs well at higher speeds, you should be good-to-go.

    2.... No more or no less than usual.
  16. Re: AQ225D with Pertronix HEI Dpark plug gap

    Let the output voltage of the ignition coil help you determine the gap dimension.
    The more energy (i.e., Voltage), the greater the gap the spark will be able to jump and ignite the fuel/air...
