    Hopefully, you have an ON/OFF bilge pump switch ONLY, and do not have one of the Manual/OFF/Auto helm switches.

    Re: Hello?

    That is an exaggeration..... but thank you! :D
    We are all doing fine here, and I hope that all of you guys are also.

    Re: Mercruiser to crusader

    More info would be helpful.

    Are these Merc Engines carbureted or fitted with FI?
    Do you know why the Crusader 260 engine harnesses will not work, or do you not have them?
    Do you know what the...
  10. 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...

    Dave, if memory serves me, you are a Chrysler guy.
    As you know, for years now no one here to date has been able to find and post a Chrysler Marine OEM ignition advance curve.

    This engine had mechanical tappets that required a feeler gauge setting. ...

    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.

  19. 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. ...
