  1. Re: Engine miss and new rattle developed in exhaust manifold

    I think I would run the engine and make note of the advance at some of the various RPM intervals in the manual. Someone here will (probably) be able to tell you if the advance is OK.

    For the...
  2. Re: Engine miss and new rattle developed in exhaust manifold

    This image is from post #10. This is your distributor, correct?

  3. Re: Engine miss and new rattle developed in exhaust manifold

    The coupler your manual shows would accomplish the same thing as the damper I was describing. If that's what you have, you can forget I mentioned the noise that the springs in a damper plate might...
  4. Re: Engine miss and new rattle developed in exhaust manifold

    A damper plate typically lasts many years. Yes, the rattle might go away when the miss is resolved. I'm not advocating changing the plate before you correct the engine miss.
  5. Re: Engine miss and new rattle developed in exhaust manifold

    Regarding the rattle, I think it's very likely that you hear the springs built into the damper plate. This plate, a wear item, is where the engine flywheel connects to the transmission. When an...

    Re: Stacking fwc crusader exhaust gaskets

    This assumes you have one of the styles of exhaust hardware like those in the attached picture. The single hole gasket goes in the joint between the riser's outlet and the elbow's inlet. In other...

    Re: eletrical woes

    I am by no means a qualified electrician, but if you haven't made any changes to the AC electrical system of your boat, I would start by checking if the AC is being delivered correctly to the shore...

    Re: Mercruiser to crusader

    Are these engines providing power to outdrives? If so, the extra wire may be to momentarily kill the engine while shifting to neutral. I only know this from seeing it on a friend's boat.

    Can...

    Re: Cold oil filter, Crusader 270

    On my Crusader 270s with the standard (in 1977) 13/16" threaded nipple, I use either NAPA Gold 1061 or WIX 51061 filters. These don't have the silicone anti-drainback check-valve.

    NAPA...

    Re: Cold oil filter, Crusader 270

    I agree with the others about that plug probably not being the cause of the problem. If that was a likely culprit, we would hear of that happening in the thousands of GM vehicles on the road. But...

    Re: Cold oil filter, Crusader 270

    Here's the oil filter mount without the bypass valve installed. This is on a 1977 Crusader 270. I included the oil pump mount so that you can see its location in relation to the filter mount.

    Re: Cold oil filter, Crusader 270

    I have Crusader 270s also, but I don't have the remote filter. The photo below shows where the filter attaches to the threaded nipple in the center. (The photo is looking from the bottom of the...

    Re: OSCO manifolds / risers

    I have some extra gaskets that came with the Barr exhaust components I bought a couple years ago. The gaskets are made from Interface Solutions N-8094 material - if you Google the bold text you can...
  14. Re: EST distributor problem?.. no timing advance or shift assist

    I have EST distributors on my Crusader 350 c.i. V-8 engines purchased several years apart. Like you, the module one distributor came with didn't go into service mode so I replaced it with another -...

    Re: crusader blue brushable paint

    I have not seen Crusader Blue as brushable paint.

    I use a spray can and touch up my engines in small areas at a time. I use lots of newspaper and a little masking tape to prevent overspray. ...

    Re: Carburetor wedge

    I sent two QJets to Cliff last year. He told me that he moves marine carb rebuilds to the head of the line. I'm not sure why he does that.

    I had the same outcome that kevin_z wrote about --...

    Are you located in an area that has lots of boats? If so, look for a good canvas shop. They make custom covers everyday.

    Re: engine won't rev past 3000 rpms under load

    The fact that you found crud in your anti-siphon valve is a major clue. Did you check it again after running the engines up? Also, it could be that you have a screen on the bottom of the fuel...
