    Thanks for the manual and your quick response, it’s greatly appreciated.

    Your comment indicates you think she may be underpowered? I would have expected V8’s for a vessel this size, is this an odd configuration? Is it a case of repowering, I thought I saw an original brochure that indicated the 165’s were an upgrade over the standard Hino’s, is that accurate?

    I am buying her from what I believe to be the third owner (5 yrs), but I can’t be certain as logs only go back to ‘03. She is in what I consider to be amazing condition for 37 years old, and all maintenance has been performed annually. At a price of 40% book value it seems hard to pass on. This will be the largest boat we’ve ever owned and appreciate any and all feedback you can provide.

    We’re excited get back on the water again after several years off, but want to remain cautious!

    I think its a bit underpowered...but it is what it is...can't comment on what was original equipment vs upgrade on that model.

    good luck!

    Hello,
    You may recognize me from a different thread... about "Chevy" 350's. At second look, they are '78ish blue Crusaders -model 270... and I would love the O&M manual if you still have it. I'm having an issue with the starboard, it dies from reverse to forward when backing out of the slip, heavy gas smell...like it's choked. Ideas and O&M appreciated. [email protected]

    Thanks! Cory

    then you should be able to verify they have crusader (ThermoElectron) serial number plates on the flywheel covers....I will email the O&M manual this afternoon when I get back to the source computer...

    On the fuel smell issue - making sure the choke is fully opened would be a good first step. would also be good to remove the flame arrestor and inspect the carb primaries for anomalies....could be the float/needle/seat are due for a replacement/adjustment...could also be the fuel pump leaking so check the 'sight tube' (yellow tygon tube) running from the fuel pump to the carb...should be soft and flexible & DRY (no fuel in it) and not brown, hard, or cracked.

    Could also be tuneup time, especially with the original point setup...

    I don't believe Crusader sells them anymore...best bet is probably a www search - try <Crusader TECM-596>.

    Sometimes you can find them on ebay - once in a while you can find a scanned copy...
