  1. cracked heads on a 426

    Machine shop called. I have cracked head on my 426 Chrysler. Current heads are cast iron, but most new replacements are aluminum.

  6. Angry 58 LRC Washer/Dryer Mystery

    I went to pull my W/D out to install an LG100 (I love these!) in the main tank fuel line. I removed the front paneling, and got the unit 98% of the way out but couldn't get it all the way out. The hoses were holding it in. I can't squeeze past it. I can't reach the connection to the unit. I cannot...

  8. Props? Fresh vs. Salt : Performance Difference

    When I got my boat it had the factory 28x31 props on it and would do 16.5 knots at +-/ 2000 in salt water. I had the engines gone through and the air side of the intercoolers from the looks of it had never been cleaned. Secondary fuel filters were ancient. The timing got adjusted as well as the...

  11. Twin Disc trans stuck in gear!!

    In forty years of boating I donít think Iíve put as much as a scratch on a boat. As of this past Monday I can no longer say that.

  12. Paragon Transmission Locked in Forward

    Have a 1973 38' Hatteras FBDC with starboard transmission locked in forward. When shifted to reverse, it kills the engine. Suppose it must be removed and rebuilt or replaced. Any suggestions would be appreciated. The troubleshooting guide gives three possible problems ... all sound quite serious.

    My boat has the original 28x31x4 dyna quad props. I can’t seem to find anything on whether the OEM props have any cup and if so what number?
