Re: M47 tach and oil pressure connection points

The tachometer cable could go to the distributor

The oil tap is here.

or it could go to the rear mount above the reverse gear.
Remember the Chrysler takes a Clockwise tachometer.

Re: KL Tuneup Specs

Depending on the year. If you have a timing pointer, it is dot to point. If not, it is "Take the boat out and run it under load (getting up on plane) advance it till it pings then retard it till she starts easy" Direct from manual. Champion J8J or J8C .028"

Re: Hull Year vs year on boat title

When the Museum opened I ordered three hull cards. Two of the three were a couple years off of what I was told they were. I asked a Conservation officer about it and he informed me that titles were issued after the boats were made. They started 40 years later in some cases. So when people had to fil...

Re: Bending Exhaust Pipes

Bob,
Is the bend where it goes to the engine the issue? There are two elbows that look identical but have slightly different angles. 1643 and 5070. Yours takes the 1643

Re: 283 Flywheel housing

NO. The K series takes a 1EX manual reverse gear. The 283 takes a 2EX. Also the 283 with the manual reverse gear has an oil passage drilled in the crankshaft that the Hydraulic gear does not have.

Re: 95 K Oil Leak

First put an oil absorbent pad in the bilge. Check the oil level, The K engine has no main seal and will weep oil if over filled. wipe the oil pan down with carb cleaner or laquer thinner to help find out where the oil is coming from. Keep us posted.

Bilge Rat hit most of the important points. One more. Does your boat have an original bottom? I wouldn't add V-8 power without a new bottom.
