Hardin Marine 3-1/2" exhaust silencers (pair)

Tue, 08/29/2017 - 07:06
This is a pair of Hardin Marine 3-1/2" exhaust silencers. They appear to be new. They are 3-1/2" outside diameter so they will take a 3-1/2" inside diameter hose. They measure 11-3/8" overall length and the center silencer body is 4" outside diameter. They sell for $120 new each, I'm asking $150 for the pair. Attached Thumbnails

Read it and form your own opinions. You don't even halve to comment. :))THumbsUp

Please take the time to read and realize we are losing some of our history.

With all the furors of the removing of statues and memorials of our US history, whether good or bad, it is still our history. This note is to remind us of "other" issues. Lest we forget. At this time , it is very important to remember a whole new meaning to what history is all about.

When I was a kid, I couldn't understand why Eisenhower was so popular. Maybe this will explain why..

General Eisenhower Warned Us.

It is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.
He did this because he said in words to this effect:
'Get it all on record now - get the films - get the witnesses - because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened'
This week, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it 'offends' the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving into it.
It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the, six million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians, and 1,900 Catholic priests Who were 'murdered, raped, burned, starved, beaten, experimented on and humiliated' while many in the world looked the other way!
Now, more than ever, with Iran , among others, claiming the Holocaust to be 'a myth,' it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

502 engine has partially melted piston

Mon, 08/28/2017 - 08:46
I just rebuilt one of my 502 Mercruiser engines and after 4 hours of use the #4 piston partially melted. Not sure what caused this and welcome suggestions. The builder installed new aluminium pistons and stainless valves. We have sent the injectors away for inspection and they came back good. All the valves and pistons look clean (even the melted one)like there was no detonation issues. Rings in good shape also. Any ideas what caused this??

Newbie here

Hey all, new to the forum pointed this way from another forum by a member. My name is Chris. I'm not new to boats but am new to v drives. I have a Sanger flat 17'10" early 67-70 350. I checked my v drive gear ratio and come up with 10% under driven. 10 revs of driveshaft = just a hair less than 9 revs of prop shaft. I've checked casale websight and dont see this as an option, is it possible that the previous owner swapped the gears in the v drive, can that be done. Pulls a skier out like crazy with that gearing and 12 1/2 x 13 3 blade prop but doesnt have much top end. Attached Thumbnails

77 Wesco Runner Bottom

Mon, 08/28/2017 - 07:50
Picked up a lost treasure in New Mexico for pennies. 77 Wesco 16' Runner Bottom. Question is does anyone have experience with a shorty? I have plenty of v drive experience but on 18'+ hulls. This thing looks gnarly intimidating. Worth restoring or too sketchy? Planning on using a mild build 496. Around 500hp and casale 18 gears.
