Re: James Anthony Boats

I Googled the boat and found it listed on BOAT TRADER for $29,500 and at a broker for $45000.
Nice looking boat. There is no way to establish value on such a low production craft. Sorta depends on the quality of the boat and how much you like it. I'd check in to insurance first.

Re: Clutch problem ?

The mouse wanted to be fed :lol: They like WD40 or any lubricant where the shaft goes through the strut. You are not supposed to have a distinct neutral. forward and neutral only. Never leave it running in the water without someone behind the wheel.

Re: 1948 16ft Runabout what is it

It's a self bailer. Drains water while under way. Make sure the small vent on top is always open.

Re: Soaking

Be careful on how much water you put in the boat to soak it from the inside. It's not designed for that.

Re: K engine distributor shaft and oil pump

On the K series engines the camshaft drives the oil pump. The distributor is driven by the same accessory drive that drives the water pump. The distributor in turn drives the tachometer cable.

Re: 55' Holiday, does this look right?

Pretty much all the previous post's are correct. The Holiday was a basic version of the Continental. If in doubt on the ceiling boards look for screw holes in the frames.

Re: 1959 283 Tachometer off by 30%

There is an angle adapter on top of the engine. Check that. They come in different ratios. If not 1-1 it is usually marked.

This is a Yale switch. The key slot is straight.

This is a Clum switch. The key slot is zig zag.
The larger Clum switch Matt is showing is an earlier model.

Re: KL idle

The plumbing looks right. There is a chance the heat opens up a crack and water gets in. Pull the copper tubes from the manifold end cap and the elbow. Plug the holes and run it with no water in the intake and see what happens.

Takes a special tool. To make one use a thick plate of steel and drill the bolt holes in it. In the center drill and tap the center part from a Harmonic balancer puller.
