Re: GLV305 Compression question

Thanks for the reply Bilge Rat... No, I put the oil in and left the plugs out... But, I didn't have the throttle wide open either... Another inconsistency was in the test itself...

Looking for Lancer interior Naugahyde material

Hi All, In September I answered member CraigJudge's add on FaceBook Marketplace and bought his 1978 17' Chris Craft Lancer - Stinger. What a beautiful and rare and great boat it is!
