Re: Paragon Trans

Ron, Thank you for the info. I contacted Great Lakes and they were very helpful. HF-7 is a bit older than the P-31. Same internals. Same power capacity. Parts availability is a bit better for the P-31, and they have some parts and will sell to the public. Thanks again. Tom PS I searched the club web...

Paragon Trans

Does anyone know what the difference is between a HF7D-R and a P-31-R?
Both are 1:1 and right hand rotation.
Both came off CC 327 F.
The only difference I see is the ski pole mounts easier to the HF7D-R
Any help would be great.

Re: 1954 26’ Sea Skiff not going up to speed

A quick check to see if the distributor is advancing. Remove the cap and see of the rotor will rotate and spring back, if not the distributor is not advancing.

Re: Plank ID

Jim, I will give everyone a good laugh. Years of camping taught me that a propane camp stove boils water really fast. A two burner propane camp stove with a large turkey roasting pan covers both burners. I cut a hole the the lid of the roasting pan (know one uses the lid) at least that is what I tol...

Re: Plank ID

Don't be surprised if you have to steam bend the forward part of the sheer batten to get it to lay right. I had to on my 24' Chris.

Re: Dwell Angle for KLC

You could remove the dis. cap, then rotate the rotor see if it moves and if it "springs back", That will tell you if the dis. is advancing.
My two cents.

Thank you both for your reply. I will be using a relay.
Mike, I attached a scan to my original post from CC. I should have stated that CC used a relay in 1935 (not started to use).

Horn Relay / Battery disconnect

Working on the electrical system on my 1928 CC 24' runabout. My boat did not come with a horn relay. I'm very concerned about safety. The original horn draws 25 ish amps. If I add the relay would it come under the safety issue in judging? Also I have fond an vintage NOS all black battery disconnect....

Re: Ceiling screws

When I removed my originals there was plating, most likely nickel like the rest of the hardware. Your hardware was probably chrome, along with the screws.
