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.

Not likely. The pulley is part of the flywheel.

Re: Hercules KFL engine noise, help appreciated

Any work done recently? There are two shoulder bolts in the flywheel housing. Are they still there and in the right place?

Re: Is this a Yale jr. ignition switch

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.

Re: New battery - ammeter pegged at 0

Sounds like a meter problem. Disconnect the battery. Remove all the wires from one side of the meter. Test the ohms between the two terminals on the back of the meter. Should have continuity.

Does the amp gauge move when the lights are on and it is not running? Or any accessory. With two people in the boat get it up on plane and disconnect the battery cable.

Re: Water pump change

No one makes a pump for the K series engines anymore. When they did both pumps for the K and M series engines took the same impeller. My logic says they would pump similar amounts of water. If water ends up in the crankcase there is probably another issue. We sell lots of the 5850 pumps that get put...
