Re: Generator on Model K

A couple of years ago my generator on my K got so hot you could fry an egg on it. Smoked and smelled nasty too. I was grateful nothing caught on fire. I took the generator in for a complete rebuild and has been fine since. Mike Murley in Fair Haven Mi. rebuilt it.

Re: Carter fuel pump rebuild question

Jim, Should I be using this retaining clip? The new arm pin has a groove in the center for it but it just does not seem like it retains well. The original pin did not have a groove or a retainer clip. The original pin is shown and the new retainer clip is on the screwdriver handle. I neglected to se...

Re: Carter fuel pump rebuild question

I got the kit from Robert Henkel @CC parts.com.
I have the pins springs and valves but not the domed piece circled with the holes in it shown in my photo. The guy reassembles his without those pieces.

Carter fuel pump rebuild question

Guys, at minute 2:52 this guy says do not reuse these pieces. I didn't get any in my kit so is it correct to toss them and just go without?

Re: Casting number for 1930 model 100 strut

I do need to drill a new hole in the keel although I have one shaft log and hopefully that one is correct.
I have another photo of a strut off John K's model 100 although no casting number on it.

Re: Casting number for 1930 model 100 strut

Is it possible to use a different strut other than what was originally on the boat? This boat is getting new stringers and a 283 engine.

See the small number by the key slot? What is yours?
Do you have keys Jim?
I had my clum restored at Clawson Classic Instruments, he supplied the keys with it. He probably has them.

Are you seeking a replacement strut?
I may be if the two struts I have are not correct. I have 700009 and 1166 maybe (hard to see)
I have access to another model 100 same boat, that strut has a different shape and size. I'm not able to get a casting number yet.
