Re: KLC Numerous Issues

Hi Jim we rebuild these pumps New Gears and All just for your information. David, Darn! I didn't even know this! I was going off the info on the board here. I'm very happy with the performance of my new Jabsco pump, but I would have gladly rebuilt the original pump! I don't really need 100% reprodu...

Re: K 100 HP WATER PUMP ISSUE

It sounds as if you had experienced similar problems to mine with you water pump. I have a 1959 CC 17' Sportsman with a K 100 HP CC engine. According to my historic records the pump is identified as a M10262G, which is either a CC number or Sherwood number or both. The raw water pump is mechanicall...

Re: KLC Numerous Issues

Also, the valve adjustment went pretty well. Kind of a pain to get to, but once you get everything cleared away it wasn't too bad.

I had one intake and one exhaust valve that were tight, on different cylinders. Everything else was dead on.

Re: KLC Numerous Issues

Ok, new pump installed. Cooling problems solved! I changed the old pump out for the "M" pump - Jabsco 5850. Works like a champ! Needed a few adaptors from the Home Depot, but no big deal. I was having some trouble with the ignition system, but traced it back to the generator. Glenn Chaney rebuilt it...

If you don't mind me piggybacking your string, a couple of basic KLC Carb questions I'm wondering about: 1) For the 263M model, is turning in (clockwise) lea...

Re: KLC Numerous Issues

I don't know if it ever ran in salt water. I've only got the history going back to the 90's on it. No salt water since then, and I believe the engine was rebuilt back then. So, I'd say no on the salt water. I've re-torqued the head a few times, but thanks for the reminder to do it again, especially ...

Hey all! FINALLY! I've got my boat running and in the water. 1951 Riviera. KLC Engine. I bypassed the oil cooler since it was leaking water. Apparently, the gaskets I cut didn't work all that well.

51 Riviera Horn Ring - Rubber Insulators

Heyas! My steering wheel was restored and looks great. The horn ring is too loose, though. The three rubber insulators are pretty chewed up. Anyone know of a place to buy some, or a good method of making new ones? I'll attach a pic of the wheel if I can figure out how! https://drive.google.com/file/...
