Re: Facebook CC Website

All good comments, but I still don't see a workable solution. Maybe bflaherty is on the right track though. I know that doing nothing will probably lead to a slow, painful death of the CCABC website. Like many, I am pretty much done with my (current) restoration, but I wouldn't think of not renewing...

Personally I am sad to see this trend as there is no way to archive the Q&A's on FB like we do here. This site has been a great source of info...

Re: Tempo Fuel Filter Cartridge to Match Mount

I agree with that....... partially. That would reduce the chance of a small piece of tape breaking off into the fuel system possibly clogging the fuel pump. But, I have also read that the regular teflon tape will degrade with time if it is in contact with gas so it could cause a problem on down the ...

Re: Tempo Fuel Filter Cartridge to Match Mount

I am not at all familiar with this set up, but am I incorrect in thinking that the teflon tape should not be used on gas connections??

In some areas the paint intersects with the stripes that are painted into the grooves on ...

Taylor Made Windshield Questions

This is the windshield on my 58 Slickcraft. I am assuming it's a Taylor Made since that is what Chris Craft was using at the time and the founder of Slickcraft worked previously for CC. Not that it matters much, but what what is the purpose of the two holes, one on each corner of the windshield? I h...

I know how to get the hull card for a Chris Craft from the Mariners Museum. Now that I have acquired my 58 Slick Craft I was wondering if their company kept such records and where they could be found.

A good old style radiator shop will vat the tank to remove all rust and contaminates and line the inside with some sort of protective coating. The charge is reasonable as I recall......... around $100.
