The Ks redline is 3800 rpm Max HP is 3400 rpm We ran a 120 hp KLC (post war) with 12x13 prop turning 4000 rpm at sea level. That boat operates at sea level and at 6200' on Tahoe.

Hi Mark, It's been a while. The problem with all this instrument business is knowing with a 100% certainty this or that instrument is the original instrument. I think the probability is CC 17' BB instruments were black from 71913 on. They were certainly black from 71923 on. We probably can't really ...

Adding to Don's point, we know CC 17' BB's instruments were black before June, 1942 (71923).

Mark,
If you re within a 1/4 of an inch as you mention, its hard to imagine that causing a problem. Remember your top speed will be around 25MPH with the K power. I don't think you have an issue to worry about.

Bill, Pull the spark plugs, and spin the engine on the starter until you have oil pressure. Filling the oil journals takes a minute or two. Use Joe Gibbs break in oil for two hours for the break in. Break in oil has different lubricity that is critical for the first run in. Then, drain (get the quar...

Pat,
While you look for an original type flame arrestor, some recommend you change the element in this filter. K&N makes an element that won't burn if there is a backfire. Auto air cleaner elements may be more flammable.

Sorry I discarded the address of the EK22 for sale 6 months ago. It was in NJ and for sale on eBay.

Nice boat with alot of restoration work complete. He was asking $6500.

Good luck. XK-22 looks terrific. I ended up with a re powered 1987 202 Stinger.

The "old engine" has good compression for a K. Missing isn't likely in the cylinder- valves, rings. Were all six spark plugs brown-tan or black (wet)? Usually, an engine will "spit" and miss when its too lean. The timing can make it "spit" if its too advanced. But it would probably kick back on the ...

The compression is excellent. You covered all the of the steps the right way. Before you go any farther, dial the carb LINKAGE in with the unisyn. procedure- Put the unisyn on the #2 carb first (its closest to the throttle control linkage arm). Let the engine warm up a few minutes. Loosen the 7/16" ...

PK,
Some use 5200-CPES & West System inter changeably.

I pull the Stinger outdrive every 20 hours to lube and clean. It never stays in the salt water and sits on a trailer. It takes about 5 minutes to flush the engine with fresh water. The salt is agressive.

re- "Where do you go boating, "
The Razz is fresh water only- Clear Lake, Delta, Tahoe & other lakes nearby. The Stinger is the salt water boat that we use on fresh water too. Nothing like a run from Jack London Sq to the Golden Gate Bridge when its smooth. Yes!

K is a Herc. So far so good.
re BBK- There are a couple of issues. No biggie. Findem & fixem.

We're broken in after 35 hrs. We had a 38.5 mph (GPS) run. That's about all the hull will do.

She Idles to 350 RPM (perfect no wake&docking RPM) and comes out of the hole screaming. What a ride. :)

Open the engine up. See what you have. Sludge probably means corrosion. But seeing is believing.

There are lots of engines out there. Shop around.

PK, The 95HP Hercs are gutless in my opinion. The power to weight ratio sucks. The Crown is 218 CID about 10 CI smaller than a K. It should be "gutlesser" so to speak.
