We extend to you a cordial "WELCOME ABOARD !" Come on in, make yourself at home, we are a friendly group of enthusiasts, and we also appreciate the classic Chris Craft Roamer, Corsair, and Lancer boats too , as they are all on the same family tree and share much in common ! Just start by posting a note introducing yourself to the group, that's all it takes here (we don't ask for or retain any personal information here, because our intention is to just "have fun and share information".
On Aug 5th & 8th I posted two threads regarding rising temps. in one engine at idle speeds.I too found a wee bit of crud in one of the pressure relief valves,cleaned it out and end of problem.
So if anyone is noticing a higher than normal temp. at idle or lower RPM's and you suspect raw water intake pump impeller or worn pump cam,save some time and a permanent flame arrestor nut imprint on your chest and check out those relief valves first, cause' they're a lot easier to get to!
Only six months til 07 launch!
