CHRIS CRAFT COMMANDER FORUM ® .......A photo-intensive technical reference file and ongoing newsletter regarding the original fiberglass Chris-Craft Commander series. This is an independent not-for-profit and non-commercial web site, not affiliated with the Chris Craft Commander Club ~~ or ~~ Chris-Craft Corporation. Our mission here is to "have fun and share information" about the Commander series (and those associated fiberglass boats on the Chris-Craft family tree) for your individual personal use, and by doing so help promote the good name of Chris-Craft, and help preserve, restore, and appreciate Chris-Craft boats. The main reference feature is the ever expanding MASTER INDEX File which contains what we believe to be the world's largest collection of documentation photos and technical information on the Chris-Craft Commander line of boats, (like these original brochure scans, featuring the iconic first 38 Commander styled by Fred Hudson, and many of the great Dick Avery renditions that followed) , (a huge collection of Chris-Craft 427 tuning and specification information), and a few words about how to use the forum.

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 !

Response to One more thing about the exhaust logs

These photos are not of your V drive setup on the Q motor, but they may help look over the lines and where there could be some blockage.

Here is a cooling diagram for a F motor, and it might help understand some of the CC cooling concepts on your Q. Note the fact that there are only a couple places where water actually goes from the motor to the exhaust system. Although one of your exhaust logs could well be clogged, the log itself does not necessarily control flow out the tail pipe. On this diagram below, note there are two water hoses leading water to the starboard riser, and only one hose leading water to the port riser happy.gif

Happy hunting, I think I would be removing hoses and checking flow there before I pulled the manifold off!!!! Sounds like a riser issue or hose blockage
