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".
ok i have been looking on here for quite some time now. there is a lot of good information on this site, especially this tread. however.....my 1970 commander 31 has 350ci crusader 270's in it. there is not a lot of rebuild info on these. they are the original motors for this boat. unfortunately the people we bought this boat from removed the mufflers and water check valves from the exhaust and ruined the motors. they are rebuild-able! my question is about the counter rotating motors. does the counter rotating motor have the same internals as the other? does it just spin backwards? or are all of the internals completely different? the distributors spin the same direction so i am assuming the cam gear, at least, is different. if i could get some good info on this and maybe a good company to get a rebuild kit for this would be nice. i do need new cams for both, possibly cranks too...... not sure on that one yet. thank you all in advance.
