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 ! 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".

Response to Good documentation photo of the 327Q front end

Paul, I can take some pictures of my engines if you like. Any specific things you want them of? I just need to shovel my driveway to get out of the house this morning. LOL

This is a pic I had taken of my port engine.

[linked image]

As you can see, the expansion take is bolted to the intake right next to the distributor. And in the middle of the tank underneath is the very short rubber hose to the cooling pump on the front of the engine.

While I have this pic up, I have a question. See the little square piece below the red plug on the intake? Is that where the mechanical fuel pump was located? My starboard engine has a little bracket mounted there that is holds it's electric fuel pump. The port engine doesn't have the bracket. I'm getting the carter fuel pumps and I need to find the bracket to mount it to the port engine.

Also while I have this pic up. The port and starboard engines both have lines from the carb to the valve covers for the PCV system. This engine has a third hose from the flame arrestor to just hanging over the side of the engine. What purpose does this serve, because the other engine doesn't have that.
