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 !

      Here are some threads that offer some good info on the #1409 Edelbrock marine 600 cfm carb.

      My own experience on a 327F small block. At first I thought the 600 was way too much carb for a 327, and it is, but the darn thing runs well and I have no complaints after several runs now. The 600 is actually a little on the conservative size for a 427, and since the original 427 Carter was a 625, you really are NOT missing anything by going to a 600. Both have plenty of fuel capacity for the 425 cubic inches in that 427 motor.

      Edelbrock info and first hand report on 427 installation. Curt Hill reports in on his conversion, which was not necessarily a "bolt in and run" operation, but was pretty simple.
