Drill a Hole In Distributor Cap!

I still have some condensation under a distributor cap.  Had this issue on the other engine last year.  I've had one suggestion to drill two very small holes in the cap, one between two points the…Continue

Hello Russell, just curious how you are making out with your boat?  I also had start issues with the previous engines.  Hope you got your distributers back in shape and running smoothly again.

I have my boat out of the water and found I need to replace my wheels.  The boat originally had 18 X 20, 3-blade wheels giving me a lot of prop slip and issues with the aft wanting to swing forward when the vessel plowed into 6' or higher waves.  I put 18 X 18 4-blade wheels and significantly reduced prop slip and was able to plow through waves without the aft end swinging around in heavy seas.  With 18 X 20 3-blade wheels the new Blue Water Mercruiser 5.7 Liter inboards reached 4200 RPM max and 4350 RPM max with the 4-blade 18 X 18 wheels.  I measured the shaft distance to the bottom of my hull and found I have 11.75 inches of clearance.  This means I can put 19 X19 3-blade wheels on the boat.  I plan to run some simulations to see which wheels give me the best range for my boating requirements.  I am having a new fiberglass tank installed which will hold more fuel so I need to re-enter my fuel weight parameters before I can make my decision.  I hope to know the tank volume later this week.


As far as your boat;  I would be willing to run  your parameters to see what the program recommends but you should also give the same info you give me to your wheel salesman to confirm / recommend wheels for your vessel.  Let me know if I can help.  I won't charge you anything to run the simulation.  It would be helpful if I do run your boat through the system, to get your water speed versus RPM results for various RPM's with your current configuration and after you put on new wheels.  The program has a lot of graphs that will show what improvements are realized and what your range/fuels cost will be at various RPM's and loads.
