Re: New old boat and a question
Anyone with a solid Atomic Bomb should treat it to the "Full Moyer" - electronic ignition, heat exchanger etc. Compared to the alternatives it is very cheap and you end up with an engine that is virtually as reliable as a diesel while being smoother and quieter. Getting rid of the points also allows you to use a hotter coil without concern which gives better ignition performance.
If it was me, I'd spend the money to upgrade all the fuel lines to braided stainless with AN fittings as well. That would virtually eliminate any concerns about gas fumes or leakage.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
