    Update…core/freeze plugs from Hemi hot heads work great with the lip style block(see previous post). On another note, if you order from Napa, part number RAY2441055 starter(it is a remanufactered), it is the same configuration, relay and style. The only thing needed is to change the front snout...

    Sorry about that, I did preface acknowledging that the site was about cars. I had just hit a wall trying to figure out what was up, and what car engine was in this boat. I didn’t mean to muddy up the forums, just searching it seemed there were very knowledgeable people here that may be able to...

    Definitely a concern. Luckily this is open air every where and gives less chance of explosion, but still, anything can happen. Old wood Chris Crafts are bad ass!

    You might be on to something with the stick comment. Looking as best I can through to hole in the bellhousing, the flywheel appears to be a thick one instead of a thin flex plate that you would bolt a converter to. It is Steel as well.
