Wasn't really looking for a project, But...

Postby alrobot » Tue Aug 03, 2021 10:30 am

Here is the latest addition to my 95 218CCF.
The 200 Ocean Pro that came with it was a POS... Clearly wasn't taken care of by previous owner. No compression in 3 out of 6 cylinder.
Anyhow, I found a great deal on this 275 Verado here in SoCal.
Now, on to rigging/wiring into my boat.
I was able to run/calibrate the engine to the new controls at the boat shop. Not sure if I can put their name out here, PM me if you want to know who did this for me...

On to rigging this beast. Need to redo the dash now. Seems the new electronic binnacle control is way smaller than the cable controls I took out. New black StarBoard ordered, will be here today. Heres some before pics.

OMG, got her started Saturday, 10/2, fired right up, with jumper cable to truck. I didn't think we would get that far Saturday, so I may have not charged the batteries before. Charger on batteries now. Getting the right power steering hose this week. Should see water in another week... I did miss opening day for California Spiny Lobster, but will be out there soon...
