Cracked head? Valve guides/seals? Is oil fouling a plug? When you say "fluid intrusion" do you mean oil, coolant, sea water? I'm curious because I like the boat and will be in the hunt soon for a fast 28-30 express with a tower. Thank you.

I believe it is oil fouling 1 plug, not coolant or seawater. Compression on that (and all) cylinders is good so I don't suspect a cracked head. Actually would never have noticed it as I usually cruise at 3,600rpm. Issue only showed when going WOT and then wavering between 37-3,800rpm. Feel free to call @ 508-641-0055 for more specifics. Thanks

Hi Jeff

Absolutely. I hate to think of her as having a Ďbad motorí. 1 jug just isnít getting full power. I wouldnít have even noticed if I hadnít done a WOT test. I would be comfortable cruising until a proper repair can be made. Thanks

Honestly, Iíd be pretty surprised if the engine needs a full rebuild. Without looking at it and seeiing exactly how bad it is, 8.1 pistons have a real short skirt and fragile low tension rings. It wouldnít be the first one with that issue, thatís for sure. Could also be a valve train issue such as a bad valve guide or seal. Could be sucking it out of the lifter valley to because of a bad intake gasket. Lots of possibilities that are pretty easy fixes for a marine power guy.

Moral of the story is that itís probably fixable way cheaper than repower cost.

Sorry for the derail OP

Andy,
Thanks for the reply and that some definitely important information
I was thinking worst-case scenario I am very interested in the boat if it's still around in early May
Not having to rebuild a motor or replace it would be terrific

Jeff,

Definitely worthwhile reasearch for future reference. If you havenít yet, take a look at: www.carolinaclassicboatowners.com Great source of info on all things Carolina Classic. Given their overall good condition and low hours there is plenty of life left in these motors. Feel free to call or text me @ 508-641-0055. I can get you in touch with my mechanic also.


Andy,

No apology necessary, thanks for posting, I appreciate your info. Presently Iíve got several other boats Iím prepping to launch once these noríeasters settle down, so time & cash had to be allocated elsewhere. End result of that is that someoneís gonna get a heck of a lot of solid boat for relatively short money.

Thanks guys,

Jay
