    Best to not use too much hose in the steering line. you have some long runs and too much rubber makes things mushy.
    The fries are cold so we gave you extra.

    Awesome news. Sorry for being MIA lately. We sold our house and are in the process of moving. We will be done this weekend. You can link my blog and I'll link yours as well.

    Jamie,
    I need to replace the exhaust manifolds on my 318 Chryslers. Where did you get yours? How much of a PITA was it?

    Water damage

    Wow, I am really running into water damage. It's a good thing we wanted to redo the looks of the interior. I just wish it were a little warmer so I could more easily work on the exterior. I have decided to go back with copper lines for the steering, I can work with copper.

    Hope your move went well JT, good to see you back. I'm hopeful you'll share some info on the manifolds and windows. I am really taking it on the chin with my window problems.

    I will know this boat inside and out when I get done.

    later

    Hey guys, I just added some good stuff on the "Documentation" page of my website.
    The Flu is slowing me down on "Empty Nestin' ", maybe I'll get some work done next week.

    later

    Actually it wasn't too bad. I purchased them from hurrikain marine. The most difficult part was the main bolts wanted to snap off. We also ran into issues with the backing plates being rusted through. If I was doing it again, I would buy brand new blocking plates with the manifolds.

    I can't be much help with the window tracks as mine are stil original. Do you know where the leaks are coming from? One thing I did notice is the if they aren't clean they will leak.

    I know the water is coming in from the cracked, broken, and (recently found) missing section of window track. I am exploring other options right now but am going to have to do something quick. It looks like new tracks from Marinette. I have heard good things about them from A Boat Reborn I was just trying to find a less expensive route.

    Thanks for the info on the manifolds.
