Conversation Between OLD HOUSEBOATER and Jeff Yarbrough

  1. Jeff Yarbrough
    Hello sir...can you help me with information about my houseboat?
    Mine is a 1970 Burns Craft 44' Glass hull with twin Chrysler 318's and the Dana 60 (Chrysler Drive 90) outdrives. I have just rebuilt both outdrives with new bearings and seals. We have one cracked engine awaiting replacement, and the other is getting close to starting. Problem is...they had just set both engines in and never hooked them up. is my first question:

    I see both engines had power steering pumps. No lines that I can find go to these pumps, and I don't see a place for additional lines hooking up to the two hoses coming from the helm (and the flying bridge).
    Is there something else missing...or do these PS pumps do something else? Do these activate the clutch? I have nothing in the boat that is still there
    Feel free to call me at 901-229-3505
