Hank, thanks I'll get the serial Number off the motor and send it to you. Not sure of the make of the Alt I will check to see. I had that rebuilt also, but it only puts out 10 volts and when I got it back I noticed on of the braces behind the pulley was broke so Im figuring to buy a newer one rather than having that one rebuilt again. I had spoke to Chris Craft and they couldn't tell me what motor was in it. They said that they sold that boat with 3 different motors 221, 260, 289 all I can find on the motor is ford interceptor 140 hp.
Wondering if you have seen this before? On the chris craft it jumps out of gear, it has done this since I bought it last year. There is no set time when it kicks out. I have had it over 45mph when it kicks out, sometimes I can't get over 12mph, and while trolling it would kick out all the time. I torn the outdrive all apart and inspected all the gears, Power shaft, shifting gears, prop shaft, shifting linkage, all are in brand new shape not a mark on them. I have tried to adjust the linkage and have it set where it goes forward and reverse. the only thing that I can think of that is left, is the teeth from the engine and the power shaft may be stripped. I don't know I haven't really wanted to pull the motor. When it kicks out, you hear a clicking noise that sounds like when you put in into gear slowly, all i have to do is lower the throttle to almost neutral and it kicks back into gear. If you have any suggestions please le me know.
