Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Advice on idea for 115 Chrysler

    I have a 79 115 Chrysler, its a great motor plenty torque and power, it has the one piece gear box with the OMC type prop , mine is stainless, Ive floated this idea on other sites with mixed replys, I heard years ago a conversion existed to do away with the power pack on the these, my engine has a points system, the conversion involves fitting a car coil n condensor, no big deal its an easy conversion, I was told that the spark on this conversion can fade off above 4,500 RPM as car coils are not high enough in voltage and the power packs job is to amplify the spark, the cobversion calls for auto spark plugs too, my questions for the brains trust here
    If one uses a resisted high performance 40,000 volt car coil will this damage the standard Chrysler points?
    Any benifits to using platinum or split type plugs?
    Will the engine run using auto type 8mm carbon fibre plug leads?
    Will the Chrysler handle high octain fuels like 95 or 97?
    How can one increase the lubrication on a two stroke
    Worth pursuing or just keep on relying on the trusty 6 HP auxilliary if it fails.
