    Mercruiser 7.4L MPI Horizon distributor timing

    Engine didnt start with just picking a post to start and wiring it clockwise 18436572. Anybody know the correct procedure to static time a big block distributor if nothing was marked upon disassembly? Where does the rotor point when the engine is at TDC compression? Thanks

    The ones that were on my 340 were the old rubber plug style with the T-handle. They were Groco.

    Mercruiser 7.4L MPI Horizon distributor timing

    After talking to a few other people it seems it doesnt matter where #1 is. Just put the distributor in at #1 TDC compression and wherever the rotor points, make that #1 and continue wiring it clockwise in the firing order. Thanks

    Mercruiser 7.4L MPI Horizon distributor timing

    Im helping a friend put his engines back together after doing the heads but he never marked the distributors when he took them out.

    460 Express Cruiser (1985-1989) Discussion Area

    @SKybolt Thanks for the info. I figured that about those high hp models. Like anything else the more fuel you put to it, the shorter the life. Id prefer Cats but it seems like the 375hp 3208s would be way underpowered in this boat. I havent gotten inside to see and inspect the condition of the...

    1988 34 ft Sea Ray cruiser

    Turn it on and get a multimeter and check the battery voltage at the battery terminals. Should be around 13V-14.5V with no load on the batterys. 12.5V or less if its not working.

    Taylor made hatch parts for 88 340EC

    Does anyone know where to get hatch handles, support rods and seals for the Taylor made hatches that came with the 340s? Taylor made says they're no longer available. Is there an aftermarket for these parts? I can only find the parts for the newer TM hatches. Thanks

    1988 Hatches?

    The factory hatches on my 88 340 are Taylor Made. Not sure if yours are too. I have the same problem, I think Taylor still makes them.

    Check your raw seawater hoses!

    Mine looked exactly the same, collapsed in the middle. I replaced all of them 2 years ago when I purchased my boat.

    Side panel material ???

    I replaced a few panels on the old Wellcraft I used to have and I used 1/2" and 3/4" sheets of Versatex PVC board. Lighter than starboard and probably cheaper too. It wasn't structural so Starboard seemed a bit overkill.
