    Three to Four Point Mounts with Ford 460

    I just picked up these mounts for my boat so I can switch to a larger oil pan. They were made by Hardin Marine. What is in the picture is what I got. I believe I only need the feet to make them work. Or is there more? Do any of you have any pictures of an install on a Spectra you could post? Thanks

    Looking at a Spectra 18...good or bad?

    I'm looking at purchasing a 1974 Spectra 18 with a 460 Ford and Berkeley JE jet. I've done a little research on this model and I know the fiberglass gas tanks will eventually have to be replaced and that the JE jet can't be fitted with a droop snoot. The boat is in another state but from the...
