In the process of buying a 1979 spectra 32. Hoping to have some fun with it. Will post some pics after I pick it up.
Where you located? I would talk to Outdrive1 here on the boards if you are close to the Phoenix area. He just did mine.
"a great job for a reasonable price"
This phrase is contrary to RDP policy I think... help me here RD, JBB Bilgie?
Must be high end, forget the cost and do it mind set!
Where is the boat?
It seems most of the spectra's here are the smaller variety. Is there a good site for the 32's
Now its all making sense. I was wondering why there were Morse Twin S Top Mount Controls vs. MT-3 Top Mount or U-Flex B104 style controls. Not to mention why there was an additional hole in the dash about the size of the shifter controls, in front of the throttles.Here are some more. Ok, I have seen the velvet drives and I have seen the borg warners and the merc 2. My boat mechanic has seen them also. But what the hell do I have for transmissions. They are the last 2 picks. They look like some old chevy 2 speed power glides but not sure. Yes they are automatics or at least they use ATF.
It is actually a three speed from the factory, you can get them built as single speeds as you stated you have all the way up to the three speeds... They also offer different gear ratios in all three options... These transmissions are bullet proof, this is what came behind hemi cars... We used to build them to easily handle over 2000+ HP! They use what we called a damper plate between the engine and the spline drive, they had rubber or nylon inserts you may want to check that out to make sure it is ok too... Art Carr is still around, you can call him at his place here in HB called California Transmissions. He can give you the entire history...That is definitely it. So were they single speed or 2 speed? was there any advantage to them? or was it just a tranny to give reverse and neutral? if at a later date, could it be made into a 2 speed?
Thanks for checking on the info for me. would have never thought it was a Chrysler tranny.
It really Depends on the System (Transducer and the Gauge)Ok i found I have a depth sounder mounted to the hull in the bilge. Wires were cut and the wires on the gauge was cut also. Can I just redo the wires and have it work or is there another piece I need. Im not sure of the brand, I need a midget to repel down into the cavern and have a look see. Hell light just barely makes down to the bottom of it.
