Re: Rocky Mountain Monte Carlo

JT, thanks for the kind words! SkipCraft...I like it! I am not sure about your 409 and your motor stringer spacing, but in the Monaco the stringer spacing is 26" and I was able to fit the engine completely between the stringers without having to notch them. To get my engine to clear, I actually...

Re: Rocky Mountain Monte Carlo

JT, your boat is very nice, can't wait to see it finished. I put the PCM 5.7 engine in my Monaco and it was a tight fit but managed to get it all under the hatch. I moved the oil filter off the engine and mounted it on a bulkhead nearby, because the bracket it was mounted to stuck up above the deck....

Re: Making progress on my Monaco.

Thanks for all the nice comments! I really appreciate it. BayouBengal, I think that is why I won the trophy. I had her sit in the boat all day!

Re: Making progress on my Monaco.

My wife and I attended the 35th annual Hill Country Boat show in Horseshoe Bay, TX this past weekend and took the Monaco for its first boat show. There were about 30 boats there, including a few fiberglass ones. It is an ACBS event, but it was not officially judged. The members present were asked to...

Re: Making progress on my Monaco.

Bob, it is good to hear that the impeller lasts longer than 1 year. I will most likely follow the PCM maintenance schedule just to be safe. I will keep the one I pulled out as a spare, but when it is time to replace it I will buy a new one. My engine has both a conventional water pump for the antifr...

Re: Making progress on my Monaco.

Thanks for all the great comments. I do manage to stay dry in the captain's chair! The only time I get wet is if I slow down too quickly in the swells, so that doesn't happen anymore. The girls were enjoying themselves in the back. For some odd reason Mary was the only one who got a little wet on th...

Re: Making progress on my Monaco.

Little update: I managed to remove all the old fuel and replaced the two fuel filters. While I was at the dealer getting the filters I talked to them about the water pump impeller. They suggested it be replaced every year even if the boat hasn't been used. Since my engine is 2 years old now, but onl...

Re: Making progress on my Monaco.

Thanks for the downloads jenko. There is a lot of info in them. I have no error codes showing on my malfunction light. I was hoping to be able to hook up my OBDII reader to the engine but no such luck. It has a different diagnostic connector and is not compatible with OBDII. I pulled the fuel contro...

Re: Making progress on my Monaco.

Thanks for all the replies! I don't think it is vapor lock because the engine has a fuel control cell that is designed to eliminate it and usually with vapor lock the engine won't run at all. Jenko, I do have a pressure gauge, so I will definitely be using it to check on the fuel pressure. Bob, the ...
