I've got a '72. 250cid in-line 6, 165 hp.

Are you saying you can get it to turn over but it doesn't start? Or that it doesn't turn over at all.

If it turns over, I'd squirt engine starting fluid into the carb and turn the key. If it starts, that would tell me fuel is not getting to the carb. I'd check the quality of the gas and look for blockages in the fuel filters and fuel lines.

If after you use the engine starting fluid it doesn't start, I'd start looking at all things electrical. Plugs, wires, making sure wires go to the correct cylinder, check for sparks in the plugs, timing.....all that stuff.

If it doesn't turn over at all, check the ignition switches and the starter.

I don't know if you're a new boater or have been doing this for years so forgive me if the following is insulting. If the boat is on the trailer, make sure you connect running water to the outdrive. If the boat starts, you'll need water circulating to cool the engine.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

1977 slickcraft question

Can anyone tell me the weight of my boat?? I have just bought a 1977 slickcraft 17.5' I/O boat. I think the model may be a SS175. The boat has a 350 mercruiser. I just want to make sure its not over 3000 pounds.

Thanks for any info you can give me.

I just joined your site. I'm thinking of buying a SS175 that's in pretty rough shape. I'm looking to find as much information as possible to help me get it back to it's original glory. I mostly need interior info. I want to make it original. Can you help with any information. Is anything still manufactured? Any photos out there of these boats? Right now I'm just in the information download time. I'd love to see the photos from your site and find out any more information on it. I can't really figure out how to navigate it though.

Hello all, new member here, I own a 1972 SS215 Hardtop that I bought last summer. Had no clue what it was but loved the looks and rock solid hull. Just started working on it about a month ago. I'm thinking transom rebuild and outboard conversion. Already pulled motor/outdrive OMC 225 stringer/Chevy V-8.

I have no plans for the od/motor. The outdrive is partly disasembled and in pretty bad shape but I'm sure some of the parts may be OK. For its age the motor seems to be in decent shape. I don't really know i/o's that well. I'm more of an outboard guy. If you are looking for a ready setup this isn't it. but if you are still interested I would let them go for around $100 plus shipping. I am out of town for the weekend but I will try to take pics when I get home.

1977 SS 245 Hardtop, twin 190's

Good morning. New to the group, and looking for information about the above boat recently acquired. It is in extremely good shape other than a timing issue with one of the engines and the OMC sterndrive cases are really corroded. I cannot find another boat like this listed anywhere. I found a 1979 and the seller said his was one of 5 built for show that year. The SS 245's I have seen do not have hardtops, and I have not noted any of the Slickcrafts with twin V8's. Information would be great. I will try get an image up soon.
Thanks! Jeff

We have a 17' 1974 Slickcraft ST-190 w/center console. Anyone else own one? We need the specs, e.g. fuel capacity, wiring, etc. Where do we get one?

What did the original seats look like?

Also, need a bimini. Any ideas?
