Crysler 130 stacker outboard tuning info...

Starting the re-build on my Bristol and I'm powering her with a 130 crysler 4 cylinder... Now I know these engines are popular in the states but not so much over here... Does anyone know anything about tuning them?


the day before you die your life flashes before you... make it worth watching.

Did work on them in 1979.... even went on a training course to Eastleigh! Dont recall too much but they were solid (heavy) and quite clever ie putting a dyno on top of a flywheel for example.

They are fairly simple - belt driven distributor and old fashioned points firing a CDI bit like a 1969 55hp OMC. I think you adjust and use the belt tension to fine tune - Clymer manuals would have detail you need but I wouldnt spend much money on it unless compression is real good and gear oil tells a good story

Carbs simple too, need a good clean, set float, check jets - off you go
