Your stock tank is a 40 gal (151lt) according to the original Chris Craft Sales Brochure I have. The 222 has a 60 Gal.

Your 400 won't get hot.

Here are some pics of my mounts.

They are channel caps with a brace plate welded to the inside to match the stringer width that are then bolted through the stringers. The motor is then mounted onto the two box sections which have the same size bolt welded through the box to the base as the original pedestal mounts. You make the box section so they're the right height for the mounts to sit on at the correct height then bolt the mounts on to secure!The box sections are bolted to the mounts, you lower the motor in and align it, mount the drive up, then tac weld the box sections to the stringer base mounts.

You then pull the drive, lift the motor carefully, pop the cap sections back off the stringers, seam weld the bad boys up, re-install them, drop the motor back in, check your alignment, whack the drive back and away you go!

If stress / vibration worries you, I'll let you know if my boat falls apart soon! I can't see any issues at the moment though. Can anyone else?

Go on, put the 400 in, you know you want to!

Regards,
John

Ok! Ghost Didn't relize it but the mounts in a 222 and stringer lay out is different than a 202. Your mount won't work for him. I'll have to get him pic's of mine,or we will have him all messed up.He will be wanting to hang a outboard on it. LOL JOHN

60 gal? i just went out and looked at mine....it has a 70gal tank made by AFP of Fl....wonder if that has anything to do with the tank/floor issue they had a recall on back in the day?

They had a recall?

Mine still says 60 Gal and I doubt if they recalled it, the old owner would've sent it back up to USA from here!

Is that bad? What was the problem I wonder?

Natewood, Any pics of yours yet?

not exactly sure about what the recall was about but it had something to do with the fuel tanks coming loose and either buckling the floors or cracking the bottoms....something like that

My floor is buckeled,and my bottom cracked but it ain't from the tank coming loose,it's from excessive speed in 3' waves. LOL. JOHN

Also I find 58 on gps a lil hard to believe, unless somebody already removed the 120+ lbs of sand out of the front of the boat.. Any way post pics up of your progress on it..

fenderjack, could you tell me exactly where your exhaust comes through the hull? also with the sbc is it possible to use a switchable exhaust or is room an issue? i would love to see your engine mounts too i have a good idae how to do it but pics definately wont hurt. Oh and my stinger does 58 with the ballast bc the heads are ported it has elderbrock intake cam and 600cfm carb but the ballast is still in front. No need for me to BS you guys lol. Thanks for everything guys,
Nate
