beleave I just bought a 1974 trojan f-25

Post by jefflaw35 »

measures 25 ft at water line, 27 ft end to end. deff chrysler 318 but it has an electronic power box on top rear of motor. bad fire has made it hard to read labels. I have read that chrysler didnt start electronic fuel efficentcy till 1978. motor was swaped or upgraded? sure ways to find out f-25 or f-26?? I need to replace the motor and tranny, but rain water rust has made it hard to see #s until i get the motor pulled out. any advise??? thanks in advance.... :shock:

i have 3 sets of completly melted wire bunches, ull see them by days end. boat has fishing hard top with cobia tower, that i have already been offered 4000$ for, but im keeping it. I paid 400$ for everything, i found new charge system and 3 new marine batteries plus about 200$ worth of cleaning supplies, lol. my friend owns a small marina and boat moving company so he picked up the boat and ttransported to my house and blocked it up while i painted and hung 2 doors for his work truck. i think i made out ok so far

If you call us 609 713 4602 with the Hull number, three numbers followed by four numbers found on a aluminum plate about the size of a credit card. This plate will be by the AC DC panel or inside a door. Or find the TRJ number on the stern starboard side stamped into fiberglass. From one or the other of these numbers we or most of the members on the forum can tell you what Trojan you have.

On the aluminum tag is the engine serial number if motor was changed the numbers will not match. From what you wrote sounds like engine is original.

We have the owners manual, electrical drawing, 318 service manual, 318 long blocks, bobtail 350 (nice replacement for the 318), used and new trans., any 318 part and just about any part you could need for your Trojan.

The F-25 was LOA 25'5' Beam 10'1 1/2' and the F-26 LOA 26' 4" Beam 10' 1 1/2' It will be hard to tell if it is a F-25 or F-26 from a picture because they both look very much the same.

thanks bob, but i posted the #s right before you. not sure if you read them. i am very frustrated, this is not a picture friendly site, i can not find a way to get my pics for avatar under 27 size. cant figure out the picture setup period, im giving up for the day. thanks guys, nice to see peopl with big moneyboats willing to help, but please read what i have already written, nothing worse than people that dont read forums and just speak. sorry im just frustrated, sites like this should be picture friendly, every other site these days is...
