12 degees before top dead center. Spark plug .035. Cars with those engines were unusually hard on plugs. Platinium spark plugs helped remedy that situation. In recreational boats that might not be an issue.

Used only , I've spent months looking for a new one. I even tried to spin the cam standard rotation and the crankshaft reverse rotation with a two gear drive. It changed the firing order. The gear set is from a Chrysler 413HD industrial engine.

if no new cam, where can i find a used cam for a reverse marine 440? {TAHOROVER} when you added the gears, was the firing order correctable or the motor never run right after that? [ elreidsr@netzero.net]

Used cams are tough but not imposable to find.I have seen two on e-bay in the last five years and sold both for ~$300.00!

I tried a few different firing orders with the gears and had no luck. I had a few engine engineer's tell me it was possible to make it work, but it will take a great deal of math and a few hours with a cam degree wheel. I had no luck finding a 413HD RR cam or any specs. Very few were built.

I did find a company that would grind one from solid billet for 1200.00 and require a 350.00 set of roller lifters, but I went the cheap route just changed my Arabian's 440 to automotive standard rotation.

Yes I had to flip the oil pump in the trans. It has a Paragon PV300, and a Velvet Drive will be the same. I also had to buy a left hand prop with the rotation change. You can remove the distributor thrust collar and run a modern distributor as well She puts out about 500 hp

Hi, the revirse cam and corasponding gears shouldn't be a problem. Sends your distributor in revirse rotation which is not a big deal either. the firing order 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 is used on the Dodge/Chrystler 413HD-3. Take out #1 plug, put finger over plug hole tightly (after disconecting the power to the coil), turn over motor until you feel pressure building (stop). Use a long screwdriver to feel piston through plug hole and rotate crankshalft until the piston is at the top of cylinder (stop). Look at position of rotor and mark. You have found position #1. Note dist rotation and follow firing order above. This is assuming your cam-gear and cam are a set (both revirse).

Hmm, an aditional thought here. 413HD motors were set to 5deg. BTDC. For your 440 you should also make sure that when your #1 pistion is comming up on its compression stroke that both valves are all the way closed. Otherwise you will need to change where the cam-gear meshes with your crank-shalft gear. If just changing the gears a cog or two won't remidy things you will need to drill a new alignment hole for your cam in the cam gear (which is where that degree wheel is handy).

just bought a 440 rebuilt motor the motor ran great before putting it in the boat it had a reduction gear on it to begin with i put a tranny on it after putting in the boat to better match up with the v-drive an the drive line what my question is how can you tell if it is a left handed engine or right its usually stamped on block not in this case the only stamp is (R a bunch of numbers ) second question is when turning it over the gas is pushed up out of the carb blows out in a mist any clues here

I just purchased a 75 Arabian that was supposed to be rebuilt, seems as though it was. My problem is that I am loosing oil into the cooling system (open) ant the wet exhaust. Is there an o ring or rubber collar in the head gasket set that would allow this to happen

Carburetor needle and seat leaking. filling the manifold and what ever cylinders have open intake valves. I am sure there are other reasons, but this one happened to me.

bad mechanical fuel pump (marine fuel pumps are designed to drain any leaks into the crankcase - rather than to the outside like an automotive pump)

Chrysler Marine M440 1973 'Reverse Rotation" engine. Seriously need direction REGARDING the removal process of the THRUST Collar that as we know holds the Cam gear for the Distrutor in place. I need to remove that gear as my NEW oil pump ( which also has the Oil Cooler Face plate and line, is still not putting out oil pressure. With pump removed the shaft spins,,,yet under load of the pump it is not. After numerous test and tons of input from folks. I believe the shear pin has broken/bent for the oil drive shaft in that Cam Gear. I have been told it is only held in place with an O ring. Yet the Thrust Collar refuses to move. There are two oval port/holes in the Collar about half way down. Does it Really just Pull Up and OUT? Thank you for any advice. Have been dealing with for over a month.

Greetings,

The rear seal is generally the same regardless of rotation or automotive vs. marine.

The only real issue is IF you have are converting an automotive crank to marine rotation that HAS the diagonal serrations on the seal surface. If so, verify the direction of the serrations vs. desired rotation to ensure that you are keeping the oil in and not pumping it out.

Cheers,

Lew

I have a Chrysler Marine M440. The coolant (glycol) pump is trashed! Does anyone know where I can locate a new/used/rebuilt one? It is a Sherwood Pump A 09 R It has three ports - one in and two out. Have had no luck with PENTAIR (Sherwood), or MPS Info.
My boat is "dead-in-the-water" without this pump so any help would be greatly appreciated.

What do you mean by "completely trashed"? There really isn't much that isn't rebuildable about those pumps. As long as the bronze castings are OK they can be rebuilt. -- New bearings, seals, impeller, etc. Even the shafts can be replaced.

I like the advice that it is re-buildable.
The experienced mechanic who took it apart didn't think it could be. At least not so that he could assure me it would operate efficiently. After the bearings started to go(unbeknownst to me while merrily motoring down Trincomali Channel) the shaft then started to 'wobble' and the brass impeller started damaging the brass surface as well as the impeller. If I can't find a pump, where would I find an impeller? Don't get me wrong, I would love to have the option of re-building, so will look into it locally. Meantime, I'll also keep looking for a replacement. Thanks for getting back to me. Mel

My Sherwood D20 three hose Freshwater Recirculating Pump is kaput! These pumps sometimes have A-09-R stamped on them. I need one, or a suitable replacement, desperately! This pump goes to a 1969 Chrysler 300 M440 V8 engine. See attached photos. I can provide additional photos if you'd be so kind to contact me using my e-mail address. Any pertinent advice or direction will be greatly appreciated. Thanks. A-09-R FW RecirculatingSherwood D20 Freshwater Recirculating Pump1969 Chryslr 300 M440 D20 FW internal
