We are planning to use the original design on the interior. The fact that the boat was all intact is the main reason We drove all the way to South Dakota to get it when we already had one that was the same.

MerCruiser 188 with the original logs is a tight fit, then with Glenwood Manifolds.

The MerCruiser manual states a minimum of 13 inches from the waterline to the top of the riser, so will have to see what it looks like when I get my risers on Monday.

The snails look like they are going to work very well, they fit under the original V-8 Engine cover, and the tops of them are about 15 inches above the waterline, plenty of clearance for manual steering although Iím not sure the power steering ram and valve would fit.
Glenwood manifolds and aluminum snails weigh 22 pounds each, The MerCruiser log manifolds with risers weighs 60 pounds each, for a net weight loss of 76 pounds.

Could you use external steering ram's ?
I've seen them on the Teleflex/Seastar web site. Guessing very expensive though.
Doug found a place that rebuild & sell hyd. steering systems.

Post by: thedeuceman on March 13, 2020, 03:50:01 PM
i have been looking at options, I think i could adapt the outboard cyl i have now to fit inside, or get the one made for a stern drive (one on ebay for a fair price). as far as the external go, looks like its mostly custom and for high power/speed use. i may fab something but i think it would be overkill for this application. the teleflex external are large displacement and require a vary large vol helm.

after several hours of grinding yesterday and today its mostly done, just half the transom mud plate to go.
speaking that, the motor mounts, stringer and the floor were set with that same super hard grey stuff :(
i got these carbide disks at harbor freight, they last almost 2 hours grinding on that grey stuff.

I'm still not certain what that grey stuff is, but I thought it was only present on the mid eighties boats.  Mine was cracked pretty bad so a little work with an air chisel got most of it.   I'll have to look for those grinding wheels my next trip to horror freight.

I got the rest of the mud plate ground out, and almost half of the carpet glue, even when those carbide discs get dull they still cut through fiberglass like crazy. They also work really good on the carpet glue.

Well the CV 16 has been sitting in the garage with junk piled on it since the beginning of June I guess.
Made some space in the garage
(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210101/c333374e3b994c7f5132bad3b9693256.jpg)
decided I should flip it over and check to see if it has the infamous strake cracks.
Both sides have fractures in the gelcoat, I assume it must go all the way through or at least the layup must be week there.

Must be a common Glastron problem from the 70s boats.
My V179 and the CVZ-18 both show racks along the strakes. If I replace the stringers in the V179 this spring I am going to add some reinforcement layers inside the hull.

Stringer and fillers between motor mounts and middle strake are bedded in

Stringer tabbed in

Floor marked and cut

Spacers added to raise floor and stringer height adjusted
(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210104/d951b23e93355b86301a3068fef0cb5b.jpg)
The material I have for the floor is only 7/16 and I wanted it flush with the top of the strake cutout.
Also figured dimensions for composite fillers for the top strake (I donít want that crease in the floor

in an effort to locate placement of extra martial under the floor to accommodate screwing the seat bases in i have discovered this CV16 appears to have less space that the GT150 had :(

That monster V8 has to occupy space somewhere right?  Maybe consider just one set of seats, the rest storage?  I like the look of the back-to-back seats, and yours look to be in great shape.  Maybe jump seats alongside the engine cover as second set?   IDK, tough call.

Post by: thedeuceman on January 05, 2021, 10:03:10 AM
Our current thought is to make the seats a little smaller, similar to the size of the ones in the GT150.
I think moving away from the back to back seats it came with would be The wrong Way to go.

The SS has jump seats but the V8 donít have enough space so it has steps.

Make them Benny and Willy jump seats?  Look like steps to us?  Deck carpet, and storage underneath?  Maybe make the B2B seats into a jump seat rear facing?  With your talent I'm certain it will be a neat solution.

Only the CV19SS had jump seats .. guessing that's what you meant by "SS" ..
The engine cover and stern on the V8 are different then the CV16SS,  but never noted how different ..
Title: Re: CV16 V8 restoration
Post by: Hyperacme on January 05, 2021, 02:13:51 PM
Guess ya could do CVX seats .. and change back to CV style seats if wanted or needed ..

Some CV16 outboards came with GT160 seats.
Gives you an idea of what room you would gain and look of two buckets.

I did mean CV 16 SS...
But I guess I was wrong about that I thought I remembered JasonĎs boat having jump seats in it. I obviously have a bona fide case of CRS.

Nice job!  Not to get too far out ahead but have you determined whether the current flake gelcoat is ďrecoverableĒ or do you need to re-do?  If re-do, will you go w flake?

I see a big problem, distributor is on the wrong side of the engine!  You're right, that is tight.   Is power steering possible or external?

There are pictures of Chris's CV16V8 with SBC motor, and cover just seems to be lifted up a little.

Ha!
I just brought an old style transom assembly with power steering home from the farm it wonít work the way itís set up because the right bank is set to the back so the starboard side riser only has about 2 inches of clearance off the transom

Engine cover will need to be made approximately 3 inches taller, and widened out a little bit in the front to accommodate the manifolds

The risers are too tall so I would need to rework them as well as the flanges.
