The Official Tru-Trac [I, II, III] & Falcon Thread

Great looking boat...mine is essentially the same.  I would say that idle RPM is 600 - 750 and it drops about 150 RPM when I drop it into drive and when I do it's buttery smooth. My does have a bit of a clunk when going into reverse, but it's not concerning...yet. Could be your damper plate or you may need a transmission rebuild.

Hey everyone!

Just picked up this 82 trutrac!  she needs some tlc so I was curious if anyone had a good website for oem parts?  might be a stretch to find these old parts but thought I would ask!  thanks for your time

The three best places I've found for parts are:

1. Discount Inboard Marine: https://www.skidim.com/

2. Great Lakes Skipper: https://www.greatlakesskipper.com/

3. Ski Boat Parts Online: https://www.skiboatpartsonline.com/index.php

The real trick to finding what you need is figuring out what will work on your boat off of other tournament ski boats of the era. That will include Mastercrafts, Natiques, Supras, Supremes, Ski Brendellas, American Skiers, and so forth. The drive trains and most of the underwater hardward were the same. I was recently talking to Ron at Ski Boat parts online and he said there was a lot of similarity among the boats built in Tennessee, but things got more difficult to match up when it came to the west coast boats, like your ski Centurion. 

 

Good luck and post questions here. We'll do what we can to help. Also some of the other brand boards, where there's lots of guys who've worked on older boats will be helpful too...if you ask nicely.

I need to order a starter for my 1991 Centurion Falcon. It’s 6 hours away. Can anyone tell me if the 351w used in these boats are CW or CCW rotation?

FYI, it was standard rotation. LH, Clockwise.

See if this helps: 

Starter Motor Rotation   looks like it's based on location and orientation of the starter motor itself.

      Just read your message regarding restoring your Barefoot Falcon.  I have a 1991 Barefoot Falcon with exact same floor issues.  I also had to replaced the stringers and am in the process of replacing the floor.  My question is regarding the need to replace the foam.  Like you I have several hundred pounds of saturated foam removed and I am not certain to replace it or leave it without foam.  Do you are anyone know if the foam is necessary for any structural support, or is it just for sound and flotation?
