Title: My first jet. 69 schiada
Post by: sandeggo on April 19, 2009, 09:18:15 PM
heres a lil peach i found and bought today. 1969 Schiada 16' 355 SBC 10:1 rv cam berk B-pump. all O.G. including the upholstery.The plans are to either throw some towels over the seats and use it this season, or see if i can get a deal and  re structure the seating configuration. carpet is high on the list. funds are low but shes a runner! the gel is in pretty damn fine condition since it is a 40 year old boat. the glass in the floor is gorgeous. has stainless tanks.
i do need to replace the cables though. i gotta figure out what model morse they are.
forgive my ignorance, but i have never seen a pump nozzle like the one i have. its got like some scoop deal where the fin normally goes. anyone shed some light on that? also i got a extra set of edelbrock exhaust with it.

hey deggo, Nice boat...I say if it's a runner, hold the towels to the seats with bungees and run it this season...JG pump and that scoop thing is the reverse bucket.

I like it, that's a cool little find. Congrats ;)

Nothing wrong with a small block either, they run well and sip fuel like a fine Tennesee sippin whiskey.. :sly:

FWIW, i have a nozzle that will work a little better on that badboy if your not planning for a Place Diverter for a while.... 8)

Post by: sandeggo on April 19, 2009, 09:38:59 PM
interested in the nozzle, hows it work better? im new to owning jets, since its been a whole 8 hours owning one. im coming from a childhood of whackers so i will probably have a few questions.
Were taking name suggestions as well.
brown trout... ole lady says no way
then she came up with "east bound and brown" anyone see the show on hbo?

Those nozzles there have a bunch of material hanging down and experience some drag, the later ones are shorter, you will lose a little reverse action, but worth it in the long run...I will get a pic of it tomorrow night.

I will give it to you if you want it, just gotta get it to you...I would be willing to bet that there are a hundred of the later JC, JG nozzles down your way... :sly: (Everybody puts Place Diverters on their boats)......A boat that short may not benefit from a rudder..... ???    ;D


Forgot to mention the best way to budget for a new boat, everytime you have cash in your pocket, take all the bills under a $20 and give it to the boat    :banghead:.

cool, good info. so is it just cut down? i can do that, i'm a metal fab guy. ill take the one off your hands, price is right! i'm not too worried about a rudder, everyone i know used to have one till they hit the bottom at the river. everyone says they're only good when docking etc. i don't plan on docking the boat much.

Post by: LostOkie on April 21, 2009, 01:59:11 PM
Hey Kevin... I have the old nozzle and reverse bucket off my pump that I'll give you.  As for the mini hi-torque, there is a guy in Parker that builds them.  I've got his card at home I'll PM you when I find it. As for the logs and snails, if you wanna drop the coin to polish them a clear p-coat them it will hoild up fine.  My luck with clear p-coat in the sun is that it will eventually start to turn, but like anything else you spend the time doing a little up keep and you should be able to keep it looking good for a long time.

As for a name... Bo named mine "The Little Brown Jug." Since it won't be brown when I'm done I'll let you assume the rights to the name.

Let me know if I can help with anything.

brad, i think we might need to move this to the project forum, ha! today i had quite the busy afternoon.
started off scraping off the ungodly sealer, silicon whatever it was off the transom, and resealed it with silicone. i think it looks alot better.
Oh yeah heres a tip: old credit cards from thieving banks work good to smooth out silicone. i used wamu since they raised my rate from 8% to 31% for no reason

question on the steering rack, do the teeth on the opening in the rack box face the floor or the underside of the bow, or does it even matter?
Title: Re: My first jet. 69 schiada
Post by: IRRebel on April 23, 2009, 07:49:04 AM
Yes it does, more than one person on this site has installed it upside down and had the steering reversed. Don't remember which is the correct way though, I want to say on top of the steering gear.

Call Tom or search other posts here for it. The info is here, just no time to search it out for ya.

Ray

I lied, found it for ya

On a jet the cable exits to the left and the rack mounts to the of the pinion , Very rarely the cable will run to the right and changes this Tom
Title: Re: My first jet. 69 schiada
Post by: sandeggo on April 23, 2009, 09:03:52 AM
ya I knew which way thecable goes but my question was referring to the pinion, which I may have installed upsidedown, at least it isn't fully installed yet, thanks for the help

hit 2 snags today.
first i was beginning to finish the rack install and found out i need a new steering wheel adapter, quick call to tom got me setup.
2nd snag isnt so good. turns out the passenger side gas tank decided to start seeping. also tuns out the stainless gas tanks arent actually stainless, i was wondering why they were painted. im thinking about trying some of that epoxy stuff they use in motorcycle gas tanks, anyone ever used this stuff?

That one LOL, what's wrong with the one you have? I have both designs, the one you have uses a 43C cable for the reverse gate, the otheres use a 43BC (the B stands for bulkhead)..

FWIW, you will need; tiller (gotcha covered), bucket (gotcha covered), short king pin(gotcha covered), I also have a later nozzle for ya  ;), but you may need the hinge pin and the cable end hardware for the bucket to attatch to the cable if I don't find an extra one... :-\

Keep you posted!

If your wanting to get by till you get the updated arm simply make a small "L" Bracket to Screw to the arm (strap screws) with a large mounting hole for the bulhead style cable connection anchor !

good idear tom.
today i got the gunnel tank out and it was a tiny lil pinhole. so after much debate i went and got some jb weld. slathered that shit all over the area of the pinhole. jb says on their website that it can withstand gas, so i figure i will try it. i just dont have time to make tanks right now.
i got my shifter knob in, and got that all painted up. and i started putting the lights on the trailer. tomorrow after the good ole jb is setup, i will throw some gas in to see if she holds, if everythings all good, i will throw some mat on where i cut to tab it back in.
im hoping to make my deadline and be on my way out to the river friday morning. i gotta get some tires.

thank bo, when you guys headin out? i hear you on the black, my boat already has a black pinstripe. we had a good time at riches. i will take you up on that if i run into a snag. will the dominator stuff work on the berk? (new guy)? if so then i will just get your stuff bo and save gt the trouble of sending that stuff out to me.either way its cool to be offered free parts. this board is the shit!  everything went good today. got the jb welded tank dried up, put some gas in it and hooked up the air compressor to it, no leaks, so i glassed it back in. then mounted the shifter up. went to west marine, got a battery switch for dual batteries, and got a bilge with float switch. call it overboard but now ill be running dual bilges. whats the best way to mount the bilge pumps, i dont want to screw into the floor, epoxy?

Title: Re: My first jet. 69 schiada
Post by: Factory502 on April 28, 2009, 08:50:29 PM
That thing is coming togather nicely- I think that the dominator stuff will switch- If you want to come get it and try it you are more than welcome to- it is sittin in my garage taking up space- I dont think we are gonna make it out till first of June- my barge is in bad shape, and puck's is not far off, but he'll have me beat- fiberglass buckets would look sick in that thing- when is the first trip with it???

Lol, OH YEAH! I get it. Tried to keep a file on the Moo project with every receipt and a ledger on the front to keep track of what I had in it, yeah, after a week I said Fuggit because it was, A: Too time consuming, and B: Depressing to think I sank that much into it in such a short period of time, lol. (even kept beer receipts when I had help). I'm a P&L sorta guy, and that sheit was a downer!  ;D

Actually I think I'm still on the black side of it, even more so when we lose the "Dark" side running the economy.  A lot of what was not used on the Moo, or came off it, will find it's way into the Blue one and the Yellow Submarine.

Looks good what you've done, and done in VERY short time, I'm impressed!

I vote brown duct tape on the seats for now and call it good. (FWIW, I have a very clean set of brown seats in my BLUE boat that I dunno WTF I'm gonna do this winter about (They gotta GO), but no where near the configuration you have currently)

lol already did to put the cover on the boat. my buddy said dont worry, he has more of em lol.
forgot to add, she runs a solid fifty. thats seat of the pants run, ill gps er in 2 weeks.
friday, i ran it out and a buddy that used to race said it was running very wet and couldnt even see the keel. so we pulled off the step'n'trim tabs off the back and she lifted way out of the water. im getting better steering, as its not bow steering anymore. alot less twitchy and more predictable. felt like it picked up a couple mph as well.

Nice lookin float you got there.  ;)  I especially like the looks of your brown bimini top.  Was that something that came with the boat or did you add it?  I've been looking for the right one for my boat but some of them look just funky.  All together, very nice work and a good job documenting it.  Got more pics?

the bimini came with the boat, it's a nice thick one. Thanks for the compliments it was some work but I'm stoked. It still needs some things here and there but the wife said I can't spend anymore til the season is over.
Tom we shoulda went with the 12' cable, oh well. I'll hook up with you on some more parts when I get my allowance back LOL.

tom just a heads up, a buddy of mine is redoing his old family boat. its a 74 wriedt maverick. if glenn or kyle call you i sent them your way. first thing they need is a helm kit like i got.

took it out this weekend. when i got there friday i did the meguiars 3 stage and am stoked on the results.
found the carb is a 600cfm 4160 series holley.
got a new starter in parker this weekend. all ball bearing hand wound gear reduction for $105 RB performance, guy is super cool and has a great product!!!
went in to launch saturday with a total of 4 people in the boat. got to the water and the bilges didnt work. after 3 hours of chasin it and going to town to get new wiring stuff. just a lil loose connection on the ignition. :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: got on the water everyone had a blast. we didnt have any other issues the rest of the weekend. O0
im going out this weekend, i decided im not launching the boat. it will be too busy and allows me to get some work done on the boat. my buddy is gonna rebuild the carb and im gonna try to church up the motor a bit. it needs a little tlc. or maybe some clr. do an oil change and plugs too. anyone run synthetic?
anyone know if a msd box works with a delco hei? my buddy gave me a 6al and a blaster coil. and where should i mount the thing?

Yes the MSD 6al will work with the HEI.  I think MSD makes an adapter cover to remove the coil from the cap but I would just get an MSD coil that goes into the stock location.

Glad to hear you had a good run with it.

That's actually more expensive if you do the math. The kicker was I ran their break in oil first, which was 100 for THAT case, and to only run it a few hours was crazy, but I did it, lol. Now if I don't figure out where it's leaking from on the pan, this thing's gonna bleed me to death slowly like an ex-wife! >:D  (Small leak, but after running the boats as hard and as long as we did sunday, quite a pool of oil in the bilge and it needs about a half qt.)

Lol there's the push. But you want GOOD oil, use what I use in the moo. The Blue one uses VR1 50 weight for now. Gonna change this winter when she gets a new engine! (And yeah, I'll figure out the oil leak, just a matter of cat and mouse time!)

We'll figure it all out, now onto the Submarine and the new Hallett, just dunno where I'm gonna go on those, lol

well memorial weekend i rode the harley out, almost got hit (by a guy on the other board) when he decided to run a stopsign. didnt plan to put the boat in at all cuz i kept the ole lady at home. so i pulled the carb off and took it to my buddies house for a rebuild. the jets were so damn clogged im surprised it even ran. got the carb all rebuilt and ran it on the garden hose. way better. also found out the have it setup up as a 2 barrel with the secondaries locked shut. so a new carb is added to the winter list. the winter list is getting very long and expensive. i need jerry lewis to do a tele-thon to raise some boat funds for the winter re-do

8 of us had to help my buddies wakeboard v-drive off that thing. he center punched it so we had to lift and carry the boat about 30 feet for it to float. if i woulda saw you i woulda helped. i know how it is to have people look the other way. who drives 20 feet off someones bow and then hits the place diverter, when the guy is floating down the river sitting on the bow with a paddle in his hand? i had 6 boats all drive past me while i was paddling and not a single boat stopped. big river is starting to get like every other place on the river.

Post by: Rogers Hopeful on June 09, 2009, 09:12:38 AM
Yeah i have noticed that as well about big river.  sometimes i will go up river and float down and get the oar out just to stay away from the edges and for every 5 to go by one will stop.

ray i read on the other board, couple guys were having tossing problems. 1 culprit was the belt not sitting deep enough in the crank pulley, and the other culprit was having the oem pulley on the alt. the pulley was spinning too fast at the rpms we run. worth a shot i guess
Title: Re: My first jet. 69 schiada
Post by: IRRebel on June 13, 2009, 07:48:35 PM
I'm kinda thinking the same thing. But it stayed on forever until the Hyfire unit fell off the firewall and knocked it off the first time (good thing too, woulda destroyed the hyfire!). The belt flipped inside out and always is when it comes off. Ordered a reduction deep groove crank pulley, any ideas or anyone have a larger deep groove alt pulley layin around? Gonna try a new belt when the pulley gets here, hopefully that'll fix it!

well i finally got back from the river. did alot of stuff while i was out there the last 3 weeks. i painted the exhaust, made a new alternator bracket and got a new alternator. and put on the new to me holley 650. before i put on the carb i gpsed the boat and it ran 55.3 with a full cooler and the bimini on. with the same full cooler and bimini up it ran 58.7 but i had alot of chop which bounced the gps around and shut it off, so i dont know if that was my up river or down river pass. its nice actually having a 4 barrel that functions. i can feel the secondaries kick on. im very happy. next week i am going back out and im gonna put on another intake manifold just to try it.

well heres an update.
seems like everytime i go out something else needs fixin.
i jacked the motor up and replaced the flywheel. no more starter drag boat starts great.
couple trips ago the thrust bearing was growling. pulled the pump. this week started disassembling it, great news, the shaft is worn way down and the impeller is toast. found a local "legend" doing work out of his shop. this guy rules! hes sleeving the shaft and putting a new impeller on. the impeller has been cavitated to death. it doesnt look like itll be done before the blythe trip, but it will be done right. along with the new to me impeller, hes putting in a undersized brass wear ring. the impeller i have been running is a standard "A", per his recomendations we are going to a standard "b". with the rebuilt pump its like a dyno and i dont have the horses to turn the impeller.

The shop is called Champion's phone number is 686-11-88 or if you have nextel 152*172220*1 the owner's name is Enrique Romero, son also is the same name son speaks English.

found a guy in moreno valley to do the interior for a really good price off of craigslist...i hope he does a good job.
started measuring and checking the bottom of the boat. long story short the intake was 3/8'' out of center. a little grinding and fitting, got it centered up. started notching for the rideplate. this took forever. sawzall didnt turn out the way i wanted, so a grinder and beltsander helped to get it right. i painted the motor, and changed the timing cover. pulled the pan and the inside looked great. no metal chunks or shaving. bummed i found out its only a 2 bolt main. the harmonic balancer wasnt looking too good so that got replaced as well.

I think the newer heads have "induction hardened" seats, it's not an actual seat. They put a but load of electricty near the surface to be hardened and it gets super hot instantly right in that area then they prolly quench it something. ANYWAY, the older heads didnt have hardened seats and unleaded fuel kinda lets the valves beat the shit outta the seats. Just wondering if anyone hadda problem w/ this.

My English is horrible. I teach welding. Glassed in the front mounts for the tanks yesterday, then it got too cold for glass work. Got my boat name and CF numbers from moneysucker. They are really nice. Sorry about the wierd pic but I just did all this from my cell.

todays welding assignment will be to weld together some down tubes for the gas tank. i decided to make then out of stainless, and removable.
2 stainless swedgeloks, and some length of .035 wall stainless tubing.
(http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a376/00s-ten00/69%20schiada/689de012-1.jpg)
next step, hook up argon supply to tubing, and weld it out.
(http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a376/00s-ten00/69%20schiada/d434bacd.jpg)
the rest of todays welding assignment, will be to weld 2 bungs into one tank, and filler necks on both tanks

Busted my freakin ass all weekend and sanded sanded sanded. Filled some lows sanded some more. Did 2 lasts layers of glass on the tank mounts, and this afternoon cleaned the floor up to spray gel. Got the black in the gun and started spraying, then CLOG! Took the gun all apart got it cleaned, started sprayin again. Then the gel starts to light off in the gun... Pull the gun apart again, clean the living crap out of it and then finished laying the black on. Tomorrow the clear and flow coat goes on. Once this gel is done, it feels like I've got to the top of the mountain and the rest is all just downhill from here

Got a break in the weather this morning after my 8 am philosophy class so I drove over to my inlaws and laid the clear down, no feed troubles with the gun, but I did get some drips out of the cap of the gun. I have to finish colorsanding the boat anyways so I'll do the floor too. This is the first time I've sprayed anything besides primer. I should stick to welding
before clear

Meguiar's is your friend in this instance. Start with #9 Swirl Remover 2.0, follow that with #26 Hi Tech Yellow Wax, use Soft Buff 2.0 polishing pad for the #9 and a Soft Buff finishing pad for the wax, trust me I have spent a ton of money buying products to make the Hallett look good, this is by far the best shit I've found. For your aluminum, chrome and stainless, use Zephyr Pro 40 polish with some cloth diapers, the stuff's amazing.

Keep up the good work, and keep up the pics!

So being the broke ass boater that I am, I couldn't justify spending 50 bux on enderle's inline linkage for my dual carbs. So I went to the local off road warehouse and picked up some heims, went to home depot and got a little stick of 1/4 aluminum and made a linkage. The heims are 10/32 thread so I loaded a 1/4-28 tap into the tap handle to lathe the 1/4" rod down. Then tapped it to 10/32. 30 seconds on the buffer and I think it'll work.
(http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a376/00s-ten00/ec0cb4d3.jpg)
the heims had studs in them already, so I just need to pick up a couple 10/32 nuts. Heims were 10 bucks and the rod was 3

yesterday i did a little bit of work on the boat. got a bunch of stuff done on the motor. intake is bolted on, distributor is in,got a pertronix for it too. new fuel pump is on and new crank pulley is on. i also finished mounting my transom plate block offs where the steps used to be, installed the pump and transom adapter, sorry about the crappy pics. oh and i found a trick for getting the transom adapter on and still being able to use the bowl o-ring. my father in law had this stuff he got at a pool supply house called magic something, i lubed up the o-ring, then slid the bottom on until i could get 1 bolt in. then i just sat on the ground and pushed the top on with both feet. the transom adapter slipped on so easy, that i decided to do it twice. i forgot the rubber transom gasket the first time.

I may be dead wrong here, but are you sure you have your plumbing ran correct?  Usually with logs the water comes in off the pump, into the logs, out of the logs to the engine, then out of the engine to the snails. Maybe yours are different, just some food for thought.

stupid question of the day, will it hurt to have the carbs facing the way i do? the secondaries are towards the front of the boat. the reason i mounted them in that direction is it would be a shorter run from the pump to the carbs, and i have a push cable.

I wouldn't bother with it, did your guy not cover the back of the seat? If not, get some carpet that matches what's in your boat, put it there and you're golden.

Well he originally quoted 2 weeks, like 6 weeks ago, if it hadn't of been so cheap I don't know if I'd be so happy. It was hard to get a straight answer from him sometimes, but all in all I didn't have 1200 for seats and he wrapped mine for 4 with foam so I guess I'd do it again

Actually to give the guy credit if mine wasn't full on cutom it would have been quicker. I took him wood seats and got back what you see, he hadn't really done seats like mine before. If you have seats that just need recovering, I'm surre it would come out really clean especially cuz he'd have a pattern

tomorrow morning i gotta go buy carpet, stop by work trim down the rideplate and make a top strap for the battery box i made. i gotta get a couple fittings for the flexible fuel lines that i'm running to the pump. then when i get done driving all over san diego county and finally get back to working on the boat, i gotta mount the gauges, install the carpet, and wire the boat. hopefully by tuesday she'll fire up. I haven't started the boat since october. LOL in the first pic you can see my list to do.

oh and friday i bought a set of hooker headers with waterlines, but decided not to rush putting those on. it gives me time to clean them up and get them ready to install.

Wednesday we came out to the river, yesterday a buddy helped me wire the boat. After we did that we were timing it and got a fuel leak on the flare fitting that goes into the carb. The only line I didn't do freakin leaked. So while were fixing it... POP... CRACKLE.... FIZZ.... The coil explodes. Turns out my dumb ass left the key on. So I run into Parker and got another msd coil, while putting it on I notice one of the terminals is broken. So that was the nail in the coffin. Time to get drunk. Now I'm waiting till 8 am to go get a coil. I should have pictures of it on the water today

so yesterday i started to take the exhaust apart and start looking at shit. I ordered stainless turbo headers off ebay. yes, im making a poor mans through transom header. now after looking at it in the boat it should be fairly easy to do. im gonna get a couple 3.5" U-bends and weld them up to the header. im cutting the collector off and making a new one so it will have a nice smooth transition. it will kinda look like manifold exhaust when done and i think it will work better than my logs.

I'd love to run turbos but i dont know shit about them.
im cutting the turbo flanges off, essentially using just the 4 tubes. they will be injected, and the manifold dumps will be right before the rubber hose. hard to explain in typing. im gonna weld in injection bungs and drill some weep holes.

I think if it were me, I would make a flange and go from the flange to the TT...Easier, faster and cheaper, which is how I roll most of the time. ::)

The pan is too deep, I might shorten it if I can't get a deal on a used pan
Oh and the 07 was rated at 340hp and about the same for torque. From what I've read, people are gaining about 30 more goin carbed. I'm hopin to pick up performance. If it's not enough I can throw a bump stick in it and get me there

well made front motor plates, used a jigsaw, diegrinder and then used a carbide burr to square it all before i routered the edges. i used 2 different burrs, the one in the pic made a smoother edge for a nice finish. who needs a mill anyways?

That straight bar won't allow for any drive line angle to take up the slack , There is a good chance of a pretty nasty drive line noise. Once you get it set move the motor one or two degrees to the side and one or two degrees either up or down.

The plan is to have aluminum plugs made to seal the holes in the subfloor. And at the same time getting some slots and decorative machining done on the rails and motor plates

Actually, just be a pain in the ass. You really want to drop both the front and the rear simultaneously and only about an eighth of an inch on the high side....

If you only raise or lower one side, the "bend" needs to be dead nuts centered in between the two joints, no small feat as far as I am concerned...

What this does for you is makes the movement in each joint identical and will eliminate all potential causes of any harmonics and keeps the joints loaded and lubricated properly.

This is just my opinion and how I was taught, but it has worked on everything I have set up in the last 20 years, even an 800 horse marathon motor at 6500 RPM for 40 minutes at a shot. ;)

Not trying to bust balls, just want to see this awesome project succeed to the fullest, extreme skills as far as I am concerned.... :thumbup: :thumbup:

The intake is set at 4.9 degrees up and the motor is set at 3.7 I believe. These measurements are taken from when the intake was set with the keel level.
I still have final trimming and setting to do once I get new pto bolts. The bolts that were sent to me are unusable and getting new ones are difficult as it's not a common bolt.
The marine company that machined them said to clean them with a wire wheel, last time I checked wire wheels don't put material back on

Those are scary  :thumbdown:

On the drive line angle, not trying to beat a dead horse, but it is not just the angle differential you need to be concerned with. the angle differential is all fine and good, but.... :sly:  The angle needs to start at the center of the drive line joints, not at the motor mount or the input of the pump shaft.

I hope that makes sense, you don't want to "bend" the horsepower at the wrong spot in the drive line, it puts undue strain on the entire system including the crankshaft of the engine and the pumps thrust bearing.  :thumbdown:

It is actually fairly simple to figure out, use your killer pilot shaft to figure out where the bend needs to occur as far as where the center of the two joints ends up when installed with 1/4" of "slack" on the splined shaft of the pump, then simply raise or lower the rear mount to gain enough height to allow for you to end up with the angle differential needed by adjusting the front mounts height.......OK maybe it's harder to explain in words than it actually is to do....(I talk with my hands a lot)  :sly:

Anyway, I have somewhere a u-joint/CV joint 101 book around here somewhere, I will try to scare it up for ya.... :thumbup: :thumbup:

Best I can do for right now.... :thumbup:

http://www.4xshaft.com/driveline101.html (http://www.4xshaft.com/driveline101.html)

Notice in the conventional drive shaft (with one joint at each end) the the angle is on "both joints" not just at one end...This is crucial. 8)

The CV example even has the "bend" at the center of the CV, we could use CV joints on these badboys, but it's overkill, not to mention expensive.... :thumbdown:

Really want you to succeed... ;)

Glenn I am familiar with setting the u-joints. I've done it alot on trucks when I use to make 4link suspensions in my minitruckin days. I'm just waiting until I get the pto on because then it takes the measurement out of it. Right now everything is rough fit. It'll be right.

got some welding done today. last weekend i got the motor plates as done as i can get them without a mill.
boxed the oil pan in and modified the pickup tube. the pan was a deep rear sump. so i whacked the bottom off of it. then slotted the "front" part of the sump. Plated the bottom extending it forward. Boxed it in keeping the outside of the "old" pan in place acts as a baffle. this should give me close to stock capacity. would it have been easier to buy a corvette pan? YES, Do i have the money? NOPE

Well I had some leftover 1/8" aluminum from when I made my gas tanks last year so I decided to try and make a scoop. Got my pillow blocks from htp, and my ignition and fuel pump. Today I ordered a header kit for a sbf and ls1 flanges along with my remote oil filter kit. Should be a busy weekend.

got the headers fit and tacked, and last night i made the end piece for the scoop.
Still gotta buy a carb.
This weekend i am gonna pull the motor out for the final time to bolt the oil pan on, mount the remote oil filter, finish welding the headers, cut the hole for the scoop, mount the ignition box, and start laying out wires and hoses. I'm hoping to fire it up next weekend after a birthday party.
I'm waiting to drill the rail kit cuz i still dont have the GD pto bolts :mad: Man i wish stuff would sometimes just go right

finished welding the headers up. i welded the inside of the flanges with ER70S-6 GTAW rod and put about 1/2" tacks on the collectors with it on each tube. Then I tig brazed the outside of the flanges and the collectors with silicon bronze. took a bit to get used to running it again as its been about 5 years. they came out good enough for $150 headers

Few questions.
Can you mount electric fuel pumps sideways?
I have the selector valve on the transom and I'd like to run straight down into the fuel pump.
When wiring the fuel pump up, is it best to run it to the acc on the ignition or on a dedicated switch?
The overboard dumps for water, should these go out the side or out the transom?
Title: Re: My first jet. 69 schiada
Post by: 76 Bonneville on March 11, 2011, 07:26:05 PM
Don't know if it's right or wrong, but here's a pic of my transom. Tank selector and fuel pump.
I wired a seperate switch on the dash for the pump.
All my dumps go out the back. Most racers like it going out the sides. This is so they can see the water coming out.

I dunno if they can be mounted sideways or not. Don't see why not,  :sly:

You can run the pump either way. I'd run it, and the ignition, through an oil pressure switch though. That way. if oil pressure drops, or engine stalls or fails, boat catches fire, etc, etc, etc, the pump isn't putting more fuel into a potentially hazardous situation. Pickles wired this way, although I would rather it be on a separate switch just as a preference, but it is not. Moo's is such a completely strange, alien and different deal that I will not go into it on that thing, but it's kinda close to similar but not the same damn thing at all.  ;)

I wish my boats had the O/B dumps on the drivers side!  ;)

You're running A holley pump right,....you run those upside down if you want....no problem.  Run the pump through a relay....hit up an alarm shop if you don't have Any....10A will be fine.

Water dumps......run it it out the side in front of the drivers seat so you can see it.

You should be able to run an electric fuel pump sideways. Tapping into the oil pressure circuit isn't a bad idea and remember to wire up a relay so that way you have consistent voltage to the pump. Also, remember that there are pusher and puller pumps. Figure out what you need first before making a purchase.

I'm glad that if these come loose or break it's only minimal damage, the sinking boat part is what sucks
I think that's a new style thread locker

I just got my 12 point bolts the other day from Rex Marine. My boat uses 7/16"-20x1 The ones Rex sold me were a little long and needed to be shortened. I tried using allen style bolts but I did not have the clearence to torque them and that is why I want with 12 point.

Post by: sandeggo on March 16, 2011, 03:02:23 PM
Well I was able to get them in very carefully. They don't make a 14mm 12 point. It uses a 12 point because the way the pto is designed. I got them in and torqued. Now I'll just have to have another beer to get it out of the back of my head when driving the boat.

so I am trying to research on tuning this thing. taking the laptop over today to set the timing.
I also need to figure out what I'm gonna do for header lines.
Pat shoot me a pic of a tape measure on your bbc head exhaust ports i think its close enough that i can just modify a set of bbc header lines.

got the motor in for the final time today. plumbing,wiring, gauges, and little details is pretty much all I have left.

yeah everything is a half ass polish though. it will have to wait till next season to get the real deal. I can live with pits and scratches for this season.

Got mynew rack in the mail today. Also made some waterlines.
.5" .035" wall stainless tube, and 1/4" .035" wall tube. Total cost to make these water lines will be 45$. Sorry Bassett but 175$ is way too much for waterlines.

Well first day on the water went great!!! It runs faster than before. It's alot more fun now and is way torqueier.
I gotta play with the tuning and rideplate getting it dialed in.

After the last couple holiday weekends at the river I've come to the conclusion that this boat isn't made to deal with the chop of roundy round racin. Wife wants something bigger(story of my life) and I don't really blame her. I'm lookin for a 18-19.5 v bottom. Either a spectra or eliminator formula. Something closed bow that rides through chop. It's a shame what wakeboard boats have done to the river, but in big river there's just too many.

im in the same boat... my 18' rides rough.  movin up to a 21' daycruiser.  they're built like tanks and usually cut thru just about anything.

from an 18' owner, 18' isnt gonna "cut it"... no pun intended.

Post by: sandeggo on July 15, 2011, 05:09:24 PM
I dont have any desire to have a boat that big at this point in time. I like being low on the water. 19' would be pretty ideal. 19 spectra,formula,rayson, schiada all good 19' low profile boats that cut through the chop like a hot knife through butter. I would'nt be opposed to a tunnel either

Title: Re: My first jet. 69 schiada
Post by: N2GLOCK on July 16, 2011, 09:02:40 AM
I'm also looking at upgrading to something bigger as well. I currently have a 19' and I want to step up to a 21' like kaOtyk mentioned. I've never been in a 19' that cuts thru chop like a hot butter, but it definiteley will be better that what you have now. If I were in the market for a larger boat now, I'd offer you my Rogers. But with a kid on the way, I'm gonna have to wait. Good luck with the boat hunt.

well since nobody will buy this piece of crap I'm looking at another winter of working on it.
plans are:
do the bottom
make a set of stack tanks and put them behind the back seat.
paint the boat. Gonna go old school metallics and maybe some lace. capped and shaved.
paint the trailer
might make new headers.
