Since it's a fresh rebuild you had better make sure it was rebuilt for a marine application and not for a car or truck, otherwise it won't last you very long at all.  ;)

The biggest concern is your piston to cylinder wall clearance. We usually run .003 more in a marine application. I have seen quite a few guys run automotive clearances and get away with it, but I don't recomend it.

Since it's a fresh rebuild you had better make sure it was rebuilt for a marine application and not for a car or truck, otherwise it won't last you very long at all.  ;)

We ran into this problem when we first got a 454.  Water in the oil led to throwing a main.  We rebuilt it, and had the same problem with water blow-by, minus seizing the motor this time.  We retooled with a 396 b/o 402 with much tighter clearances.  I really think this a tried and proven theory and a big mistake made by a lot of people using automotive specs in marine applications.

ok i picked up the motor . it was  super clean .  i met the  guy    who    built  the motor at the   machine shop . the motor was   supposed to  go into  a hot rod  but  he  ended  up not needed  it  he said he went  throught the  whole  engine     you can tell  everything inside the  motor was  new  i think i  got a  good deal for   500 bucks. the last motor  i had  got water in   we are not sure how my friend said  it came in thorought the  exhaust  flap  when iwas   backing the   boat up to  fast . the  guy said  who i  bought the motor from  said it should be  fine  in my  boat because he built the motor  for a  hot rod   
i guess only time will  tell. worst case it  last me  a  season and ill have all winter to rebuild it . i dont plan on  running the  engine to hard 

ill have it  in the boat  by this  saturday  hopefully ill  p ost a video of it once i  get it   running

 here is the post

 I understand its a common problem with BBC/BBF motors not built to marine specs. We got water in the oil from too much pressure going into the headers.  the water shout up into the heads.  We  got a Basset reducer and made a manifold to control flow to engine and two headers.

A friend of mine had a lot of engine work done on his Elininator by a marine jet drive pro. The mech installed a water control valve next to the driver's seat. Whenever his engine is below 2000 RPM he shuts the valve off.

I've also seen, with success, a water pressure regulator on the engine's water inlet from the jet drive. I've heard jet pumps put out about 200 - 300 psi, cars only have ...? what 14 lbs @ 200 degree's.

My Roger's, if I ever get started on it, is going to have thr-transom exhaust for the kid's sake. I'm going to use a water pressure reg. on the engine. Home Depot.

I can't find my jet's water outlet right now so you're going to need to measure yours to figure out the size.   ???

Not one 460 BBF came with 4bt mains, they don't need it.
I just want to clarify that 429/460 blocks were available with a 4-bolt main, but certainly not a 460 specifically (only in the 429)...nor were the 4-bolt mains used in the marine engines.

Indeed, the 2-bolt blocks are very strong and 4-bolt caps are not needed in almost every case.  Finally, 2-bolt blocks may be converted to 4-bolt caps if absolutely necessary, such as in a blown nitro deal.

ok  the motor is  finally in the boat  ready to go

we tried to start the motor last night but  i think  my  carb   needs to  be  rebuilt  because its  just   dumping   fuel  and   fluding   out the motor  so im going to   get a  new one  today  along with   with  a  new  distributor and see if   i can  get it  to fire

the timing  seems to be  set    right   

is there any thing else i should look  at

Don't those two above statements say exactly the same thing about 460's?

i could be wrong but  i beleive that the pistons were different specifically the pin location.

I have two D0VE blocks.  The one currently in the boat has a two bolt main.  The SCJ block sitting on my stand has a stock 4 bolt main.

Hi Brad,

I know this is an old post but thanks for the link.  My Miller has a BBF 460 and this might be a good place to find out some general information.

Thanks,
Greg
