Coming to ypu live from lake mead the wind chilled out enough to seat some rings made about 30 mins of rpm changes and cool down periods...hit the go pedal twice and she pulled hard....go home readjust valves and another compression test, check oil...

On the initial tune of the motor we have it set up fat and happy...better safe then sorry...cant wait to read a plug...im not even breaking into where this motor wants to run at, but that will change...over time...im really happy with how it ran even though my nerves were through the roof the whole time...constantly checking shit...all in all it was nice being back on the water in my own pyle....

So today I read the plugs and they all looked consistant as far as color goes...everything seemed pretty wet, and definately rich...the color change on the electrode was in the middle of the bend and the threads telling me more timing, but one thing that kind of baffled me was 1,3,5,7 had more oil on the threads where 2,4,6,8 didnt seem to...definately a little rich...still need to check oil, but from what I seen under the valve covers looks good...the zalt oil I am extremely happy with...it seems to stick on everything really well...also I warmed the motor up today and started checking lash and everything seemed to really loosen up, but that is to be expected...all in all im really happy with this motor...at idle after warm up it holds about 60 psi...cold idle is just under 75 psi...i have a 10 quart pan and I am running 9 quarts with dual filters...dont think I need more oil...guess this is just a breakdown of my observations with the first test run, and about 1 hour on new motor....

If you see anything that raises a red flag lemme know

Also first compression test all cylinders were within 3psi of each other....

Just want to make sure I am doing the right thing

Just my humble opinion...Or even just an out loud thought.  :-\  

One head could be getting warmer/ cooler than the other, which could totally explain the oil up the threads of the plug deal. Without good water control (few if any jets do) it is difficult to regulate even flow through the heads...

I have seen this before on a small Chevy and I knew that the odd head ran cooler by almost 20*F...I never worried about it and it is sitting on my garage floor in running condition with a bunch of hours on it.... :thumbup:

Sounds bitchen BTW  8)

Well just an update I got some more tuning to do, but when dont you? Thanks for all the compliments on how she sounds...you should hear it revved up...anyway with my gps I seen 64 mph at 4500....the tach bounces around at 5200....i see a smaller impeller in my near future....as of right now I cant gun the boat out of the hole...it will spin the impeller...so a pump rebuild will be happening in the off season....definately time for a faster hull, but that will come with time...as of right now it feels nice just to be back on the water!!!

You know honestly after owning a few jet boats with bbf's I will never talk badly about them...its just that I prefer a chebby with the dizzy on the proper end....one things for sure I will never own olds, but being a chevy guy I wont knock the blue oval...except their cylinder heads....all in all I just enjoy jet boating...one of the few things im passionate about

I have all three and really can't bitch about any of them! Spent a lot of time this summer in Pickle (Chebbie) and the Charger (Olds). Neither as fast or quick as Moo was, but neither was built the same way either. Charger's getting a solid refresh and updates over the winter while the guys get busy on the Shrimpin boat (They been slacking). Pickles staying the way she is or being sold.

I'd give a nut to see what Nordies new momo would do in Pickle tho!  ;)

im sick of the petty "dizzy on the wrong end" comments, but i got my 2 cents.

I have a chevy and a ford.....and in my book, a chevy has the dizzy on the wrong end. Timing a chevy is a bitch. you gotta reach over the motor to turn it. On the ford, its right there.
