well today after 15 years of abuse and going from hell and back multiple times and just tune the new 600's to run right the boat ran the best it ever has. On the last run around Elsinore, the olds finally decided to call it quits  :banghead:. Well you know what that means upgrade and rebuild time (p.s. it really embarrassing to get pulled back to shore by a jet ski)

If you want to save some money on some internals for that, I have some pistons, a crank, and a windage tray that I would love to get of my shelf.  Cheeeep!           John 951.454.1934

For an Olds?  :screwy:    Man you got it bad don't you?   :banghead:

Sorry dude, I just had to.    From one Olds owner to another, I hope it works out for you.   The pistons are the L2323  .060 over.  These are very popular with the drag racers I know.  If they will work with your package I'll make you a great deal.  Either way I hope to see you back on the water sometime this year breaking off a Bowtie or two.   :thumbup:

well found more stuff inside the pan. on the plate half is bearing the other half is pistons. so while i was taking off the broken fiber glass on the tanks the battery box felt little squishy so i broke that out and it was dumping water out it had about a half gallon inside of it. how should the pump fell when turning it? rightnow its easy to turn but sounds a little rough.

Use your hose and squirt it in the pump really good then spin it again,  the rough sound should go away, if not rebuild would be in ur future is my guess.  when you tow ur boat road grime and what not get into the jet.  after a long tow I always rinse mine

well here's how the motor went it spun two bearings, welded one together, broke the number number 4 piston wrist pin area in half, bent the intake valve of that cylinder, the crank and the two rods were trashed
as of now all the oil mods are done, all the machine work is done, cam bearings are in, most of the head work is done,  the rotating assembly is supposed to be here next week.
then we can order the mondello 10 quart pan pump and pickup and the valve train.
while ive been waiting i've been doing a few little things here and their like to make things look nicer i got rid of the spectre fuel line and changed it to a earls. ive just been polishing
