Whats your timing at ?
Are you sure the carbs are opening up completly?
Are you getting any, enough, or the correct amount of fuel pressure?
Are you getting too much fuel at WOT?

Try trouble shooting things one at a time like a check list .
The fact that it runs tells you something is not happening in the upper RPM's

How many hours are on the motor?, Is it at all possible the timing chain slipped, who installed the engine? JBP?

What else has changed? Does it rev out of the water?

Your timing is set at 20 base? Isn't a BBC's timing supposed to be around 10 deg. before tdc? Giving it about 32 deg. total.
If it isn't broke your not trying hard enough.

Most mechanical advance in the distributor is good for 20 degrees with an initial setting of 13-16 for a total of 33-36 degrees.

Double check the timing with a dial back type timing light.  Also check your balancer to make to see if the outer ring has slipped (bring it up to TDC #1 and see if the timing mark is at TDC)

Typical mechanical advanced is only good for about 12*-20* delta, on a car, the vacuum advance is good for another 12*...

You'd be surprised! Best thing is get the cam degree'd. Willing to agree with GT, sounds like cam timing out quite a bit. If cam timings out, lord knows what ignition timing is adding to the mix.

Cam timing F-ed, have you removed the rev limiter pill to eliminate it from the picture?

You can get offset keys. Does no good without a degree wheel and a dial indicator.

Run it again with a vacuum guage, bet it has low vacuum...


I have made this "boo boo" before (Skip, that would ba a mistake  ;) ) probably either off a tooth or on the wrong key slot...


A cheating way to check on the slipped harmonic balancer would be to keep bumping the timing a couple degrees until she knocks...If the cam timing is dust it will ping right away...

First, and Tom will chime in here eventually I'm sure since he built and installed the jet, Sounds to me like you have way too much impeller for the HP you have.IN addition to other issues, ie cam timing. ??? Dunno where your HP curve is at, but if you plan to run the boat at 6000 RPM , and that's where it's max HP is at, and you have, say 500HP, you should be running a C impleller.

This is info I gathered from Tom, correct me if I'm wrong guys.

IMHO You have bigger issues in that timing set change tho.

X2, unless that 454 has some serious nads, 6000 is a lot of rpm on an AB, I've turned a BC at 5800 RPM and it was a dyno verified 680+/- HP at 5500 RPM with the mufflers in on race gas, how worn was the old pump?

Trying to be constructive, not condisending, hopefully not read wrong...Jack and Coke both have bad attitudes.... ;D
