There is the 6 pac rod and then the LY - LY's are prefered by me as they are beefy but not overly heavy like the 6pacs.

Lets see some pics and some weights. I am going to be using them in my next build, so as much info as possible is good. I keep hereing how strong they are, I would like a bit more info.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / '08 429 cj build
« on: December 23, 2007, 01:07:25 AM »
This is a photo documentation of my '08 429 cj racing engine. This engine is bored .030" and has a piston to wall clearance of .009". The bearing clearance is .0028" om the mains and .0035 on the rods. The pistons are flattop Ford Racing/TRW, with a single valve relief for the intake valve. The block is a D1VE fully crioed and casting flash removed. The 1970 429 crank has a 3.59 stroke that we bullnosed and wedge cut. There is about 20hrs of prep work in the block. All the oil galleys have been drilled out to .500". In the lifter valley we installed two new oil drain backs and funnelled them to speed up oil drain to the pan. The 2 new oil drains at the front of the valley are positioned one to drain on to the Dist. gear and the other on to the timing chain. There are two oil drains in the heads through the block, that in most cases are half blocked. The first step is to place the particular heads that you plan on using for the build on the decks and install two inner head bolts on each head. Now you can run you .500" drill through the drain on the head and about a 1/2" into the block. Once all four hole are done make sure the heads are marked, so they go back on the same side. Now un-bolt the heads and remove them. Now blend and taper the oil drains so there are no ledges or steps in the drain. Now you can remover the small amount of casting flash in the lifter valley, the holes right above the cam. You want to make sure they are smooth and rounded. The next step is to flip the engine over to blend and taper the oil galley at the oil pump, as in stock form there is a ledge or step that reduces the flow by 25%. Next I focus my attention on the oil filter base. I blend and smooth this area as much as possible, then there is the threaded boss. You need to remove it from the block and place it in the vise and increase the inside diamitter by about 25% also.

The 2007 SCSC Nostalgia Jet season was very tough. There were a lot of ups, downs & close calls for Code Blue Racing.  It was very difficult to make each race, with rising costs & work schedules.  We somehow managed to make each race at the last minute.  I think the trip to Burley stands out the most.  We gave ourselves plenty of time to get there, at least one day ahead.  Sometimes no matter how much time you give yourself, it just doesn’t workout.  About an hour outside of Las Vegas, we lost a speedometer drive gear.  Any of you who know electronic transmissions, know they don’t work worth a darn without input.  So we drove the remaining seven hours at 55mph, all the way to Burley, hitting more rabbits than I knew existed, using twice the fuel & shot our travel budget all to hell.  We show up in Burley Friday morning at 11:30 am, just in time to suit up for the Comp Jet Shootout Qualification runs.  Being this was my first trip to Burley, I had to do a ballpark tune up in the boat.  We were close enough to qualify & take a Comp Jet Shootout 3rd place finish.  The overall Burley experience gave me more drive & excitement to carry me through the remainder of the season.
   The SCSC has been a great organization to race with, Ross Wallach and his staff did their best to get the jet boats on the water at each and every event.  Rolph Salmons gave the Nostalgia Jets an opportunity to put on some exhibition races at the NJBA drag boat events in Bakersfield.  I would like to thank All the NJBA staff for allowing us that opportunity.  The SCSC season finally had a fantastic showing for the Nostalgia Jets.  We had one incident & no injuries, but a lot of good racing. The Parker 300 Enduro has been my nemesis since 2005.  In October 05, I was lucky to make 8 laps, and then in October 06, we broke on lap three and were able to squeak out one more lap.  The 2007 Parker 300 basically was a huge victory, even though we were only able to complete 87 miles.  I feel very fortunate and thankful for the help and support that I have received in the past season.  We finished second overall for 2007 in the Nostalgia Jet Class.

 Our sincere thanks go out to the following very important sponsors:

 Ranchos Havasu Estates & David Varty, Veronica Paladori and Guy Hargreaves
 Atlas Plastering & Toby Clark
 Anaheim Chevrolet & Jay Photoglue
 GS Marine & Greg Shoemaker

 Independent Street Rods & Josh Edwards
Wet-n-Wild Twisted Motorsports & Brian and Dave 
 D’Cucci Boats & Don and Joey Cucci
 E Performance Marine & Donna, my wife, and Amanda, my daughter, without whose help and support none of this would have happened.
There are a few special individuals that have helped Code Blue Racing through this fun & exciting season.  These individuals offered support & technical insight throughout the season.  Some of these people helped me at the races on different occasions.  I want to thank Tony Wagner for stepping up, assuming the position of crew chief.  This is all new and exciting for him and it has taken a lot of his spare time.  For this dedication I thank him.  Art & Ray, without the two of you, those 87 miles at the Parker 300 would not have been possible, my extreme thanks to both of you.

I am very happy with the performance during the race, my best lap was 3.14, thanks for everones help.

Remember NO experience necessary!!! Just need to have a boat and tow line. If you have a ski flag that works too. No medical at all. Just to act as the eyes on the course and tow in broken boats.

Boat Showcase / Testing for Bakersfield
« on: August 28, 2007, 10:36:55 PM »
Being I only get about 45min before dark at my test site it is taking lots of time. But it is close and I have the support of the Bullhead PD if anything goes wrong.

 I will be testing today out at Rotory Park at about 7pm.

Quote from: pw383426;2759087
Ok got some GPS results from about 15 minutes ago.
These are for Jim's Squirtin Thunder boat

Any questions about motor and set up ask him, I was just watchin the RPM's vs. MPH in the passenger seat.

3000= 23.5mph
4000= 41.5 mph
5000= 67.5 mph

That was with the B- impeller in the Sanger Custom Sprint and with two people.

We may do a test every 500rpm just cause we can. The boat is responding very well to changes. We are going to do a turn test being some folks think the added rudders do absolutly nothing. We are going to put another loader in, the CP Performance Extreem Loader in just to see what it does.  We are playing with two impellers, one an MPD A and the other a MPD B-. All the info as of yet is done with the B-. There is alot of other info that will not be posted that we are learning and testing. Our Parker 300 setup will be tested in a few weeks. We still have to install our new pan and the oil cooler, as well as our new High Flow Dynamics Oil Pump. We will also be testing our HillBilly 429 just incase the the engine gives before or at Parker.

Anyone that wants to come out and watch is more than welcome.

Well the air was the great limiter. Corrected elavation was 4176'.
I was also checking my brakes out !

The B- impeller does not give the same lift as the A did, the boat runs wetter.

Here is a very short video;
