Random Boat Parts For Sale / Trailer Refurb.
« on: August 18, 2015, 07:08:43 PM »
So I've been wanting to refurb my boat trailer for a long time just needs some good ole TLC, minor repair, small welding and paint. etc.

I have been looking for just a good trailer by itself and swap the boat over, the problem is my boat has a really really wide beam I have not found a single trailer that would fit the width of the boat and it's rather more a flat bottom then any kinda of v or even semi-v which has made it impossible to just find another good trailer and make the swap. So I'm looking for someone reasonable & Local ish who can take this on.   

It can be a shop or someone that can do it as a side job. 

Any recommendations would be great.

« on: July 15, 2014, 05:50:55 AM »
So I have always wondered what angle/degree should my fixed trim tabs be set at? They are original as far as I know, also same question for ride plates, I know it's a little vague but is there a general rule of thumb? 

Thanks for any help, my are not adjustable at the moment but I will be looking for some turnbuckles if it's worth it

BBC w/ Victor Jr intake & Holley 750 double pumper

So after re-jetting my carb to
76 primaries & 80 secondaries this is what my plugs look like, the big stutter I had is mostly gone but I still have to give it like a 1-2 pump to get it going from a dig.

Plugs have one lake day on them running it pretty hard

They look a little light still to me but I am not to sure & would like some more experienced guys to help me out.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Not sure why this isn't blocked off?
« on: June 25, 2014, 05:27:02 PM »
So I've been getting oil leaking/spilling and I tracked it down to this hose I believe it was just there to vent? It just wrapped around and over my bell housing and was just sitting there
Is this common?
Should I just plug it?

And it wasn't a lot of oil just enough to keep me checking and scratching my head tracking it down.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / How much oil? Oil pan volume?
« on: June 18, 2014, 04:21:38 PM »
So I have a question, I have an aftermarket large 8-12qt pan. The pan was already on the motor and I can't find any markings on it for a manufacture to identify what size it is.

Only picture I have until tomorrow.

My questions are - Can you figure out the volume by measuring the oil pan externally (which I'll do tomorrow)

If I do figure out the total volume, does how much of that volume should I actually put in it?

The stock dipstick was used - is this going to be accurate? Like it was a normal pan?

I am looking for a complete rub rail for my boat, right now it's just

Better air flow?

I'm thinking of going to a through transom headers, if anyone has some I'd be willing to sell my Edlebrock logs or trade for some. Let me know if anyone wants them or wants to trade.

I've got a mild 396 steel crank forged internals with a Victor Jr. Intake & a Holley 750dp. 
I need to do the plugs, is it worth getting "good"/"perormance" plugs especially if I'm still tuning my motor & what's a good plug gap?

BBC 396 .30 over with a steel crank, forged pistons, heads are 206 casting oval port closed chamber, mild cam, 1.7 full roller rockers, intake is a Victor Jr topped with a stock jetted 750 double pumper. If anyone wants to help ill supply beer! I'm in Lakewood/Long Beach area.

The No Wake Zone / Best place to test locally
« on: April 08, 2014, 11:30:36 AM »
Hey everybody, I live in
Long Beach/Lakewood area and I need to get my boat in the water for some testing just basic checking timing, plugs etc. nothing to crazy a couple launch's
and stuff. Pudding stone is the closest, besides Marine Stadium "salt water" which is about a mile from my house. Any info would help. Can I go to pudding stone? Is it an absolute NO to put it in the salt water for less than an hour?

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Carb question
« on: February 27, 2014, 09:02:33 AM »
I'm still learning about Carbs and I just picked up a Holley 750cfm DP and I am rebuilding it, the question is I pulled off the bowls and metering blocks, should one side have larger jets? And currently it has 98's in one metering block and 90's in the other, what would be good jetting to start? The motor is a .30 over 396 steel crank, forged pistons 10:1, mild cam maybe 525 lift, 1.7 full roller rockers and a Victor JR. Intake, it spins a "B" cut impeller around 5300.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Carb Rebuild/Tune Help
« on: February 23, 2014, 05:27:17 PM »
Hey everyone I just picked up a holley 750cfm double pumper *at least I think it is* because the choke horn is milled off so I have no list number on it, is there any other way to tell the type of carb?

I am also looking for someone who is pretty knowledgeable in carb rebuild and tuning who can show me some of the in's and out's of the carb, I'll supply beer and parts!!

I know the basics but I always want to learn more! Help!
