Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Header water injection question
« on: July 18, 2018, 09:37:04 PM »
I hooked up my water lines. My T-valve has a new ball and spring but for some reason my passenger side header is getting way more water then the drivers side. It looked like it was coming out of the weep holes. I had about a 1/4 of water next to the stringer and it had only been idling for a couple mins. The other side was almost dry.

The No Wake Zone / Shake at speed
« on: April 21, 2018, 10:13:34 PM »
I was running down the river at wide open throttle and I think my pump sucked air. I got a bad shake on flat water. Was it cavitation?  It ran fine after I let off of the throttle a little. Just want to see if I should look further into this. Other then this it ran awesome on Friday.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Repowering!
« on: September 02, 2016, 10:03:20 AM »
well the small block pushed a valve guide and since i have the means to repower I went to a drag racing buddy of mine to build me a 434 SBC.  He's expecting 550-600HP (old motor was 325HP trying to push a SS A impeller).  And its done.  All new parts from the pan up.  The 16'6" rogers should scoot pretty good now!

Fabrication / 3.5" tube bender
« on: October 30, 2014, 11:33:14 PM »
I have a 3.5" exhaust on my truck and want to get it routed to exit in front of the rear tire because I can't have my full size spare under the bed because it's got 33" tire on it and would rub the exhaust. Anyone have anything to bend 3.5" pipe or know of a muffler shop that has a bender that can handle that size pipe?  I have called a few places and the largest that can handle is 3".   Thank you

I'm in the lakewood/long beach area

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Problems starting when warm
« on: July 24, 2013, 06:56:03 PM »
So I got the new motor in a few months ago and finally got to take it out on monday.  Ran great had 79psi oil pressure while at speed and 60ish at idle.  Run up to the 2nd island north of big river sat there had a few cold ones and went to leave and it was hard to start.  Had to turn it over while pumping the peddle for a bit.7-10 secs.  the fuel was from april which might be part of the problem.  went up to the cove sat there for a bit and same problem.  it started a bit sooner than first time still was hard to start.  cruised all the way back to the park.  RPM's never above 4000rpm.  cruised most of the way at 3000rpm's and H2O temp was right around 110*.  Fuel issue?  I have a brand new filter on it.

Did anyone pick up an anchor yesterday?  Or see someone take a lead brick? My parents came back from the cove it was gone. I doubt it was anyone here but if you saw anything let me know.
