Split bowl with mini droop and diverter
New SS tanks
Boat has some paint damage do to gas leaking out of fillers.
4K take it with out motor.

So boats back together runs awesome so next big concern, the tank. Looking for someone or shop who can cut out the old fiberglass tank and build a 15-17 gallon aluminum one. Don't want to go side tanks cause she rides so nice in the chop with the extra weight up front. I'd pull all the seats out and cover the motor for them. Gotta get this done pretty soon

So any suggestions please let me know

So the boat had logs and now going to headers, any tips on how to make the holes bigger? need to go from 3 to 4 inch, some have said mount plywood and use a hole saw but seems a little sketchy. I was thinking using a router and slowly open it up. any tips or help would be awesome.

The Parker Strip / Sand Bar Resort
« on: September 14, 2015, 02:53:16 PM »
Just got home about an hour ago, motor wasn't ready so just our friends boat. Didn't do a lot of running but got some good racing in last night at sundown. Orange and white Southward Tunnel drag had a harry moment right at Foxs. Never been to this resort but loved it, found out you can store a camper trailer for 50 a month. They will set it up and put it away for you so of course we started looking at trailers on the way home.

So question is has anyone had any horror stories of this place? owner was way cool plus we like the fact you can be on the water with your boat right there.

Like it says new never used stored insided. About 300 bucks from the site will sell if you pick it up 260. That's a hell of a deal let me know

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Starting a new motor
« on: September 25, 2014, 02:28:35 PM »
So crank is shot along with other parts. So now it's time to start a new motor build. So now do I go big block or small block and Ford or Chevy. I know a big block will be easier to sell down the road.

Anyone have a line on either that need rebuilds, run but on the cheap or just the block and crank. Please let me know thanks

So looking around and there are so many options and I'm confused about what I should be looking for. Not sure what brands I should stay away from and what ones are safe bets.

I'm over thinking all of it and just want it back on the water any suggestions for a 455?

Another subject I've been reading up on and wouldn't mind some input from the jet side.

How big can you take a 455 to? Trying to read up but it's all related to cars not jets.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Crank options
« on: August 24, 2014, 09:55:03 AM »
So looking for some input and options for fixing or replacing my crank. I didn't brink it home with me now kicking myself for not. Can you have a damaged crank fixed and is it okay or will it be an issue after awhile?

Since the block is already set up for the old crank would having it fixed the smarter thing to do or just get the same one new?

What are some pluses of going new? Stronger more power?

If I go new I will have to have the block machined to the new crank correct?

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Motor shop
« on: August 04, 2014, 05:18:46 PM »
Looking for a reliable shop to tear open the motor and find out why the motor did what it did. From Ventura to Orange County would be fine but closer to me would be nice. Need to get this taken care of so can move on to getting the 454 started.

Thanks guys

So from my last post.. our rebuilt motor with about an hour on it broke down. Looks like over heating was the cause of rod knock. I did some research on how an olds 455 should be plumbed. I noticed the diagram is different from mine. Could this be the cause of motor failure? Here are some pics
