Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Why would this happen!!
« on: April 22, 2018, 08:23:53 PM »
So  I go to check my bildge pump,blower, lights and etc. None of them will power on when I pull their switch. Thinking dead batt or fuse but knowing I have 2 brand new batts this shouldn't be the problem. I checked the fuses none where blown.  I turn the key the engine will fire and no sign of dead batt. I pulled  the switches  on all accessories  and still nothing? So I left home and went to get some food when I pulled back into my driveway  I notice the running lights in front of the boat were on (I left the switch pulled out on accident) so I walked up to the boat and  turned on blower bildge running lights and interiors light. All of them came on no problem . Last weekend when I was on the water I had the same issues but also I wasn't able to crank the engine everything was dead. After a 10 minute wait I tried to crank engine and all accessories everything worked. I'm puzzled as what would be causing  this "black out" sorta deal.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / New HEI distributor and now this
« on: July 25, 2017, 08:23:41 PM »
installed a new HEI distributor on the BBC while getting the timing set I noticed a little smoke coming from this "part"(white insulator block thing) not sure what it's called exactly but  it was very hot to the touch . I know it has a orange wire from the starter a purple wire from ignition  then purple wire goes to electric choke on carb. so I took orange and purple wire off the white block aka "part"  and went to fire the engine, the engine would fire but not run. so I guess my questions are. is this common for this to get hot  or is it cause my new distributor. and  what would be the best fix since when I disconnect wires from the block my engine will not run. The old ignition was a Mallory "marine" point style

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Batteries and charging?
« on: August 30, 2016, 10:47:44 PM »
So how do you all "maintain" your battery during the on/off season. Do you use a "maintainer" type charger with float monitor all year round or only in winter time? I know most batteries liked to be charged different.  I'm in the market for a new battery and just wondering  what going to be the best bet. I've all used a maintainer on my battery whenever  it's not in use and never had a battery problem. Just curious how some of you go about?

Hulls / Lite lay up?
« on: August 18, 2016, 04:53:46 PM »
Just curious to see what some of the experts think about them. Are they practical for recreation use or are they simply something that should only be ran early in the morning and late in the evening and treated as a "drag" boat? Thanks in advance

« on: April 11, 2016, 01:29:30 PM »
My thrust bearing is bad so its time for a rebuild.  I know a lot of you guys recommend B1, Gs and a few other names floating around. My question is has anyone ever used Marine Industries West, in Anaheim. I have used them to get parts and the guys all seem super friendly to help. Wondering if anyone has any experience with these guys

Projects / My float is finally ready.
« on: April 07, 2016, 06:38:27 PM »
A little over a year ago my father in law handed this boat down to me for a good "family deal" we pulled his engine and everything else in the boat and he left me with the hull and pump only. Well at that point it was time for me to get busy trying to put together all the missing pieces.  Long story short its been a busy, expensive and stressful last 12 months. Im glad i finally got it to the point it is at many sleepless nights and beers went into doing all the work by myself.  I feel exceptional proud kniwing my father in law (who passed away before he coukd see it finished) woukd be super stoked to see tbis boat finally hitting the water again after 20 years of sitting in the garage. RIP Bud this ones for you!
