Boats For Sale / 1980 Silverado Boats 19’ Jet Boat
« on: December 11, 2018, 07:49:02 PM »
1980 Silverado Boats 19’ Jet Boat

I am the second owner of the boat. I purchased the boat approximately two years ago from the original owner who ordered it new from Silverado Boats in Gardena, CA. The bottom is similar to a 19’ Carrera Eclipse and 18’ Bubble Deck. The stringers were replaced by the original owner and are solid, otherwise this boat is a time capsule. I bought the boat and restored it to where it is today while adding a few performance items. The boat has never been abused and is truly a throw back to what a classic river boat was and still is today.

Hull/Pump
· Full cut/buff after I bought it and has been waxed every few trips since then
· Berkeley split bowl pump with either an AA or A impeller. I’ve never looked other than visually checking for issues but the original owner had the pump rebuilt and put a “ski” impeller to run at lower RPMs for skiing. It looks brand new with no knicks, imperfections, etc.
· Hydraulic Place Diverter with stainless lines and a switch on the drivers left on the dash
· New shift cable installed last year
· Stainless steel dual gas tanks

Engine
· 454 Big Block Chevy
· 4 bolt main
· Polished Dooley scoop and arrestor (has air release holes drilled in bottom of scoop)
· Edelbrock Victor Jr. polished intake (bought new and polished last year)
· Polished Hardin Marine valve covers
· Large oval port heads (not peanut heads)
· NGK-2953 platinum spark plugs (replaced last year)
· Holley 850 double pumper carburetor (rebuilt last year)
· 2’’ 4 hole carburetor spacer (new last year)
· HEI Chevrolet performance distributor (new last year)
· Taylor 10.4mm plug wires with loom separators (new last year)
· Carter 120 gph mechanical fuel pump (new last year)
· Rewarder ceramic coated water injected headers (they have been run dry hence the bluing, I have recently added a softer spring to the Basset T valve to run water at ¾ throttle and above)
· New throttle cable installed last year
· Chrome ski tow (replated last year)
· Motor has never been disassembled per the previous owner. I’ve had the valve covers off and that is the extent of my knowledge of the top end.
· Oil is changed every few trips with VR-1 with an AC Delco ADO-PF35L filter
· AC Delco fuel filter (ADO-GF157)
· Rebuilt starter last year
· New belt last year

Interior
· Original interior in good shape with a small separation starting on the passenger seat (bottom seat cushion) and a few small imperfections but otherwise in good condition considering its age
· New subfloor when the stringers were replaced with drain for under the subfloor that has a PVC fitting that is always removed after use
· Sierra Amega gauges installed last year
· The water temp gauge is not currently working and I haven’t had time to chase it down. The old gauge worked but I’m not sure what the issue is. Block flows freely so I haven’t made a conceited effort to figure out what the issue is.
· I have a matching hour gauge to match the set just never got around to installing it as it came on backorder after I installed the others

Trailer
· Tandem axle boxed with a 2’’ receiver
· Rewired with new LED lights last year
· New inner fender well wood/carpet last year
· Overall in good shape but could use paint
· Bunks have the classic shag carpet
· Riveted modular rims with two year old tires with approximately 2,000 miles on them
· No jack on the trailer but there is a threaded pole at screws into the trailer near the tounge with a heavy three wheeled stand that it fits into which makes moving it on flat surfaces a breeze.
· Stainless transom hooks with billet fender washers and new transom tie downs

I am sure I am missing some info but this boat has been bulletproof and was a really fun project but it is time to thin the herd. I only ran the boat three times this past summer with its last trip being this past weekend (12/8/18). It ran flawlessly and is a turn key boat. The boat has always been stored indoors and it shows. I will likely regret selling this boat but I’d rather see it be put to its intended use than sit. The boat is in Parker AZ but I can pull it back to Orange County CA for a cash-in-hand buyer. My work schedule typically only keeps me free on Sundays, so if you want to discuss further shoot me a PM and I will give you my number so we can chat first and then coordinate a time to see the boat.

Price - $9,000 FIRM. By firm I mean I will not accept a dollar less. I don’t need to sell the boat, but if you show up with $9,000 cash I will sign over the pink slips (both in hand and the boat is registered through 2019 while the trailer has perm tags, both of which are in my name) and give you all the spare stuff I have to go with it such as matching orange lines, medium box anchor, orange buoy, etc. (will not be sold separately). Not interested in any trades.

Jet Pumps / Dripping water - Berkeley
« on: August 22, 2017, 10:50:57 AM »
Noticed there was some dripping water at my pump shaft below the zerk fitting when I dropped my boat in the water and when on the beach from the area as shown within the attached pic. Was not leaking when running from what I could tell. I haven't greased that fitting in a few trips. Do I just need to add grease or is there a bigger issue? Boat will be coming home if need be so trying to plan accordingly. Any help is appreciated

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Throttle Return Springs & Pedal
« on: May 30, 2017, 12:19:52 PM »
I've been changing quite a few things up on my new boat and wanted to see what you guys are running in regards to return springs. My foot pedal has a return spring within (goes on the outside of the cable and runs all the way to the cable end). My new throttle cable bracket also has dual return springs which is making for quite a bit of resistance. The throttle cable bracket is about as loose as I can go without it having no tension at close. Should I remove the return spring within the pedal?  Pics attached for reference.

Note: The last picture was when I was mocking things up before the cable was connected to the foot pedal, the return spring adjuster is now almost all the way forward as noted in the second picture.

Pay no attention to the rats nest of spark plug wires those will be sorted out once I time the boat.

Jet Pumps / Berkeley Thrust Bearing Over Greased
« on: May 22, 2017, 03:24:44 PM »
Took a look through the inspection hole in front of the thrust bearing on my Berkeley jet and there appears to be quite a bit of grease visible....almost as if it has been over greased. Should I be concerned? If so, what is the easiest way to clean it up to make sure its not over greased?

Boat Insurance / Call Nikki!
« on: May 05, 2017, 04:08:24 PM »
I had meant to post this sooner, but shortly after joining SCJB I picked up a new boat and wanted to get it insured. On a Friday night (and I don't mean 5:30pm) I decided to give Nikki a call. I was in the middle of the busiest time of the year for work and thought.... no way she picks up but at least I can leave her a message and she can give me a call back on Monday so I don't forget/get distracted by work. WRONG! Nikki not only answered my call, she answered a ton of questions that I had and got everything ready to rock and roll for my policy. After shooting over some pictures of my new boat on Sunday evening I got a call on Monday morning from Nikki letting me know that underwriting had been completed and my policy was in place.

Nikki went above and beyond to help me with my insurance needs and did so lightning fast. I could not be happier with my experience and am glad I can support someone that is into boats just as much as I am. If you are looking to get your boat insured, or even if you already have insurance, I HIGHLY suggest you contact Nikki. You will not be disappointed.

Thanks again!

Hulls / Packing Peanuts (See Pics)
« on: April 29, 2017, 06:39:28 PM »
Alright, the title speaks for itself. Why would the previous owner (original owner) pack the bow of a closed bow 19' boat full of this garbage? I'm familiar with stand up jet skis built for surf riding being stuffed with pool noodles in the event of losing a hood but what's the purpose here?!?

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Holley Throttle Bracket Input Needed
« on: April 25, 2017, 09:50:03 PM »
Looking to find what throttle cable bracket to get for my push style pedal / cable setup. Going from a stock BBC intake and Edelbrock carb to a Edelbrock Victor Jr. with a Holley 850. Attached are pics of the existing bracket which is clearly not tall enough once I attach the linkage to the top push mounting position, let alone with a 2" carb spacer. Looking for the sano setup, so what's the secret sauce?  BTW that Dr. Earth spray is the shit for white flies, lol.

Alright fellas so I tore down my engine this weekend and am ordering up all the miscellaneous odds and ends to get it back together and ready for her maiden voyage. I currently have the below pictured mechanical fuel pump and am looking for suggestions on what to replace it with. The pump will be feeding a stock 454 with a Holley 850, Edelbrock Victor Jr. with O/T rewarder headers. Block is stamped 14015445. I'm flexible on price just want something that will be as reliable as possible.

Links to purchase and/or part numbers are appreciated.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / New boat - Carb and header questions
« on: March 14, 2017, 10:58:16 AM »
Just picked up this original owner Silverado with a stock BBC. The boat has been sitting for a few years so it needs some attention.

Looking for some help identifying the carb on as I would like to buy a rebuild kit and pick up a traditional Bassett style air scoop.

I am also interested in ceramic coating or re-chroming the headers but not sure what my options are there. They have been painted black every year by the previous owner and presumably sanded down each time so I'm not sure what they would even look like if I tried to go this route. Thoughts?

I am also in search of a complete hydraulic place diverter if anyone has a lead.

The No Wake Zone / What to look out for... (warning new guy post)
« on: January 19, 2017, 09:42:55 AM »
New to the forum but have been lurking around for a few years. Finally deciding to pull the trigger on a jet boat since I sold my Ski Nautique. I have a 1970's Rogers lined up to take a look at this weekend. Its got a 455 olds in it (not my preference, bow tie would be better) and looks to be in fair shape with the upholstery recently redone. The price is right and won't sting too bad if I don't use it as much as I would like.

I'm looking for any suggestions on things to look out for that are unique to jet boats (olds motors, pump, hull, etc.). I've owned ski boats, jet skis, and motorcycles so I am familiar with the general things to look for but wanted to see if there is anything specific I should be on the look out for. Any input is greatly appreciated and will be repaid in beer on the water this summer.  :beer:
