Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Octane choice
« on: June 29, 2020, 05:38:50 PM »
Quick question. I got into a discussion today at work. This dude was telling me he has to run 91 octane on his stock 460 for his boat. I told him i run 87 because the previous owner told me thats what he ran and it doesnt matter if I put in it, its gonna eat it up regardless.
I have a 460 with a rv cam. What should i be running but most importantly Why?
I dont know anything about my compression thanks guys

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Holley 4160 help
« on: June 23, 2020, 08:59:27 PM »
Anyone that knows about Holleys please. So as im putting everything back i realized that on the secondary side im missing the Metering plate BACKING PLATE. It was never there. Should be a gasket, Backing plate, gasket, metering plate not block like the primary then the float and bowl assembly. How bad is this going to be not having the backing plate

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Came up with this bright idea
« on: June 21, 2020, 07:45:53 AM »
Got everything i need to a complete rebuild on the old Holley here. After watching several videos i learned that i was missing the inlet filters which came in yesterday and boy oh boy. What are those things? Brass filters? Anyway... i decided to get some small tubs so i dont get anything mixed up or lost. Wish me luck. I see new tanks coming in a month or so we'll see what the new job brings in. Im starting at the San Manuel project with Penta is any of you are out there let me know. Oh and Happy Fathers Day guys.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Quadrajet or holley 3310-4
« on: June 18, 2020, 05:31:04 PM »
The previous owner of the boat has been awesome and gave me a quadrajet he had laying around. Now the question is which one should i run or should i sell both and get a 750 cfm with a mechanical secondary.
Im trying to learn more about the quadrajet cause i know absolutely nothing about it

I thought i noticed water when adjusting the float but it was hard to tell. While taking the carb off today i noticed drops of water in the manifold so i thought maybe condensation. So i found a clean clear container and let the pump line run into it and found this.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Now im getting a flat spot
« on: June 04, 2020, 05:18:47 PM »
I took the carb apart a bit and cleaned it out before putting everything back together. And im not seeing any fuel squirt like before when it was off. Im also getting a flat spot when i get it for a sec. If i accelerate slowly its fine. It also wont start unless i dribble a little fuel in it

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Few issues during yesterday run
« on: May 20, 2020, 07:48:30 AM »
First was a back fire from the carb again at first start. Thought i had the timing dialed but it is just not happenings. Ill be getting a new distributor but i want dependability over performance. Its also the second time i hear that my carb isnt the greatest for a boat setup due to the vacuum secondary but i did do some youtube mods to it and the boat performed better than ever with the rpms getting up to 4800 for a short sec when i got on it just to see if the mods worked. I was never able to get it passed 4000 but she woke up yesterday. Then after some laps and some fishing pauses it started acting up and eventually wouldnt start.
So my main question. Distributor and carb setup up on a bbf 460 with no motor upgrades that im aware of. Dependability over performance

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / In need of a trailer for rent
« on: May 20, 2020, 07:25:34 AM »
Being that i cant dock my boat over night anywhere near me. I think renting another trailer might be my next option to get my boat off the trailer so i can repaint mine. Anyone got a trailer i can use for a couple of days in Nuevo Ca.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Starter got stuck
« on: July 17, 2019, 07:57:52 PM »
Surprised the kids today when i got home and said lets go to lake perris. I hooked her up and took off. Got it off the trailer and was ready to go. I turned the key and the starter just kept turning i quickly grabed the back of the ignition cause my initial thought was that the ignition switch turned and wasnt going back. Seconds later i jumped to the back and shut the batteries off. Put it right back on the trailer and came home. Now i get a click at the coil but nothing at the starter. I have 2 battery tenders one for each battery. Ill be plugging them in to get back to normal hoping the extended starter turn over just drained the batteries but thats me just hoping. Any thoughts. Bbf

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Bbf 460 timing
« on: June 06, 2019, 09:08:30 AM »
Hey guys. So i have a bbf 460 and i want to check and adjust the timing. Im watching videos on youtube and most suggest the adjustment be done at 4000 rpm. How are you guys checking timing. I made a Y connection to deliver water to the motor and pump off the hose but my temp got too high. Ill be trying again with a new Y that has valve controls so i can deliver more water to the motor and just enough to the jet pump. Can i adjust the timing at idle ?
