Engine Mechanical / Electrical / BBC rpm fix
« on: June 20, 2019, 06:37:27 PM »
Hello, so from what Iíve been reading my boat is supposed to rev at least to 4600 rpm. I have a 1992 carrera eclipse 20.5 with a 454 bbc with about 136 hours total. I do not know if itís been rebuilt or freshened up as I just purchased it. Motor runs solid and feels and sounds strong. Has a MSD ignition and a whole bunch of little goodies. I have an American turbine pump built by Tom Papp. Iím not sure what impeller is in it. When I go out I can only get about 4K rpm out of it at 56 mph. What should I start doing or looking for to get it to perform at what itís supposed to? What should I check? Thanks in advance for the help.

I have a indmar 454 with their log headers. I just bought this boat and keep in mind itís my first boat Iíve purchased.like an idiot I messed with the valve that controls water flow to my engine not knowing what it was. So I took the boat out for the first time and I opened the valve 2 1/2 turns open. I let the boat idle on the trailer for about 5 minutes and the temp gauge didnít move at all. I closed it to 2 turns open and took the boat out.just idling around my boat got to about 110. WOT the temp was just registering at 100 which is the lowest my temp gauge goes. After I came back from a run I could hold my hand on the header. It was hot but not unbearable to wear I had to pull my hand off of it. My question is should I keep restricting water flow until my boat actually starts registering about 130-140 at idle?

Hello Iím new to the board. I just picked up a 1992 carrera eclipse. I have grown up boating all my life but have never been in a jet boat. I have a really stupid question. I took out my boat for the first time and while floating around I was deadly scared that any little wake will roll in to my boat and sink it. So my question is how well does a low jet boat take mild chop stationary? Do I really have to worry about anything? I have a 6 month old daughter on the boat and do not want anything to happen so Iím overly cautious. Thanks
