Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Re: Bassett Headers
« on: March 03, 2019, 06:45:22 PM »
I was just wondering... I'n getting leaks at the Brass water injection fittings on the headers, cannot tighten any more, heat has hardened the brass, so i've order'ed new fittings. the question is should i put any thread dope on the fittings? also how about Restrictor Jets for the header water pressure T-Valve?

Just to make sure, there are weep holes on the bottom of the primaries next to the injection fittings. Your leak isn't coming from there is it?

Also how much water is coming out of the headers at idle? Should be none or no more than a fine mist.
You can get the restrictors, but you might need to drill them out to "fine tune" them to get the correct amount of water.
Or like Bob said, you can put a ball valve somewhere in the line that comes out of the intake manifold to feed the Basset tee. Some guys run this line all the way to the drivers seat and have the valve there so they can control the water manually at will.

I want to thank Brad and aqua and Chevyguy and bob and Vdrives and jet boats and unicorns and rainbows and the movie notebook and puppies and cotton candy and the moments when chevys don't start up and all the fuzzy wonderful feelings I have for scjb. 

This is our new way of the smack talk thread. Right aqua? Lol

Yeah Karma Chameleon is 1 of about 5 songs I have to change when it comes on.
But earlier today Rick Astleyís ďNever Gonna Give you upĒ came on. I think I was able to sing the whole thing and have know idea why. Some songs just have these hooks you just canít shake. And I donít think i wanted to.
But have Iron Maiden on Spotify to balance me out.

Hulls / Re: Winter hornet project
« on: February 24, 2019, 01:52:04 PM »
Decided to flip the hornet, blueprint the bottom and do a full set back.   Also having a 557 BBF with a NOS fogger built to drop in.  Hopefully sheíll be in the 80s.   Anyone have any experience with the hornet hull?  Thanks

Do a search from way back to the start of SCJB. I believe Ralph Brunt had a pink Hornet that he raced in Comp Jet. Ran pretty good I think.

Arcade / Gauges for my boat
« on: February 21, 2019, 04:48:28 PM »
The new gauges look great. One of these years Iíll get new gauges and those are what Iíd get, just with blue bezels.
 I think the gps speedo is supposed to be a bit more accurate (donít quote me one that) and a cleaner install. Me personally, Iíd ditch the speedo have a glass shop fill in the hole and put the key and buttons in its place.
The ďalarmĒ clock on the other side might keep track of ďrun hoursĒ, the amount of time your boat has ran. Kind of like an odometer for a car. Kind of weird it has an alarm with a snooze button.
These are just guesses and opinions.
Except the gauges looking great. That is just fact.

Thanks for the feedback.  I have had good luck with tunnel rams.  And a single carb with nos.  But I have a tunnel ram setup.  So Iím gonna try it.  But it may end up with a dominator and a big shot if my goals arenít met.  See you on the river this summer!

Look forward to hearing how it goes once you get everything dialed in. Iím betting you make the 85 mark. Good luck.

Yeah the site doesn't get too much traffic anymore. I don't know much, but I think that combo should get you to your goal no problem. It might take some fine tuning with your jet and ride plate.
Do you know how heavy your hull is?  Weight is a big factor with jet boats.

I think the owner or previous owner is/was a member here. Iím pretty sure that boat has been on here. Clean looking boat for a good deal if all it needs is an engine.

Iím still interested in this boat if itís available. Does anyone know how to contact the OP?
Click on his screen name. Depending on how you are looking at SCJB ( app or website) you can direct message him. It should send an email notification if he has one setup.
The last time he logged in was Nov 25,2018.

So ended up with this baby. It looks a lot like a Southwind. Is it possible someone shortened the transom where the pump hooks up? Otherwise looks very similar. Is there a way to tell if it is a SW?

Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Tapatalk

Yes sometimes guys shortened the pod so when the setback the pump, they had access to the clean out.
It looks a little different from the SWTD. They looked a little longer and more shallow to me. It is very possible someone made a mold from the Southwind and changed it up a bit.

If you use the search function there is quite a bit of info about SWTD setup here:

From your iPhone using the mobile app, when you hit reply, you'll see 4 icons at the bottom. One looks like a camera, and the one next to it looks like a square with triangle in it. Click the square and triangles. It should take you to your photos or say the app needs your permission to access your photos. Once you get to your photos, click on them and then they should show up in your post once you hit reply.

Not a piece of crap. The TX19 is one of the most sought-after hulls. Great ride and performance. Ervin Capps seems to be respected for building a solid hull. Make sure the stringers are solid and there are no cracks or delamination to take care of.

Welcome to SCJB. And yes, we like pics.  :thumbup:
