Lake Havasu / Re: Havasu on Big Weekends
« on: May 08, 2019, 04:24:31 AM »
Be very careful. The guys with the the big boats think itís a game to sink the smaller boats. Had two come by us when I was in my buddies boat. Had another friend having issues first time out with his and his went under. Just be aware. If the winds pick up you can get some good white caps out there too. Otherwise very early out and sunset coming in.

Abel is a good guy. I saw your boat when I was there checking on the progress of my boat. Abel is very reasonable. I have seen his repair jobs as well as complete rework. He goes by KNS Custom Boat Repair (928)246-0361.

I know you said itís not a exhaust leak. Video wise it sure sounds like it. If it were me, I would straight edge the logs and exhaust flange. To see just how far out they are or if they are. I have never seen this happen to the 429/460 but on the Cleveland and midland heads they crack at the sharp radius by the head bolts. The 460 head does not have the same machine edge but I would look there as well.  Where the port protrudes out from the head.

How wide are you looking for?

Since the heads are off. Set the heads up so you can pour solvent into the ports. Check for leaking valves int and exhaust. With the video it is hard to differentiate noise. I agree it does sound like a exhaust leak. Also, clean the mating surface for the exhaust on the heads and logs. Then take a straight edge to the surfaces and see what you have.

Itís a ratchet device. If you loose power for whatever reason it ratchets. If you want full disengagement, grab the handles and pull back. To reengage grab the handles and move it forward.

I know you replaced the oil filter adapter gasket already. By any chance did you check to see if the adapter is still flat or maybe something left on the block so it is not hung up? In one of the pictures it looks like the passenger rear (block and head) are wet. This could just be paint that ran. Iím not sure if there is a optical illusion on another. Is the rear motor plate sitting on the boat floor? Probably just me.

I have had the plug on pump relief pop out on my Windsor motor. If I remember most 385 series oil pumps have a cotter pin that retains it, I just do not remember. Preoiling the motor will tell you a lot. If it started to get sluggish I personally would pull the filter and cut it open. You might even do a bearing check to be safe.

The plug is located behind the timing chain. So you would need to remove the timing cover and chain to access it. Remove it drill it clean it reinstall it. 20/50 can be thick on start up once it is warm it should be fine but if you decide to run it up at a higher rpm while the oil is cold it can build a lot of oil pressure. The more oil pressure the harder it is on the distributor pin.

There are two different type of roll pins. There is the standard type and the type that looks like a carpet that is rolled up. Meaning multilayered this is the type msd distributor come with. The wear on your gear does look to be on the low side, I would take a flashlight and look at the camshaft gear itself just to be safe. I have seen thicker oils give the stand/regular roll pins a problem. Some guys used to drill a very small hole in the front oil plug directly behind the distributor gear. This would help with premature wear a .030/.040 hole is good.

« on: October 02, 2017, 07:08:23 PM »
Common problem is the body on the Holley carbs warp over time. This is due too over tightening the bowls usually. Heat also will distort the body over time. I have seen brand new carbs do the same. Generally from your description of what is happening that is the most common issue. Check your fuel pressure  as well I do not like more than 5.5 psi. Too much effort for the needle and seat.

Single carb on a tunnel ram is not the greatest fuel distrabution. Make sure the squirter jets are working properly. If so it might be just not enough fuel to ALL the cylinders.

Worked for a shop years back. We built a BBC for a jet boat. 1/4" arm in it cam out to a 505 cid. I do not remember the oil pan brand, I do remember the windage tray was a Incorporated type ( into the pan ). We had the same issue. We could run it on the trailer and drop oil pressure. After the motor in and out of the boat pulling bearing caps...changing pumps looking for cracks in the block.......we changed the windage tray. Went to a factory Chevy 5 bolt position 4 main 1 at the oil pump. It fixed the issue. The factory wrapped around the oil pump pick up much better than the pan type. The only thing we could think of is as you bring the rpm up the windage became very bad and would push oil away from the pick up. I can only tell you what fixed that problem. Good luck

« on: July 06, 2017, 06:55:18 PM »
If it we're me, I would pull the plugs and covers. Look to see if you have one or more plugs fat. Check all your rockers. Pull the distributor cap see if the rotor is loose. When it back fired it could have bent throttle shafts? Sounds like it ran fine before so it's just check everything. If that's ok do a compression test possibly a leak down too. new motor be safe check it all.

Ohms is the measurement of resistance. You need to see which coil is compatible with your new module. As long as that is what is recommended by the manufacturer then you are good to go.
