Projects / Winter projects?
« on: December 20, 2018, 05:47:18 PM »
I searched around the forum and didnít see a winter projects thread so Iím starting one!

Post what youíre working on over the winter. Doesnít have to be boat related!

Here is one of my main projects below to start this off.

Replacing the flooring and original carpet and having the wood framing/structure replaced in the original seats. Also Going to install new fuel filter & water pressure regulator with driver side dump, all new HPS water hoses and new fuel lines as well as remove and if necessary replace the internal fuel tank pickups (probably original), new throttle cable and cleanup the stereo amp wires. The boat is a 1977 Tahiti Super Tiger and was all original with under 70 hours when I got it two years ago. Should be a busy winter with a lot more work to do. Pics below. And please post up your good projects!

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Water drip from exhaust?
« on: May 03, 2017, 03:17:25 AM »
GT - Sent you a couple PMs and never heard back from you. Hope I didn't burn a bridge this early in my SCJB residency!

I Lougled the relief/dump setup and found that people were suggesting to add a tee between the gate valve and split tee to the logs. Is this to ensure the pump does not over pressurize the block & heads? See attached diagram I found.

This does not illustrate the setup you explained above since your description seems to be dumping after thermohousing and before exhaust... Let me know when you have time (hoping before Avi trip).

What a gem! I as well am an owner of an original example of a 77 Tahiti and I feel like it's my duty to keep it as close to pure as possible.... I would love to see this one out!

This will be my first trip to Avi, I am wondering if people meet up Friday morning and cruise or does everyone really just go out on Saturday? Do you guys cruise down river to Havasu? What is the morning meet up spot and mid day hangout spot? Sandbar or beaches? Should I bring extra fuel cans (boat only holds 24 gallons)? Just wondering how much cruising everyone actually does. Any tips and previous experience will be appreciated!

The No Wake Zone / Re: What did you learn by 1st doing it wrong?
« on: April 26, 2017, 08:15:11 AM »
Used a compression tester on a $3,500 engine I had shipped from Japan for a Honda Prelude I was building up to sale back in my college days (I also had a stroked Camaro so no I was not a ricer). That tester had an adaptor to fit the head thread size and I didn't notice when I unscrewed the hose that the adaptor was left in the cylinder still tight. Engine had tested beautifully with 180 across the board if I can remember correctly. I put all the plugs back in and the adaptor caused the one spark plug to break off into my cylinder as I synched it down not realizing I was tightening (stripping) it into an adaptor. I started the engine and immediately realized there was a misfire/valve issue due to Subaru like exhaust note and rough running. I started to retest compression when I realized the adaptor was not on the hose, my heart sank once I pulled the spark plug up to see that pieces had broke off. I pulled the head and sure enough, cylinder walls were heavily scored, top of piston was pitted, head was pitted and valves were damaged at that cylinder.. Expensive lesson learned and I am not extra cautious when performing compression tests.... Another lesson learned in dunes was going miles out on dirtbike with an old chain and no spare link. I was pretty close to death by the time my friend and I got it back to camp, few years later the same thing happened to me only with a bad clutch.. Almost died of heat exhaustion/fatigue then too.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / 460 ford oil capacity
« on: April 24, 2017, 04:54:40 PM »
@Bogger - to help you out (hopefully not confuse you more) my 460 stick measures way high with 6qts in it. My Hardin manual tells me it's a 6qt capacity engine and I have an old tech bulletin #78-5 that tells me early 1977 models had 5qt dip stick with a 6qt capacity, my boat is a 77. See photos and reference last sentence in last photo of tech bulletin. Engine model is H320 in case the highlight doesn't stand out.
