Boat Showcase / Re: Joe's '91 20.5' Hallett Build

This is absolutely amazing!  Please keep up the good work.  I hope you keep up with the pictures so I can keep drooling.  You are a genius with the machine work.  She want's to be wet again!

I don't know why you can't see the pictures, however, I freed up all the valves.   None appear bent.  The lifters are hydraulic.  There is rust for sure from the exhaust being open to the atmosphere.  I am going to hone the guides and massage the valves to make them work.  Now, the main problem is ignition timing after I set up the valves 

I have a BBC 468.  I don't think it has been run for over two years.  The heads and valvetrain were new about three years ago.  I went to spin the engine over by hand, and I noticed some of the exhaust rockers were loose and not even touching the valves.  The valves I believe are either bent or seized/stuck.  The dual springs aren't even able to bring the valve back to the closed position.  You can see in the pictures, the valves that are working fine and closed, are about 1 7/8" high.  The bad valves (without the rocker touching them) are only 1 1/4" high just for reference on how they aren't closing.  There are five valves like this...and they are all exhaust valves.  The boat is new to me and I have yet to run it as I needed to check it over and fix a few other things.  I was thinking I was on the home stretch and might be able to have it on the water soon, but now I feel I have the biggest setback of them all.  Do you guys have any recommendations on what to do here?  I am somewhat at a loss, except for the option of taking the scoop, carbs, blower, manifold, exhaust, and heads off and dealing with it that way.   I'd really appreciate any help or advice on what to do.  Thank you

I was told soapy water.  I am about to do this, so it would be nice if a few chimed in.  I am planning on using 3m weatherstrip glue in between the transom housing and the gasket, then silicone in between the gasket and hull since my hull isn't in perfect condition and needs a few low spot areas taken care of/filled in, then o ring on the bowl, (bowl gasket dry), then adhesive sealer on the surround of the transom to hull, and the transom housing to bowl area.  Before, there was a S*&% ton of silicone in place of the o ring and the transom housing was only silicone and it was a mother to remove
