are hyper pistons ok in a cruiser setting?

Yes they are just fine when installed with the proper clearances.  Running an engine that came out of a truck may or may not work because a truck engine has different clearance specs than a marine engine.  If I was you I would build the engine the right way once and not be stuck out on the river or lake waiting for a tow back to the launch.  I tried the old junk yard engine and it didnt work out for me.  The top ring on the pistons was not gapped for marine use and popped the lands off of 3 or 4 forged pistons.  Good luck with whatever plan you choose.

If its the exact same thing as yours then he is lying to you or his idea of cruising is at or near wot.  Or another thing is that his speedo in his boat is way off!

At Moabi is LAME!!!  Dont take my word for it though!  Try it out yourself and be as annoyed as I was with the drunk college retards.  I am sticking with the good old Topock Marina as my watering hole!

I was hoping to hear it run yesturday , but my trip to the water got cut short ;D

You can hear it today!!!  Im gonna stop by your place.  We are gonna launch from the rotary sometime today.

Oh and 1000 to 900 is where it likes to idle at.

I must have had some really old starters because in order to get the bendix back in, either the engine would kick it back in or when it was off the starter guy would hit the teeth against a wire wheel and it would pop back in.  My starters didnt have any type of spring that i remember but I think I do remember it being some type of ratcheting type o' thing. Thats just what happened to me anyways.

I think that's a Chebbie 'ting Ryan, Could be wrong, but all my starters have straight cut gears, so do the flexplates. Can't see that being an issue.


Might be a chevy thing for the reverse flexplate dealio but I could never get the top mount to work right on my BBF.  The bendix would hang on the brand new flexplate 3 out of 5 times.  I tried to different starters and both did the same thing and thats why I ditched it.  My starter guy said that in order for it to actually work well you have to get one of those hi-torque type so that the bendix goes back in when you let off the start button instead of relying on the motor to kick it back like the old school starters.

I had the same weak starter problem to so I ended up ditching the top mount that I could never get to work right and have been using the same autozone stocker special for 2 years without a single flaw.  I have had the starter underwater before and still fired the engine up so I wouldnt worry about that.

very cool..

how does she idle?

She sounds just like all those 100k boats now!  Just wish she looked like one!  Idle is a little tough to adjust because when I set it up cold then it idles to high when warm and when I set it up warm then it wants to die when cold so I am gonna try for a happy medium with it today.  So far the lowest I could get the idle down to is about 900.

I just replaced the flywheel with a normal flywheel so I hope its a normal starter. Thanks for ur help. Mike

I remember GT saying something about needing a reverse direction flexplate or something like that for the topmounts.  Good Luck!

I think he was talking about it in 2sav's starter for sale thread.

I am finally ready for the river!! ;D    Leaving tonight!!!

On my boat I have 1/2 for the water and 3/8 for the fuel.  Im not sure if 3/8 for the fuel would feed two holley's sufficiently though.

Use plenty of water!!

Here is what I did.

After the sanding I used Meguiers Cutting Compound followed up by the Meguiers 3 step dealio that comes in the red bottles.  The stuff works great and its still what I use.

1. 1000 grit wet
2. 2000 grit wet
3. Cutting compound
4. Scratch and swirl remover
5. Buffing compound
6. Cleaner
7. Wax

I might have mixed up steps 5 and 6 but thats the way I did it and it still looks as good as it did a year ago (except for the scratches from last season).

Dude  listen to B-rad.

Dont lose money on this deal just send it back, call em up and if you have to ship it they will email you a packing slip.

Don't ask me how i know this............

So how is it that you know this??

 Just kidding!!!

I agree because and here is why.  If noone wore seatbelts then the accidents could potentially be worse, as stated before and our vehicle insurance (which I think is a complete scam!!!) would be through the roof because of more bodily damage in an accident.

Thats the way I look at it.  And if you dont wear a helmet on a bike you are a complete moron and should not be allowed to breed and make more morons.

Thanks for your time..
