Well my lack of knowledge is apparent... here are pictures of the carb, perhaps this will help? If not, what am I looking for? Thanks for all the replies thus far, where I lack in knowledge I make up for it with beer on the water this summer.

Any suggestions / baselines are appreciated.

Updated to add a set of BBC valve covers. Just looking for a cheap set to temporarily cover my heads while my regular covers are being polished. Boat will not be ran with these on.

Don't have anything to sell you

But just an FYI

Go to G&J in Ontario. They can make you the lines and get you some bulkhead fittings for a hell of a lot cheaper than pd

Mine were 16 each and I already had the  -4 bulk head fittings

Thanks for the info, liking those lines. PM sent for more info.

Mods, please delete. Thanks.   :beer: :beer:

Young gun powder in rancho Cucamonga does a nice job with ceramic coating. Don't know where you are though...

Thanks for the lead, I will give them a call. Updated my profile, I'm in OC but don't mind dropping them somewhere. Just looking to get it done right at a reasonable price.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / New boat - Carb and header questions
« on: March 14, 2017, 10:58:16 AM »
Just picked up this original owner Silverado with a stock BBC. The boat has been sitting for a few years so it needs some attention.

Looking for some help identifying the carb on as I would like to buy a rebuild kit and pick up a traditional Bassett style air scoop.

I am also interested in ceramic coating or re-chroming the headers but not sure what my options are there. They have been painted black every year by the previous owner and presumably sanded down each time so I'm not sure what they would even look like if I tried to go this route. Thoughts?

I am also in search of a complete hydraulic place diverter if anyone has a lead.

My dad's best quote.

"Don't buy it unless you can steal it"

Small ball peen hammer to test stringer integrity. Should sounds like you're hitting concrete, not a tissue box.

Compression test on the engine, pull the dipstick, look for moisture and/or rust.

What pump?
Look at the electrical under the dash (shocking how often this gets missed).

Look under the hull at the keel in the bow area (common for beaching damage to occur)

Crawl under it and look into the pump.

Take it for a test drive, even if it costs you a tank of gas and a 12 pack of beer.

Best advice I can give you, look at EVERYTHING. If you really want a Chevy, buy a boat with a Chevy, don't settle because it's cheap.


Great points, thanks! I should have mentioned it has a Berkeley jet. Is there anything specific I can look for? Bearings, play, etc.?

If the weather permits on Saturday I am going to try and get it out on the water at Lake Perris prior to buying it.

I have a Chevy powered boat lined up that is a family friend's that I will ultimately buy if the wife enjoys this cheaper introduction..... who am I kidding I will buy it either way, I can always sleep on the couch. Besides two boats are better than one.

New to the forum but have been lurking around for a few years. Finally deciding to pull the trigger on a jet boat since I sold my Ski Nautique. I have a 1970's Rogers lined up to take a look at this weekend. Its got a 455 olds in it (not my preference, bow tie would be better) and looks to be in fair shape with the upholstery recently redone. The price is right and won't sting too bad if I don't use it as much as I would like.

I'm looking for any suggestions on things to look out for that are unique to jet boats (olds motors, pump, hull, etc.). I've owned ski boats, jet skis, and motorcycles so I am familiar with the general things to look for but wanted to see if there is anything specific I should be on the look out for. Any input is greatly appreciated and will be repaid in beer on the water this summer.  :beer:
