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!

Yup, these are very fun but if you get some real speed going they become lethal!

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.

@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.

Yup, I have fins and rudder and they don't do anything while at low idle, pump and steering is tight but no matter what it seems to need constant steering input at low idle to maintain forward linear direction. Like everyone else said, more throttle/increase idle.

GT - Can you PM me a picture / diagram of that setup. I like the off idle idea. Just want to be clear on hose routing.

- Yes I stated this was a wet setup, he said to add what I had in disks and run it again, look at plug color/disks and add more from there if necessary. The tech basically wanted to reiterate that it was better to start rich then to jump straight to a full lean setup. This is a 4.8" disk so I'm assuming that's 5"???

When you say Bassett valve setup are you referring to a separate water line/gate valve to exhaust independent of engine water intake? Or are you talking changing the actual valves at the heads?

Roadrunner - Thank you for the confirmation, I did use a mirror to better inspect and found the small pin size hole. There is also a larger hole behind it closer to manifold but I don't believe water was dripping from that one. I will run lines into bilge to redirect.

GT - The Cam Grind # is 293H

The actual disks were 11 each side. I had spares that came with boat so I disassembled the traps and cleaned up/added 4 more disks to each end (15 each for now).

I called Supertrapp and spoke to a tech who advised against the 20-30 disks but agreed I needed more since my disks were dark/black indicating a rich running engine. He also stated that springs were "30 year old way" and they do not have springs on any of their systems now and do not sale the parts. Their reasoning was that the disks will not crush unless super heated and under extreme load and that the springs made for a less reliable system that would cause rotation and misalignment of disks on my system since it is a center bolt type setup. I will run the boat again and read color of plugs & disks to fine tune (looking for golden brown).

Wide open throttle temp was under 150 probably between 125 - 150. If you look at attached photo of my temp gauge you will see it's hard to read below 150, when I was at WOT a few times last week the gauge would drop to about the 125 mark. Cruising was 150-160. I am going to tap in a mechanical water gauge at my thermostat housing.

Where do I intersect the the water lines to install a dump line setup per your suggestion above???! Should I tee off of each lines from the thermostat housing before they lines dump to the exhaust?

Thank you GT I may PM you later when I get back to boat to confirm disk number and elaborate more on setup.

Flusher - calling the guy I bought the boat off of today to see if he change breaking oil from first fire, engine only has 12 hours on it now. I was told to run it closer to 17-20 hours before changing. I really hope he flushed it after fire up and initial seat. That would be a bad move!

Still has break in oil, no moisture at all.
