Spending twice as much on machine work from a machinist that gets it will save you 10 times as much later.  If you can't afford Bostick or equivalent, buy a used motor to hold you over until you can.   If you decide to go with someone else, get in touch with me or ?? And I'll explain what you need to watch out for, spec, and check for when the job is done.   Most automotive machine shops do shit for work....but they make it shiney and pretty so you don't ask questions

👍 Have been watching the build on your Instagram, can't wait to see it in the water. And hopefully soon will be calling you about some headers for my cp. All your work is top notch!

Been driving squirt guns all my life just never owned one, but still getting used to it. I was going to put the button on it but I don't want to be building motors for it all the time. And I figure it's fast and reliable.

I will say that a pop off is a better safety device than a jet a way. But for you i would go with a jet a way hands down. you dont want to go threw all the mods to get your pop off in.
X2 definitely one of next buys for the winger. Maybe after my $4000 dollar heads lol

Jet Pumps / Re: Rebuild
« on: November 07, 2014, 01:58:26 PM »
You can detail your aluminum impeller and make it badass if the wear surface isn't too undersized.

A stainless wear ring will give you the most options for clearance and greatest longevity.

Forgot to mention that you will need an acetylene torch to get the wear ring out.  You will also need at least an 8" caliper to measure the wear surface of the impeller.

Cut the impeller after to arrive at your target RPM.  If you have a heavy boat, cutting the impeller will hurt your launch.  Better to stick with an A cut.

« on: November 07, 2014, 09:01:58 AM »
So someone contacted me last night because they were concerned there wasnt going to be many people at this event due to not much talk about it on this thread. Sadly, most of the chatter and RSVP's has been on facebook, not on the site.

Based on what I can see on FB, IG, this site, and people I have talked to, I am going to guess theres going to be about 40-50 people there. The room holds about 50 people lol, so its going to be a good time.

The DVD's are arriving today and I hope to have the trailer done by the end of this weekend so you guys can see a teaser of what this year has been like through the eyes of a camera lens. I am sure once the trailer hits the internet, its going to go viral and pull even more people to this event.

Cant wait to see you all next weekend.  :thumbup:

I am looking for some advise on where to take my 454 bbc and heads to have them fluxed and machined. I live in San Jacinto and I was wondering if there was anywhere local.

If your willing to travel, Bosticks in El Cajon or Wayne's in Riverside

You may want to invest in a life line jacket.  Without a lot more info on your set up it would be had to say what's safe.  But if your  truly hitting those numbers I would think your close.

Jet Pumps / Re: removing epoxy from intake
« on: October 23, 2014, 07:39:36 AM »
Use a torch to heat the aluminum and break the bond of the epoxy.  Run the torch around the bottom (outside) of the intake focusing the heat toward where the epoxy is on the inside.  Keep the torch moving and don't stay in one spot too long and be careful not to overheat the aluminum.  Acetylene works best, map gas will work, and propane will take forever.

Once the epoxy starts to smoke, drive two large screw drivers between the fiberglass and intake at the front and pry apart.  It is easier if the intake is clamped to a heavy work bench on the suction surface.

I use a 4" grinder with a 36-grit disk or flapper wheel to sand the remaining epoxy off of the intake.  Once the intake is pulled, it takes about 10-15 minutes to clean it up real nice with the grinder.  It's going to make a huge mess, so I would recommend grinding it outside.

Good luck,

Joe

They make a huge mess, sooting all over the back of your boat.  They will also kill power with lost scavenging in a NA deal.

Yes, no oil mods to the lower end... ie: main restrictors, no #5 main cap oil entry enlargement, clearances not blueprinted... So on and so forth. Like I told you before, quit "bench racing" and do it right the first time around.
Only one right way to build an Olds, and corner cutting isn't it!

I personally would go to a rail kit if you're looking for big HP. Just for sake of not stressing the pump or the hull at the intake
