Title: Eliminator/Daytona project
Post by: propless on July 24, 2007, 02:15:00 AM
Hello all
Due to problems with my old boathttp://www.socaljetboats.com/index.php/topic,800.msg13984.html#msg13984 (http://www.socaljetboats.com/index.php/topic,800.msg13984.html#msg13984) I bought the Eliminator 21 in the project boat classifiedshttp://www.socaljetboats.com/index.php/topic,1212.0.html (http://www.socaljetboats.com/index.php/topic,1212.0.html)with the idea of useing my old boats 460 and a berkeley jc pump that I have sitting in my garage.
Does anybody know if the hulls where the same for the jet and the outbourd ? This hull has realy small stringers, about 1 inch wide by 1.5 inch high :o and it has about a 6 inch fin mounted to the right side (sponson ?), with none on the left side  ??? .
Do you guys think this is a good idea or should I try to get that big ugly black thing hanging off the back of my pretty new boat to run  :( ?
By the way, my user name still fits , the outboard has no prop ;D

I would think the guy you bought it from would knoe best about your question... what did he say? Did you tell him your plans with it?

the stringers on my daytona jet are bigger than what you have, mine are about 1 1/2 wide by probably 5-6 high, i would thing that at the least you would need to replace yours with the bigger ones, but that is just my .02, there are guys on here with much knowledge than me--wait for them
.
ps---nice score on the boat, i wanted it, but the wife threatened to castrate me if i bought another project before forked up is done and in the water ;D

Eliminator never made a 21' daytona jet....only a 22' and a 19' ....that hull was never intended to be universal.

I am not saying it cant be done, but you might run into problems ...similar to the ones you are already seeing.

Youre going to have to put in new stringers (taller and wider apart)...cut a hole for an intake and ....wait....does it have a center 3rd sponsoon like this one...

(http://hotboat.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=17921)

if it doesnt, you might as well keep it as an outboat because thats going to be one HUGE project.....if the bottom is flat in the rear between the 2 sponsoons, the pump will not be low enough to catch water.

based on this picture, it looks like you may be in luck...

(http://forums.screamandfly.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=131519&d=1185038957)


anyways...sorry for thinking out loud.....

its still a big project....new stringers, hole for intake, hole for pump....this isnt an easy task, it would take someone with experience and knows the daytona hulls inside and out.

good luck and congrats on the buy!

and welcome to the site!

I think you should sell it! I'll buy it! That boat with a rebuilt 300 would haul so much ass! It'd be a rocket! Ask goad about the 22' warlock with a 250 that weights twice that how fast it was....Call Eric Simon he'll hook ya up ;) You can thank me later and welcome to the site and "props" on the score... ;D

i cant believe im saying this either, but i'd keep the strap on power....its the easy way out too.

the hull was made to be an outboard....no telling how it will behave with a jet in it.

that was a good buy. glad to see that someone here bought it. Now we just need pictures of the project. there are 21' jet. I think eliminator had two different hull that were 21'  libator splashed it and they make jet, o/i and outboard hulls with that mold. buddy has a 21 jet. just my .02

Stay off Plesh's meds, they seem to slow you down.  ;)   :D

By the time you're done putting new stringers, jet pump, ligning everything up, getting the parts, uhggg... keep the outboard it'll be faster that way, have more interior room, and use less gas.

does it have a center 3rd sponsoon like this one...

(http://hotboat.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=17921)
Yes, it looks just like that, but maybe different dimentions. I'm going to take the Berkeley transom plate out to the boat later and see if it looks the same. :-\ I think the center sponsoon may be to narrow, the berkeley plate is 14.5 in wide and when I measered the hull yesterday I think it was only 12.5 in  >:( , but I realy cant remember and the boat is at my parents house, I need to do something with my old boat before bringing another project home  ;)

 And yea I know the outboard will be faster, have more room, and use less fuel, but thay are BUT UGLY and sound downright UNAMERICAN !!  I WANT MY BIG BLOCK !! There's nothing better than pulling out the baffeles and wakeing up the whole lake at 7am  ;D ;D ;D

 Well it's Home now !!!!  And after a 3 month battle with D.M.V. I finally got my title !!  I showed them who's the BOSS  ::) !  I started cleaning it up to see what is realy under all those years of grime and dirt  >:( .

After some wet sanding and polishing the colors are starting to show again  ;D  I just did the right side (in the pics) to show the difference .

[attachimg=1]

[attachimg=2]

here is one showing how small the stringers are in this hull (compaired to the pack of cigs) , and the pretty balsa floors .

[attachimg=3]

[attachimg=4]

a shot under the deck, still pretty scarry under there. But look how thin the supports are , the ones that go across the boat are 1/4in plywood  :o

[attachimg=5]

Thats all for now.  It will take lots of time and money but someday it will be a realy nice boat again !!!!

Umm , No ! This thing is nasty !!!! That dirt on the left side of the hull is not dirt and it does not wash off !  I had to wet sand the right side and polish it to get it off  >:( . Looks like years and years of no love  :'( .

Also, I think your hull is a much better  / stronger starting point than mine and It looks pretty good to me.  And you got seats !  I dont have any of those  :( , one more thing on my list .  ;D

 Oops, Kinda forgot about this thread (been busy with the little boat).  Here's a couple shots of it all cleaned up and running  :o :o .  I still cant believe the motor runs,  but I hooked up the batt today and it fired right up again.  I haven't done anything more to it, just wanted to update the thread.  I really need to finish that little Eliminator so I can get to work on this one.  I sat in it today (making vroom vroom noises) and I really think this is going to be a cool boat again someday.

Looking for a round ear or a cleaver? I'll have to check what I have left but may have you covered either way, can that 300 turn a 28? Wow, have you thought of gearing up? The most efficient prop pitch is around 24"pitch (by efficient, I mean best bite, or less slip.) I have like fourty props, most of which were Demo's, I will be taking inventory soon (day or two).
Title: Re: Eliminator/Daytona project
Post by: propless on July 20, 2008, 06:21:57 PM
 GT, let me know what you find  ;D .    I really don't know anything about OBs or props (see user name  ;) ) , but I was told this thing is the 455 olds of OBs, nothing over 5500 rpm or it will start throwing parts (rods) at me  :o .   It had no prop when I got it and hasn't been on the water in a loooong time (at least two owners).  I did find out it should have 300 hp at 5300 rpm and is torque monster.  The gearing looks to be between 1.6 and 1.7 to one.   I just figured a 28 or more would be a good safe starting point to see what it does without over revving it  ???

 Here's a shot of the motor, its an early 80s Black Max 300, 3.4 L ,  Its a HUGE old beast !!!  It has 15 splines on the shaft and that's all I know except that it smells funny when it runs (cough, cough) and I have to premix the oil   ::) ;D  I guess it will also need a thrust washer (?) and whatever else I need to mount the prop (there's nothing on the prop shaft) ????

Post by: GT Jets on July 20, 2008, 06:45:53 PM
Use good two stroke lube, (I really like Amsoil high perf. premix or their injector oil mixed at about 60:1) these motors have a tendency to "Ring Jack"(when carbon builds up behind the rings and galds the cylinder walls).

 If it were mine, with that jackplate and bracing, I would run about a 25" pitch cleaver, or a chopper, it will come out of the hole like an oversized poop, but once on plane should scare the holly hell out of you, overpropping an lugging the motor is as bad as overreving due to the heat build up in the cylinders. I will see what I have left and we'll do some "experimenting", I'm hoping you have the 1.62:1 lower, it would make it rare but faster than hell, when you pull the lower to replace the water pump count the rotations it takes to get the propshaft to go around once (two turns = 2.0:1)

Does it have solid motor mounts? very very important...

Something very few people know/understand, the more oil you run in the premix the "leaner" the engine runs, so "less is more"

 Thanks for the advice GT.  It takes somewhere between 1.6 and 1.7 turns of the flywheel to get one rotation of the propshaft, (not sure exactly, its been awhile) might be 1.62  :-\ .  It does shift into gear  (forward and reverse) and appears to have some sort of drive ratchet ?

 Motor mounts ???  It has motor mounts ???  Where would they be ???  You can tell I'm a real expert on OBs, cant you  ;D . 

 Also the propshaft is about about 3" or 4" below keel (the lowest setting on the brackets), and the lower unit has no low water pickup (cant find one for this old beast).

 Is it hard to change the waterpump ?

 A little history on this thing.  When I got the boat the owner didn't know if it ran or not (never tried to play with it), so I assumed it was junk.  I bought it just for the hull (I always wanted one).  I did a compression check and it had the same compression on all 6 cylinders  :o (+/- 10 psi).  I shot some 2 stroke oil in the cylinders and it started to even out more (haven't checked again it now that it runs).  When I finally figured out the wiring  :banghead: :banghead: and tried to start it, it ran on three cylinders  :( .  I started checking things and found no spark on 3 cyl.  After a lot of this  :banghead: :banghead: it turned out to be a bad switch box .  I got a deal on a set of used switch boxes (changed both) and it started right up ( in a HUGE cloud of smoke !!! ), it ran rough but cleared out after awhile. It does not use the fuel pumps on the motor (it has a holly blue pump and regulator, 5 psi),  and someone in the past did some modifying on the cover over the carbs.

 You now know everything I know about OBs

I have a free box of crap for you (not literally), Its a complete ignition/charging system from a Mariner 2.5 and should be the same as yours. BTW we used to call the Black Max's B/M's ::)

The motor mounts (there are 4) are in the clamshell looking pieces on the side of the exhaust housing and two more bolted to the tiller assembly, its very easy to verify, just wiggle the motor by hand back and forth, should be pretty solid, if it wiggles easily and feels like "suspension", you need to upgrade to solid mounts, these are really inexpensive.

The nose cone and LWPU you need is actually for a gen.2 Alpha series drive, with some minor modification works tits.

Like I was saying the gear ratio should be a 1.7:1, but a 1.62:1 would be friggen awsome, keep your eyes open for one, if you can pick it up cheap do it, it would mean another 6-7 MPH.

The water pump change is necissary but pretty straightforward, should be done every other year or more (cheap insurance).

BTW these things normally use about 3psi fuel pressure at the most.

A cleaver type prop is a "transom lifting" prop and will make that tunnel really work, but a "chopper style" would make it much more driveable (makes "slop" count the same as "skill"  ;))

Looking forward to seeing this thing run, always wanted a Big block powered stern drive Daytona, Maybe in my "next life"

  I love free crap  ;D ;D

 Motor mounts,  I cant feel any wiggles from the motor.  If i push really hard on the top of the motor the whole boat / trailer moves first.  I think these are the lower ones  ???, right , there are plastic covers over them.  They look to be solid inside ( I poked around in there a little and everything felt like metal, cant really see the upper ones
[attachthumb=1]

The nose cone and LWPU you need is actually for a gen.2 Alpha series drive, with some minor modification works tits.
Is this something you can do ?  I was told the lower unit on these motors was there downfall (if you break it throw the motor away, no parts available, and nothing will interchange).

BTW these things normally use about 3psi fuel pressure at the most.

 That might explain a few things  ::) (slightly rough/erratic idle), pushing fuel past the needle and seat ?

A cleaver type prop is a "transom lifting" prop and will make that tunnel really work, but a "chopper style" would make it much more driveable (makes "slop" count the same as "skill"  ;))
"Slop" count as "skill" !! That's for me !!!  But I was thinking something basic just to get an idea what the boat/motor wants.  And for me to learn how to drive this thing  ::) ( first OB and first tunnel ).  I was told something like a 28 pitch bravo would be a good all around starter prop for this thing, but I have no idea if thats right or not ??  I just know that this motor is not suposed to be able to spin high rpm like the new ones.

 BTW , Thanks for all the advice on this thing its really hard to find any info on this old timer (worse than a V8 Evinrude)

Sounds like this thing was set up pretty well, I need to go through about ten years worth of crap, but I think I have a Mercury marine write up on that motor, they came up with it to try and chase down the 300 GT Johnson, but the Johnson is a freak of nature that just simply hauls the mail without asking questions.

The thing that makes that lower special is the vertical driveshaft, its a liitle queer. The aftermarket makes a ton of shit for that thing, but its pricey as hell.

I'll post up some stuff tomorrow.

Right now I'm going to go check my eyelids for leaks.

Well I had to drag this thread back up.  I decided to slap this thing together and get it wet.  Wanted to see if I would like a boat this big. 

 I will admit, I hate the OB !!! It sounds gay, smells terrible, and is a pig out of the hole. But it did run good and has lots of power once its on plane. 

 But I love this hull !!!!!  It rides sooooooooo nice.  And feels realy light on the water.  I did manage to scare myself with it though  ;D.  I made a few passes in front of the marina at around 3k rpm, trying to figure out the trim system.  Then once I was an expert at it  ::), I stood on the throttle and started trimming it up.  Every time I went up on the trim switch it went faster and gained more rpm, nice.  So now the hull has lifted and is moveing along pretty good.  I have no idea how fast it was going (didnt bring the GPS) but it felt fast.  So my dumb azz decides to trim it up more, BAD IDEA !!!  The bow cought a bunch of air and came way up, and it started dancing around from sponson to sponson.  Felt just like those little OB race boats on TV look just before they blow over.  Good thing I was already an expert and able to save it  ::).

 Bottom line is, I like the boat and it is going to get a real motor now.  As soon as the little blue boat is gone, the surgury can begin.  >:D

remind me, how much money do you have into this thing?

if memory serves me correctly, i think you stole the boat and motor for damn near nothing and got the motor running with little to no parts.

very cool.

and yes, get rid of the dildo.  ;D

 Your right Brad, I think the total on this one (so far) is right about $ ????.  I'm not saying, but its way cheap for what it is.  ;D

Hey Propped,  ;D

You need to try a cleaver propeller and lift the ass of the boat some more, you're leaving the poker game with all your chips on the table....

That thing has the potential to fill your linens for sure  :thumbup:

If you can get some transom lift with a cleaver, it will "tip toe" a lttle more and make it more comfortable and stable.

Gotta go to the old mans garage and see what pitch is sitting in there...What pitch you ruuning now and at what RPM?

Might as well make it fun for a while  ;D

 Oh no I dont !! The OB has served its purpose by confirming to me why I dont like it (ugly, smelly, sounds gay, etc, etc). 

 It has a 14.5"  28 pitch 4 blade on it and I realy dont know what rpm it topped out at, I was a little busy holding on for dear life at that point.  When the bow cought to much air and started to climb like that, I looked just like this  :o.

 It took a while to get that thing off there (it was huge), and he didnt like my idea of chopping it off with the sawzall and letting it fall.  So, I didnt have much time to get the boat torn down.  I did get the carpet out and cleaned up some of the glue, the balsa still looks good.  ;D

No.
Standard Berkeley, with rideplate/shoe.
Waiting to get a final price on that, but probobly Greg Shoemakers guy.
Thats not my decision, its up to the Daytona guru.
And no, theres no question limit (that I know of).  ;D

nice should be a fun build. hope you go with a rounded keel

 It already has a rounded keel.  Its a 21', I think the flat keel deal was mainly a 19' issue.

 Kreg, who is that ?  Is it one of the older style hulls (like ours) or one of the newer ones ?  I think the newer ones have strakes on the sponsons to help lift them.  I asked over there once if it was worth doing to the older hull, but nobody answered.

Post by: SLCKREG on December 22, 2009, 09:45:51 AM
Hey Proppy...he goes by supersoaker. I wanna say his hull is made my millenium(sp) but don't quote me on that. His hull resembles the new style from the top. I couldn't tell you anything about the bottom. I'm sure you could pm him...or bounce the 21 thread and ask.  Edit; Shoe would probably be the better one to ask if it was a worth while mod. I heard a while back that the older hulls were the faster of the 2....but maybe they were talking about the 19's....I can't remember. Personally, I don't think I'd mess with it.

Hmmm, interesting.  It makes sence though.  In the pics Ive seen of peoples projects (newer style hulls), those things are built like tanks compaired to mine.  And lighter is faster.  ;D

I got all the OB brackets off the other day and did a little more carpet glue removal.  I was going to work on it all day today, but now there are other plans.  :banghead:

 Looks like I'm done for a while now though, might be summer before I get back on it.

 Little Leo decided to give me a Christmas present yesterday (while I was at work). He tried to wash/clean the carpets for me.  His only bad idea was to use the water from my water bed to do it.  :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:   He bit a few holes in the bed and by the time I got home from work about half the house was flooded. And he was sleeping on the couch (on his back with his legs in the air, snoring) :mad: :mad: :mad:  Half the house now has no carpet and all the furniture is in the living room / dinning room / garage / etc.

Thats for dog bites. No matter what dog you have they will cover the water damage to the house ie carpet, drywall, paint, etc.

And you dont have to say the dog pop'd the bed. Came home and the house was flooded...What dog, never mention the dog.

Then, if you're gonna keep Cujo and a waterbed, I'd just stain the concrete slab (I've seen some really nice jobs of that done) or tile it and seal it well,  :D

 Sorry to hear about the bite Skip.  Its crazy how powerful a Boxer can be, people just dont think of them that way.  There still one of my favorite dogs though.  Hope there was no serious injuries (other then yours).

 I got most of the house back to semi normal (still no carpet).  I had the heaters and fans going all night and most of the day.  Everything is dry and looks OK, cant notice any damage to the drywall. Looks like almost all the water was in the carpet pad.  Think I'm going to paint while the carpets out (it needs it).  And the carpet really needed to be changed anyway, never changed it when I bought the place (its really old and faded).  Just wasnt planning on doing it now.

 Good thing is, it isn't going to cost me much.  My Mom and I have been talking for awhile about doing a house swap.  So, this is the perfect excuse to do it.  She is going to handle the carpet (what she wants), and I'll handle the paint for her. 

 Bad thing is, her place is going to cost me a small fortune. Its on 2 1/2 acres but it has a one car garage and a carport (that wont work for me).  I'm going to need to enclose the carport, making it a 2 car garage.  And put up some decent fencing for the dog.  Then I'll have room to build a shop/storage area for the boat.  So, it looks like its going to be a loooooong time before there's any time/money to build the boat.

 Need to call the machine shop in the morning and put the motor on hold, no need to have it done and sitting around with no boat to put it in.

 BTW, anyone that knows me wouldnt believe the fat chick excuse.  Fat chicks might need love too, but not from me.  :screwy:

On the upside, you get to move where no one will f**k with you for having projects, and Leo will have room to roam. The bite is nothing too serious, about 1/2 dozen puncture wounds and one good rip, 3 freakin' staples in that one. To top it all off, it got one of my tattoos, that's ok, I'll just get more  >:D

 I think there's a bit more to it then just a cam change.  Its a motor from a different boat, a yellow boat that ran 104mph (see post #51), with a cam - intake- oil pan change.  But your 100% right, those are some damn impressive numbers with only 700hp in a 21' boat.  I bet he finds a couple more mph to get it over 100 without a bottle.

Skip those staples look nasty !!  I just cant stand the sight of staples.  Not that my road rash in the other thread looked any better.  ;)

the strange knobs on the transom are for a ski bar ;D
Thats a scary thought.  They where just bolted through the glass (no wood support behind them).  I actually thought they where there to hook the cover to, somehow.

 The house seems to be OK tonight again, no signs or smells of moisture.  I think I got lucky by getting it cleaned up and dried out that night.

Now that this beautiful boat is in the shop the more I fall in love with it.  The colors are so cool.  Currently swapping out the stringers and toe board bulkhead.  Probably fab up some gunnel supports too while I'm at it.  I dont want to mess up the light weight of it but I do want to make this the boat that Jan and I always dreamed about.

Thanks again Proppy!

After wasting a ton of time treating this boat like a car and preparing it that way, I learned that with Gelcoat, you dont do any of that.  Soooo, all the time spent smoothing, sealing and priming the transom, I ground that all back off  :banghead:

I then attempted to forget what little I ever knew about spraying and shot some Gel.   Wow, I made my fair share of mistakes and was really unhappy with the appearance the next day but after blocking that down with some 400 grit, it looks fantastic.   Gelcoat is very cool stuff....just WAY different that spraying base coat/clear coat.

Got a sweet seat setup from a friend that has a 21 as he was going for light weight buckets.

Next up was to set the motor one last time to make sure we have the motor at the right height before breaking it down for powder coating.

Thanks very much.  It's been a fun project and the first stringer replace job my son and I have ever attempted.   Lots of fun while frustrating at time.

Here's one more shot we took last night.  The lighting was awful but we wanted to see what the back was going to look like.   This is pretty much what we had visioned but it's always nice to see it in real life

For guys looking at this thread...

First off John, very impressive, this thing is going to be off the hook.

Some safety criticism.  Please don't take any offense, that is not the intent.

The throttle pedal should be mounted at a 75/25 ratio to the fulcrum point. If you have a throttle issue, cable stuck, broken return spring, bent linkage, whatever, you don't have a way to pull the throttle back, with a 75/25, with 25% of the throttle pedal being below the hinge point, you can "heel" the throttle back. In this case, i would recommend some sort of toe clip, this way you would be able to pull the pedal back with your toe...

Don't want to see any of you guys put in harms way because of a small oversight.

Cant wait to see this badboy on the water.

Would have had to of done it yesterday John, the weather sucks butt down here today. Supposed to get some snow in the Sierra mountains tomorrow. Old man winter has a few more tricks up his sleeves. We need a tad more water anyways.

Take care and keep up the good work. Oh, and punch that kid of yours in the arm for me.

After setting our sights on being at the big hotboat show in Bremerton on Saturday, we thrashed non stop from Wednesday night and finished it Saturday morning at 9 am.   We were in the water by 10 am and other than a leaking rubrail (that in the thrash we forgot to seal as we were installing it) it performed flawlessly.   

Sure is nice to be coming to an end on this project....................   till the next change

The old girl still impresses me on how well it runs and rides.   Fun little run for the first time this year and the start of summer in the NW.

Well, we played with it a bit this last year and had some great times till I kicked a headgasket.  My bad.  Got a little greedy with boost and timing.    Soooo, it's tore down and is going to be a bit different this next year.      8)
