Just to let you know Brad, my dad has the same boat, it is very capable in shit water, as we have gone outside the Golden Gate with it, BTW - his has a I/O. Good luck and have fun !

OUCH! Those pics look eerily similar to the 460 in the Eliminator, 'cept I didn't hurt the block.
Brad, if you're interested I have a complete, intake to pan, DT9E 460, came out of a 1984 truck
it owes me $100, and you can have it for same (maybe a SCJB shirt  ;D)
just let me know and I'll grab it up from the machine shop before they do a tear down.

I'm using my old D1VE block, it's been prepped and is patiently awaiting the rotating mass.

Let me know


Skip

BTW- Boat looks kick ass man, looked good on the water too.

Ralph seems to think it was on its way out and that was just the icing on the cake. If it wasn't for the 5 warm-up laps waiting for Jim to get his shit together, I could have finished that race.  :P
