Title: What did you do to your boat today?
Post by: BowtieGuy454 on September 22, 2012, 11:00:22 AM
Just wanted to start this tread to see what everyone is working on. I tightened all my motor mounts, installed new flappers, and found oil all over my fuel pump. Time for a new pump I guess.

Ran mine too damn hard at Elsinore getting in shape for the Oct 20th 21' jet boat championship. Left a brick on the pedal and played a bunch of eighties rock music, now it goes tic, tic, tic, tic at idle and clicks faster with rpm.

Please share the details on your put setup.  If you had to do it again, would you go the same route?

I am trying the Harbor Freight Oil Extractor:  http://www.harborfreight.com/6-1-4-quarter-gallon-oil-extractor-46149.html (http://www.harborfreight.com/6-1-4-quarter-gallon-oil-extractor-46149.html) but, as with most HF products, I am not entirely stoked with the results.  Killed my POS Kobalt air compressor, now upgraded to a 10HP, 3-phase, 180 gallon Kellog-American...  Just waiting to get my electric rolled over to 3-phase.  If I can’t hold out any longer, I will swap out my Baldor 10HP single phase motor, but it uses twice the amps.

It would be nice to have something that doesn’t require shop air to run.

Thanks,

Joe

What is that and how does it work?

It's a 12 volt pump that is wired to a switch and has a barbed fitting where the drain plug goes and a hose to the pump then a hose with a threaded barbed fitting with a cap so you push the caped hose out your drain in the transom in to a bucket and turn the pump on then I run a quart or two more after its empty to get the old out

Well I'm one step closer to getting motor out and putting new Dooley 10qt Pan on... In order to make sure my dipstick would read correctly I set the pan up in the garage at a slight angle, close to how it will be sitting in boat, and filled it with 9qts of water. Luckily it landed right at the "add 1qt" mark. Added the 10th and it reads perfectly👍 what a relief! Also, I got the temp sensor installed along with a Fumoto Drain Valve. After that was done I started priming parts to the water/fuel seperator set up and will paint tomorrow.

I'm starting to go a little crazy because as I wait for chance to pull motor I start another little project one after another...😖  Not the best thing for my slightly OCD personality!!

Well I'm one step closer to getting motor out and putting new Dooley 10qt Pan on... In order to make sure my dipstick would read correctly I set the pan up in the garage at a slight angle, close to how it will be sitting in boat, and filled it with 9qts of water. Luckily it landed right at the "add 1qt" mark. Added the 10th and it reads perfectly👍 what a relief! Also, I got the temp sensor installed along with a Fumoto Drain Valve. After that was done I started priming parts to the water/fuel seperator set up and will paint tomorrow.

True it doesn't peel that easy if you aren't rubbing on it constantly with your foot. I'd throw some regular clear on it. Doesn't have to be their clear. It'll also give you more of satin look rather then the primered look.

I bought this LSM valve spring compressor to pull apart my cylinder heads.  Works great!  Very smooth, stable, and controllable; It is easy to work with and much more rigid than I had expected, even with heavier Vasco roller springs.  I only bought the stud-mount base adaptor, but adaptors are available for just about every engine/rocker combination.  Money well spent if you intend to pull a lot of valve springs.

I bought 4 new rims and tires today. I went up in size from 205/75/14 to 205/75/15. The trailer drags it's ass on every driveway. I wanted a little taller tire to get off the ground. I paid $345 for all 4 tires mounted on rims. I also changed my oil. On Saturday, my wife and I drive up to JetBoatPerformance and drop it off. We are getting a new Dominator style energizer pump with a hydraulic pd. we are very excited to hit the water this year!
My old rims will be up for grabs if anyone needs them. I also have the hubcaps. The tires aren't bad either. Lug pattern is 5x4.5.

Spent the whole afternoon tearing apart my pump. It was extremely frustrating... First the nut on the impeller would not come off no matter what I tried, heat, wd, 1" impact wrench, wrench with a 5' cheater bar... Finally cut it off with the die grinder. Then my impeller wouldn't come off and my puller kept slipping off messing up the little ridge there. Ended up cutting that off too since it got trashed when my bearing went out. Anyways as it is now I'm in the market for a suction housing and impeller.

IMHO you should have installed another gate valve. For the record, the hole in the fitting coming from a factory Berkeley hose fitting is only a little over a 1/4" in diameter, you just made it over a half an inch, that has the flow capacity of almost 6 times....

But if a gate valve is a better approach I'm totally open to that, I just want to be able to open it all the way up if I'm cruising thru a channel or something.

If some other people have some other ideas?

The gate valve that was on there is pretty much a set it and forget it deal...

The ball valves biggest issue (again IMHO) is the lack of adjust-ability on the extreme low end of the flow requirement.

If you are trying to control the engine temperature to be constant at all times, I am afraid you are totally wasting your time.

Proper water flow setting is tricky for some folks.

There are a dozen plus threads on this very subject, but here are the highlights.

The water temps on most jets with the open type cooling systems like you have will run at idle about 150*F, then at higher RPM will typically drop to about 120* or even below.

The valve is there to reduce and adjust flow, which, despite what many will tell you, will reduce the overall pressure. If you run that valve at 100% open at anything over a fast idle, you will more than likely blow an intake gasket and fil the engine full of water on the oil side.

The typical Berkeley jet pump can move enough water to support 2,000 HP+, so to say you do not need to reduce the flow by a lot is ludicrous.

The gate valve has the advantage of the ability of being adjusted between 0% and 100% in tiny little increments. It is also equipped with a packing nut that can be tightened to keep it in place.

A ball valve adjustment is not "linear", meaning the valve from 90 degrees (closed) to approximately 75 degrees could very well still be totally closed. Adversely the ball valve is virtually "wide open" from about 40 degrees all the way to 0 degrees. This means you really only have 35 degrees of valve stem motion to play with...

For an idea of how little that is...

[attachimg=1]


Versus the 3,600 (not a typo) degrees of the ten turn gate valve...

Make sense?

Yes it does and I'll switch it back to a new gate valve, I just want to be able to set and leave it, but also be able to open it quickly if I know I'm going to be idling for a while. IE going thru the channel or at pirates where the water is in the 80's and my temp starts heading north of 200, thank you for the advice I think the best way will be to count the turns from closed to where I set it so I can return it to where my "normal" running position is.

A properly set up system should be able to idle until you run out of gas.... Literally hundreds of hours. They typically get to about 150 degrees and stabilize.

I got hooked up :thumbup: Got a early dominator bowl, thanks Jake, took it to Tim at Place, and he machined the outlet to match the droop that I got from him also. He also machined my nozzle for the FTN inserts, which he gave me to see which one would work better, (fine tune ). Got the ride plate, steering extension, all the stainless hardware, everything :thumbup:  To top it off, Tim also traded me my transom adapter, for one that had been already been machined out and powdercoated for the slightly bigger diameter dom bowl. Going to Mac this weekend to install :thumbup: :thumbup: :beer: :beer:  Thanks Tim, @ Place diverter and controls :thumbup: :thumbup:

I use white/clear vinegar right after I get off water. Have used it days later with same results though. Gets most water stains right off.

Worked on getting 2 different diameter bimini frames to work as 1. I'll try it on tomorrow and post a pic. Found the pin hole leak in my fuel tank and pushed my thumb through it, so it will be a bigger patch than I originally thought.

Nice job stitching! I wouldn't even know where to start with upholstery. He'll I have shorts that are missing buttons, so I just pull the belt a little tighter.

I'm missing a cushion that blew out before I bought the boat. Tried to get one made for this trip and no one could get it done. Seems everyone is getting ready for the season and all the shops are busy.

Finished replacing my rotten seat wood. I picked up this upholstery stapler on eBay. Came with the stainless staples for around $100. Sure made this job a lot easier.

Brings back bad memories....
15 years old and the maiden voyage of mine and my buddies 14ft valco aluminum and a 25 hp Johnson.... Throttle stuck full throttle (those things rev to the moon) at the Newport dunes launch ramp, threw me on the floor, smashed a vintage sailboat and motor fell off the transom into the harbor.... Oh yeah it was Easter Sunday and the ramp was packed... The guy in the sailboat came out and yelled, "you better not go anywhere! ". I replied, "I have no fucking motor, where do you think I'm gonna go?!" Not my best moment lol....

It cost $600.00. It is this lady who lives in cypress,ca. She got the material Monday and was finished by Tuesday. After she sewed the material together it took her 45 min to fit it and bam done. Definitely a happy customer.

I'd say 30% has been taken care off by my last paint and body guy which I had to let go...long story...have all the supplies including grinding disc's sand paper filler kitty hair glass etc. Need somebody to come in get her paint ready and preferably paint her too. Got a local guy that quoted me 900 to finish her up but I'd rather look around maybe some fellow member needs the money more.

I did a little research before I decided to paint them because I had the same concerns but after reading some other forums people had good success following the directions on the back of the can that states for enhanced chemical resistance to cure the paint by baking it at 200 degrees for 1 hour. So I did that and I guess we will see.

As far as prep not much. I cleaned the carb by boiling in water and lemon juice for about an hour and that seemed to work great. After that a little masking and spray a few coats. Cost was only $65 and that includes my 2 rebuild kits.

Just curious here...how the hell did you get to the motor with that hoist? I mean isn't the boat and trailer not to mention the pump in the way? Took me the same hoist and 2 more guys from the motor slamming into the inside of my boat once the shaft came out of the pump...cause it was at such a bad angle. Next time I yank a motor out of a boat that's on a trailer I'm renting a backho from home depot lol. Coming out or going in. Would make life so much easier.

Looks good Nate.  Just a little constructive criticism, can your upper plenum be turned around so that the carbs sit more level while on plane?  Just thinking that that might cause some float level issues with the angularity of the engine combined with the angularity of the carb mounting surfaces.

Cheers,

Ok so I was kind of thinking this but was unsure. I bought this setup like this and it was on a jet boat so thought it was ok as is. I will have to look into it.

No disrespect also and I don’t mean to take anything away from Nate’s hard work.  It is just a thought.

Indeed Nate put a lot of work into those carbs and I have great respect for those who wrench on their own, particularly those who pay close attention to the fine details.  I just want the best possible outcome from his efforts.

The installed angle of his jet intake (~4 degrees for standard Berk) influences the installed angle of the engine for drive line angularity.  Inherently, the aft end (the flywheel side) of the engine in a jet boat is lower.  In this picture, it seems that the plenum is installed with the angularity of the carb mounting surfaces angling down towards the stern (thicker side forward).  That combined with angle of the engine install will cause the front float bowls to be much higher relative to the rear float bowls.  This may or may not cause a problem.  He might have enough adjustability in his floats that this never causes a problem.  However, if it does, it will manifest itself as a tuning issue in an otherwise good functioning carb.  Ultimately, the carb angle should be level while on plane.  If you take a look at any form of motor sports that uses Holley (and derivatives) carbs, great effort is made to make the carbs level at ride height.  Manifolds are machined with an angle on the carb mounting surface (see red circle).

Again, not trying to take anything away from Nate and I mean no disrespect by stating my observation.  Just thinking an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.  riverrat, you could be completely right also, it COULD be an optical illusion.  Or maybe I just looked at it out of the wrong eye (I can’t see out of one eye).   :D  In reality, I could not tell for sure unless I measured the angle of the carb surface and compared it to the hull planning surface (next to the intake).  The angle of the carbs to the gunwale, deck, floor, etc. is irrelevant.  Just my humble opinion.

Respectfully submitted,

Joe

you know Joe I'm actually glad that we have this forum and we are all respectful enough to share our own opinions and in actuality I learned something I didn't even take into account... the angle of the dangle of the motor nor did I realize that you could turn the intake around 180 degrees. So I just wanted to say thank you for educating me and its duly noted for when I build my first jet boat. I can totally relate to the angle and how it will affect the floats because Im used to doing rock crawling and so forth.. So all in the end I hope nate gets his setup done correctly and had a blast on his boat... Its fun learning from you guys so once again thank you! :-)

Sure, it's a 598ci with a 1471 Littlefeid blower at 10.5 comp. on methanol, going in this boat

No disrespect also and I don’t mean to take anything away from Nate’s hard work.  It is just a thought.

Indeed Nate put a lot of work into those carbs and I have great respect for those who wrench on their own, particularly those who pay close attention to the fine details.  I just want the best possible outcome from his efforts.

The installed angle of his jet intake (~4 degrees for standard Berk) influences the installed angle of the engine for drive line angularity.  Inherently, the aft end (the flywheel side) of the engine in a jet boat is lower.  In this picture, it seems that the plenum is installed with the angularity of the carb mounting surfaces angling down towards the stern (thicker side forward).  That combined with angle of the engine install will cause the front float bowls to be much higher relative to the rear float bowls.  This may or may not cause a problem.  He might have enough adjustability in his floats that this never causes a problem.  However, if it does, it will manifest itself as a tuning issue in an otherwise good functioning carb.  Ultimately, the carb angle should be level while on plane.  If you take a look at any form of motor sports that uses Holley (and derivatives) carbs, great effort is made to make the carbs level at ride height.  Manifolds are machined with an angle on the carb mounting surface (see red circle).

Again, not trying to take anything away from Nate and I mean no disrespect by stating my observation.  Just thinking an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.  riverrat, you could be completely right also, it COULD be an optical illusion.  Or maybe I just looked at it out of the wrong eye (I can’t see out of one eye).   :D  In reality, I could not tell for sure unless I measured the angle of the carb surface and compared it to the hull planning surface (next to the intake).  The angle of the carbs to the gunwale, deck, floor, etc. is irrelevant.  Just my humble opinion.

Respectfully submitted,

Joe
absolutely the top plenum is bolted on backwards

We are going to do a little fiberglass today. Patch up some areas, fiberglass in those two wood pieces, sand again, primer, and then we ordered this stuff called liner xtreeme. Had great reviews. It's a dyi rhino liner type stuff but we got it in orange. So hoping it is gonna look good! :-/

That's good to know. We got orange so hopefully not as hot as black (the standard color). Worst case scenario we lay a towel down. No biggy! The reason we decided to do that is because we could not find orange carpet anywhere. And we didn't want white or beige because it will get too dirty too fast. Carpets only seem to come in blues, black, maroon, white, and beige.

Took the boat out last weekend to Blythe and had some fuel issues and it was spraying a little oil, I think from the oil pan...  So I just picked up a 830 CFM race carb to replace the Edelbrock 750 CFM it came with and will need to redo all the fuel lines and get a new electric pump.  Then I have to pull the engine to take off the oil pan and re-seal it...  I'm not looking forward that part

Well tried to get shit done on boat because I wanted to do a little testing this coming up weekend before I I head to the river.  Had a couple cold ones and so did some old friends that I have not seen in a wile.  So just clean old fun one of my buddy's just say that is a little big went over board.  This might not be funny to some but hell I don't care.  This is what you get when you drink to much and pass out in the engine building room.  Enjoy and please don't laugh to hard.  I had to so what young bucks don't see when you try to keep up with the older bucks.  LMAO enjoy.

Title: Re: What did you do to your boat today?
Post by: lbhsbz on June 20, 2014, 06:26:17 PM
To collect oil.  Boat engines get run pretty hard, and produce a lot positive crankcase pressure.  Normal breathers on the covers tend to drip oil all over everything, so you run lines to a puke tank, which is sort of a separator...with a breather on top...no more oil mess.  If you're not a beauty queen, you can vent the crankcase into the header collectors so it all burns up and makes no mess.

He picked it up a month ago. Dropped a BBC in it and took it to elsinore today. Ran awesome. We think it could use a pump rebuild.

It actually has a single 80 gal belly tank... 3 fills so you can fill it faster. I guess it was an old parker enduro boat

About 1/8 of wasn't opening.  *bangs head*  Had to notch it to clear but it's all good now!
which makes sense I used to run 5300ish rpm an it's been only hitting 4900ish.

Hopefully nothing catostrophic with my rear end. I dont want the hassle of or the price tag of having to put in a new rear end.

Our boat hasn't been out for 4 seasons. My daughter ask if we had a boat she couid take to Parker for the 4th of July. Told her the Advantage could be ready. Primed the trailer last weekend, painted on Friday, wired on Sat, bunks and boat loaded on Sunday. It's practically a bare hull, so the next couple days for everything inside the boat.

so even if I say an 8 mile circle x2=16 miles. 10 gallon tank = 1.6 mpg.   I guess that is rather normal from what I have read. Well I guess I'm going to have to take it much easier next time out.

Kids are now 28 and 23. They we're raised in that boat, it's 25 years old. I don't worry about them doing something stupid. I'm more concerned about the idiots on the Parker strip. First day out and Vance had to fix a couple of small water leaks. Motor was blubering, ended up changing out the needle and seat on the secondaries. Seams ok now.

Fuel leak spark'd by the alt.
Did it happen when you first hit the key/ starter?
I told the kids to open the motor cover to check for fumes everytime before they start the boat.

One being the valve cover on one side wasn't tightened and oil got on headers. And the second reason being that the oil filter was spewing oil. No catastrophic damage to be found yet

Wasn't that bad. After I moved away from the grassy mud area, I only found one on me. I was talking to this teenage kid. He told me that he put his lounge chair in 2' deep water. Then he sat and dug his feet in the mud. After about 45 min, he said he didn't even realize it, but it looked like he was wearing leech socks when got up.

Good to hear you had fun.  Too fast is right where you want to be.  You can grow into your boat easier than your wallet growing to fit your desire for speed.

Re the flex, I had a Regatta flat bottom that flexed so much that with your foot flat on the hull (no floor), you could feel the ripples in the water through the hull.

Cheers,

Joe

I will wash the sides of the boat and trailer on Sunday.  Mechanically the boat should be OK.
Hopefully Danny will remember to bring my buffer to me on Sunday.

Looks good!

I got home and cut/buffed/waxed about half the boat before it got dark.

I need to pick up a machine to help. Doing this by hand sucks.

Let see- Left the squaws at home and went to river by myself-
1) Found issue with no engine temp- Rehooked up lines correctly, (tee to water pump inlets, not to thermo housing as it was) and added gate valve
2) Installed some inline silencers, (what a freaking bitch, stiff hose does not like to make a bend)
3) Replaced front bunks, as one floated away last time out
Test Drive Sat afternoon, launched at Jack Smiths Launch (won't bring up the float regatta) So drove down to Needles.
1) Adjusted the gate valve to get some heat at a idle, kept adjusting till I got some temp running, boat seem to run better as well
2) AHHH - I can hear myself think! (yeah I run mufflers in my race car too!!) I am 80's head banger, so my hearing is going  :screwy:
3) Ran up past AVI 2-3 mi and shut her down after idling for a bit to see where the water temp creeps up to.
4) Floated and ate some lunch. Fired her up and turned around and was cruzin back. HMMM water in my Ski locker! Water coming out of bilge.
5)Check engine compartment and OH NO!  Water coming from somewhere
6) Found leak on main feed hose from pump, blew right through it, yeah the one I didn't change  :banghead: (now getting a 2nd bilge pump) floated for a while to pump out water. Taped up leak (mental note to add hose to the spares box)
7) Mental note on the way back, Oil pressure is sure much higher, must be the water on the pan cooling it (oil is getting hot, adding a cooler)
8) Made it back but what a mess, pressurized water blew grease from jet all over the engine compartment. Previous owner greased like crazy but never wiped up extra.

Sunday morning got it all cleaned up and made notes so when the engine comes out, what is going to get changed/replaced over the winter-

Don't wait till less than a week before you're supposed to take the boat out to do everything you've been putting off for the past year. :banghead:

got parts for carbs, installed , and "tuned"
scraped all the old grease from inside the wheels. need to replace seals
got new tires for the trailer. good thing i did.
replaced and rewired some of the trailer lights
cleaned electric fuel pump
replaced fuel filter
replaced some fuel lines. a hacksaw sucks at cutting steel braided lines. (or at least I do).
tried to redo some boat wiring, but figured it'll work for now and worry about it next year ;D.

I know some guys have done a lot more in less time, but I'm tired.

go to harbor freight tools and buy a 20 dollar 4" electric grinder then get the 4" cut off wheels to replace the grinding wheel you'll be cutting braided line like butter for under 30 bucks,  also wrap the line in tape where you want to cut and cut right through the tape it helps keeping the line from fraying.

Crank has a nearly 1/8th inch split on one section and groves all over it. One piston left side 3rd has massive dent.

The piston rod bearings had no oil holes in them so gonna research the differences between the two with and with out holes

Yeah i was runnin warm too, but im sure it was related to the t valve, since no water was exiting through the headers it ALL had to exit through the dump so it wasnt able to get out of the block as fast.

Thank you.  I ran it on a Haas VF-1.  Not quite big enough to stand a big block on end.  :-(  We don't have a 4th axis, so we need to get creative with setups.

I am in the market for a Haas VF-5.  Also been looking at the Hurco.  Possibly a good used mill.  I really want to be able to do blocks.

11 axis?!  That is badazz!!!  The programmer/machinist needs to be equally badazz to step up to that kind of machine.

Any info or videos of that in action?

So I told him about the 3D printer I just finished the exhaust system for and he said "yeah but that is for plastics", he about lost his shit when I told him it did titanium and CF.

How much weight did you lose?

Funny you mention that, it ended up weighing exactly the same as a B bowl at 19.5 lbs.  The B bowl has a much smaller suction flange which is where I took out most of the bloat of my G bowl.  I won't know until I get a hold of another G bowl to compare.  My tug boat won't ever notice the difference.

The Dominator bowls have a lot more bloat on both the suction side and the droop side.  The Berkeley doesn't have the same bloat on the droop side, so the results won't be the same on my bowl.

My current Dominator lightning program removes 4.5 lbs.  Ounces add up to pounds and pounds add up to E.T..

Thank you brotherman.  Let me know if I can help.

As far as my tug boat is concerned, it's more a matter of I really wanted to do it and it might bring in a little work.

It's really more for boats like 000 were they are already at the limit and within 100HP of an NHRA pro-stock team.  I have heard that pro funny cars and top fuelers are in the neighborhood of spending $1000 for each pound removed.

Are your old rods totally trashed to where you couldn't get weights off of them?  They will probably be pretty close, but could also be way off.   I would at least see if the piston/rod assembly, in the event of pressed pins, were close.  Could pick up a cheap digital postal scale.  Just a suggestion.

While you got it lifted, consider installing an oil drain hose and if necessary, a head-mounted remote oil filter, or at least one that has the filter opening up so it doesn't spill when you remove it.

Be safe and have fun.

While you got it lifted, consider installing an oil drain hose and if necessary, a head-mounted remote oil filter, or at least one that has the filter opening up so it doesn't spill when you remove it.

Be safe and have fun.

Cheers,

Joe

Thanks Joe! Yeah thats the plan, I have a drain hose on order so hopefully it gets here in time.... If not I plan on pulling the motor in a few months for a dyno session anyway so ill put the hose on then.

Thanks I had your headers done at Embee in May of this year.  The boat had all the chrome so we went with chromex coating.  They look nice but you still have to clean them with mothers.  Will you be going to big bend next month for the socal meet.  My wife liked that boat a lot.

  I'm hoping to be out there, we're goin this weekend for the sw regatta then planning a trip to Parker for October, hopefully I can squeeze big bend in too.I'm thinking about having mine redone this winter, there's a lil rust showin in a few spots and they were cut shorter after the coating so the tips at the ends are rusting a bit. There's quite a few changes I'll be making but for the rest of this season I'm happy with it👍

Well I just about got my engine pulled apart, only a few more things until it's a bare block. All I have left is to pull the harmonic balancer, the crank shaft and the cam shaft. I think I figured out the water in the oil problem. Both head gaskets were bad. All of the cylinders look good. I had a broken ring on the #7 piston. So just pulling it apart I have already found a couple of the problems. I will  probably work on it more tomorrow and then I will have to wait 2 week until I get to work on it due to my deer hunting trip to Wyoming.

Sweet boat for sure. It is going to take a little work to get her back in the water but we will get her there. We were shooting for a local lake trip Thanksgiving weekend but it is looking like we may need a little more time.

Anything tricky I should know or be aware of? What did you help out with?

Nothing tricky at all, it likes horsepower, proposes at low speeds, but the boat itself is bitchen, handles rough water good. I did the wiring on the engine compartment and helped out with alot with putting the engine in and plumbing it. If you know Drake he doesn't half ass anything he has, all top notch stuff

Post by: Jason Benson on November 04, 2014, 03:00:42 PM
Awesome. I hope the porposing isn't too bad. This will be a family boat for the most part but of course we want it to be quick. I like to hear that she handles the rough water well. We are shooting for about 650HP right now but we will see where we end up once we hit the dyno.

Unfortunately I don't know Drake but I have read his build on this boat several times. Where are you located? Maybe if I run into any issues we could get together?

I also have to redo the false floor because whoever had this boat before me took a piece of plywood and just wrapped it in carpet and called it good no fiberglass at all. Oh well it's a good project.

It's a mildy built bbo I'd guess between 400-450. No shoe and ride plate. Seems to ride good maybe a little wet .

Just my opinion but you won't have the ponies to pull a serious droop. It is also my personal preference to never install a droop without a ride plate and properly tuned shoe .

Big waste of effort and hard earned cash . IMHO.

My feelings are that it needs the ride plate to rock back on and the shoe to keep things hooked up.

Keep it like it is until you see the 500+hp mark and lose the handling.

Ideally, yes.

I will admit having done it with a fly cutter installed on a variable speed router. But the hull was flipped and it was not the "right" way to do it. ..

Yes. In my experience, a droop by itself helps in fewer areas it hurts.  You would have to stick with the mini droop  (the short style) .

With a ride plate, you have the advantage of the ride area to help the pump push against. Dramatically improving is effectiveness.

Just my opinions. I haven't seen your hull up close and personal like.

well the rule of thumb is 2 degrees for every 50. 9.9 degrees would be just fine for a 250. On our 150 tune up we ran Sinoco 110 with 4.7 degrees of retard with an NGK -8 gaped at 28. it was still on the fat side but not by much.  :thumbup: :thumbup:

well the rule of thumb is 2 degrees for every 50. 9.9 degrees would be just fine for a 250. On our 150 tune up we ran Sinoco 110 with 4.7 degrees of retard with an NGK -8 gaped at 28. it was still on the fat side but not by much.  :thumbup: :thumbup:

Gotcha ya it's alot of dough, Andy and bostick have me on a lil different tune up so I need something that can pull atleast 11. Trust me that 6 was sounding great. But if I had as much hp as you without the spray I probably wouldn't need a big shot either. Congrats on your new set up! Should be a rocket!

Aquaholic - we certainly do miss the reliability and ease of deuces wild.  Was (sure still is) a great boat.  After our first trip to parker last year though, we did decide we wanted a cat deck boat.  More room for the family and smoother in tough water.  The new boat has been a bit rough going to say the least, but I must say this forum rocks and so much help from all has been great.  At this point the 502 is being built up by the guys at QMP and then dyno tuned before going back in - I dont anticipate any engine issues again :)  Looking forward to getting back on the water for sure!   :beer:

I got this in the mail a couple days ago. I am going to add a 175 HP shot.

What's the best way per cubic dollar to retard the timing? I currently have a 6M-2 box. I have been looking at the Programmable Timing Computer since it's a good price but it looks like you have to lock out your distributor. I really don't want to lock out the timing. So now I am leaning towards the Digital Retard Control or a 6 plus. Any other ideas?

Also, I want to use my claysmith fuel pump (14 to 16 psi) to fuel both the main fuel system and the nitrous fuel system. I am looking at running two fuel regulators and dead head them at 6/7 psi. I also want to run a fuel safety switch on the nitrous fuel system. For the electrical, I am going to run a toggle switch to arm the nitrous system then a microswitch set for full throttle and a nitrous push button. Yada Yada... So does this sound good?

Just went/going through the same thing. I was thinking of a msd-6425 ignition and a msd- 8970 retard. A magnafuel 500 pump running both regulators. And I'm still gonna have locked out timing and a crank trigger. I would love to go with the Msd 6520 and think this is the best dollar for dollar but I need to be able to retard atleast 11 degrees and the 6520 only is capable to retard 9.9 which would work great for your set up. And maybe run a seperate fuel pump for nitrous to avoid a possible lean out. That's my 2 cents.

Ok, so you have to lock out your timing on the msd- 8970 retard box too. If I am running a fuel safety switch to the solenoids (say set 6 psi) should I really have to worry about a lean condition?

6 lbs is good for the safety switch. Start with retarding 2 degrees for every 50 hp shot of nitrous. That will give you a good base line for tuning. 👍👍👍👍
I don't like using the same fuel pump for both nitrous and motor but that's me. I use a Holley blue for the nitrous side and now a aeromotive with a bypass for the motor side.

I can see using a separate fuel system for racing but it just doesn't make sense to me for play. If you're running a safety switch then the nitrous won't fire unless you've got good fuel pressure. Maybe I will do some more homework and see what I find. I plan on running 78/78 fuel and nitrous jets with a 6°-8° retard. I am thinking about running one of my gunnel tanks with a mixture of 91/110 and just switch to that tank when I want to run a nitrous pass. Edelbrock says to use 92 octane pump gasoline or better with 175 HP shot.

I agree. i used the normal squared jetting 2 passes and dumped down the fuel side because it was so fat. It killed my plugs The recomended jetting from Edelbrock and NOS is a fat tune up for sure. Also spark plug gap plays a good role in the tune.  :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Finally installed the tunnel ram - carbs finished being rebuilt  this week and time for some tunning - the single carb was off the old manifold and will be for sale shortly if I can get the duals to run good enough. Can't wait to hit the blue water event and drink some more beers with you all. Noticed everyone here likes I get their pump work done at B1 it sounds - whats a rebuild cost ?? Just curious

Good. Fiberglass the bottom of the boat this weekend. Sanded the trailer found some cracks need to be welded back. It's a lot work in short on time. We been working on it every day after work. It should be painted next week and then we have to put the motor back together. I can't wait until it is all done. 😀

Deep cleaned my engine compartment and polished my pump on the inside of the boat. Got the new motor mounts on the stringer brackets and ready to install. Getting it ready for the fresh motor to come home and drop in. Going to take a few of the interior panels over to the shop tomorrow, some of the piping has come in stapled. Need them to get a little TLC.

Took my new 1350 drive line (which is a bit longer than the old 1310) down to Spenco Machine in Temecula.  They measured the exact difference of the two and created me these billet spacers so I did not have to re-drill the rail kit to keep the motor positioning right.  The spacers will make up the distance of the new drive line in between the tabs on the rail kit and the motor plates.

Great guys when you need custom things with exact math done.

Thanks. I just got some bad news my pump is no good. So nothing in my boat was good.

It really all depends on how things measure out, but I don't see anything that can't be detailed out.

Does it turn freely without any tight spots?  Remember that the packings will put a lot of drag on the shaft.

Do you have any pics of the inside of the bowl?  As long as there are no chunks missing, I'm sure it is not as bad as you think.

Joe

I see the cracks no (wonderful feature zoom is).  I will try to find a good used thrust bearing and impeller if you are interested.  I know we don't have any good used shafts.

Where are the grooves?  On the bushing end?  Bowl bushings can be sourced from McMaster-Carr, I will get the part number ASAP.

I'm not great with names, but I think it's Tom Peterson who does great work out of your area.  I hate to see you stall after all that work.

Like I stated on FB, that is an easy one. We have fixed much larger problems than that on a river bank. Depending on how much HP you are planning, this is about a three or four hour job with minimal materials. Most of which can be found in good shape used. I would not stress this as much as you are.

The housing looks to be OK, the impeller is toast and should not be used, the shaft is easily replaceable and or can be repaired/sleeved, everything else is maintenance parts.

Let me know if there is anything I can do to help. A worn out pump is a silly reason to stop you from benefiting from all the hard work you guys did.

And I agree with Joe. Really don't look to abnormal.

Started working on removing the trailer so we can flip this big dog.  Once wrong side up I can fix a bunch of rock bar damage from the previous owner and get everything back to square.  Now that the intake is reset I can also blend the keel transition to feed the pump better.  Probably shoot gel on the bottom before it goes back on the trailer.

Thanks in advance.

Ambitious was actually purchasing this pile, it is bordering on insanity at this point but this is the disease that is jet boats.  I took a few pointers from some of the old timers doing the big Schiada and Spectra flips.  I built a sort of rotisserie as just about the center of the transom with some extra metal stock I had.  Utilized a few of the existing holes in the transom and plated the interior side with aluminum for a backer to the hardware.  Wrapped a chain around this mount twice to prevent it from slipping off and it allows for the boat to rotate around this point.  I will reset the bow strap to one side instead of straight on to naturally roll the boat as we lift.  At this point the boat is empty with only a sub floor installed, more pics to come as we actually roll it over.

So the chain steel that chain is wrapped around... just slides as it rotates? And your supporting the load with your two hoists only right?... No stands?

The steel chain slips around the steel tube that is welded to my "rottisserie" mount if that makes sense?  Light pressure on either corner of the transom is all it takes to get this thing to rotate. Currently I have it supported on stands off the trailer as we create space for this to happen, once flipped it will land on these stand direct to the stringers for support.  Placing it back on the trailer upside down doesn't set it at a good working height, stands will allow it to sit lower.

Just for lifting, it currently sits on stands and bracing.  The bow eye is backed by a 2"x 6" sandwiched by a 3/8" aluminum plate on the interior of the hull, this was the first step to ensure it could handle the roll and not blow out the bow.

I am debating doing a n almost identical hull, that's why I ask.  Will it balance just being supported by the stringers or are you going to support under the bow as well?

Thanks again,

I think it will need something under the bow along with the stringer support.  This thing is long from dash to bow, I don't think there will be enough counterbalance without something up front.  I will cross that bridge when we get there, might be minimal weight at that point.

I can't say I have done stringers yet but make sure you measure everything to keep it square and centered.  Building a jig from the original dimensions could help locate the new stringers in the hull as well.  Also, looks like you're using epoxy and not a laminating resin.  You should make sure to sand those stringers real good before each layer of epoxy you build up and do not lay too many glass layers in one pour as they may not wet out properly.  Epoxy is good stuff and this repair is going to be very strong if done right. Take your time and you will be fine.
Title: Re: What did you do to your boat today?
Post by: JARVIS on February 18, 2015, 03:34:10 PM
It's a non blushing epoxy. If your still concerned.... wipe it down with soapy water.  The best stuff to remove the amine blush. after that....you can give a quick sand to give next layup a little tooth to hold on to. After the sanding, wipe with acetone. Should be ready for next layup.  Epoxy tends to run and you'll get that on vertical surface...like stringer.  You can thicken resin cabosil, etc. To give it a little thickness and minimize how much runs down. Just a little....kinda like syrup....honey consistency maybe to think. It's won't add much strength.... just to help control the resin from running to lowest point leaving the glass with too little resin.  Aside from that....make sure stringers fit as flush as possible ... use braces to keep them square... add some weight to the tops to keep them against Hull.
Also, radius the top corners of the wood....glass doesn't like 90 degree bends. And for bottom where it meets Hull....you'll need a filer of some sort(not bondo) to create a radius from stringer to Hull. Plastic spoon is good enough of a radius.. you can use it as a tool.
As for epoxy itself....I'd mix it in a cup....(must be exact....VERY little wiggle room) then poor in a flat tray....little a paint tray. Epoxy gets hot...and in a cup the volume generates heat quick and you loose your pot. In the tray heat dissipates and pot lasts longer.  Have a plan of attack as epoxy may  too fast to do one whole side. It's possible. You gotta super quick and have a helper.
Keep us updated.  ,

I think I'm going to turn this project into a race theme. Maybe make an easy up and print  SoCal flag in the back ground.
