Once I disconnect the jet from motor I'll know what deal is, pump is clean no ,weird play in shaft, impeller is Clean and snooth, grate is not bent at all...I am going to see if motor spins, if it doesn't, I'm pulling it. My buddy who builds motors said I can bring it over after he finishes somone else's build.

just saying....

its a bit of work to pull pump, just to spin motor over by hand.  if pump is good to go, it shouldnt prevent you from turning motor over....and should not be at risk of damaging pump.  youre turning it over by hand....

its your float...do what you wish.  just tossing in a couple pennies

I'll start a thread, Very excite for my first build. Feel like I have a great platform to start with.  I need to see of both spin freely, the pump had a small amount of play fwd and back, I want to make sure wear washers is good also. I'm almost 100 percent that this motor needs some sort of break down  so disconnect is eminent. Don't want tk make this two hard, but im going to be  thorough.

I'm pretty sure he's disconnecting the driveshaft from the pump and motor. I didn't see anywhere that he said he's completely pulling the pump.

Off topic, but was just by your house the other day at the union hall lol

I'm sure I'll have a great time, it's what needs to happen. I have to figure out where to start. For the price, I am assuming the worst.

have fun

It takes me like 5 minutes to disconnect my pump. 4 bolts on the crank and 4 nuts for the u-bolts. I do it always now to run the engine so as to save my nice B1 built pump.

Like I said. Just my 2 cents.
Some may feel it's necessary to disconnect pump from motor to spin engine over, by hand....not under power, then cool.
It was mentioned the pump was solid...or at least he felt it was...that the engine may be in question. This is where I'm coming from.
Again.
His boat. No one has to do anything I suggest.

Apologies if it (or this) came across as an order or with I'll intent.

No problem jarvis, appreciate replies ,all of them. After I told my uncle about this, he gave me a long block 454 sitting in his garage, granted he is 8 hours away.  I'm really pumped up about this project/ boat

update, main bearing spun, It had lots of metal in the oil pan, all sizes from metal dust to chunks... my plan of attack is going to A: buy new motor and start over ( i prefer this because itll have a warranty), or B: build a 468 and get the machine work done. everything besides motor are in great shape. It has been slow going because  of family shit, but im stll just as happy as before.
