I believe they are 600's (they are Edelbrock, im just not 100% that they are 600CFM)
I'm waiting for an email reply to get all the specs on everything. I'll add it when i do.

Chili, Belmonts were made in Fresno and to my recollection most "notorious" for their Flatty's sean a few over the years always nice high quality boats Good luck with your new project ! Tom

Yea thanks Tom,
Its a bummer, Belmont Boats went out of business 4 years ago, but i am going to call tomorrow, & maybe stop by Belmont Marine on Tuesday. Maybe they have "a guy" who can tell me more.
If the numbers on that back weren't so shady i wouldn't even doubt it, but they are.. lol

Yea, Belmont Boats was know for its flat bottoms in the 60s. They were a custom manufacturer that built quality boats. I got to know the owner in 1978/79, but haven't been by the old shop (located just west of HWY 99 on Belmont--across from the cemetary) in many years. From what I remember, their jet boats were solid and fairly heavy with a long "crowned" deck, but with straight bottoms and a good ride. I used to see them regularly around the Fresno area, but very seldom see any--except for a couple major projects listed for sale in the past year or two. I have seen several pretty nice flat bottoms recently.

If you want, I'll check to see if there is anyone left at the shop, so give me a call--might save you a trip.

Yup i got it from "BIG D" lol

It ran great the few times we took it out before the season ended, but now it is stripped down & we are removing the rubrail so it is all ugly right now. lol (grinding, etc)

Going to patch up the transom holes, & replace the interior also.

I would love to have all the specs for the motor.!!
It ran GREAT, but we only got about 55mph out of the boat.

PM sent, & number saved.

I'm gonna call tonight..

Is there anything i should pay extra attention to.?
I think we found everything, but you never know.. looks like one stringer could be replaced. but since we're capping it & sealing the transom might as well do it now. :)
