Title: Just a pre winter overhaul
Post by: jamiemwedmore1234 on September 23, 2015, 12:01:29 PM
So since I had to pull the motor and have a cyclinder sleeved I have some down time to do some overhauling .so I pulled all the carpet out going to pull the tanks out .my plan it to rhino line the interior section and bilge coat the back and clean the carpet and glue off the tanks. Got a estimated from a rhino liner place of about 500-700$ to do it in any color.need some input pro,s con,s.  Also want to fill in all the unused bolt holes through out my stringers I was thinking of using wood dowels and resin. I plan on leaving the stringers in  natural form. And need some advise on stripping the glue off of the tanks planing on leaving them uncovered just a cleaner install

Dowels and resin is how I filled unnecessary holes in my stringers. I used a random orbital sander to get all the nasty carpet glue off the tanks. I left them at a 220 or 400 grit, I can't remember. They looked good at that point, but you could always polish them out! Flow coating the floors will be way cheaper than $5-700. It'll look better and won't get hot during the summer.

Don't rhyno line it bud, that texture will keep dirt and grime in it. Flow coat it and it will look awesome. And it won't cost you a whole lot to do.

Floors, stringers, transom, and bulk head were all sanded. Repairs were made, then everything was coated in resin. From there everything but the stringers were sanded with 220 before laying down the "flow coat"

It's somewhat slippery, but not as bad as I thought. You have to be careful. Maybe a strip of carpet between the center stringers wouldn't be a bad idea.
One thing I like about the flowcoat is it cleans up nicely. Earlier this summer we hit storms on the way to the river and loaded it up with chairs, ezup, etc. After all that abuse it buffed out easily.

The mess in the pics below rinsed out with soap and water. That was from a storm we hit on rice road.

Carpet glue eliminator.  And it won't sand off your resin.

Probably end up coating the floor with resin to seal it all up and creat a nice surface for the bilge coat

It's relatively easy on the resin.  The matrix has silicone carbide in it, which is very hard.  But the matrix flexes.  It will scratch the resin, but it won't really take off any significant amount of material unless you really hold the wheel in one spot for a long time, and over-heat the resin.  Think of it as a really heavy-duty Scotch-Brite pad.

Off the glass...or tanks...or both?

That stuff says not to use on aluminum. I've done so...turns it black...ish

I pulled the carpet out of the storage space in my keel.  I cleaned it before removing the bulkheads.  I couldn't believe it took the glue off so easily.

I wouldn't try it on the fuel tanks.  It might only dull the finish or it might turn it black.  I've seen it go ways.  I have been using it to clean all my aluminum diesel parts, going to powder coat, and it hasn't affected any of them.

My tanks are glassed in and one looks really terrible.  Getting the carpet glue off is the least of concerns.

Well took it out today ran pretty good lost a couple of mph still working on a good tune  probably put a set of plugs and play with the timing. Do have some question for the ol timers my motor builder says time it at 32-34 degrees and a good buddy of mine that loves stroker motors says nothing over 30 degrees what do you think and spark plugs I currently running ac r44t is there a better plug to run.  Motor is 9-1 496 stroker 4-1/4 stroke crank  cam is 264*duration .050  .630 lift  valve timing 108*set at 105* carb is hp 950 jets 86 all 4 corners  current rpm wide open throttle 5,800  thanks in advance

Your engine combination will like what it likes.  One timing value is not the magic end-all be-all that every BBC, BBF, or whatever should be set at.  You need to time testing and tuning (not at an event) to arrive at your best possible tune.

Once you get your air/fuel ratio under control, you can then start power tuning your timing.
