The No Wake Zone / Fuel Storage
« on: February 28, 2018, 08:39:25 am »
Thinking about storing bulk fuel out at our place in parker in the detached shed.  The shed is covered, on the north side of the structure and has a couple vents (2 on the floor and one at the peak).  I figured a pressure relief valve would be in order with the extreme heat.  Planning on getting a steel 55 gal drum and a 12v electric transfer setup.
Does anyone else do this?  If so, what is some tips/tricks? 
Is it a bad idea?

Thnx

WTB / Wood Skis
« on: January 27, 2018, 08:37:29 am »
Looking to buy a couple wood skis.  Going to make a couple signs for the river house.  People on Ebay think theirs skis are made of gold plus id have to pay shipping and there hasn't been a lot of options on craigslist.  They don't need to be in good condition or anything since Ill be removing the bindings and sanding.

So if you have some old skis in your garage that are wood let me know.

Im in Corona.....  PM or Text (preferred)  714-300-9974

Thanks

I called comp cams. They ask all the right questions as far as your set up, impeller, etc. you tell them what you are looking at getting out of it and they will suggest the cams they would recommend. Very easy and quick way to get a little more info.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Single cable Morse helm shaft adapter
« on: August 20, 2016, 05:53:13 pm »
I have a morse single cable helm on the hallett that has a morse bezel and steering wheel adapter. I'd like to run this (see pic). Can I run that or do I have to run the morse style bezel with shaft adapter. I am going for this look (see pic 2). Or do I need a different helm to run billet shaft adapter?

The pump is mounted in the normal mechanical pump Spot off the side.

I put my old pump back on with new needle and seats and all is good.

So the needle and seats were bad but I replaced them a year ago.

So I was wonder if this is a common problem. The 8psi pump blowing the seals every year or is something else going on. The boat was in the garage all year and wasn't outside.

I have options, but I'm just trying to figure out the best configuration based off of others experience. I don't wanna just buy parts to try and figure it out if others have had this issue.

So maybe a 5.5-6.5 psi pump with more volume than a stock 460 fuel pump? 

Or a higher PSI pump regulated down to whatever my sweet spot would be?

Running 3/8" lines from the tanks to the pump and 3/8" lines from pump to carb with a fuel filter in between.   I was suspecting the volume was to low but I'm not sure how to calculate the volume needed to run.

Is the higher pressure blowing the o rings out on my needle/seats?  They hold for a year or so and then can't handle the pressure? 

Thanks for the responses so far.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Fuel pressure issues

Ford 460 stock internals (except the cam) with a holly DP 750.

Went to fire the boat up before the trip and gas shot up out of primary vent tube. So I checked the floats and all was good as well as the needle and seats. Cranked it again and another geyser of fuel blew thru the vent tube. So I switch the primary and secondary needle/seats and the same thing happened again.

Check the holly website and they said anything over 7 psi will cause a flooding situation. I was at 8 when cranking. So I got another fuel pump rated for 6.5 psi and all was good.

Went out for some bug runs and at 4K RPMs I would lose all pressure, but if I stayed under 4K rpm all was good. Ran into Parker and got some needle/seats and put the old 8 psi pump on and all was normal.

My question is how is everyone else configuring their fuel delivery?  Are my needle/seats gonna go bad every year?  Should I just keep some on hand?  Or should I get a 8+ psi fuel pump and regulate it down? 

I've search here on the boards and didn't come across a thread with the same issue as mine. I know the different options out there with self regulating fuel pumps, but I'm fine with a mechanical, or do I need a higher volume pump with a lower PSI?

I'm just a little confused with holly saying 7 psi is bad, but my I need something rated at 8 psi to run over 4K.

Thoughts?

i have the same year hallet and had as much foam as you also found 6 beach balls on the end of the foam so it didn't spread all the way to the front also found the original owners keys lol everything weighed 47 lbs


Sent from my iPhone using SoCal Jet Boats

Brian, and difference in way the boat rides after the foam removal?

Same here. The foam didn't fully fill the bow. It was actually loose in there moving front to back. Which was one reason I wanted to remove it. I was worried about the foam being wet in there too.

As for people being on the bow I don't  let anyone lay or walk up there. My dad never let anyone do it and that "rule" stuck with me for whatever reason.   

We are solely river people (Parker and bullhead). So I figure if I start taking water on I can point it towards the shore. But I am looking into some inflatable type devices to put in the bow.

Time will tell if it was a good decision or not in my situation. The added storage will be the biggest benefit. Just hoping the boat still rides good. Which from the people I talked to they said no difference.

Just updating this thread....

I pulled the carpet and notice the access hole was already cut and as expected the bow was full of foam. For better or for worse I removed the foam. Took about 4 hours and I used a spade shovel, crowbar, sawzall, and a cats paw. Ended up filling 5 black trash bags of foam. It's slow going as you get started but eventually you get bigger chunks as you chip away.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Re: Bassett header coating?
« on: March 17, 2016, 05:39:08 pm »
I looked into this myself. I'll share what a powder coat guy told me. He said...if you run them wet you can get away with powder coating. Which his cost would have been $180 for both. If you run them dry they would have to be ceramic Coated which was approx a little less than double the cost (I think). BUT...he recommends having the chrome chemically removed which at "his costs" was about $200.  Additionally neither of the coatings looked nothing like chrome even tho they were called "chrome". This is just information one guy told me, not sure if it helps. I might be looking into rechroming mine at some point.

Can't go wrong at shoor. Or even IMS in Irvine they usually have a nice scrap bin in the back.

I was thinking head gasket but wouldn't it seem weird that all 4 cylinders would be lower in comp and not have any water in none of them?  What about a warped head?

Additionally could you get the boat up to temp in the drive way hooked up to water to test the comp for the warm compression test?  Instead of disabling the pump or backing it back in the lake?

Thnx for the foot work GT. I think I'll look into using your first option. Bending the aluminum won't be an issue with my neighbors brake. I'll order a couple and see what I come up with.

Thnx for the responses guys. Yourmom I thought about that idea, but I'd prob have to remove the seats to remove those panels (when needed) which would be a pain.

GT. I looked at similar hardware, but your look a lot nicer. I wish you had some time on them so you could tell me how they function.

The areas are small. 10" tall by 36" long on both sides. Then maybe one going across the transom (but probably not). That panel will be about 48" long.

Does anyone know of the large looking money clip style ones I referred to?

Thanks guys.
