Hulls / Rub Rail
« on: January 26, 2016, 02:26:07 pm »
I am trying to find some rub rail for an 18' Advantage bubble deck (18' Rogers Bonneville). It is the 5/8" wide with the flat back(no lip) and the rubber insert.
 Does any one know of a source for this type of rub rail?

I would like to hear what options there are, for increasing bearing clearances.
 In particularly, clearances on a turned down crank!
 After going thru a long block that i recently picked up and just checking the main and rod clearances with some plastigauge, looks like the they are a little tight.
 The crank is a 10/20, freshly ground, with new bearings. I verified that the bearings are Clevite P series ,010 and .020 undersize bearings.
 With pastigauge, the mains came in at, #1 .002, #2 .002+/-, #3 .002, #4 .002+/-. I say #2 & #4, +/-, because it didnt appear to be dead nuts on the 2 thousandth gauge width.
 Rods 1-8 appeared to be .0015, as best as i could tell.
 I have #1 piston out, so for curiosity, i miced the #1 rod journal and it measured 2.1790. If a standard rod journal is 2.1990, that 1.020 under size, right?
I zeroed a bore gauge to the mic and compared the rod bore, with bearing, torqued to spec, measured 90* from parting line, and found a
 .0015 differance. Kinda backs up the plastigauge, if i did it right?
 This is not a big Hp motor, but it is pretty much an Ls6 454, with i think a smaller cam profile.
 I need to get the clearances figured out, so i can get on with putting this back together.
 
So what are the options for increasing cleasances, in a situation like this?

« on: March 27, 2014, 07:53:23 pm »
I know there are a lot of prop boats that run on the river, but is there any one on here that can give some insight to running the props on the lower river areas?
I have a 20 Spectra with an IO.
I am intrested in the areas of laughlin, Needles, Parker, Big River and Aha Quin to Blythe.

I/O's / BBC mercruiser centerrise exhaust spacing.
« on: March 21, 2014, 04:59:39 pm »
Any one know what the exhaust centerline spacing is for a BBC mercruiser centerrise exhaust.
I know I have seen diagrams with dimentions, before, but for some reason cant seem to find them
I need the centerline dimentions, from the crankshaft centerline, or drive centerline, to the center of the exhaust tips.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Questions about Gen5 454 BBC
« on: February 15, 2014, 11:12:29 am »
I am looking at a complete, supposedly running gen 5 454, casting# 10114182, which is a 4 bolt block, with ,i am sure, cast internals. The engine is complete from throtle body to pan and fan to flex plate, including wireing harness and computer.
I am looking at this engine, to hopefully put in the boat, just to get back on the water for this season. The guy is wanting $480 and i am sure i can get it for $400. I was looking at the same engine, at my local junk yard, for $800+ tax.They are wanting $1000+ tax for a mark iv, at the junk yard!
 I have a few questions about the difference between the mark IV and the gen5 engines.
 I know the gen 5 has no fuel pump boss and i would have to run an electric fuel pump.
 
My main concerns are the oil pan and intake manifold/ carberator.
 Would it be safe to run the stock oil pan or is it imperative to run a bigger oil pan.
 
Is there a difrence in intake manifold fitment, between mark iv and gen 5?
 If not, how would a tunnel ram w/ two 600cfms work on a bone stock 454 truck engine? If not so good what might a good intake and carb be for a stock 454?

Are the front and rear bolt patterns the same between the mark iv and gen5? would my mark iv engine plates, fit the gen5?
 
Any thing else I need think about to just stick the engine in the boat and run it?

« on: January 01, 2014, 01:54:32 pm »
Has any of you Vegas folks, heard of John Keller and J&S machine shop, or John Keller racing engines?
 I visited their shop today, to look at a crank, and check out their shop to possibly do work on my block.
They look like a respectable shop, just have never heard of them before.

I/O's / Converting from logs to center rise exhaust
« on: August 26, 2012, 09:33:23 pm »
I have a 81 Spectra 20 With a 260 Mercruiser. I am going to convert the exhaust, from the log style to center rise and thru hull exhaust. I will be getting rid of the Y pipe and installing a block off plate.
 Do I have to buy a different Tstat housing, or can I use my existing housing?
 Is there any thing else that won't work with the conversion, like accessory brackets and such? thanks........Hal
