Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Thermostat or no Thermostat in a BBC?
« on: November 01, 2010, 09:48:01 pm »
Hey guys I just had my 454 rebuilt, and wanted to know if I run thermostat in it or leave it wide open without one?

From some Jet boat guys told me to run it wide open, my friend whos a great car guy told me put a thermostat in it or it will never warm up.

Wanted to know what you guys thought since you guys probably know,  Thanks alot.

Hey guys, I found a GM crate motor on craigslist that had 7K miles on it and was put in a motorhome that burnt down, so the firedepartment hosed the thing and water got in it, it sat for two years. I got it for 400 bucks and its in great shape BUT!

I pulled the pan and the heads, the cylinder walls have light surface rust, most of it you cant feel the difference between the clean walls, but there are a few spots.
Do you think I need to have the block bored and get new pistons?   I cleaned the cylinders and heads and they came cleaner than I thought.

Thanks guys,

The kind like in I/O Boats?  and where can you get one if so? thanks.

Hey everyone, I just got my first boat two days ago. its a 1974 Tahiti, came with a berkely JG pump which supposedly only has 10 hours on it, Jetavator with Hydro place diverter. The upholstery is in great shape and its three tone, the bimini top is new and covers the whole cabin. GT wheel and nice guages, Nice speakers with an amp, wired for subs. It came on a Tandem axle Trailer with good tires. It is set up for a 454 BBC and I think I was given all the marine parts for it, it doesnt have the motor in but I got the old broken one taken apart. I got it for $1000 bucks, did I get a deal? Are Tahitis good boats? are BBC boats a good setup?

Thanks Guys,

heres a link to the boat I bought
