Where do you have your MSD box mounted, if you're running one? Mine is on a bracket on the cylinder head; however,  I'm concerned about engine vibration affecting it.

Thanks guys, I'll follow your recommended lead mcderns. Not super duper realistic on the graphics, but also no as basic as P40 Warhawk flying tiger.

New to me hull for the mill. It's got new stringers & floor, but I want to paint her. I'm ordering new tanks out of Florida for her. 4" through hull exhaust. Just got the new Autometer gauges, and building the new wiring harness this winter. I'm shooting to get her in the water this summer. Midwest has a short boating season. I just got back to work after 6 month recupe from a second rotator cuff surgery.

Is there anyone within this forum know some one of caliber, in Illinois, that can custom paint a boat? No one I've talked to, is either willing, capable, or of quality, seems to be able to do it. This fucking state is devoid of capability in this arena.
I've got a 73 Southwind SJ18 I need a custom paint done on. It needs to be painted/airbrushed like a great white shark.
The only people who'll even look at me quoted $9,000. Are you f.....g kidding me.
HEEEEEEELLLLLLPPPPPPP. PPPPLLLLEEEAAASSSEEEE!!!!!!!

Pick your cam after you know what your compression ratio is, since you are switching to flat tops from relieved pistons.

Do you have any pictures of the logs and snail, and the intake? How much are you looking to get and where are you located?

I'm looking for logs or headers and a intake also looking for gauges and seats available anything else 455 related
I've got 2 sets of logs w/ snails, 2 Edelbrock Torqer intakes and even a 800 CFM spread bore Holley marine for them (no funky adapters needed), 1 set of original chrome Pack-a-jet valve covers, 1 set aluminum fabricated tall non baffled valve covers, 2 HEI BBO distributors, Berkeley E pump SS loader (new), E pump hydraulic place diverter with pump, new after market 5qt oil pan.

Let me know, I've got to get rid of these soon and fairly cheaply.

Not everything is gospel, but, with 2 GM engineers (Joe & Bill) being in agreement on many of the oiling issues/mods, I'll lean in their direction. Imho.

No I did not get that info on the last page. Might I recommend something. Try reading those books, I did and still do. When Joe Mondello personally told me in a face to face conversation concerning oiling, Oldsmobiles have sub par oiling compared to Chevy and Ford, and ALL should have restrictors in a minimum of mains 2-4, because the feed galleries are too big to the cam bearings.

Restricted push rods can help there too.

Projects / Just got this home...73 Southwind
« on: March 12, 2018, 06:09:43 AM »
Stringers and floor all replaced, 5hrs on rebuilt motor, trailer reconditioned and new lights.

Not too shabby. I guess Leviathans mill is going in this until I get that hull finished. Wife said I better get life insurance.

Not bad for $4500 I think.

Also, when 3 of the biggest names in Oldsmobile building (Joe Mondello, Bill Travato, and Dick and Andy Miller) advise it, it's probably a good idea.

Pressure is only restriction to flow. Clearances are paramount in in this yes, absofuckinglutely, ever found it without making them correct? They're all over the place, you're assuming they're correct and equal, think Pascals law. He had an engine failure, not a total blow out but a failure none the less, plus wear already on the bearings and journals. A Melling HV pump will assist in keeping the guts a little happier for a small increase in cost. I'm not saying put a Titan gerotor pump on it, instead of the 29.99 Advance auto special, a little more on the pump in quality and no additional work.

Several, due to original design flaws, the success of their corrections, and the EPA vs. manufacturing design.
1- Oldsmobiles over oil the upper end via the cam lube circuits, pound in or thread in restrictors reduce this issue saving more of the volume for the mains and rods which have high bearing speeds (large journals need more oil volume)
2- The cam design is flat tappet, which is a parkerized finish (hardening), the EPA mandated zinc removal of all automotive oils due to its damaging effects on catalysts. So, no zinc, no finish protection, higher heat issues at lobe/tappet contact, more volume alone helps cool the metals, that's one of oils purposes, heat removal. So add ZDDP additive also.
This may have been the cause of your cam failure
3- Cost vs. return, minimal increase in part cost with greater gains in return, see benefits above.

Will that explanation suffice?

Put an HV pump on it. You've got a 10 qt pan, why put a stock OE pump on it when for a little more, you can do it the right way. You've got to do the oil mods on Oldsmobiles. Put the restrictors in mains 1-4 and the HV pump with correct pick up.
These mods are minimum and negligible in cost, compared to having to go back into it again.

Now if I could find a good useable Oldsmobile DRCE, that'd be another story.

The cam profile will present itself with a little load .

It'll push an induced AAmag bronze impeller.
