welcome back cupcake! ;)

Welcome to the cruiser club!
Mine finally made it back home so hopefully I'll get to see some water this year....
Doubtful with all the work it needs.
As of right now I'm shooting for the summer of 2018!

Holy shit. You lost?  And the distributor goes in the back.

Jim ..... does it ever seen like I know where I'm at?
C'mon man.
The only time the distributor is on the front is when you're going in reverse!

Love is grand, divorce is 100 grand.
Keep the wife and hide the boat
You know why divorce is so expensive?
Because it's worth it.

One of my favorite sayings is "Everything is difficult until it is easy."  Some things take a lifetime to master.  Regardless, kudos for putting forth the effort and succeeding.

I'm going be cautious about sharing too many of my thoughts regarding cooling, as it tends to be a controversial topic around these parts.

Bassett has this http://www.bassettracing.com/faq1.htm to say about water lines.

In another thread, Timm posted:

The setup in my boat utilized a mechanical fuel injection jet to restrict flow to the spiders in this same manner.

If you are using the typical -3 to 1/8NPT JIC fittings http://www.mcmaster.com/#50635k371/=xram4m, they have a .125 minimum inside diameter (ID), which does not provide much, if any, restriction after the .13 ID tube the spyders are constructed from.

I think too much flow at too low a pressure will cause water to stream out of nozzles rather than atomizing to cool the hot exhaust gases.  The high volume of water streaming does not evaporate but pools in the bottom of the header primary tubes where the exhaust pressure blows it out of the weap holes.

There is much written about this topic here.  Before I go telling you you to redesign your system, I suggest you read up on the topic and then evaluate exactly what you have.  Then you can make an educated decision on where to go from there.  Remember that there is always help here.

Good luck,

Joe

Great advise joe!
As I've learned over the years from this site, what works for me flawlessly, is appearantly wrong and should not be duplicated.
Either do your own research or find a reputable mechanic or knowledgeable person and follow  just their advise.
So easy to get lost and turned around .

Say any of you high society boaters gonna be out tomorrow, or is today when only all the cool kids come out and play?

Gotta be out there with all the cool kids or you might as well just sell the boat.
Don't worry, me and you can watch from the dock 😔

Im from Hanford. Just bought my 79 Eliminator this winter. Have been to Kaweah quite a few times this year. The lake is low but it has plenty of water to cruise.
Sweet ride!

Brand new pump berk jc w place divertor . Yea I ran it till I could not gain anymore rpm 4k was all I got
Not that the Olds will like it,  but you need more rpm.
Unless the boat is doing exactly what you need,  then I'd say your doing just fine.

I sort of agree.

Sup buddy?

GT
Without knowing the condition of the bottom, water, pump, rigging, how the boat was loaded or what it was loaded with, that's not a bad number.

A better indicator would be running the motor till it falls on its face. 
But he didn't do that and the Olds held together,  so that's a feat in its self.

Further the better to keep the fuel cool.
