Well that was a random pic although I do want the gate for what a gate was intended for which is on/off operation.  So for emergency yes a gate to close is good to stop water

Gates are not for throttling flow.  Yes you can hit a sweet spot on most boats I couldn't get it in the sweet spot had to use the Pressure regulator/relief so I eliminated the need to throttle any kind of valve for flow through my block by regulating pressure (using a gauge to set and see a known pressure)before it enters.  Im not saying anything to argue just saying how I experienced my block pressure issue to be solved.  The pressure is set before it enters the block so no big pressure surge from the pump and still has good water flow. 

I'll finish by saying this on your garden hose at home when does your Gate valve on your hose bib do most of its work = At first Open/close spot of turning the valve anymore from near closed doesn't do much.  So there is the problem of the gate to regulate.
Granted Gallon in Gallon out if the discharge is as large as the intake and the water rushes out the block as fast as it enters you wont have excess block pressure. Theres just no restriction your gate isnt doing much. 

Im gonna bring some analog gauges pump Coreolis meter pressure regulator and some beer over so we can play myth busters.

No doubt the gate is cheapest route all smack talk aside the relief setup fixed my problem on my boat and if you have issues with excess pressure I didn't believe when I first heard about it because I had to think about the process for a few days but I swear by it now.

Oh thats an old GM number but Im sure comp and crane have something thats a match.  Its pretty mild but you can search for one to match powerband.  Remember this rule of thumb the guy who picks cam that is just too much cam for his motor is dissapointed.  The guy that went conservative would like a lil more.  You dont want a cam to make power at 4500-6500 when your boat only turns 5000 max.  A motor that pulls hard will always bring smiles even if it isnt the fastest and in a stock motor mild will be the best money spent IMO. 
Id look for 1500-4500 something like that

You need this to keep your head gaskets from blowing.

I use it to blow GTs head gasket.

Alot of cam options but I always like the 6272989 cam for stock 454. 

I'm not sure what you are gonna do with the motor.   Or what RPM it turns.  Does it have stock heads?  Did you even get to see what RPM it turned?  Im a believer in Torque is king so dont go to big on the cam get one which powerband matches your Target RPMs

Is the 750 vacuum secondaries?  Those are usually more forgiving to engine size application. 
How did you set the floats on the 850?
850 is huge for stock 460 but shouldnt cut out sounds like lack of fuel
Go back and start over
Step#1 set floats remove sight plug loosen lock screw turn adjusting nut until fuel level is at bottom of sight plug hole.  Clockwise lowers counter raises fuel level
Step#2 set "Curb Idle" turn idle screw 1-1/2 turns from having the plates seated in the bores is a good rough setting. 
Secondary idle speed adjustment is 1/2 to 1 turn away from plates seated in the bore.
Fast idle adjustment is made with fast-idle screw on highest step of the fast-idle cam.  Clearance between the primary throttle plate and the throttle bore should be 0.025 inch.

I cant let it go.  I dont hear Irish Italian Chinese bitchin or American Indians bitchin.  My Grandma grew up as a half bred Indian her dad couldnt get work because of it.  Her and her twin sister shared homemade dresses.  The family of 5 lived in a handbuilt shack in Oaklahoma.  Didnt have a freezer or fridge they put stuff in the neighbors ice box.  Went through Great depression dropped outta school 8th grade went and picked cotton.  Her brother served WW2 they jumped on a rail car came to Richmond Ca shipyard.  My Gma and her sister welded and were both Rosie the mofo Riverter.  She had 3 kids 3 jobs never once had a new car or tv in her 88 yrs and never ever bitched.  Not once did I ever hear her bitch.  Only thing came outta her mouth was how lucky she was to have loving children grand kids and food on the table.  Ive worked with day labor mexicans doing shit jobs nobody else wants and they never complained happy to have work.  I love all people except Canadians.  I love black people.  I cant stand these ignorant bastards thinking they are owed something.  Your race happens to lie cheat steal and kill the most.  Those facts alone are why people look at you funny.  Stop bitchin dont worry about the Government hoe bad white people treat you or shit on my flag that so many people have died so you even have the chance to bitch about it freely and improve yourself you ignorant fucks.  Meanwhile my toilet seat complexion ass will fly my colors proud and if you touch my property let alone my flag I will put my sights on you.  Okay Im done

Exact reason I posted on craigslist that I wouldn't sell it to just anybody so some dip shit like you wouldn't drive my Prestine 76 hull into the dock cause they didn't know WTF they were doing and mess up a boat that's lasted 40 years without a scratch.

I had a fuel issue before and had all the above is good stuff.

Another thing I want to add is some pickup tubes have checks in them which really can just end up restricting flow.  I think I read you checked your pickup tube which means you can pull em out I would double check they don't have the checks.

Could be crap in tanks
Small lines (I installed larger pickups all the way to carb)
Proper vents

The gauge is great idea it will be a great tool and would be a great way to begin the troubleshooting process that everyone has mentioned so you can figure out which issue you have
