Engine Mechanical / Electrical / 455 Olds Intake Mani Gasket
« on: June 02, 2010, 05:21:36 AM »
To all Olds gurus...

I have heared many ways to install a manifold gasket now I'm ready to hear it from some true 455 Olds Jet boat gurus.

Purchased a tunnel ram for my 455 so I have to replace the intake manifold gasket...silicone the water ports in the front and back but what about the rubber gaskets??? I heared those are infamous for leaking. Some guys say silicone the crap out of them, some guys say no silicone at all but on the edges of the rubber gasket cause silicone under pressure get slippery and will push the gaskets out causing them to piss oil hehe.

What's true, what's a myth? Getting ready to tear into it today.

The No Wake Zone / New here with a 73 Bandito

Hey guys new to this forum and loving it so far...

Been going out to Parker for approx 4 years now with the ol' lady and her family. Her ol' man owns a Sanger and her older brother owns a Jet boat with a 460 Ford. Always loved watching the Jet boats rumbling up and down the river and finally 2 weeks ago decided to purchase my own.

After looking at a dozen Sleekcrafts and Tahitis I ran into a 73 Bandito, yes Ban-friggin-dito. Just liked the was this boat looked with a little wing in the back. Came with a 455 Olds and a Berk Jet with a place diverter (jetohhhvator hehe). This is my first boat ever and allthough I wrenched on old school muscle for the past 6 years, Jet boats are a different kinda animal but nevertheless still love it. Got a long ways to go and learn so for future posts and my own sake take it easy on me and my noob questions guys.

Here's my question: anyone on here know anything about Bandito Jet boats? How common, any good, quality etc... any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thx in advance.

Got this manifod when I purchased the boat. Recently switched over to a tunnel ram so no need for this mani anymore. Used for one season. Will shine right up. First 150 takes it.
