Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Oil pressure location?
« on: October 21, 2011, 09:31:02 AM »
Where would be the best place to set a mechanical gauge directly on the motor of a mid 70's stock 460 with a performer rpm intake? Id like to see if my dash gauge is correct. It dosent  move much when i throttle on and off.

Boat Racing / 2012 C/J schedule?
« on: October 20, 2011, 07:24:43 PM »
Is there a schedule set yet? If not, when should I start looking for it? After watching some of the videos, I really want to go check this out. Especially anything at Parker.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Milodon oil pan thread?
« on: September 30, 2011, 08:24:50 PM »
By chance does anybody know the thread size of the oil plug for 10qt Milodon oil pan?
Ive been changing the oil through the dip stick tube but now the pump dosent want to suck it out now. So I would like to change to something like the fram plug or something else. Thanks in advance.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / BBF Build
« on: September 21, 2011, 11:41:39 AM »
So I have a good mid 70's 460 bored 30 over. Im looking to get 500+hp out of it. Whats it gonna take?
I have stock heads and crank but dont think, from what I've read, that these will help much.
 I've seen aluminum heads on the web for $900 and up. Do I need aluminum? What make/model should I be looking for? Same goes for the rest of the build.
 Should be easy enough without a blower right?
 Theres plenty of questions I dont know to ask so just start punchin away.
And thanks.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Zinc additive mixing?
« on: September 06, 2011, 05:04:40 PM »
Would you, could you mix 2 different brands of additive? I've heard that mixing different brands/weights of oil is a no-no.

Jet Pumps / Place diverter double seal install?
« on: September 01, 2011, 05:55:42 PM »
So I noticed a piece of plastic sticking out of my diverter knuckle. Thinking it was just a piece of trash I started yanking on it. Damn thing would not come out. Then I take the diverter apart to find where an o-ring should be, but instead I have a torn up straw. Come to find out there is an o-ring for that and promptly called JBP. It was here the next fricking day! :thumbup: Thanks Josh.

So does it matter where the split goes? Top, bottom?
Thanks again.

I'm sure most of you have seen this before. Possibly why my ride feels a little sluggish. :'(

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Next step?
« on: August 16, 2011, 07:59:25 PM »
After doing a little searching and failing, I've got a question.

Currently I'm running a fresh 460 with a slightly more than mild cam, roller rockers, Edelbrock RPM intake, 800 Demon carb, MSD distributor w/6m-2 and rev limiter set at 5K and pretty much stock everything else.
My pump is a 12JC-A stock w/manual place diverter and about 20 hrs on it. Seems to be good with no vibrations at any rpm.

My question is what is my next step for top end speed? Right now I'm running about 1mph for every 100 rpm. So 3400 rpm = 34 mph.

Thanks in advance.

Boat Showcase / '77 Hawaiian
« on: August 12, 2011, 07:15:36 AM »
Well, here she is. Broke the cam in yesterday, gonna take her up to Pyramid and finish breaking in the 460. I have an engine cover for it but the new intake sits about an inch taller so I need to modify it to fit.
If it stays together today Ill be headin to Parker or Laughlin in a week or 2.

« on: August 12, 2011, 06:58:12 AM »
What spares do you keep on hand while on the water? Back at the dock? At home?
Suggestions for a BBF with a 12J?
