Cleaning old glue is hands down the worst job IMO.  Makes you want to just re- carpet and move on.  Nice work! :thumbup:

so today I went and picked up some AN fittings steel braided hose and other hoses for the boat and builge pump (300$ n need to get more tomorrow  :banghead:) why did i go this route. and now I'm thinking I have tons of questions so here they go

number 1 can I find out what impeller I have in my jet without disassembling it? Becuse the motor that was in it was heavily horsed n on nitrous n my motor is in the 350ish range so im worried it wont turn the pump

number 2 do I have to run to dumps to run to builge pumps one automatic and one on a switch they ran to builge pumps into one dump but they were both on the same switch?

number 3 the boat shop that is doing the motor swap from the sleekcraft to the tahiti is interested in Trading their services that they're doing for me 4 the sleekcraft hull I was going to put that hull on here for you guys super cheap like 800 bucks or sowould you guys do that deal?

getting water in the tanks is VERY common with flip style tank fills and the fuel seperator is just added protection that you wont burn water... burning water is the best way to bend a rod.  so for the $40 cost, its great peace of mind.  also it gets all the big chunks from the gas tank and then you run a smaller inline filter to the carb.

as far as dumps for the bilge pump i wouldnt run 2 into one dump.  if you run one pump, its gonna go down the hose of the other and there is no check valve in the hose/pump as that could clog.  if you're gonna run to bilge pumps, run 2 dumps. 

fuel selector can be done at the fuel separator.  go to home depot and put a 1/2" PTFE ball valve on each inlet.  the fuel pump will suck from the open side.  if they're both open it'll pull from both but favor the shortest/easiest side.

okay so she came home today motor is in all new bearings and seals on the trailer on all four tires I didn't get all that much done but I had my stainless steel hose is soaking in clr  for like the last couple days so I brushed and scrubed them to where they look pretty decent now for the ones I'm going to reuse then I started working on my plumbing a little bit I ran into problems of my elbow fitting didnt clear the intake manifold and then  I tried to run a straight fitting and take the hose up and over it will hit the distributor on some kind of poked on that for the moment. and then I fought with the distributor to get it put in because the drive shaft for the oil pump in a Ford has a retaining clips you can't take it all the way out so that took for ever to get to distributor to go in where I wanted   it to be. Its back at top dead center and then I put my carburetor on I had to cut a piece of all thread  to be able to fit in it because it's bigger than normal Holly and then drill the top of my air cleaner whole out to accommodate the new all thread and then I remove the old builge pumps so I can get the new ones in and that's where i stopped for the day that's it all done day long for that

nice progress!  just a tip, trim down those stringer bolts.  nothing sucks more than snagging your foot on those bad boys at the river.  or turn em around so the long end is on the inside.

okay so the fuel is all plumbed and half the water lines are done I'm thinking about putting the header gate valve up by the where I sit in the front what do you guys think of that? Also I'm trying to find out where I'm going to dump my stainless steel water dump either in the back of the boat or up front by too so I can see that the motor is always cycling water what do you guys think of that?

Installed a new bilge dump so i can use the old ones for duel bilge pumps. Then i got her wired n went to get gas n trans fluid for pd got back home added gas and she just turned didnt really sputter so i tagged the gas n set a fire in the boat  :banghead: so i decided that just checking if she will start without headers was not a good idea :screwy:. Put headers on n still no boom just rotates im stuck.
