I just bought a 69 weimans project and plan on having it done for the upcoming season. This is my first jet boat so I might ask some dumb questions, but I'm looking forward to cruisin Havasu and Parker and any other spots I don't know about yet.

Taco'd "a person or people that show up with one lake lice and a family of 50 and cram 3 people at a time on it with no disregard to boating rules or ethics. Usualy crap in toilets and throw shit paper in trash cans. Hang out at the boat ramp like its a swimming hole. Have zero insurance on anything they own and dont give two shits less about your property."

im sticking with the small block for now. i already have lots of small block stuff so it should be an easy rebuild. I'm having a hell of a time finding some used headers though...

Sand paper takes paint off pretty easy .
Hit the bulky stuff with a sander and the tight stuff by hand .

Dont worry , someone will tell you how to do it correctly later .  ;D

I'm having a hell of a time finding some used headers though...

Check with Tom at JBP, I think I remember him saying he had a couple sets of small block headers available.

JPB Thanks for the welcome. Assuming this is Tom. I heard you might have some used small block OT headers over there...Let me know I don't want to have to build my own...I'm also gonna need some pump rebuild stuff but it's not apart yet so I'll have to get back to you on that stuff...Thanks
