    Before you button that thing up, you may want to take a hard look at the oil pickup support brackets. The brackets on the Milodon pickup have been known to fracture. Better to address it now than have it fail. It doesn't take long with you eye off the oil pressure gauge to take out a nice engine. The Milodon has one bracket, the one in the thread had 2 and one still failed.

    Looks good, why don't you tell us a little bit about? I see AFR heads although not fully cnc'd, and a production block so how about some details?

    Well, would you believe me if I said, "I dont know too much about it?"......My boat was taken to a friend (fellow boater/gearhead) a few hours away. He's doing the work when he has down time to do so......I'm sure I'll get a cut sheet on the build when complete, I can tell you its a CStraub Kit, stroker 496, pump gas motor, Top secret hyd roller cam, Afr heads im thinking 315?, Super victor intake, single worked over 1050 dom on top. I'll prolly use my old Basset headers off the last motor. Its been an on going project.....Like I said, its worked on when he can, hes quite busy with his job. Also the boat got new seals, a new rudder, new gauges and a complete steering upgrade. Thank goodness, money was spent while I was working!!!!!!! She should rock for sure when complete.....Heres pics of the boat and the old motor.

    Fair enough. lol The heads aren't 315's because those are fully cnc'd. I'd bet if it's a Straub deal they are 305's and might have the cnc chamber option. If so they ought to work out really well with one of his top secret hydraulic rollers. I'm running a small solid roller with my AFR's and I'm real happy with the results so far. Good luck with it and keep us posted.

    Uncle Bob is just trying to help you out. I know he is a ASSHOLE but he knows a little bit about these motors and parts. So you might want to take what he says and think about it.

    Certainly sounds like enough to get your adrenalin pumping and soil the the pants of unsuspecting passengers.

    If you're at all open to input, there was a recent conversation about the Super Vic being better suited on larger CID combos than yours. Just thought I'd throw it out there... food for thought.

    Now aren't you glad you got stuck keeping that thing???
    Need help finding this 1973 Sanger 18'6" bubble deck mahogany bottom and stringers I was living in Pomona when I sold her in 1979. Just wonder if she still exists

    Update Found my old Sanger 12/7/14 in Reno.

    I have seen it on 2 of my buddies engines. Both 8 second boats. 1, no pressure at idle and it did not kill itself. The other was totalled.
    Not my builds.
