    Default BBF Plumbing

    Hey Guys,

    Somebody had a handy dandy plumbing diagram for a 460 with OT headers and I can't seem to find it in the search tool. Can you guys help me out I'm trying to verify all is correct with my set up. Even if you don't have a diagram a brief description of how it's done will be very helpful.

    Thanks
    Shhh!! Can you hear that?? GJ

    I know which one you're talking about, but I couldn't find it either so I'll just tell you how mine is routed. I have water from jet pump to a T splitting water into front cover (water pump cover). Then two lines out of intake manifold, one to dump out the back and the other to a header water control valve ( you can use a ball valve) by the driver's seat then back to a bassett/rewarder header T then to headers.
    Too much horsepower is almost enough!!!


    My boat is fast.....on Craiglist or EBay.


    I've been 340mph+ with a boat........In the back of a C130!

    Thanks brother!! That's how I have mine except for the header control valve. Hows the header control valve working out for you? Isn't that what the tee valve is supposed to do? Is it more of a fine tuning thing or a must have?

    Thanks Again

    I used a ball valve at first and then one of the billet valves later just as insurance. I've heard horror stories of bassett valves getting stuck etc. and the BBF is more prone (depending on cams) to reversion than the bbc. I mainly used it to shut off water at docks and no wake zones to prevent any drama. The only problem I had was headers blued faster with water off, but I never had to worry about hydraulicing a rod.

    Another note, one time I ran it about 30 minutes dry and melted the vinyl on the side panels lol. I also had a heck of a time getting blueing off headers!!!

    On the boat I have now, I run logs and will step up to lightning headers later.

    I did mine a little different. #10 off the jet to a TEE. One side of the TEE to the drivers side of the timing cover, the other side is reduced to #8 and goes to the Bassett valve. At the timing cover is a TEE so that both sides of the motor can be fed. Out of the intake with one # 10 line (dump) to a 1/4 turn valve. The valve allows regulation of water to the headers.

    Thanks. Forgot to mention that there's a valve before the Bassett valve so that I can run dry if necessary. Headers are ceramic coated. And of course a gate valve off the jet.

    Blue Job is the most effective chrome cleaner and easiest to work with yellowing/bluing on headers.
