    Default Biesemeyer with "drop chines" Intake/Loader/Shoe setup

    I'm obviously a bit of a newbie to this neck of the woods so allow me to first say: Hello my name is Scott and just like the rest of you folks I have a problem...,, its an addicion I've fought my entire life.. I'm a hotrod project junky...

    There you go I've admitted that I have a problem, so now on the the subject at hand ;-)

    I picked up a Biesemeyer hull with dropped chines, along with the 12JR pump setup that was ran in the boat.. I'm in the beginning stages of rigging the boat, and I would Love to hear any real world info on what these boats like as far as Intake/Loader & Shoe setup..

    I had started a thread reguarding the transom housing and I've had a few people really help out with photo's and answering any silly questions I've had..

    I also dug through a couple 5 orso year old threads where a couple of guys had ran these pretty hard and it was great reading, and I'm hoping a few people that know what does & doesnt make these hulls work will chime in..

    At an attempt to keep the first post of this thread from being a short story book but since I know this will come up... I'm a little up in the air on exactly how I will power the boat, but I'm leaning towards somewhat progressily powering the boat by going ahead with a very tame SBC that I have thats pretty much ready to go... I have nearly enough stuff to put together another pretty heavy hitting solid roller, aluminum headed, BME rodded monster in a small package, but It's gonna be a little while on it and just not top priority right this moment... I also have a pretty decent 511 CID BBC that may push the boat pretty hard in the future, but for now I'd like to concentrate on getting the boat as close to water ready as I can with what I have right now if that makes any sense..

    So where I'm at now is that I'd like to have the intake setting in the boat pretty soon, but I'm wanting to get the best advise and insight I can before setting it.. I in no way claim to be any sort of jet guy and although this is far from first rodeo feel free to talk to me like a third grader.. I can get pictures, measurments, part numbers, ect. that anybody may need

    The shadow cast off the straight edge shows a good image of the shape of the keel... The picture with the tape measure is showing from the center of the keel to the strake edge of the keel.. The stakes on the outer edge of the keel are right at about 1/2" above to lowest point of the rounded keel...
    Also as you can see int he pics the keel starts to flatten out some as it gets to the intake area, but never completly flattens out

    Thanks in advance & bring on the info, Scott

    Here are a few pics of the intake, loader, & shoe set up that was ran in the boat... Any and all of the pics that have parts that appear to be mounted in the boat are nothing other than "mock up" shots..

    Also I do not plan to refinish the entire boat at this time, but will go ahea and redo the keel area from just a little bit in front of the intake area back to the transom to clean up some not so great paintwork... Then maybe latter on flip the boat when the timing is right to redo the entire hull at the level of workmanship that it really deserves..

    This shot gives an idea of how far the pump setback is.. It's set back all the way against the transom as far as it will go without cutting the lower section of the transom..

    Thanks bro, I just read it not long ago.. Thanks for the info & help !!

    It's been crazy land here for the past week orso.. I have a 16yr old who just got 4 wisdom teeth cut out, and started her first job all within a week, so that along with 2 kids and a wife that teaches middle school it's Crazy season at home with school starting back this week.. So that being said I'm about to devote some more time to the Biesemeyer again soon.. I contacted someone earlier about some epoxy so I can get the intake I decide to use set..

    Fyi,
    Thats a "R" intake. Does not load the top of the impeller in the original configuration. What l understand it works well with lots of hp, like 1500+?
    They can be modified to work well with a standard loader boss cut into them. It also requires a plate to be welded to the top above the loader boss. When the boss is machined it will go threw the top of the intake.
