Well Hello Everyone, Like I said Im New to the Jet boat Scene.
I Picked up an Avenger Boat. Im guessing a 1970 something..
I measured it form the furthest point on the back to the tip and come up with 19.5'
Does this sound right ? A 19.5 Avenger ?
the Cee Bee Mfg. Plate on the inside says Model 185 ? That mean 18.5' ?
It had a olds 455 ?, im pretty sure, but its gone,
All i have is the Jet which is a Berkley Jet 12JC. I dont have a bell housing, or mounts. I do have some olds heads, and Some Cool looking Hardin Marine Valve covers, the flywheel. and thats about it.
It has all the Drive equipment, pedal & cable, steering works. Wiring harness, looks like most of the hoses, and stuff for the engine, bilge pump.
Gas tank mounted under the bow, still has gas in it(bad).
Been gutting it out to get to the bottom of everything, and seems, the floor probably needs replaced.
The Hull, looks good as for as I can tell, there is a spot by the Gas filler where the glass is broken. but other than that i dont really see anything major (YET)..
Any Help or Recomendations Will Be Appreciated..
Heres the Pics
Oh Forgot to mention, that I will prolly be swapping to a Chevy engine, do to ease of available parts.
Probably a BBC.
