First of all I want to thank all the folks from this board & a couple of others that have helped this build become a reality for my neighbor, by either donating or selling him parts at an unbelieveable price! He has been boatless for about 10 years. Finaly found a jet boat in need of a bit of work that he could afford. Scared as many of the marine parts up he could find over the last summer, and this what we managed to put together so far.
found a used BBC (cheap)
So inspected the bottom end, looks great!
some of the parts he collected during the summer.
I installed the timing set, marine pan & pickup, even found some old MT Valve covers and a tunnel ram with a couple 650's (I Rebuilt)
I had some old accell wires & distributor,found some logs.
I made some feet for the engine plates & bolted her in.
shes almost there!
Found an old scoop and polished it up, the heighth is perfect!
Almost there! thanks again everyone, you know who you are. Its fine folks on this forum like yourselves that make us all better people, by letting us get someone back on the water! Stev Mac
