    Default 1977 wriedt jet boat winter build

    Well i am new here this summer and only made it to one event. I have met some of you and hope to meet more at the winter party. I bought my boat this summer and i have had alot of bad luck with it. So i am going to go thru the whole thing this winter so i can spent next summer on the water and not working on it.

    This is when i first got it. Its a 77 19ft wriedt with a 460.

    I ran it a few times with the water logs and everything was good. Then i threw on the bassett headers it came with. The first time out with them on my second lap around the lake i threw a rod out of the oil pan. I didn't want to spend the time to rebuild the engine so i found a junk yard one to get me thru the season. Well that one lost all oil pressure one it was warm. Then a friend of mine said he had a built 460 he wanted to get rid of. So i got that it was broke in and that's it no hrs on it. Its a 460 .030 over with roller rockers and 429 super cobra jet heads. So i installed all of that and it ran good for about a month. Then at the holloway reservoir meet i sucked up a bunch of rocks and trashed the impeller. So decide i would take it to browser's for hot boat weekend. I made a good run down the the sand bar from the campground and back. When i get back to the campground it missed and started running rough. Well turns out I dropped a valve.

    I have all the jet pump tools if you plan on rebuilding the pump.

That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    Thanks rat i might take you up on that. I have it torn down and its not pretty. The nice thing about being a machinist and having the shop at my disposal is i can make some of my own tools.

    The valve probably stuck in the guide. You can't run a street motor in a boat with open cooling. All the clearances need to be looser. The block and heads stay ice cold but the oil heats up the pistons and everything else.

    I have the spline socket for the shaft, impeller puller and a custom socket to fit the impeller nut. Jetboat is long gone but I kept the tools just incase.

    That bowl has seen some abuse. Wouldn't hurt to clean up all the nicks on the vanes. Thats a high dollar bowl you got there.

    I am going to go thru the whole thing this winter. I also want to stiffen up the hull a little. I am going to order some new over the transom headers so they will fit my 429 scj heads the ports are alot bigger then a stock 460.

    Whats the best way to finish them flat on the bottom and angle the top. I am sure you dont want them sharp so round the edge a little?

    When that front blade broke off it took out everthing else on the way out the bowl..Stainless or bronze impeller is the way to go.
