    I'm wrapping up the mechanical work on the Canyon, so I started thinking about the setup. While I don't know the impeller or HP, I do know the loader is a blocker with the ramps flush with the keel. The shoe is a bit odd, but essentially a flat shoe. The ride plate is only 1* up but I'm used to...

    In the spirit of continual testing I mounted the video camera off my ski tow pointing aft to see what was going on back there. First impression is "man that wake looks big" and then it dawned on me the camera was hanging upside down and only about 16" off the floor. I'm not thinking I'm getting...

    I have built a stern drive hot rod from a outboard boat. Running a 300 he Chevy alpha. The trim is a just ed exactly to 21 inches at the trim pistons. If I trim up a touch more with the trail or switch I gain more speed. ? Is does the transom angle matter in the trim measurement. My transom...

  8. V-Drives
    Thought I saw somewhere that there's a formula to find the strut angle with some measurements. Anyone out there that can tell me the formula or what my strut angle is? Top front of strut barrel measures 2 3/4" to bottom. Back measures 5 1/8". Barrel measures 18" OAL. Thanks:))THumbsUp

    Didn't see any other place to post this so I'll ask here. I've been looking at lots of pictures of used boats with trim tabs. It looks like some are mounted such that the bottom of the plates are horizontal and some are mounted at at the same angle as the V in the bottom of the boat. So I'm...

    I need a angle adapter for a Casale gear box like the one in the pic BUT .... I need it to be a 1 to 1 adapter. The one in the pic is a Stewart Warner and it's stamped .500 and it doesn't work with my Jones tach that Valley Speedo and Tach just rebuilt to 1 to 1 specs :duh: Thanks David

    I have a buddy with a 1977 Hondo T-deck Jet boat 17.5'. Looks like it shoulda been a v-drive but the original owner set it up as a jet. He is in the process of restoring it, and we are going to be resetting the intake soon. Any recommendations on intake angle? I havent found anything...

    I had to remove my intake (old putty) 0n my 1975 18 ft KURTIS 500 jetboat and had it machined for a shoe. when i went to reinstall it i noticed the the center area between stakes (keel) start to come up about 20 in. in front of the intake about 1/4 in. and goes back down to true keel at the...

    Does anyone sell a tool /spacer so you can square to the nozzle bushing to use an angle finder to set the nozzle angle on a place diverter FTN ?? I can make 1 but if they're cheap I just thought I would buy 1 ??????????
  15. GN7 On the Dyno
    OK, so when I dropped my distributor, I noticed it doesn't sit flat on the intake. A quick google search shows that a BBC distributor is actually at a 5* angle. I've never notice this before, or at least to this extreme visually. I measured my dist with a digital angle finder and sure enough...
