    Hello All, It has been some time. As most of you know I was living in Europe. I have now returned to the US and bought a home in beautiful New Bern, NC. I like the weather here and the is no snow to shovel. My wife and I still have all belongings in Michigan and will retrieve soon. I still have...

    Not new to boating, but new to having a jet boat. Always wanted one since I was a kid, and since I fool around with muscle cars and such, it was a natural fit. Boat is a 1978 19ft Bahner running a 460 Ford with over transom headers. I have plenty to learn about it still, but have had it on...

    All the engines I have built have been with solids. I'm doing a 348 thats going to be a cruiser, but I would still like to check valve timing, push rod length and valve to piston clearance. Any way to do this? It's a flat tappet cam. Thanks Tim

    Haven't been here for awhile, just really busy with life stuff. Hope everyone is doing well. Sure seems like I can not look at any news anywhere about anything having to do with OUR Country and not get pissed off. Part of the reason I haven't been on much. I just really see nothing positive at...
  7. GN7 On the Dyno
    Hi, I have a good (fresh) 454 that has been sitting for many years.... wow, like just shy of 30. Time flies when you're having fun. It was in a hooligan street truck, PO had to go to prison for a bit and I bought it hearing it run and it was strong. Never used it so I just started to...

    When checking camshaft runout, is it acurate enough to use a set of home made wood V-blocks? A while back, i made a set of v-blocks for checking crankshaft run out and it works prety good and i have bouble checked it with checking the crank in a block, sitting on the two end bearings and get...

  10. GN7 On the Dyno
    Getting the last of the parts to put my boat together and wanted to make sure that I have not missed anything. Here is what I am running for the fuel system: Imco tank plumbed with 10 AN to a 100 micron filter then to a Race Pumps 1600 fuel pump. From the pump, 8 AN to a Race Pumps 5011...

    I called around today to check on my HP numbers and impeller performance! As per charts shown @ 6100 RPM with a B HiHelix I should be making around 797 HP! Then I started checking what power it takes to turn an AA and A standard SS impeller! If all of my thinking works (:)sphss) I should be...

    My boat has a T400 with a flex plate instead of torque converter. Since I've owned the boat I never thought much of just pulling out the dipstick at the time as I change the engine oil. I know you normally check ATF with the motor running and the tranny warm and it's in park. Park is locked out...

    Just got the kinks worked out of my engine... Damn MSD and 660 Holleys. :D Anaway, even though it is late in the year, it might get wet for the first time tomorrow with those high 70's coming. Sorry if the video isn't up to par, it is my first time running everything by myself... Jason...
